Generals have made up quite a large number of the Army’s non-deployable troops | Army Times

The Army released its in-house non-deployable policy on Nov. 13, while touting the progress it’s made in recent years to bring its overall numbers down from 15 percent to about 6 percent of the force today.

According to data obtained by USA Today, the service’s top officers were well represented among those sidelined from serving in contingency operations.

One in five was out of service in 2016, according to data pulled from a June 2017 report on the Army’s general officer corps, at a time when scandals plaguing top leaders in all four services were making headline after headline. The Army is authorized about 230 general officers at any given time.
