    The mission must be completed regardless of what is going on in your family life. It is a bit of a socialist society.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending so much time trying to upgrade technology that by the time you uprade the systems, it is already outdated. In particular, the Logistics Standard Base Supply System is an ancient system. The Air Force Logistics gurus keep buying and implimenting systems that are junk and don't work well. They never consult the people in the trenches who have to use the systems they purchase. The systems they deploye end up taking more time to figure out and use when they are supposed to be saving time. Manning positions were cut to pay for these systems that were supposed to save man hours. Not the case - just ask the people working in the Logistics Readiness Squadrons using the garbage.
