: The U.S. Army is very much going into wartime mode to keep the Afghanistan and Iraqi operations supplied with troops. In order to find 500 more staff officers (for units going overseas), many peacetime education programs are being put on hold. The army has dozens of education programs for officers, which allow officers to get masters and doctorate degrees, at government expense. Hundreds of these officer-students have been ordered back to military duties. In the armys own schools, the training has been speeded up, to make more officers available for overseas deployment.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
