OMG Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates to Join Uber

This is just terrible.

According to a post to the Uber website, Gates will join the ride-sharing company as chairman of Uber Military.

From Uber:
Transitioning from military to civilian life can be challenging, but at Uber we understand that veterans are some of our nation’s most talented and skilled leaders. That’s why we’re excited to launch UberMILITARY: our new program to introduce service members, veterans and military spouses to Uber and empower them as entrepreneurs and small business owners. Over the next 18 months, we will on-board 50,000 members of the military community to the Uber platform.
We are honored to have the former Secretary of Defense, Dr. Robert Gates, serve as volunteer Chairman of the UberMILITARY Advisory Board. The board—which will include members to represent every branch of the military—will continue to put forward new initiatives to positively impact military communities.

It is great that these people are now in the private sector, but it is outrageous to promote the idea that what they did when they were government trained killers means they need some kind of special treatment after they are done killing.

  1. All these commercials touting how well trained the military is and yet when they get out they need all kinds of support to get normal jobs.
