If you could make just one change that would make your service life better, what would it be? This can apply to us ex's as well from our days "in"..but let's have the reason on the change as well, not just a straight winge session. My service covered most of the 70's and 80's. the thing i would have changed was the series of redundancies. As this to me was the start of the Army not having good leaders especially in the Non-commissioned ranks. As the 15-20 year cpl's all took the money and left a couple of years later all the Snco's time was up and it started the accelerated promotion, too many people (not all bad) who were promoted too quickly to ranks that they couldn't handle..
