All branches of the US military have been reporting that they are falling short in their recruiting goals, and they have been trying some pretty spectacular stunts to get more recruits. It seems that the Military’s recruiting woes are due to whites not enlisting.

A total of 44,042 new Army recruits were white in 2018, but in 2023 that had fallen to 25,070. That represents a drop of over 19,000 recruits per year. With the Army having a shortfall of more than 10,000 enlistees in its recruiting target, it’s plain to see that it is a lack of white candidates that is the reason.

It seems that whites, and specifically white males, are tired of being told that they are the enemy, that they are racist, and they have decided that they don’t want to sacrifice their lives to defend people and a nation that despises them.

DM, totally right but in addition the kids today see how their older brothers and fathers and uncles were treated by the good ole USA after they fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Many have PTSD and/or injuries and at best get substandard care at the VA.
Meanwhile our “leaders” pulled out of both countries making their sacrifices effectively worthless.

The .mil is about big business and keeping the corporations who pay off the politicians happy rather than defending our country.
Combine that with woke BS and your “coworkers” like Moesha who is over weight, gets knocked up every time a deployment is coming up and who WILL get promoted over you. To hell with that, I wouldn’t join up either.

    ^^^^ THIS 1000x over. Plus encouragement from older family (retired military) to NOT join. General Butler (smedley, USMC) had it right all along…..

    They saw what happened to Gramps got treated after Viet Nam, too.

Got out myself in the 90’s… Did my level best to try to steer my own kids away from doing the same stupid stuff I did, and watching the dumpster fire that is .mil these days glad I did…

No points for guessing which DEI hires will be the first kids hoovered up when they reinstate the draft in a couple of years. Just like the last time we had one.

McNamara’s One Hundred Thousand” 2.0 FTW.

Bonus points if they draft 50% strong and brave wamyn.
Go long on beverage and popcorn stocks. This is getting fun.

If only a million vets hadn’t told them exactly this would happen.

dave in pa · January 11, 2024 at 12:26 pm

this shit started back in the late 1970’s and got worse in the 1980’s. to get promoted
back then you needed at least 990 points if you where white.
every kid that asks me about it , I tell them to learn a trade. the military will fuck you every time they can. I also tell them to go spend some time at the VA and then think about it.
wasn’t too bad in grunt units, but in support units ? no fucking way could a white guy get ahead
fuck them. and I spent over 12 years in too.

    Dave, I topped out at E-5 as an MP after 4 yrs, 9mos, I wanted to stay 20+ and wanted CID, but you had to be an E-6 to apply. I was with in 4 months and more enough points, 1085 to comply. I was up for reenlistment at the time. I told them to forgo my reup bonus, enlist for a solid 6 years and that I would see my promotion and a chance at CID, I was turned down and hard. I am white and intelligent, it scared someone. This was 1980. So yes, the rot started back in McNamara’s watch with his wonder programs and special soldiers and we know whose those were…

As an open question slightly related, I have a 26 year old son who’s severely lacking motivation in finding work and moving out. 20 years ago I would have marched his ass down to the army recruiter and made him sign up, but seriously don’t want that now for all the reason above.

Any thoughts on the Coast Guard? I have zero military experience, and I know the Coast Guard isn’t traditionally thought of as military, but seems like that might be one way to wake his ass up and realize he’s a grown adult and needs to start acting like such. (And yes, I’m well aware of my failures as a parent). So, Coast Guard? Good or bad idea?

    Aesop · January 11, 2024 at 7:45 pm

    Well, on the plus side, the Coasties spend a full enlistment doing their jobs, not training for it, so there’s that.
    However, a non-zero number of those jobs include things like bouy tenders and icebreakers and such, which sucks balls compared to most anything in the Navy except bilge cleaning, IMHO.

    But you’d still be better off marching his ass to the local J.C., and ‘splaining the difference in status between going in as an officer with a college degree, rather than as enlisted cannon fodder.

    Nonetheless, I’d still recommend skipping the whole dotmil thing, and start handing him brochures for Caterpillar’s heavy equipment repair courses. It’s the fast track to a six-figure income inside of 4 years, and they can never fill all the open slots.

      Don W Curton · January 12, 2024 at 8:47 am

      I think 4 years cleaning a bilge would actually be good for him, considering the amply free ride he’s taken on my dime at various junior colleges in the area. He thinks he has it tough. I think he needs to learn what tough is first.

      But yeah, I told him any more schooling that I pay for is in a trade school that I pick out.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Steady Steve · January 12, 2024 at 10:44 pm

      Hey a little time with a needle gun, scraper, and wire wheel in close quarters followed by a little slathering of bilge paint is a good education. On why getting a real education was a better idea in the first place. I think the Coasties are pretty picky about who they recruit if I remember right. Probably that has changed with DEI though.

    While usually looked upon as merely maritime law enforcement, the CG can be deployed overseas to patrol in war zones. They did it in Iraq, and they were in Vietnam patrolling the RVN coast and the Mekong Delta with “cutters” before the Marines landed at Danang on 8 March 1965. They are most certainly a part of the regime security apparatus, make no mistake. They seem to take great pleasure in stopping and boarding all American flagged yachts transiting near Puerto Rico or the USVI, but cannot seem to identify or intercept water infiltration from Baja Mexico by illegals into the San Diego area. They do a great job of maritime rescue, and you have to tip your hat to them for that, but other than that, they are part of the problem.

    EN2 SS · January 13, 2024 at 3:58 pm

    Is he over six feet tall? No?
    Then he won’t be able to wade to shore if his tub sinks, try a trade school.;-))

My family has a long history of military service going back over a hundred years. But our service stopped when my sons retired. No more of my family will give a fuck about the FUSA anymore. My grand kids both male and female are still taught military arts, but by me and my sons to take care of any threats to them in the future.

My son called me laughing a couple weeks ago. My granddaughter, a freshman in high school. Had a football player put his hand where he should not have so she broke his wrist and choked him out. School principle didn’t like that for some reason. But son told them the punk was lucky, daughter had been taught to do more damage than that.

    dave in pa. · January 11, 2024 at 10:09 pm

    sounds like my girls ! one SIL asked me how she learned how to shoot.
    so, I sent him a old picture of her at 12-13 years of age. on the firing line. shooting a M16A1
    on full auto. the helmet was way too big on her. but I told her to unhook the rear sling, let it drop
    and then put your foot on the end. lean into it and keep your weight on the sling. you can see at least 4-5 empty rounds in the air coming out.
    I don’t worry about either one of them. they know how to take care of themselves.
    BTW, range day and I couldn’t find/get a sitter. so the kids came with me. NCOIC had no problem with it. the OIC had to go along with it.

I wonder if all the media advertisements for $19/mo to pay for aid to the disabled or Gold Star families for homes, etc. is giving the possible recruits the idea that if they get injured or killed, they and their families will be left high and dry by this government.
Or those already in a reason to get out!

Interesting – I can’t find any information on “retention”.

And the Pentagon can’t find a billion + dollars of arms shipped to the Ukraine or trillions in government contracts that went where?

Did the “Big Guy” get his 10%? Let’s ask Hunter.
