Very true, but if if you opinion is based on ignorance or misperception, and you have no wish to change it, then I would see a very limiting career for you as a US Army officer (assuming you make it). A good officer learns to adapt quickly, be mentally flexible and accept cultures (good and bad traits) quickly and communicate accordingly.. this means loosing the attidue to cultures you dont like for what ever reason is a must... Its good to flag this now, cos later on, you wont have the time to take such time for reflection and self adjustment... I suggest you choose wisely.....
