The arc of reform

“From 1775 on, there’s been people that have stepped up and said, ‘This doesn’t make sense. We need to change it.’ And from 1775 on, those calls for reform have been met with the same refrain from the military, which is, if commanders don’t have this authority, people won’t listen to them, soldiers won’t listen to them, and we need this for good order and discipline,” he said. “I don’t know what year this is going to get done — hopefully it’s this year — but the one thing I’m 100 percent confident in is we are going to win and the opposition is going to lose. This will happen.”

Col. Don Christensen, USAF (Ret), quoted here in The Hill
