Business and the military

The “militarization” of the bureaucracy, in my view, is a non-issue because their numbers are puny compared to the millions of bureaucrats in the national and local governments. Additionally, I would argue that if ex-soldiers had the attributes to lead, advise, endure long hours, handle tough situations, and maintain their equanimity, they should be given equal opportunities to land a civilian job.

While critics scan the surface that stop at the uniform, I prefer to search beneath their veneer. For example, working with the late-Gen. Gaudencio Tobias (ret.) at Tourism in the late 1980s and early ‘90s validated our judgment that proved beneficial to the country’s reputation. His disciplinarian ways and administrative skills helped preserve and maintain Camp John Hay after the US Air Force departed earlier than scheduled.
