That is the benefit of living in a country where the military behaves itself and are genuinnely respected for what they do. And not living in a country where the military rule to serve their own interests, and are feared and despised by the ordinary people.
In Britain the armed forces are generally held with respect and esteem because they are professionals, we have, like the US, no tradition of military rule but civilian control and accountability through a properly elected parliament, backed by Queens Regulations. Having said that, our armed forces are involved in two conflicts that are very unpopular and controversial in Britain, for which the politicians and not the military are blamed.
