Blasted Brothers

I saw a bit on these guys on CNN yesterday. The work they do is first rate and for the nation somewhat embarassing. With the expanded use of the the National Guard in oversees action, providing a seemless return for the deployed guardsmen is the responsibility of the US Army. That it took three wounded veterans in a bar to realize that this was a good idea simply shows that the DOD from Rumsfeld on down need to be taken out behind a woodshed for a good beating.

For soldiers to take the initiative in arranging for everything from housing to jobs to health care is great, except that the officers and in particular the generals should have already done this, and that they had not speaks to their incompetence.
