I've discovered that the art of writing government papers is not so much in saying something new or compelling, but being able to plagarize from multiple sources and rearranging them into saying something that is more or less adequate.
"In the olden days (Pershing era) the system used to be very inflexible. Now it's very generous. To be considered at the Colonel promotion board, your only qualification is to be able to convert oxygen to carbon dioxide."
Man, future war systems are so cool. Very soon every soldier will have a uniform that can detect and apply pressure to wounds and automatically detect and counteract nerve agents/toxins; helmet mounted displays with satellite/drone imagery that will coordinate strikes and display mission objectives; personnel carriers with electromagnetic armor; metal exoskeletons to increase strength and endurance; robot surveillance designed to mimic hummingbirds... and a bunch of other weird sci-fi shit. The American Soldier is literally becoming a Space Marine.
