This is spin talk for we are so short of warm bodies that we will do anything. Unfortunately the proof of whether something is missing is … horrible. This is far too reminiscent of what the military did in the late 60s/early 70s. And look how well that turned out.I take this a bit personally as these are the people who are going to be next to Staff Sgt. Big Brother Collateral Damage should he ever have to play another round in the George Bush Desert Classic.
Any senior officer who signed off on this should resign or face a court-martial.
And, by the way, congrats to Jenna Bush on her engagement. Since she’s not in the service. I assume her fiance is.
Remember: Army Strong is Army Dumb
