My two cents on this is as follows boosting numbers and assets are great but the man-power factor as well as the financial means to achieve it has to be there. Big Blue knows this so i am sure we will see a surge of new Airman being brought into the force. For now it seems the years of sequestering resources that the U.S. D.O.D underwent is over now its time to prepare for tommorws fight against a uniformed and well tranined force on what ever domain the adversary chooses to do battle. One thing is for sure where ever that fight is big Blue will be ready at all costs.
