Thanks for your service, generals. Now get in the bin.
So, we've now established beyond any doubt that:
The Army can neither appropriately select and train officers, nor appropriately discipline enlisted troops. (Brighter lights and prior-service readers will readily grasp how A leads to B.)
The Navy doesn't know how to sail ships in the manner that posed little problem for any one of the 240 years prior to the existence of Diversity and Gender Management Officers.
The Air Farce (always an honorable alternative to military service) can neither field a functional attack aircraft, nor process paperwork (its two root raisons d'etre since forever) sufficient to either support combat troops, nor imprison skull-breaking child abusers and prevent them from purchasing firearms and going on massacres, with a side order of an entire functional command responsible for supervising nuclear weapons from generals to second lieutenants that is rife with cheating, lying, fraud, corruption, and fundamental incompetence.
Well done, Team Fucktard.
This leaves but the Marines, and the doughty Coast Guard as the only remaining bastions of bare competence in maintaining and executing the defense of the republic, such as it is.
(Which, truth be told, is what every generation of them have thought was the situation pretty much every day since at least 1945, if not 1918.) And even those two services each have their own horror stories.
It's time for SecDef Mattis to start retiring general officers from at least three services, and in batches. Assemble a Star Chamber court of review, composed of retired, decorated combat commanders (NOT managers), and congressmen with military service, and start shitcanning generals and admirals. Start with the four-stars. Anyone found lacking, goes. Then the three- and two- and one-star ranks, in the same manner. Simultaneously, flag those at the three-star and lower levels down to colonel/navy captain capable of handling a bump to the next grade up, with an emphasis on war-fighting and mission accomplishment.
Anybody salvageable, but with heavy experience promoting the SJW bullshit rot of the last 8-20 years gets demoted one level. Anyone non-salvageable gets shit-canned, same day.

They could start tomorrow, and be done by Jan. 1st at the earliest, or the 31st at the latest.
At the end of which time, we should have approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the number of generals and admirals we're carrying currently. That is a "peace dividend".
Then let them know that all retained generals will be scrutinized annually by DoD, with an emphasis on accomplishing war-fighting missions, and that from here on out, "zero defects" will only be applied to field grade and general rank officers, in a career-ending manner, and not to enlisted troops, NCOs, or company-level officers.
You wear the braid, the buck stops there. Time to take one for the team.
And well over half the gutless ghormless m*****f*****s with stars aren't cutting the mustard.
Sadly, Sgt. Major Plumley, David Hackworth and Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf are no longer with us, but I'd put Dale Dye and Lee Ermey on that board in a heartbeat, and any input, in general or specific, from any living MOH or services' (Distinguished/Navy/Air Force) Cross recipients would be distributed to the entire board for their consideration.
Then we fire the entire staff at all three service academies, turn them over to the recruit training commands, and require, at a minimum, personal awards for combat bravery henceforth for every position there, from commandant to janitor. If the military wants engineering degrees, I hear Texas A&M and Georgia Tech do a fine job of that. Hand out ROTC vouchers. The military academies should be training heartbreakers and life-takers, leaders of men, of the type that make women swoon and men walk through hell, barefoot, over broken glass. While laughing.
Plebes would move at all times with bayonets and fighting knives in their clenched teeth, and upperclassmen with swords and cutlasses at carry arms, with drill dummies placed in the mess halls for practice thrice daily before meals, 24/7/365.
Accidents would just be Darwinism in action.
Summer training periods would be spent as assimilated junior and senior enlisted ranks, and any cadets not getting marks better than those normally holding the billets would be separated immediately for any failure to perform.
The only use for Muslim infiltrators and communists there henceforth should be as demonstrators for the lectures on proper waterboarding techniques, and the SJW Diversity douchebags should be the OPFOR for riot control tear gas deployment demonstrations.
And formal mess nights would feature drinking implements made from the skulls of defeated enemies. Actual or ersatz, but the point would be made.
I want a military that frightens other countries, and worries our own civilian authorities when they're turned loose on leave. And federal law that would make justified self defense any harm short of killing anyone who spit on a uniformed military person, and a companion UCMJ article requiring blows on any such occasion.
The military should be a barely restrained Rottweiler, not a purse dog.
Generals and admirals who forget that should be reintroduced to the joys of punching a time clock 9 to 5, and being treated like the beta males they are, and that right speedily.
