Shipping out to Ebola country

The TV news says we are sending 3000 troops to West Africa to help in the Ebola epidemic.  I wonder how the troops feel about that.  Me, I'd rather go to Iraq and bag me some ISIS.  That Ebola stuff is very dangerous, with a mortality rate worse than 60%.   You have a better chance of surviving a rifle bullet than that.

The McLaughlin Shouting Hour on PBS was talking about this issue just this morning. Someone made the suggestion that US troops who came down with Ebola would be quarantined over seas to avoid spreading the disease back in the US. I wonder how the troops feel about that idea.
