Lots of talk but I see no reasons for these people being canned from the military. The fact that 157 majors in the Air Force were booted during a draw down AND after having been passed over twice is no surprise to me. If an 04 is passed over twice, he's pretty much done, I would say. As for the nuke guy, sounds like a drinking problem to me. Can't really comment on the first list without seeing the REASONS these people were "purged."
