Navy officials: Cuts could degrade fleet, forces, safety | quotes James Holmes
“Part of the reason I got out was, it didn’t look like there was a whole lot of a future for me,” Holmes said.  Two things might keep service members from leaving in the short term, he said. Sailors are better paid compared with a decade ago, and there aren’t many opportunities in the private sector.  “There is a tipping point, though, when sailors will begin to leave,” Holmes said.
