'Deploy or get out' policy may not have forced out any troops at all
from Military Times
Defense officials say no service members have been forced out of the ranks under the Pentagon's new "deploy or get out" policy put in place last fall, despite comments from the acting defense secretary suggesting tens of thousands of service members were removed from the force in recent months. In recent testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, acting secretary Patrick Shanahan said that his department has "roughly 21,000 fewer nondeployable service members" since last summer thanks to the policy, which officially went into effect on Oct. 1, 2018. The confusion highlights the ambiguity of the policy.
