DOD announced new units today which will be rotating in over the next few months. There are a few things I have noticed over the last few rotations announcements. No more National Guard units being activated and deployed and what seems to be a lot more higher headquarters and not as many trigger-pullers.
In my humble opinion, the last thing Afghanistan needs is more people running around looking for uniform violations and seeing who is wearing a reflective belt or not. They need more guys willing to go “outside the wire” and do the hard job that needs to be done.
Aw well, I guess that is why they don’t allow senior NCOs to become Generals…
