    Default This is Disgusting and Depressing

    http://www.collegejournal.com/succes...216-jaffe.html

    That's a somewhat lengthy article about what the Army's basic training has become. It's horrifying. For some time I've been saying that this Iraqi adventure is dismantling our military, and this article just drives the point home. Not only are we allowing morons and middle-aged people to put on the uniform, but now we're bringing in the clinically depressed and those that don't respond well to authority.

    dont feel bad, MikeL... the Marine Corps has changed boot camp a little to make it more PC . seems the mothers of america dont appreciate their sons getting yelled at or pushed around. message to mothers of america: political correctness does not exist in war. boot camp is for a reason, to learn how to stay alive. you shouldnt have raised such a pussy for a son.
    thanks for listening!

    The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!

    That's at Ft Leonardwood, MO. That's where the non-combat MOS folks go.
    Ft. Benning, GA, is still real-man country, you get time off only if you pass out in a pool of your own vomit, and that'sonly long enough for someone to get a bucket.

    The problem is that the Army has always had a two tier approach to basic and it's always been questioned. They feel that there is no need to train a dental assistant the same as a guy with an Airborne slot. The problem today is that there are no front lines and that dental assistant is just as likely to come face to face with a Jihadist as a Ranger will. The difference is that the Ranger will know what to do and the dental assistant won't.
    The best example is the whole Jessica Lynch story, she was with a transport unit , everyone had gone through a "Lighter" basic training and then was sent to their various MOS School. They got lost because nobody could read a map, their weapons all jammed because they were not kept clean and it was only dumb luck that one Corpral managed to find a working weapon and flank-then take out a 60mm morter crew. The rest of the soldiers didn't know what to do, partially because their command never trained them in an ambush scenareo , but also because they hadn't fired and manuevered since basic training.
    Training for those folks falls to individual units, the 101st's truck drivers are usually up to speed, but even their dental assistants have to complete Air Assault School. Back in the 80s, the 7thID(L) sent all of it's non-combat MOS's through "Lightfighter Orientation", it was about two weeks long and they have to learn to set Claymores, operate all the various weapons, conduct and ambush and an assault on a fixed position. They wrapped up the two weeks with a 20 mile roadmarch in full combat laod. They all shot once a week and qualified once a month on the M-16A2. There was no lagging.

    Meanwhile, the USMC has had a smarter approach, everyone gets the same training and meets the same standard to earn the right to be called a Marine and they have never had a problem meeting recruiting goals.

    The Air Force has added a more complex (for the Air Froce) combat weapons training at Lackland AFB, they have a cool live-fire range. They ahve also just announced that they've added two weeks for language training.

    I agree. This is a mortifying development. While I'm not sure your new
    gatling gun is gonna do you any good Mike, I too fear the future.
