The most obvious has to do with the fact that a substantial portion of the budget is being swallowed up on the one hand by entitlements such as Social Security and Medicare that are virtually untouchable, and on the other by the servicing of a swelling national debt. Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding inline citations. With the establishment of Annex Ws Operational Contract Support in contingency planning and the standing up of the Joint Contingency Acquisition Support Office, tangible steps have been taken, but full implementation will take time and experience. The services also had to develop a professional, highly trained, and motivated recruiting staff.

    The Pentagon budget alone is larger than that of the next 14 nations in the world combined. But the results on the surface appear to have been extraordinary. All-volunteer force book U. Editors Bicksler, Gilroy, and Warner have presented the proceedings of a high-level conference commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the AVF. There was great reluctance to expand the force.
