There is another liberal progressive unintended consequence lurking behind the current assault by O's administration on the military. The pool from which volunteers are drawn is not all the men and now women between the ages of 18 to 35. A very high percentage in this age range are not eligible for military service, volunteer or otherwise. They are not physically fit enough to get into shape to meet the physical requirements to serve. They also have criminal records. And the last deficiency is they are functionally illiterate. They dropped out of school. They cannot read and comprehend.
The upshot of all of this is we will be taking more of the age group that are employable, and leaving a higher percentage of the unemployable.
