General Says Army Will Need To Grow

WaPo reported Warning that the active-duty Army "will break" under the strain of today's war-zone rotations, the nation's top Army general yesterday called for expanding the force by 7,000 or more soldiers a year and lifting Pentagon restrictions on involuntary call-ups of Army National Guard and Army Reserve troops.

I support that, but let it grow intelligently. Add more Special Forces, and more people with the skill sets that the Army National Guard and Army Reserve troops called up had, which caused them to be needed, rather than taking Army units from Europe or Japan.
