Barry will make the speech between the front and back nine. Probably make a few appologies on how evil the USA is and then he'll tell about a new 'crisis' he wants fix.

THe shift is actually in the words. "Combat" shift's to "Support." So the first Cav and the 10th mountain division combat brigades (that were just called up and will deploy next month) are now Support Brigades. Their mission does not change, just the name. You see, the name polled well with their focus groups and that's all he needs to make his idiot supporters feel good. Like changing Illegal invaders to undocumented workers. It's all in the focus group polling.

LOL. Very funny. Sadly, I have to think you're exactly right too. I feel so bad for soldiers that have this kind of Political correctness to deal with.
