@kurrentpcv2 I don't think I know anything, really, certainly not enough to generalize about thousands of vastly different PCVs and their experiences. I never made that specific point at all in this essay.
YUP. I think, for most PCVs, your time in service either makes distinctly MORE of an asshole or distinctly LESS of one. And I think very little of that has to do with where you're placed.
