    The cuts shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Last time we reduced the force we eventually ended up back in Iraq and Afghanistan. I expected them but maybe not at the expense of combat capable troops. Logistics and Intel sure.

    Kind of an extreme action by the Army. I understand where they are coming from but now anyone regardless of grandfathering is pretty much screwed out of a long term career based on how I interpreted the article. That's the Army for you.
