Gonna be a lot of guys getting out. Period.
It has to do with stupid on the part of congress and the administration.
Only the hard core career types may hang on. Especially when within four years of retirement. Or if in the position, they will be dropping paperwork to call it a career. My advice. Sort of like the Graham-Rudman-Hollings drawdown that got me. Then the Forces had a discipline problem. When you force the "professional assholes" out, bad things start to happen.
So SGTMAJ Hill may be having to eat those words, and I would like to that. It would give The Old Retired Petty Officer a chuckle.
