    The basis for over- and under-utilized troops
    http://cricketchurping.blogspot.com/2004/12/basis-for-over-and-under-utilized.html

    Small excerpt:
    Come on active duty, retirees, and work as long as you like! We’ll take you even if you’re disabled now!

    It’s too bad Military = Competition. It sure would be advantageous if Military = Cooperation, b/c this is a classic case of, “I’ve got mine. Where’s yours?”

    The current soldiers and their families are suffering. They’ve had enough. It would be beneficial to both active duty soldiers and retirees to have Reservists back fill positions related to war.

    Heck! Dare I say it? It would benefit our country!

    There should be a Congressional adjustment addressing this. At a minimum, Reservists should be allowed to get to 20 years for the retirement they’ve earned if they participate in times of war.

    Why isn’t the media picking up on that? Why is this pool of professionals ignored?
