TOPIC: Shortly after becoming President and Commander-in-Chief, George Walker Bush issued an order to all four-star officers in every military branch who's regional title included "Commander-in-Chief" (for example, Commander in Chief, Pacific [CINCPAC]) to be removed, and that only the President would use that title. Many in the military felt Bush's order was not only petty, but inspired out of jealousy because of the wide-spread criticism that he got special favors to join the Texas National Guard in order to evade being drafted to serve in Vietnam. Upon his becoming President, Barack Obama was informally petitioned by officers in DOD to restore the pre-WW2 CINC titles to regional commanders. Obama, who avoided military service, refused the request.

QUESTION 1/1: Should Donald Trump restore the CINC titles to regional theater commanders?
