Despite all the talk of a "broken Army", it sure seems like the troops aren't buying it, and at least one of the generals saying so has changed his mind.
After all, reenlistments are up and despite all the anecdotes about captains and majors fleeing the Army, retention in the O3/O4 grades is pretty much the same as it was in the 1990's, which has led MG Scales to retract his earlier statements about the Army being broken. This isn't to say that they couldn't use some of those divisions demobilized during the false peace of the Clinton years, to say nothing of a fourth Marine division, but things aren't nearly as bad as the press and the Democrats (redundant, I know) want you to believe.
