Ultimately, TB was dead set on sticking to the budget allocated back in 2008, and didn't give a hot damn about the fact that we're bleeding personnel. They told the CAF to come up with something that fits those constraints, and CMP did.I honestly thought we were going to get skewered much harder than we did, but there's no denying that the 'economic increase' and CFHD are policies made by a combination of bureaucrats and politicians who are apathetic, or perhaps mildly hostile to us and our institution but wanted general and flag officers to quit making pleas. The ironic piece is that this affects the core people in the Navy, and 1 CMBG strongly - elements that we need more than anyone else to be happy and want to stay in the military. And so it continues to unravel...
It sucked and is stupid, but given the constraints I think it probably sucked about as little as you could reasonably expect.
When your employer doesn't really care about the fact that people are leaving in droves, what do we expect to happen?
