The article posted on the right put a nice spin to a subject that American leadership was eager to hide from the world - the matter involving a total lack of military preparedness. The journalist reported on the military's push to bulk-up the reserves to an acceptable level, but the real story was that all branches of the armed services were on a recruiting drive for more men (and women) to make up for the post-war deployment program that had drastically reduced the combat effectiveness of practically every unit. Under heavy pressure from civil authorities to save money, the post-war military planners failed to retain the services of numerous combat veterans to train the newest recruits. This partially explains the lack of accomplishments attained by the earliest divisions deployed to halt the North Korean advances in 1950.
