MountainRunner, writing under his meatspace name in SWJ, explains what SECDEF was trying to do last Monday, and what my .mil buddy was seeking our input on a week ago. Hmmmm. You don’t think that Regular sought out the opinions of Irregular Auxiliaries to gain insight into how it might play in Peoria, do you? Anyway, I want to thank my commenters on that thread. I don’t know and I may never know if we made any difference, but I suspect that we did, and that suspicion is enough for now.
Go on over to SWJ and read. Much as I sincerely appreciate your comments here, many more eyes will see what you have to say over there.
