But instead of giving them the old Rick Perry red meat and whipping the crowd into a frenzied, spontaneous singing of “Into the wild blue yonder,” Donley delivered a dose of Jimmy Carter malaise. The Air Force is at war, but there also is a war on debts and deficits in Washington, he warned a cavernous ballroom of generals gathered the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference. “Efficiency” programs won’t...

    All the services are in the same boat. We're just waiting for the axe to fall, so we can see if we still have any fingers left. Hoping for at least one and the thumb, at this point.

    We've already been cut by more then 10% over the last 6 years... My unit is critically manned right now. We just lost 2 more people, and we have no inbounds until 2013. This shit is getting ridiculous.
