    I remember the "one size fits all" approach during JFK's administration. We got the F111 which nobody liked.

    We certainly have redundancies within our military, but diversity also has its benefits, such as we test different weapons in combat and see which one blows the top off the enemy tanks.

    Right now our smart weapons cost way too much, but if we can unravel the cost and production issues, they will save lives no matter the color of the uniform.

    And Additional Counterpoint...

    That said, Denny’s arguments don’t make the case. He overestimates the capabilities of the other services to take on the Marine Corps’ missions, underestimates the massive structural challenges inherent in his proposal, does not account for the ever-adapting nature of the Marine Corps as a service, and does not appreciate the unique synergy of the service as a fighting force.​
