Abstract:

The true value of PME is difficult to properly evaluate because it contains many unquantifiable or hard-to-quantify elements. Some influential voices have argued that the service academies and colleges should be shut down because they are too expensive and do not compare with their civilian counterparts. In these critics view, this would help trim the federal budget and also improve the military. These ideas are not only wrong they defy common sense. Enormous damage will be done to our military and national security if such ideas are accepted.
