Officers with "stars" never "retire", whether Generals or Admirals. They are only eligible for transfer to the "reserve" element of their particular service, always subject to recall in time of need, as their "country" sees fit. Whenever a General or Admiral "retires" you can bet they're no longer physically or mentally competent to fulfill their duties. That being said, your secondary remark is correct. The top brass make "policies" that the NCO's have to figure out how to implement, and this boondoggle is no exception. It's a really bad idea, because "men" have a natural instinct to protect "women" who are the givers of life in the world of mammals. No man can bring forth a new human being. That's an area where only women can produce...
