We are closing bases and taking vet benefits while at war.

We pay these guys for this?

Some are just not needed anymore. Some were used for cold war purposes. I support some of the closings but a couple make me scratch my head. Like the AFB in South Dakota. That seemed like a strategic post.

The demands are changing. Unlike the 80s when we needed lots of stateside bases for nuclear bombers and cruise missiles, now we need a rapidly deployable force to take the battle to their backyard.

Interesting, I hope the nuclear talks with North Korea are successful. I would hate to see another war happen.
