These two lovely teen agers most likely had fancy cell phones, Xboxes, and who knows what else? This Christmas I was involved collecting toys, and gift certificates for another group of 19 year olds who are enlisted personal stationed at West Point, what a huge difference between the two groups. We all should be ashamed that soldiers who have been in war zones come home to be on the poverty lines, while these papered brats go around abusing dope and enticing 16-year-old girls to use.
