Wow - Defense Budget Must be Getting Really Bad

From Thomas E. Ricks:

People who joined the military since 9/11, when the money spigot was opened full, have no sense of the budget environment they are heading into. Kind of reminds me of the time during the Depression when the military took a month-long pay holiday. Back then George Marshall, overseeing a garrison, encouraged his subordinates to make sure that married soldiers planted vegetable gardens, to ensure that their families would eat.
