General McChrystal, a human being

And like most human beings he has done some good things and some bad things. It appears that since he has left the Army he has done more good things. Some examples: advocacy of gun control; espousing his belief that "every city and town needs to be at risk" in wartime; questioning our excessive use of private military contractors.

Today in an article entitled ‘You Don’t Have to Wear a Military Uniform to Serve Your Country’, he is pushing the idea that our young people should spend a year "teaching, tutoring, and mentoring disadvantaged students; cleaning neighborhoods in need of renewal; renovating homes in blighted areas; and helping veterans reintegrate into their communities".
