    I retired from the USAF in 1986. I couldn't do 20 years in todays armed forces.

    I was surprised to make E8 because I didn't complete the Senior NCO Academy course via correspondence because of the constant travel and laziness on my part.

    The short answer is the Administration & Congress. The linked article shows what happens when the necessary funds aren't provided to recruit, train, and retain maintenance personnel and buy the necessary spare parts. It isn't going to get any better anytime soon.

    Those bombers cost hundreds of million each. That's like buying a Ferrari and never changing the oil.
