"The Peacemaker" I think this slogan, painted on the wall of the enlisted chow hall of the USS IOWA, says it all.

As we have in past history, we are allowing our military to erode below the strengths that should be maintained to protect ourselves.
If we had compulsory military training and service for all citizens, both male and female, this would not be a problem. (that's another topic, though.

We have to ,"get to, be at, maintain," a true "ready reserve." Ready for whatever it might take to enhance, maintain and defend the USA and her citizens.

"as many as 20% of the soldiers are troops who exist on paper only, according to Guard members and government investigators."
If 260,000 of our troups are ghost soldiers, we are in deep shit.

I would like to see more reservists and national guard. A strong citizen soldier integrated into the fabric of a nation makes for a stronger nation. I would like to see a mandatory draft for all who are between 18 - 25.
