When I was in the military, one thing we were frequently told was, “If we wanted you to have a family, we would have issued you one.” Admittedly, that was a bit extreme, but what the country is doing now is even more so.
The military isn’t a jobs program. It’s supposed to be how our nation is protected. Our current force isn’t up to the task.

The CIC isn’t up to the task. Congress hasn’t had the moral courage to fulfill their duty and declare a war since WWII.

brother told me, he’s in the army, there are still some patriots in the branches, but it’s getting harder to put up with the woke idiots who are in the higher ranks and it’s only a matter of time before they take over…

I read a piece once by I think Tom Kratman about why Arab armies did so poorly against western enemies and Israel. One strongly contributing factor was the tribalism and in-group preferences- he mentioned being attached to the Egyptian army once. You can put the same uniform on the soldiers and call them the Egyptian army, but each man doesn’t think of himself that way, he’s still a member of whatever tribe he’s from and those guys stick together and f* everyone else. Especially when it comes to making up duty rosters, handing out “good deals” to certain troops etc and everyone knows it. Doesn’t matter how good a soldier you are or how hard you’re trying, the sergeant is going to promote guys from his tribe and not you, you’ll get the shitty duty and if it comes to fighting you’ll get the most dangerous assignments. The troops aren’t stupid so everyone’s energy goes into avoiding work and attention, and if a fight comes they’re looking for a way to desert and get out of there.
This business going on now is establishing privilege tribes in our .mil and we all know it’ll lead to the same things.

I think I remember reading that same piece.
And you’re absolutely right. The irony is palpable: in the name of ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’, they’re pulverizing the esprit de corps that binds the modern military together. It used to be, once you put on the uniform, nothing mattered except ‘do the job’. Yeah, you’re always gonna have Blue Falcons and REMFs but for the most part the ideal was ‘white, black, brown, red, yellow — irrelevant. Only Army green, dress blues, etc were what mattered.’
The idiots who talk about unleashing the military on the civilian populace are too stupid to realize they’ll be trying to sic a crippled hound on a rabid and cornered fox.

Long Marchers have weakened MIL to the point of laughingstock for a reason, they hate America and want it burned to the ground which will be accomplished after losing WWIII as intended by the internal fifth column in the swamp.

Funny thing… when I joined the US Navy submarine service, I needed several waivers. The first was that I understood that providing for my current family of a wife and daughter required financial responsibilities to the same.
So, yeah, my wife did come in my sea bag ; )
