About 21,000 troops booted so far under ‘deploy or get out’ policy
By: Leo Shane III

“A key element of strengthening our military and increasing lethality is ensuring our warfighters achieve established physical, mental and security vetting standards,” he told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee during a hearing on the fiscal 2020 budget request.
