Low Recruit Discipline Prompts Army to Redesign Basic Training
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:25:50 PM »


snip~
The U.S. Army will soon launch a redesign of Basic Combat Training intended to build more discipline after many commanders complained that new soldiers often show up to their first units with a sloppy appearance and undisciplined attitudes.

By early summer, new recruits will go through Army BCT that's designed to instill strict discipline and esprit de corps by placing a new emphasis in drill and ceremony, inspections, pride in military history while increasing the focus on critical training such as physical fitness, marksmanship, communications and battlefield first aid skills.

So, in other words, they're going back to the way most of us were trained before Carter was screwing things up.

Yep. Make the environment comfortable for a cockroach, and you'll be overrun by roaches, make it attractive for a sloth, and the sloth will lounge for days accomplishing nothing, make it attractive to the underachiever, or sexual pervert, and you wind up with all kinds of issues as we're seeing today with the leftist social experiment.
But make it unappealing to everyone but the individual Patriot, and you'll have a fighting force matched by none.
