Graduating with your blue cord is not the finish line non Infantry (to include politicians, activists, civilians in general) think it is; graduation merely buys your ticket to the STARTING line. That is not to praise or condemn anyone or any group of people; just for understanding.

But I can't help but notice, 2 EFFING WEEK RECLASS COURSE? For Infantry?! WTF?! I had to go for a 4 week reclass just to drive Army trucks...which in 1 form or another I had been doing my whole Army career. What kind of grunts are THESE guys going to be?!

CPT L S - Wow. Well said. I do believe in building people up instead of tearing them down. Tonight we celebrated my Mother-in-Law's life. I truly loved her. No one can tear down or destroy that celebration. :)

SSG(P) James J. Palmer IV aka "JP4" and SSG (Join to see) it is real easy for some of these items to get off track so quickly when individuals are blocked from making a comment to begin with in response to an individuals comment about said subject. Then the same individual instead of making an appropriate response then starts making personal attacks instead of responding to the subject at hand.

I would suggest that you would review the comments made by said Anonymous individual in this overall thread about me and look at my statements that led up to that personal attack.

Real interesting that said individual then goes on to state - "
I have never made any malicious attacks against anyone based on race and sex, that is just another gross distortion, or lie, from 1SG Burke."

This is how some of these discussion threads get hijacked.

CPT (Anonymous) - Quite an interesting statement, from someone that will make a comment about a persons statement and then will not let them respond appropriately.
In addition, you may want to change your tone about what a personal attack is. And I will give you a couple of examples from this very discussion thread - when someone is asked to back up a statement that they have made due to their position and training and then is called on it, that is not a personal attack; however, when you call someone a troll and make other disparaging remarks about an individual, that is a personal attack.
Last but not least, when someone questions an individuals qualifications due to a statement that they have made, that is not a personal attack either, especially when said statement conflicts with regulations and other policies and common sense; instead of calling them a troll, back up the statement with the appropriate references, and that does not just apply to me but others as well.
Friendly piece of advice - when you make a statement that combined with the information you have made public in your profile does not pass the smell test, expect to be questioned publicly about it. That is not a personal attack either.

Two week re-class....into Infantry? What about the troops that will die under her command if they get deployed?

Anyone thinking this is a good idea or something to celebrate is a idiot or a boot licking politician disguised as a soldier....

I'm said to see such stupidity from a 1SG . Wemone are physically different but not lacking in ability or motivation. This is 2015 we use or minds more than muscles. To fight in today's modern warfare we need to wemone who can proform combat M.O.S.'s. I have personally worked with wemone in combat and they held there own as well as anyone else. In fact there motivation was admirable. Wemone can proforma surchis that would violate cultural believes if men preformed them and wemone can get information that people are afraid to tell a man. For anyone to judge a solider for any reason other than there proformance and skill is to harking back to a times when black men were not good enough to fight.Such views have no place in a modern Army

SGT Ambrose Husser - I wasn't going to say anything, but before claiming anyone on stupidity, your whole comment is plagued with misspellings. Please check your grammar before ridiculing anyone else. Other than that, appreciate your service.
