Mac out of the army would surely improve the army...An idea inspired by a thread on Spacebattles. What if when FDR proposed cutting the US Army budget by half and MacArthur got into a massive shouting match with him, MacArthur said something really insulting in the heat of the moment and Roosevelt actually demanded his resignation before going ahead with the a series of budget cuts over the next few years.
