We really like the grunts around here. Apparently SECDEF Mattis does as well. The eternal problems of resource allocation for and combat effectiveness of these combat soldiers are pretty well addressed here.
What if after decades of neglect, these problems truly WERE addressed? The War God himself, seems primed to address that with the Close Combat Lethality Task Force. We aren't holding our breath, as the wheels turn slowly at Department of Defense, but this is certainly a start.
