ARMY’s Inside Foe is Killing It – Army to Cut Up to 4,000 Captains and Majors

Army to Cut Up to 4,000 Captains and Majors
18 December 2013

The U.S. Army is sending roughly 19,000 active-duty captains and majors to a screening board for early separation this spring, the Army Times reported. Up to 20 percent of those screened — approximately 3,800 officers — could be scheduled to leave the service by the Officer Separation Board and Enhanced Selective Early Retirement Board.

Officers with fewer than 18 years of federal active service will have their screening process done by OSB, and those with more than 18 years of service will see the E-SERB, according to the Army Times.

    I don’t know about Army, but the Navy NEEDS to do this– we have way too many officers.

    This has been happening with the Enlisted since… well, probably the Clinton years. Was definitely happening when I got out in ’07.

    But we only have two Army Brigades that are battle ready. We’re screwed if a two front war breaks out. The kid that mows our lawn got back from Basic training in October. He was telling me it was done on the cheap side. I asked about the gas chamber. He said it was wimpy. Instead of the 20 pellet CS gas like I got, the budget allowed for only 6 pellets. Slightly stronger than VICK’s Vapo-Rub.

    Before I retired from the Corps of Engineers (Navy has NAVFAC) I could see the downsizing was about to happen.
