The New York Times rarely covers the kind of military gadget and gizmo stuff I focus on, but in an interactive feature published Monday, the newspaper asked readers to set their own budgets for two key military radio programs.
The feature proposes cancellation of both the Army's Warrior Information-Tactical (WIN-T) and the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) for a total savings of $15 billion, and then invites readers to set their own budgets for the two projects.
Should one or both programs go away or be scaled back? Let me know.
