    Good? Seriously? What is your problem man? Without proper training, we can't do our jobs. I guess this is your freedom of speech. Your welcome.

    So cutting entitlement spending isn't an option? They are willing to freeze military are SS pay but they are fine with giving congress a pay increase. You'd rather the government grow while out military shrinks? Liberal logic at it's fucking finest...

    Nope. Congress, welfare and the BS medical should be first. Please tell me how cutting military training can help?

    I think it's just DOD civilian hires that are being frozen so you could possibly still be granted a waiver.

    same shit as everyone else
    And that's why I got out last year!!! Navy has been locked up aviation side since 09 and half the time they cut the best techs. 900 people all trying to get the same position. Recruiters around here have no job either. It's locked up in all branches and its not going to change any time soon.

    Yep, press release cuts in the human side, instead of making the hard weapons cuts for some tank or jet in someone's congressional district.

    I have 10 years left in the AF to retire. I'm not going anywhere, unless I get non-vol'd to TI duty.

    That what they choose to do cut for the press release. Can anyone seriously think we aren't spending enough on military?

    Those of us in the military who see how bad things are at the current moment. Sorry, when my building is falling apart that I work in, but we can't find money to fix it? 2 buildings that I work out of are condemned, but we still have to work out of them since we have no money?
