Another benefit of defense spending is that it keeps people employed.I have never understood why it's called "The Forgotten War." I can remember reading about in comic books in the 1950s, I recall the "Korea Story" episode of the Steve CanyonTV program of the late 1950s.
One thing I like to do is tell those who view defense spending as a drain on the country's resources is that I will throw them into the Quantum Leap Transporter and they will find themselves as a GI on July 5, 1950. They can come back a year later and then weill discuss defense spending.
