I'm interested in how this Is going to maintain a trained force. Disasters are not linear. We can go for months and sometimes years without significant events. Someone with a three year stint might never deploy or only deploy once or twice. You don't become proficient like that. So does the government then pay college tuition to these folks who haven't deployed? Don't get me wrong, I've worked with Americorps folks before and they were terrific. I just don't see the continuity for them with sporadic disaster work.
