Rude Awakening!!

Where should I start? I am so happy that the Military has decided to go back to the basics, and let me explain why. When the military became relaxed I just knew they were giving the soldiers just enough rope to hang themselves. So many soldiers took it to far with the stress cards, the tattoos on their necks, all over their legs, pass their short sleeve shirt and piercings in every open space they can find. Soldiers became to civilianized and it hurt the training of the troops. We took the Drill Sergeants out of AIT and gave soldiers more room to play and less time to train. Soldiers came to their units over weight and couldn't pass the APFT, now we are going back to basic where you have to earn the right to be called a Soldier or Sergeant.
The only problem I see is that we have promoted so many that are not qualified to be in leadership positions. Now is the time for them to get trained up or they will probably be losing that rank!
Be careful what you decide to come out with because it may not be to your advantage, there is always a loop hole somewhere in the system.
All I would like to say is, If you have not been doing what it takes to be a good leader, follower or soldier you might want to get the manual and get it together.

Rude Awakening, what a great change for the NCO's and Soldiers. This will allow NCO's to do their jobs live out the Creed of a NonCommissioned Officer. Drill Sergeants back in AIT a great change. Shape up or Shape out.
