Army Tones Down Drill Sergeants

ABC News
Excerpt:
WASHINGTON Oct 10, 2006 (AP)— Hollywood may have to tone down its portrayal of the military’s screaming, in-your-face boot camp drill sergeant. In today’s Army, shouting is out and a calmer approach to molding young minds is in, says the head of Pentagon personnel. The Army says it has reduced by nearly 7 percent the number of recruits who wash out in the first six to 12 months of military life.

H.Ls. Take:
Recruiting is so bad now, that they have to do anything they can to get more people to sign up and go over to Bush’s Quagmire bloodbath. What would Sergeant Hartmann from Full Metal Jacket have to say about this….

No more crazy Drill Instructors in the Army?

    HL you are just finding out about this. Here’s a news flash for you there is alot of things that they have changed. One is every solider in the infantry gets a foam pad to sleep on. They have had time out cards for a while. If you can’t handle what is going on than you can hold up your time out card and get a break. That all started long before Iraq did. The problem is that alot of bleeding heart’s think that the military should be nice rather than getting them ready to fight a war. As well as alot of idiots going in thinking that it is just to get a college education. And alot of this crap started back in the 90’s. A friend of mine who was in the Army in the late 80’s heard a kid that we worked with talking about the pads and the time out cards and had aa fit about them being candyas*es and that was in 95.

    HL,

    The armed services met all recruitment goals. The proof is in the story I copied and pasted.

    Now if the Washigton Times is reporting the goals have been met, and you are reporting that they have not been met.

    Exactly who is the liar??

  3. HL Says:

    If all of there recruiting goals have been met, then why are guys going back to Iraq for a 4th time that don’t want to be there. Could it be that the Army has lowered its recruiting goals enough to say that they are meeting them.

    Could be a combo of several things I suppose. I know a couple of people who re enlisted because of the bonuses as well.
