Andrew Bacevich talked about his book, Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country. Mr. Bacevich spoke about current issues facing the United States armed forces, tracing them back to the war in Vietnam. He talked about his own tour of duty in Vietnam, and the struggles the American military faced in that conflict, including low morale and drug addiction. Mr. Bacevich also argued that an all volunteer army is bad for troops and bad for the country, and that there is a disconnect between the American public and the troops serving in harm’s way. In addition, he also spoke about problems stemming from an increased reliance by the military on private contractors. close
