That is bizarre news IMHO CW5 Jack Cardwell that the National Guard Bureau is abandoning the Minuteman logo for what i consider a spurious rationale.
I concur with the author of the journal article you linked to. This seems to be dumbing down to the lowest common denominator instead of lifting up the knowledge of the students.
"On March 25th, the National Guard Bureau officially announced new branding for recruiting. The traditional “Minuteman” logo will no longer appear on recruiting materials. It was reported that the image did not “resonate” with 16-18-year-old high school students because of lack of knowledge of the historic symbol. Concerns were also expressed that iconic figure from American history wasn’t “inclusive.” Furthermore, due to “no tolerance” policies concerning the display of images of firearms in schools, the traditional Minuteman logo could not be displayed due to inclusion of an 18th century flintlock rifle. Now the National Guard will be represented by a lackluster shield shaped black logo with white and gold lettering. The new recruiting videos will focus primarily on the National Guard’s domestic mission of natural disaster relief."

Images:
1. National Guard Bureau logo Minuteman
2. National Guard Bureau logo revised.
