Like it or not, our modern, all-volunteer military cannot fight — or even prepare to do so — without civilian contractors. Propagandists for the left know it is no longer politically correct to attack young Americans in uniform — so they aim their attacks at military, logistics, security and intelligence support contractors. Disparaging and defunding civilian contractors is just one more way of disarming America — but at the end of the day, we won’t win without them.
