Most of the more significant areas of progress are still behind the scenes.  It is a fact that many Senators and Representatives are now aware of the issue.  (And more than just in passing.)  The Secretary of the Army has passed the buck with his letter to Senator Grassley.  The Army is openly playing hot potato.  CBS and other media outlets are taking keen interest.

Much has already been written.  The list of links below is far from exhaustive, but provides a basis of knowledge.

(Note: inclusion of links to outside writers does not imply that I agree with everything they’ve written.  For instance, this has nothing to do with Presidential politics.  Separately, certain milblogs not listed have written about the topic with apparently zero research under their belts.  No links to the prattle.)
