re: USMC Commandant doesn’t believe in protecting the country - Foch on 3/27/19 at 2:41 pm
I dont think you understand the Commandant's role. His job is to be a force provider to COCOMS and as a part of that he must take into account readiness of materiel and forces. Is the Marine Corps, an inherently expeditionary force that is in a cycle of constant deployment, the best postures or suit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: The wife and I made a difficult decision this weekend - Foch on 8/14/18 at 12:22 am
OP- most of the talk surrounding the “military” option has been shaped from an enlisted first, gi bill later angle. Look into ROTC funding options. They provide significant debt relief, a social group for your kid to hang out with in college, a well paying job upon graduation, and great experience/o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I don’t disagree with parts of your argument, but would like to know where you would assign the burden of defense spending which in many places guarantees the freedom of movement required to facilitate trade (we could argue where)?
