This entire article certainly was true when I left in '95--I was one of the 'exodus Captains'. Clinton wrecked the Army and it's leaders were only too happy to cave into political correctness.

Now I am in the NG.... The points of this article are now made moot by our current conflict. A Hot War always injects a good dose of Professionalism into a formerly peacetime Army.

Rumsfeld with the help of GEN Schoomaker put a much needed boot in the Army's ass.

I think this is a good article to show how far we had to come to dominate far lands as we do now. We did falter, but we learn quickly--it beats dyin'.

Ohhhhhh....I thought the voice quoting this sounded, very, very aged and crackly...

...I'd Sure like for the Duo Author's to do a Sequal--Just so we can have an UPDATE.
