My recollection of Fort Hood in 1969 was miles of tank parks, ugly heat and humidity and a two dimensional rattlesnake after it had been run over by a M109. I also chased and tackled an armadillo, but it got away.

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

But he's not quite at the top, unlike other Signal officers who became CDS (Ramsey Withers) and Chief of the General Staff, before unification, (SF Clark).

Any body else get the impression that that's a lot of people jumping ship, I mean retiring all at once??  Seems like a big shuffle and a clean house to me.  Not that the incoming members don't deserve the posts, I'm sure they do, otherwise they wouldn't get it, but that's a big shuffle at the top of the house.

Some newspapers, like the Ottawa citizen are spinnig the story as a "sign of major changes to come," suggesting that the government is preparing DND for a "major shift in focus from the days of the Afghanistan war and increasing budgets, to a state of deep budget cuts and limited deployments." My guess is that several very senior officers saw that the time ripe for a career change ~ e.g. not going to be CDS ~ or, perhaps, just decided that they've served long enough. There is a "knock down" effect when one person leaves, others have to move to fill in the vacancy and then fill in for the fill-ins.

I am not sure the number of retirements is out of whack from other years. The list is presented differently, but that could be the managing change thingy in action.
