It's the base commanders fault.

Our troops may very well have lost their edge to 3+ deployments. PTSD & suicides are @ highs. Troops very well may being hosed on PSTD treatment:

Less than 1% of the population is carrying the fighting load* & we are screwing them in treatment as there is no money. I fully expect this is a bipartisan effort.

If our country has an interest in these foreign adventures; we should be willing to pay the freight rather allowing these war costs to be off budget.

It's not just that fewer people serve in the military (about one percent of the population, compared to 12 percent during World War II and 3-5 percent during the Cold War)
