  • Force reduction efforts in the services. A lot of guys get out, and because we've been doing COIN for so long, think that being a soldier and being a cop are essentially the same things,

  • Money. Many police departments see a cost savings in training former military; also there are federal incentives to hiring veterans. It sounds like an immediate "win-win",
