    considering that in the sandbox wars the tail to spearhead ratio has been leaning towards the pointy end, 400,000 men army maybe sufficient.

    Another great saving eliminate the contractors. If those retired cols and generals are so sharp then let them stay on, but take them out of the promotion chain. why is it a profit center at a office complex in Alexandria VA, but not at Andrews AFB? I know Andrews has a new designation, but teaching old dogs...

    I remember hearing in Germany that qualified people who aged out of the promotion window were retained at the job they did well, without further promotions. But German military is part of civil service.
