Dempsey has had a large gulp of the "refreshing" political Kool Aid. Guess he figures he got his 4 stars; he's good. He only aims to keep them all the way into a cushy, comfy retirement with a big, fat monthly check care of you & me.
And to hell with all the infantry first sergeants, platoon sergeants, squad & team leaders who will have to actually implement this ridiculous scheme. As usual, it will fall on the NCO corps to make sense of the idiocy coming out of Washington--and there is NO sense to be made from this foolishness.
