1. Maybe the plans could include

pay scales that don't require food aid, staying out of unnecessary conflicts, and teaching them skills that are useful outside the military. My dad came back from WW2 with experience with heavy machinery, as well as the supervisory skills of a master sergeant, and was hired by his national guard company commander for a job that lasted until he retired. Now, with so much support from outside contractors, the only thing they learn is how to shoot a gun, or a bigger gun, or an even bigger gun.
