What we do know is that the Greeks have a spending problem that even the present American administration would have trouble understanding. Their military doesn't help much with the problem, it seems.
When a military officer dies, his pension continues for his unwed daughter as long as she remains unwed.Considering the Greek marriage stats - that is just pathetic. Don't just smile - with our contributions to the Greek economic bailout - you're children are borrowing money from the Chinese to pay for it.
As for some of our military retiree welfare mentality - that is a subject for a different day and a different post.
