Redskins fullback Eric Kettani was a graduate of the Naval Academy. He worked out a deal with the Navy and the NFL to end his Navy service in exchange to be a recruiter for 7 years after his time in the NFL. Was he right to do this?

My son just graduated from USNA where he played football and is now a Marine. Roger Staubach served 1964-68 David Robinson served 1983-87. You sign a contract giving the military 5 years and its not a surprise or a secret. He needs to serve!!

The vast differences in the categories is very interesting.

It was mutually agreed, all is fair.

I went to a military school. If I was offered a multi-million dollar job I doubt I would be offered the same deal. It also means someone else will go to Afghanistan or somewhere else in his place (and possibly die). So is that fair? No.

A recruiter for seven years? The navy is lucky they got the deal. From what I hear, being a recruiter is an awful job.
