What Does a Guy Have to Do to Get Kicked Out of the Navy These Days?

I think that there's a need to begin reducing the size of the military, and this is one way that they are going to go about it.

After 1991, and the so-called "peace dividend" that allowed the Department of Defense to reduce the size of the military, there was a "zero defect" mentality that took over. With fewer and fewer slots available, anyone with any kind of defect was gotten rid of.

Wars create defects in people, however. Is it really a good thing to get rid of a lot of people who, despite their so-called "defects" have a great deal of practical experience actually fighting wars? Do we really want to go back to those "zero defect" days?
