That may be a little shady ethically, but I'm sure the lengthy military service contract has provisions for that. As long as they are serving in similiar jobs
that they enlisted for in the Air Force after they transfer over to the Army I don't have any real problem with that.
But now if they are getting shifted from one branch where, say they are Rear Eschelon guys in the Air Force and suddenly they are infantry in the Army, I have a serious problem with that. That's deception of 18-20 year old young adults who are most likely signing their first legal contract when they join, getting trapped by folks who know better.
We have an all volunteer force for a reason.
Do you have any links to recent stories about that UA? I'm extremely interested in hearing more about it.
