Even with two wars that lasted over a decade (and lets be honest, neither of them are even over, no matter what they want to call them) they still let Training turn "soft" and are only just now realizing that the quality of Soldiers is poor because of it? They handcuffed Drill Sergeants because of a few isolated failures, focused more on new uniforms every couple of years, and Power Point people to death over SHARP and EO instead of building Soldiers who are ready to succeed in battle.

The mindset of "The military is just like any other job and we should treat people as such" really did a number on our fighting forces. If you want hardened, disciplined Soldiers ready to pick up arms and kill other Soldiers you need the training to reflect the kind of struggle both physically and mentally that it's going to take to accomplish that.

The article sounds like a needed improvement. We have lost a lot of our decorum and discipline. I hope this helps. It will also provide a greater boost to resilience and mental fortitude. With that said, hand grenade qualification and land nav should remain part of Combat Arms OSUT. We don’t need cooks and pay clerks QUALIFIED on hand grenades, but ground combat units should.
