Since WWI, II, times, we had 3,000,000+ troops. We have ~1.5 million. Either because of funding or technology is so advanced you only need half the men/women as before. But, technology costs more. I'm going to guess we have a lot of UAV's and drones, where casualties are less, @ the same time, when they shoot the drone down, there goes, idk? Million or 2? Yeah they should have the money, we need to make sure we can do more than just, PROTEST! I'm hearing & seeing red flags going up all over the news. Kick some Red, White and Blue!
