What does the Military think of Obama's first 100 days?

Looks like a solid B, and given the current political leanings of the US military that's saying a lot:

In his campaign for president, Barack Obama pledged a swift end to the war in Iraq, a new commitment to the defeat of al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a strong emphasis on veterans' care and military families and a critical look at Pentagon spending, strategy and conduct in the war on terrorism.

Since his inauguration 100 days ago, Obama has made good on his promise for sweeping change in the military, a new tone in the White House's relationship with troops and a personal investment in easing the burden of military service.

But take a look at the comments following the story. Makes you understand why the Justice Department might be concerned about radicalization of military veterans.
