2. We, the People, know how to do this.

We have done it before. Now that we put a lot of the load on the reserves, it's not so hard to pivot and shrink--and that is what needs to happen.

USAF is getting ready to do a Selective Early Retirement Board for 0-5 and 0-6, that will break up their logjam re: promotion flow.

You'll see some iteration of that elsewhere too--either voluntary calls or "Out You Go's" with the other Services....
