but that's my gut feeling. It's all about politics and money these days. IMO privatizing base housing was a huge mistake. But I'm sure they have a stack of studies and PowerPoint presentations (lies) that say otherwise.
Sorry, I really am becoming a grumpy cynical old bastard.
I am too, at the ripe old age of 29. It's amazing they want to cut all these programs, and expect us still to join.
Lets cut BAH, medical, commissaries, pay, retirement and expect people to still join. Don't forget the 25k they want out of the AF by 2017. The 130k they want out of the Army, 15k out of the Navy. They also want to scrap the A-10 and the KC-10 (which I am ok with), as well as a whole regiment in the Army and an aircraft carrier.
Pretty soon homeland security is going to outnumber the military and have better machinery. Maybe it's what they are wanting to do? Get rid of DHS, and bring us home from Germany, Korea, Japan and put us on the frickin borders. Not one single person would get through then.
