This is an extremely important bill. At our current military strength in combat zones, we have 1 General for every 400 troops. This is unacceptable! There are General's and Admirals who are doing jobs that 20-30 years ago were being done by Colonels and below ranks. Our military has become top heavy with Generals and Admirals and not enough E-3s to get the job done on the ground. According to the report published last year by taskandpurpose.com there were 411 1 stars, 299 two stars, 139 three stars and 37 four star active generalsand admirals with several more appointed! When our joint force has declined by 38% in the past 30 years but the size of the four star officers has increased by 65%. We need to shift these flag positions from staff functions to operational functions as well as bring down the size of the flag officer corps to WWII levels (when the size of our military was much larger, BTW!) The excess staff need to be demoted or retired ASAP.
