I served my country for far longer than you did, and I assure you that the crew of the Gravely couldn't have cared less about the number of events that cost tens of thousands of dollars on people other than the crew. A $25k fireworks display that no one saw? A reception with a handful of crew and FOUR-HUNDRED "guests?"
Second, I know of no requirement that a citizen serve in the military before he or she is welcome to express an opinion or ask a question regarding how his or her tax money is spent.
Finally, if you and the county commissioners allocated that $25k because of some nostalgic memories about your military service, what does that say about your ethics, judgment, and intelligence?
Is being an arrogant ass a formal requirement to be chairman of the county commissioners...or do we just chalk it up to coincidental, sequential bad luck?
