Can the U.S. Military Halt Its Brain Drain?

If anyone thinks fundamental reform and reorganization of the U.S. Army and the larger ground force is unnecessary is either corrupt or stupid or both:

"The U.S. military is in a competition for talent. The best and brightest graduates from American universities are in high demand. According to the Department of Defense, only a half of 1 percent of officers entering the military last year hailed from the top 20 U.S. colleges and universities—a percentage that is half that of just 20 years ago. Moreover, a recent study determined that 40 percent of today’s Marine officers would fail to meet the standards for Marine officer selection in World War II."
