Fixing our broken military

Defense Blogs I follow:

I tend to nag and complain about the budget problem facing our military. However complaining doesn’t fix the problem. The worst are filling with a passionate intensity. From going over budget on weapons system to cutting needed programs, the good idea fairy has been busy. Some would say that the SMA and Chief of Staff can’t see forest (retention and the future of the army) for the trees (grooming standards, pt and other nit picks).

What’s needed is a conversation about IDEAS. Good ideas. Not “army stupid” like quibbling over tats or making a bigger tank. What should the future army look like? Grooming? PT? Do we need a new rifle/tank/radio/etc..?

What is to be done?

Let the conversation begin.
