It has ups and downs- now the woke crap is in the majority- have no love of country, nor giving for somebody else. Brainwashed, coupled with the fact so many are so out of shape, they are a heart attack waiting to happen. Don't forget parents unable to raise their kids, and send them to drug land. land

This "Woke" thing is blown out of proportion by ppl that are idiots! Some of the things or conclusions reached, are reality even for me in the mid 70's. I wanted an occupational opportunity, that's why when they offered me a bonus to be a tank driver I said NO. If it doesn't offer a leg up 2 yrs or 20 later, then it's not worth it.
There is a need to get into their heads early, before they are 19, and show what can benefit them in the long run!
Oh and I graduated at 17, from high school, basic and advanced training before I turned 18. My ASVAB scores were high enough to get recruited while in high school. Knew what I wanted and the military could provide some of it. My career started with me graduating helicopter repairman training, UH-1H, with a 89.7 gpa. I became a crew chief and was in the air over the Korean DMZ for Operation Paul Bunyan. I was short and volunteered to go back up.
Get in their head! But maybe they are scared to die!

Capt Seid Waddell - Why would you assume that I did not know what it meant? I simply pointed out if this is the only comeback you can come up with to sound like you can make a argument you already lost the debate.

1SG Mark Rodgers - Are you me!? LOL! I did the same. Graduated at 17 and was in the Army (Delayed entry program) at 18. I scored high and elected aviation maintenance Uh-1H Helicopter repairer. Became Crew Chief. Another duty station, floor phased maintenance supervisor. Pushed out in 92 during RIF. Army got rid of Huey's and no longer had need of me, refused to let me transition to anything else such as Black Hawk, Chinook, Apache etc. My son is 24 and wanted to join the military but he's autistic. Recruiter told him no. We have been a military family since the Korean war. The way things are now, I don't blame the younger generation for not wanting to join. The military has changed drastically.

I listen to Christian radio and they have interviewed servicemembers who have recently separated from active duty. ALL have said money is being spent on "woke policies". You can't expect people to want to join the military when they know their very faith will be a detriment.

Since so many of you are completely clueless to what Shoafstall was saying, allow me to educate you. Because infantry is what I know, I'll use that as my first example. As infantry, anything that is not specific to killing the enemy, or that can be applied to combat, is a waste of time. That means mandatory training on how to address ANYONE by pronouns. If I have a rank and a name, use one or the other. Not a fucking pronoun...WOKE as fuck. Recruitment efforts specific to transgendered persons...less than .003% of the US population, who obviously have mental health issues, that takes money away from training for war. WOKE as fuck. The military paying for transgender surgeries and medications that guarantees that service member is non-deployable during times of war...WOKE as fuck. The military changing PT standards, because select social groups politicians want in specific job roles but can't meet the standard. WOKE as fuck. Taking tens of millions of dollars away from training and equipment to change base names...WOKE as fuck. Service women being told to "toughen up" when they don't want to share shower facilities with male transgendered soldiers...WOKE as fuck. Required cyber training on domestic abuse...Yeah, because THAT'LL stop some abusive asshole from being an abusive asshole. If you don't know not to beat a woman before you go in, a 10 minute exercise in mouse clicking isn't going to change anything. Those are but a few examples. For those of you who attacked Shoafstall and completely twisted what he posted, I can forgive your ignorance, I won't forgive your cowardice or laziness in accepting these policies because you're morally weak or bankrupt.

Excellent post. Thank You for sharing this. I think one way would that the Navy never should've came with that High Year Tenure stuff. A lot of active duty Navy Sailors were involuntarily seperated. The same went for the Navy Reserves. I knew a lot of active duty Sailors who were involuntarily seperated. And one E-8 Senior Chied in the Navy Reserves who was involuntarily seperated. Ironically, He was planning to retire as well. The same goes with the active duty Army. They call it Retention Control Program or something by that name. Now, recruiters are having a hard time recruiting individuals.

Sort of like the "up or out" program that looks good on paper but overlooks that a good SFC might not be an effective 1st Sgt.

RCP retention control points are placed for a reason, if you are not bettering yourself and getting promoted why does the military want to carry dead weight.
