General Welsh is speaking out. The Air Force is in critical need of more manpower. The cut backs are going to cost us dearly if we do not elect Donald Trump. No other candidate is going to fix this problem.
As his tenure as Air Force chief of staff winds down, Gen. Mark Welsh is becoming increasingly blunt about where he thinks manpower levels should be — and that’s at full manning, 40,000 to 60,000 more airmen.
While this post is about an Air Force issue I’m sure it is service wide. Without a modern, well manned and maintained military we cannot meet future demands.
If our civilian friends think they have problems here at home just wait until American deterrence capability suffers more. There is a serious link between military might and economic strength that is often overlooked. Think about how the stock market drops when there is a military crisis in the world. If your retirement or investments are in the market then you can see how this affects you and most Americans.
