The large standing Army and active duty military we have known in our lifetime may seem the norm - but it isn't.

Is there a way to maintain a strong military capability - available and scaleable if needed - without the structure we have become accustomed to?

Is there a better way to balance our Reserve and National Guard forces that is better in line with our economic, national security, and yes - Constitutional requirements?

Join us with our guest, General Ron Fogleman, USAF (Ret) for the full hour. Using his article in Defense NewsGoing Back to the Future: Militia Model Could Cut U.S. Expenditures as a starting point, we will discuss these ideas and more as we look for a way to maintain strength and options as the budget crunch starts.
