General Squarn-Turk's service was largely unremarkable, for the most part continuing the programs started by his predecessors. One of his two major contributions was the expansion and deepening of the curriculum at SLDF military academies, based on the general's belief that officers had to be intelligent and sophisticated as much as they were deadly. The other was his controversial change to allow retiring soldiers to buy their weapons with their muster-out bonus (barring any proscribed Hegemony technology, of course). The policy was originally aimed combating pirates and other criminals, as many retired soldiers become private security guards in the Periphery. However it raised concerns about the proliferation of weapons amongst the populace, especially in cities.
