The overuse of our military personnel has been ongoing for quite awhile. It is not just a current administration thing. Clinton did it for 8 years, Bush before him. Both parties must accept an equal part of the blame. Trying to place the blame on only one party /administration is ignoring the true situation. I don't care how many former Generals, Admirals, CJCS come out on either side. They are all just playing party politics and not portraying an accurate picture. They will say anything to get their candidate elected or to gain influence themselves.
