I hope for Vance as well.
Just my two cents, but the role of the military is to kill people and break their stuff. I would contend that the highest leadership of the military should always be operators who have existed professionally within that context. I have nothing but respect for all of the support trades; dad and one of his wives were/are both successful LogOs. But the CAF as a whole is a fighting formation, and should be led by those who have come up commanding progressively large levels of same.
