This a quote from Air Commodore whoever, saying that it is no wonder that the armed forces have come equal second in a happiness poll. Equal second with HAIRDRESSERS!! Read this drivel, although some of what he said is true. Reference the bold, I see a retraction or a "It was taken out of context" statement shortly. HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY. According to Air Commodore Tim Winstanley, Director Training and Education within the Ministry of Defence, it's not a great surprise that the nation's military personnel profess to be happy in their work: "Individuals join the Armed Forces for a huge variety of reasons. Like all occupational areas, there are issues which cause our people to be dissatisfied. However, the evidence we gather indicates that it is the variety, the job satisfaction and excitement of military service that provides overall contentment with the roles they perform. "What comes through very clearly is that they are proud of what they do, with 91% of our most recent survey indicating a belief that the UK Armed Forces are the best in the world."
