20. Name the last time a military leader said we need less military or less money in the military budget
Biggest mistake Johnson made was listening to the U.S. military.

Possibly the Best thing that JFK did was refuse to allow the CIA and the U.S. military lead him into war with Cuba/Russia.

My favorite U.S. military budget story: The librarian at the Chaplain's School ordering every book on the book list from M to Z because the fiscal year was ending and he had not spent all of the money in the budget for the current fiscal year yet.

(The budget for the following fiscal year is based on what was spent during the prior fiscal year.)
