Fox News ran an exclusive report on Special Report tonight on how the US Marines are at their breaking point. Their planes are breaking down and in the air training has been cut by 50% due to budget cuts in the last few years. They are literally cannibalizing parts from planes that are supposed to be in the air to keep the other planes in the air.
And the Marines themselves are being asked to do more and more, even working 21 hours a day just to keep their aircraft operational. It’s gotten so bad that some are leaving for jobs in the private sector.
