Cala: I worked on Campbell Barracks back in the early 90's. The 4-Star CG (we still called him the CINC back then - a throw back to the Cold War) was notorious for lengthy briefings and endless staff meetings. We would wait for our turn to brief, trapped in the conference room for hours. On one occasion after about 5 hours of mindless slideware without a break for any thing to eat, an enlisted porter brought a roast beef sandwich in for the CINC. The rest of us waited several more hours for the meeting to end and had a snack bar meal. I guess it hasn't improved much. I hoped the transition from peacetime Army to a war footing would have brought warriors to the top. I also recall back after the Cold War ended and we drew down the force we actually had a few more GO authorized. My recollection was 400 GO during the peak years of the 80's with 760K soldiers. The reduce the force to 480K and keep 400 GOs. There's your problem. They don't have enough to do and that's why they keep bird-dogging other folks wives...Duty First!sgtbill
