I won’t comment on all the ideas, I have not had time to digest them. Off the top of my head I think Up or Out for NCOs is stupid, just like I think it is stupid for well performing officers. The idea that really sticks in my craw, is his notion of bringing back „Pinks and Greens“ for the Army. Read it for yourself.
Three comments; 1. You can’t be serious that you want to change our uniform again, 2. How much will this cost the Army? 3. You do realize that „Pinks and Greens“ was an officers uniform. Enlisted wore OD Green Jacket and Trousers. Officers had a cloth belt all the time and a Sam Browne belt for dress occasions, enlisted had no belt normally and NCO belt for dress occasions.
