In a continuation of a trend I have been reporting for awhile, the military is shrinking because of a fall in retention and enlistment. First the Army and now the National Guard reports that they are falling short in meeting manpower targets, falling short by about 7,500 troops. Senior leadership is blaming a large decrease in troops reenlisting for the shortfall.
Officials claim that people are not reenlisting because they are disappointed by not being able to deploy and get shot at. I think that’s bullshit. They are failing to reenlist for a few reasons:
- Troops are generally conservative and don’t want woke bullshit training crammed down their throats
- They want to do high speed, low drag shit, not spend time learning each other’s pronouns or diversity training
- The COVID shot requirements
- Handing out abortions so barracks whores can get more action isn’t gonna make up the difference
- Lowering the requirements for enlisting isn’t fixing it
It seems that most of the nation’s military isn’t as excited about woke bullshit as the left would have us believe.
