The Washington Times reports that “U.S. military readiness has deteriorated over the past year, according to a study Wednesday by a conservative think-tank that said the four service branches are unable to ‘meet their day-to-day requirements’ and lack the ‘operational depth required to respond to a major crisis.’”  

The study  by the American Enterprise Institute in Washington homed in on comments made during a series of March congressional hearings by top military commanders, who ‘painted a somber picture of military readiness.’”
