With 190,000 files to review this means they will only have to review an average of 2,111 files a day. If they put 100 FTE's on this each file will have to be reviewed in approximately 20 minutes.
Does anyone really think they are going to put anywhere near 100 bodies on this?
Does anyone really think this review is going to be complete?
Sure looks like lipstick on a pig, whatever color or shade is applied, it still is a pig underneath!

If the military looked back over last 50 years they would probably find 100,000 cases where mentally ill servicemen and women were discharged as PD's, pre-existing conditions, bad conduct etc. Why just look from 2001. Many RVN vets with roaring cases of PTSD were booted out as PD's. After Vietnam the military downsized and what better way to do it than boot sick soldiers out as PD's. You get an Article 15 for missing formation and you become sociopath and get the boot.
when I was in they were hell bent on keeping some really bad people,, the people who drank and fought wer enot kicked out until they were sent through re-habs, and theymight have lost a stripe, but the usaf kept them at al costs,, these people made the good gi's miserable because of their drinking and fighting making the lives of others miserable.. after they had a year of counseling and all avenues of help were exhausted then, they got the boot,, but after they had scerewed with everyone else in their path... but that was from the 1970's and 1980's. The command did everything they could to keep everyone... but some people were just out of control... you can't have out of control people ruining the lives of others just to meet some quota..
