Secretary of the Army John McHugh penned this internal memorandum on Monday, sent to us by one of our contributors at the Pentagon, indicating that officers who have been to Iraq and Afghanistan must be purged from the ranks since they have been indoctrinated by a useless “combat” mindset.

However, I would add that .mil is going to be "force retiring" very soon.

AD ranks are going to be reduced significantly.

Make no mistake, they took it over in the Clinton administration.  They just haven't completely consolidated yet.

It could be truth.  We actually live in a time when Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual-Transsexual inclusion is more important in the military than combat effectiveness.  It is repugnant.

Nope
Read American Civil-Military Relations: The Soldier and the State in a New Era, eds. Suzanne Nielsen and Don Snider, and get back to us on that.

A friend told me if you want to see how screwed up it is, check out Craigslist for Afghanistan, look at the Casual Relationship section and count the number of ads for male/male and TransSexual/male hookups.  Then realize that it aint the local goat herders putting up those ads.

obviously a joke.

However, I can see this actually being the way things end up happening, Just without documented proof.

Why does it have British-style single quotes? I assume the authors went out of their way to match the look of a real memo. Is that an actual Army convention or something they put in as a hint that it was fake?

and, further, infowars/alex jones.

i'm still really confused how a site full of self-declared rational conservatives is often so taken by emotional string-pulling. everyone says that's a liberal thing.

The military is too large anyway. Cut it by 75% It will be plenty big enough to defend the USA.

Also although this is satire. I've no doubt that in peacetime the Army does its best to muster out combat vets. Because they know what really important and what is mickey mouse what is the term? "chicken shit." Its hard to get a guy who has been shot at to really want to learn to muster out and march inline real well. or go for a ruck run because there s not much else to do bedsides that today. Or to go live in a tent for a month ..... Because he knows...It B.S.

I recently saw another article about enlisted combat vets are "bored" with garrison life.

So even though they'd NEVER put something like this in writing. They will work towards that goal just the same.
