When I went active duty right after high school, it was an insanely unpopular path to take. We were only a year or so removed from the fall of Saigon and years of Vietnam didn’t help the public’s perception of the military.

I got it. If things break badly, the results can be devastating for those who wear the uniform.

I did my tour of service and that helped me for the rest of my life. Except for Iran and the hostages, it was a relatively quiet four years, thank goodness. College was a tough adjustment but, I stuck it out and even earned a masters. Retired now, it all worked out nicely.

lol we're so screwed if a major war breaks out. Full disclosure, not part of my Army...



Well this sums it up.
A 2020 Pentagon study found that 77% of Gen Z were ineligible for military service without a waiver. Reasons for this included being overweight, drug and alcohol abuse, and medical, physical, and mental health issues

In 1977, it was said that the Airman’s Club at Sheppard Air Force base sold more beer in a single night than anywhere else in Texas except for the Houston Astrodome when it was open. The beer was cheap and the bands were great….every single night. Kind of glad that I was only there for about 5 months.

Enuf said here. Check it out. Check and validate. Make your own decisions. I don't shop Tractor Supply anymore.

I don't care what you are attracted to, nor what you do in a bedroom. But don't indoctrinate the children.

This is what I heard about Tractor Supply! No more shopping there for us (youtube.com)

And yeah, if eating crayons and saving the country by killing the bad guys with extreme prejudice in a war is what it takes to win. Eat crayons and win. Go Marines!!

Semper Fi.

Isn't it curious how every company that goes Woke, goes Broke. Or changes their direction. Thank God that we are still at that place in understanding. Going Woke isn't just signs of a trend, it's signs of the End of mankind as we know it. Are you ready for that?

Good Morning guys,

I'd prefer if this thread would stay on topic towards military stuff....

Everyone has thier choices on where to shop and not shop.

Just Ridiculous

There is a minimum score to serve without a degree.

Frankly, a high school degree today doesn’t indicated a minimum level of intelligence. It’s despicable what our schools are turning out.

I met a couple guys in my basic training squadron whose future jobs in the USAF was going to be cooks and truck drivers. Many of them had to take remedial reading classes also.

I’ve also known a lot of extremely intelligent people who didn’t have a high school degree, several have done quite well in life. I suspect that based on a very small sample set, a decent percentage of the “Greatest Generation“ never graduated from high school and successfully served during WWII. I can think of three in my family who’s served w/o a degree. Why? Poor with a total of 14 siblings.

Yes, the world is more complicated today, no doubt, but if they want to serve and are qualified when so many aren’t, sign ‘em up.

RIP Toby Keith, He did a lot of USO tours and a ton of "support the troops" type stuff for many of us that served overseas.
