A friend of mine is a retiring NCO with the 3ID. He tells me that all of the new guys coming into the battalion from AIT are thinking of nothing else, other than the MONEY they will have waiting for them when they get back.

Do me a favor, and d/load the latest beheading video and any of the others, and MAKE your troops watch them. Give them a reality check. They NEED to know just what kind of subhuman shit they WILL be facing. I know you guys are probably doing your best to prepare them, but you know; I just gotta ask it anyway.

I'm asking the NCO's because they are the ones that do the direct training.

Ditto what Lightning_P38 and Grey_Ghost said.

Nobody talks about it - especially not to senior people - all your retiring buddy will hear is cocky attitudes and talks about the money they will have when they return. I bet if you look, though, those same soldiers are updating their wills and making sure their SGLI is squared away.

Yeah, you're probably right. The first thing anybody who visits his house will see when they enter his living room is his framed BS w/V, so they probably just don't want to come across as a wuss.

Unfortunately, some guys will need to see the result of the 2-way rifle range before it REALLY sinks in.
