“Cost”

Volume 8 | Spring 2018

by Jason Arment

Civilians wonder at the expense
attached to a salvo
of Tomahawk missiles
but don’t flinch

at the 500k attached to every
dead kid in military fatigues
not just an expenditure but
a lost investment of millions
of dollars of training

because Americans
don’t think of people
as investments
