US Military Academy Wastes

1. Eliminate the summer trips cadets take on the government dime to various bases around the world. The government is paying to fly these kids all over the world, house them, feed them, and for what? They don't do any work at these locations, but instead get bussed all around base (more money wasted), get tours of various facilities (man hours wasted), then go back to their billeting rooms (government paid) and party. There is NO gain to the service in doing this. Instead, to save taxpayers money, why don't cadets attending service academies go to school year round (including summers) and graduate in three years instead of four. There are NUMEROUS programs offered to cadets that could, and should be cut that would save millions of dollars
