I just saw a job posting for a logistics management specialist in Natick for Army Tank-Automotive and Armament Command. It pays 76 to 99 thousand. I wonder if we have tanks in Natick Labs/Soldier System. And how does this relate to their work on soldier systems? Will we see tanks practicing on Rt. 27 or Speen St.? Are they surplus gifts from the Pentagon like the leftover humvees from Afghanistan and Iraq? Do we need them here in Natick? Are they researching better tanks, better weapons for the next war or is it for crowd control during civil unrest? I'd like to see $99,000 go to someone who could handle logistics for peace, negotiations, education, health care-someone trying to prevent the next war rather than how to fight it more lethally.
