About 5 times as many as WWII. That should answer the question of "whats going on with all these Flag Officers?"

Short answer?

Too many.

Longer answer: GO (general officer) billets DoD-wide have been slashed over the last 2 years from waaaaaay too many to just too many. Full disclosure: I stepped into a GO billet that was downgraded to O-6 while I was in mid-stride about 2 years ago. That’s the way the cookie crumbles.
