BTW, I blame the Joint Chiefs of Staff for allowing Panetta/Obama to make this change. The Joint Chiefs could have objected, and that is their job to object when it affects military readiness, They didn't object. They supported the changes. They are more interested in their own careers than they are in the safety of the troops and in the safety of our nations.
THE JOINT CHIEFS ARE A BUNCH OF SELF-SERVING COWARDS!!!
