    Excellent interview James and some great insight. After I graduated from college in 1968 I was drafted and I’m sure you know what was going on in 1968. Although I was not particularly happy about getting caught in the draft myself I must admit I never objected to the draft itself. I must admit I was lucky and was picked up by the Defense Intelligence Agency and even though I had to sign up for additional year it was worth it. I spent 3 years of the Vietnam war on the frontiers of freedom in downtown Munich Germany. In many respects the best 3 years of my life. After all these years many of my best friends are people I served with.

    The comment that raising base pay during a war means a larger downsizing after a war.

    There is also the issue for the services of what is inherently military versus jobs that can be done by civilians or contractors. One of the results of a drawn out low intensity war is that many military occupations have been eliminated/contracted out.
