When threatened with budget cuts, the heads of an organization present the more drastic alternatives to cutting actual waste.
Every organization wastes money. When I was in the corporate world I saw tremendous waste. When I was in the military I saw even more. The individual men and women in the military deserve our greatest respect. But as an organization, the military is another government agency subject to the same tendencies to bloated bureaucracy and fiscal negligence as any other.
How about cutting out a few generals? The military has become a slush fund for defense contractors and generals and other high ranking officers who become lobbyists and TV talking heads. They never met a new, expensive weapons system, plane, or ship that they didn’t love!
The military has become so politicized that I wonder how it operates at all. Billions wasted and still the troops are underpaid and don’t have the equipment they need.
love your name...must have been in Hawaii once...LOL. As to your post - NAIL ON THE HEAD!!
