Do soldiers love Beetle Bailey?

It's a question that pops up - often. Isn't there a more contemporary comic strip about the military?

Do we run Beetle Bailey because soldiers and others in/retired from the military like it, or because we think they like it?

I've heard variations on both questions since we began the test comic strips a week ago. Here's the skinny.

I haven't found a better military comic strip -- and I'd love to. Much like Dilbert and us folks in office land, the military is a never-ending source of humor, intended or otherwise.

So, if you see a military strip you love more than Beetle, let me know.

Do folks in the military or retired from the military love Beetle? I don't know. Some readers identify themselves as military, but not all.

Whether you're in the military or not, feel free to share your thoughts on the strip. I find it too predictable to read with regularity. I have plenty of relatives in/out of the military and grew up near an Air Force base with lots of Air Force families in my neighborhood, but I stopped snickering at the antics ages ago.

What about you?

Yes, sure it's predictable, much of life is! This "old soldier" (WWII,Korea, VietNam) says it beats the heck out of Diesel Sweeties or Lio. So do the new ones (Family Tree & Cul de Sac)
