Military investing for a less costly, fit and healthy force
from The Huffington Post
William Dietz writes: "Top military officers described threats to our military's readiness this week before the Senate and House Armed Services Committees in appeals to boost spending. I was struck by Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Glenn Walters’ call for 3,000 more Marines, because by his estimation, our current force is “insufficiently manned, trained and equipped.” Army Gen. John Nicholson said that thousands more troops are needed in Afghanistan to break a “stalemate.” While the hearings focused on expanding the military budget under a new President committed to a defense buildup, it’s critical that we recognize that the national security of the United States depends on a fit and healthy military force."
