After serving 20+ years, I now how much waste there is in the military. Do we REALLY need an admiral for EVERY ship in the Navy? How many cannon balls does the Army really need? Do we really intend to send troops into battle on horseback with the cavalry?
Cut the military budget IN HALF and bring our troops home from Europe, Japan, Asia, Africa, etc, etc, etc.
