...military authorizations...civilian authorizations...

What's an increase of '432 military authorizations' and a '4 civilian authorizations'? :rolleyes:

I know they're referring to the authorization of additional positions to the TO&E - so why don't they just say that. :confused:

GAWD - how I miss the bureaucratic gobbledygook! ;)
