Hit the nail in the head. An infantry company today needs a platoon of clerks and data entry specialist to provide all of the useless shit to higher. The Army should have learned a lesson from the Kosovo train up, training for peacekeeping task makes it harder to get ready if a war stumbles in. Love to see the data on WHY NCOs can’t get it done. My theory is too much focus on Human Resources stuff and not enough on killing!
