this was true in the Navy too when i was active duty. there was a quota to be met. i suggested several times that advancement should be by merit and not by race and/or sex. personnel folders should only have their achievements and social security numbers. no goddamn pictures, race identification, etc. etc. but what the fuck you gonna do? new world order indeed.

In the Army they need your picture to see if you are chubby. God help you if you look a little overweight. I heard an interesting story about some officers (I was enlisted) who had their official pictures taken from above, while they were flat on their backs. I guess you don't look so fat that way. They were caught because the people looking at the pictures could see the bottom of their shoes. Much easier to be female or minority I guess. John
