Military Readiness – As a nation we must already be ready to keep our borders safe and the wolf at bay. We must always be prepared and ready, whatever the cost, minus the waste. If we are not ready, not only will we suffer, but so will our allies. Think of military readiness as an insurance policy. It is there when you need it for the big problems that arise. It will cost more to fix the problem than to be ready for it ahead of time.
