We never learn because the elites in Washington don’t feel the pain of the battlefield.

Of course you are right. I read Roman History which our Washington Elites either don’t read or ignore. Many things the Romans did were wrong but just as many were right and one of those was the requirement that the Consuls and Proconsuls have military experience. They were reluctant to place the power into the hands of those without first hand experience of the “on the ground” impact. Too many of our politicians are completely ignorant of what the military is and does. Visiting the troops as a VIP isn’t the same as sleeping in the dirt, eating irregularly if all, not having a shower for days or even weeks, and of course getting shot at.
