Most people aren't going to stay in the military until retirement. I'd even be willing to bet that most of them leave after their first contract. I don't understand why we can't downsize recruitment big time and let people naturally finish their contracts,

You know full well. You need a solid cadre to keep the new pups in line and show them the ropes, and I am not talking about the ones who have never left base in their hitch.
