I'm surprised this hasn't been on RallyPoint. During the increased requirements for the War on Terror, Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. Army increased its requirements for recruiting and saw a change in the waivers granted to some recruits. Some say this led to discipline problems throughout the force and some of the war crimes committed by those who were more likely to be mentally unstable in war. Should the Army (and the military in general) maintain a strict set of entrance requirements that cannot be waivered? With the debate about those with mental health issues and gun violence on the front burner...is this the type of recruit we are looking for? ***Look at SSG Aaron Case's rebuttal to this argument below. He sheds some light on the article and talks about the Army's response.
