Outside The Wire

The best and brightest from this week’s Army Times

Big news this week: In an effort to save money on processing permanent change-of-station orders, the Army is lengthening tours from 30 months to four years. Read all about the benefits of longer assignments in this week’s cover story.

Also on the cover, a new report says that the Defense Department would do well to not only cut back on personnel, but also cap pay raises, begin taxing some allowances and cut health care and retirement benefits.

In more comforting news, a former Marine has developed a ballistic jock strap and that ‘eats’ bullets. Check out the Nutshellz Level 2 Armored Cup in our pages this week.
