Sometimes I am amazed at how sheltered some people are.
The blog below finds it ironic that a university would like to teach business ethics on a navy base. I think the irony is supposed to be something about teaching ethics to memebers of the military.
What I find so disturbing is the image of the military... killing machines, etc...
Having been a military wife for about ten years, and having actually taught on a military base in Nebraska, I can tell you that members of the military are generally thoughtful, considerate and polite as students. They respect the authority of their instructor and they are motivated to get good grades, as the military won't pay for grades under a C.
In fact, the best class I've ever taught in logic was on a military base and met late on Friday afternoon. They were a cohesive group who could follow directions. They also had a great sense of humor and really seemed to appreciate the fact t hat I would come and teach them at that terrible time of the academic week. I'd teach every Friday from 4-7 if I thought my class would be that good.
