The Air Power Dam Has Burst
Good for the many aviators wanting to get out, but a bad day for air power projection. News of Voluntary Separation Pay (VSP) approvals is sweeping across squadrons as a great many pilots are being paid to leave the Air Force early. I'm happy for these guys, but this is going to take a very real toll on our service as hundreds of millions of dollars in training floods out of our Air Force.
I feel bad for the commanders who will have to try to pick up the pieces. Interesting times we live in.
