US Army: Sofa King Weak | SOTG 993

Our military continues to be used as a liberal social experiment. The US Army Command Sergeant Major in charge of training has announced a new policy to make the new recruits’ basic training experience a bit more kind and gentle. 

Not to be outdone, the US Navy has announced a #MeToo moved to make the ethos and mission statement of the Seals and SWCC “gender-neutral”.  Yep, because that is the greatest problem our nation is facing today; a lack of gender-neutral language. Pathetic!

We have a Brownell’s Bullet Points for you. Rather than raise prices during the crisis, Brownells has AR parts on sale. Also, during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, Professor Paul explains how a chainsaw is very much like a defensive firearm.

The U.S. Army has replaced the chaotic reception recruits entering basic training have long received from shouting drill sergeants with a training event designed to create a bond with their teammates and leaders.

Day one of Army Basic Combat Training has always been a rite of passage that involved menacing groups of drill sergeants descending on terrified recruits, yelling commands and ordering trainees to perform push-ups and other exercises with packed duffel bags strapped to their backs.

The U.S. Navy SEALs and the Navy Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) recently changed their ethos and creed statements to reflect a gender-neutral presentation of the elite Navy outfits, doing away with gendered terms like “brotherhood.”

One change to the SEAL ethos was to alter a sentence in the first paragraph of the ethos to say, “Common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed” instead of the original, “A common man with uncommon desire to succeed.”
