Why our best officers are leaving the military
Why are so many of the most talented officers now abandoning military life for the private sector? An exclusive survey of West Point graduates shows that it’s not just money. Increasingly, the military is creating a command structure that rewards conformism and ignores merit. As a result, it’s losing its vaunted ability to cultivate entrepreneurs in uniform.
Even with the war in Afghanistan, the services are still probably suffering from peacetime army syndrome. I wonder how long this has been going on.
