Info: Our guest is author and retired Army officer Andrew Bacevich. He discusses his newly released book titled, “Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country.” Bacevich talks about the current issues facing the United States armed forces, tracing them back to the war in Vietnam. He describes his own tour of duty in Vietnam as an Army first lieutenant. He details the struggles the American military faced in that conflict, including low morale, drug addiction and more. Bacevich suggests that the all-volunteer army is bad for troops and bad for the country. He says that there is a disconnect between the American public and the troops serving in harm’s way. He explains why he describes himself as a “Catholic conservative” and how his views differ from mainstream conservatism in issues of the environment and American involvement in global conflicts. He calls the United States military the “best” military in the world, but says that America does not know “how to win wars.”In addition, he discusses problems stemming from an increased reliance by the military on private contractors.
