here is my take.
First the poeple joining are good people but some are not suited and should nto be in the military,
PC is killing the military.
Also rapes on men , there has bene a huge jumpon men last year which coincides with letting homosexuals , cross dressers serve openly., 19,000 reported rapes on men in one year and th eleft will say that is just a coincidence, B/S
I know a neighbors kid joined, , why? Bec ause he wanted the benefits, nothing to do with the country he admitted.
There in lies the problem, people today , well many of them join because they want their benefits, free school etc.
I had nightmares, still do sometimes, went through a rough patch but my wife and I got through it.
What we have today is not the world war two guy, the manly guy, no sir what we have is many yong men joining for freebies, and the tests ot get in are pathetic.
Marines now is two pulls ups
women is one pull up
That is it, to graduate is 3 pulls for men and two for women, the running tests is done in sneakers.
Perfect examples, Manning who gave secrets away because he was a homosexual and did to like the law back then.
Hasan , who killed for allah at FT Hood
There should be a better screening for mental and physical, get rid of PC, stop promoting officers based on if they;re black or homosexual or hispanic.
“First the people joining are good people but some are not suited and should not be in the military, PC is killing the military.”
There is your answer. It is WHO they military is trying to recruit, not what happens to them after they join up. I know people that have to work the behavioral health centers for the military and their take is that the military seems to be getting a lot of crybabies, the ‘Gen X/Y/WhyMe’ crowd. As a corporate person I see this, too. If you don’t pat these kids on the head every day and tell them what good boys and girls they are they have ‘meltdowns’, just like they did when they were little kids. No personal discipline whatsoever, just the Dr. Spock routine. If these kids took a dump on the living room rug mommy would pat them on the head and say, Gosh, bobby, I hope you can make the bathroom next time.
Wow, it’s a late reply..but, I just saw your post. 2 pull ups, I’m shocked and disappointed in what they have done to not prepare our soldiers better.
