1. I like that last para:

“A lot of people want to frame this issue as if the American people, particularly politicians, want us to do more with less,” said Luke Schumacher, 22, a fourth-year cadet from Indianapolis. “If that’s the case, we’re playing a fool’s game. The fundamental challenge for our generation of officers is not learning how to do more with less but selectively determining what we’re going to do and what we’re going to do well.”

And stop depending on mercenaries, draft them and give them the benefits they deserve, they are citizens, not employees, and they deserve much better treatment for the sacrifices they make.
