Recruitment Nightmares

The U.S. Military has an extremely difficult time filling its ranks. Recruitment is at an all-time low and shockingly much of this has to do with being ‘woke’. What in the hell is ‘woke’ you ask? Woke is simply defined as “alert to injustice in society. especially racism”.

Recently the Army dropped the high school diploma or GED-equivalent requirements for new recruits. Both the Army and Marine Corps have also modified their tattoo restrictions. All in an effort to attract new recruits. The Navy is offering up to $115,000 to select recruits and those wanting to re-enlist. That is $50,000 as a maximum enlistment bonus and student loan repayments at $65,000. This is all at a time when the U.S. seems to be stepping on its own toes and creating the problems that they are trying to solve. As an example, instead of allowing homosexuals to simply enlist, today’s modern ‘woke’ military, is actually celebrating it and allowing rainbow flags to be flown in garrison.

When I was on active duty it was during “don’t ask, don’t tell”. And now today we have done a 180-degree reversal and are alienating those that are heterosexual and forcing them to partake in the celebration of homosexuality. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with being homosexual, that is your choice, but I also believe that your choice shouldn’t be forced on everyone else in your unit.

We created these problems, we are gearing up to force 60,000 active duty service members to leave the military because they refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The same vaccine that the U.S. Government is no longer forcing citizens and the military to take. Let me get this straight, the solution to the recruitment problem is to allow 60,000 qualified and trained members to leave. And then offer huge incentives to enlist.

We did the same damn thing with gasoline, we closed pipelines and then can’t figure out why gas is $5 a gallon. The damn right hand has no clue what the left hand is doing.

I can see exactly what is going to happen, we are going to give an 18-year-old kid, right out of high school, $50,000 to enlist, they are going to get to their first duty station and that $50K is going to burn a hole in their pockets. They are going to buy a car they won’t be able to afford, and they will spend it on alcohol, prostitutes, and other expensive things. All this is going to do is cause more problems. Then you waive the high-school or GED requirements and you have a bunch of undereducated dumbasses, with $50k in their pockets, looking to cause trouble wherever they go. Mark my words, this isn’t going to end well.

The Army is accepting recruits with an ASVAB or Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery score as low as 21.
