Recruiting Skilled Soldiers, Challenge, Let Alone Scientists, Engineers

US military’s environment is so poor that it has difficulties to recruit scientists and engineers as proved by its design of useless Zumwalt destroyer, LCS and troublesome F-35. That is not the only problem now. Business Insider says in its report “The military’s ‘war for talent’ is affecting what the Navy’s future ships will look like” 9 hours ago that US military finds that recruitment of skilled soldiers one of its main challenges now.

That is really bizarre. With such a high budget, it cannot afford competitive pays for skilled mercenaries.
