"There have been a lot or arguments lately about whether the military is big enough or not, and whether the fighting force here in Iraq should be increased or decreased. I think many of the articles are missing the point though, especially the ones calling for a larger military (leave aside the point that, with decreasing enlistment numbers, dramatically increasing the size of the military would be cost prohibitive). There is no doubt that we need more “fighters,” the security forces and the guys out seeking out the enemy- the Special Forces, Field Artillery guys, Stryker teams and others. But, in my opinion, there is also no doubt that we don’t need more support soldiers. Soldiers like me."
