On the surface, predictability and stability may sound great, but the hardship and unpredictabilty of military life is what keeps us sharp and prepared. The stress level for those in the military is always kept high (even at home) to ensure we can cope when it comes time to move from training to fighting. If you're not fighting, you're training and conditioning for the time when you will be fighting. Predictability makes one a soft target, and stability makes one unprepared for the unexpected.

It is interesting that the new Army Secretary is calling for more predictability SFC Joe S. Davis Jr., MSM, DSL. The only way we can actually get more predictability is if we are the aggressor and we are have the initiative. As long as our enemies have a vote the future will always be largely unpredictable. Stability on the other hand speaks to force size and rotations between deployed and dwell times at home station. Stability tends to apply to high density units and is in shorty supply among high demand low-density units.
It is somewhat disingenuous at a time when the Army is being drawn to close to pre WWII levels and there is a push to open up all positions to women which means men will be drawn down at a higher rate that they would be if women were not being recruited to fill their billets.
