Since the end of the Vietnam War, more than 15,000 members of the U.S. armed forces have died in mishaps. The vast majority of these deaths were preventable. The sad fact is that safety is rarely a top priority for military leaders. When accidents occur, the investigations are often bungled, finding a scapegoat is all too common, and over-ups abound because the final Safety Investigation Board reports are classified. From an expert who observed the system from the inside, Silent Knights reveals some of the military's most unsettling secrets. Dr. Alan E. Diehl explains the complex causes of military accidents in layman's terms and helps readers understand the dangers of undervaluing safety, health, ergonomics, and training in the military. He describes how cover-ups have long caused countless deaths and wasted billions of taxpayer's dollars while degrading defense effectiveness. Diehl calls for a new "GI Bill of Rights" that would improve the safety and health of military personnel and establish an independent agency to investigate military accidents. Quantity Available: 1.
