So the VEERP is in full swing and to be honest the command has been handling this well, better than I thought. Packages are being approved quickly (most of the time). The intent is that even after the BN closes that out barracks will still be a home to guys waiting on schools, instead of shoving them into a random unit then making them pack up again to leave. It’s going pretty well all things considered.

I don't know, maybe an "expeditionary fast transport" isn't what the Corps considers a "light amphibious assault ship." They're shitcanning tanks, paring down rifle battalions and aviation units.

So we're transitioning from counter-insurgencies to near-peer conflict with the PRC and I'm betting we'll never fight China directly just like we never fought the USSR directly through 40 years of Cold War. Probably end up back in some asymmetric proxy war fighting guys with AKs and RPGs.
