The millenial generation is known as the entitled generation so it’s easy to see why the US Army would go ‘old school’ with their training. Let’s face it! The entitled millenials are lazy and undisciplined. Probably has something to do with liberals thinking everyone should get a trophy and kids should have ‘safe spaces’. The result is a society of snowflakes. What else did you seriously expect?
“The U.S. Army will soon launch a redesign of Basic Combat Training (BCT) intended to build more discipline after many commanders complained that new soldiers often show up to their first units with a sloppy appearance and undisciplined attitudes,” Military.com reported Friday.
“By early summer, new recruits will go through Army BCT that’s designed to instill strict discipline and espirit de corps by placing a new emphasis in drill and ceremony, inspections, pride in military history while increasing the focus on critical training such as physical fitness, marksmanship, communications and battlefield first aid skills.”
The new basic training regimen “will also feature three new field training exercises that place a greater emphasis on forcing recruits to demonstrate Warrior Tasks and Battle Drills.”
For those not familiar with military training, those are the skill sets every incoming soldier is taught in order to prepare for combat conditions.
Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost — commanding general of the U.S. Army Center of Initial Military Training — told reporters that the new program came out of surveys given to 27,000 commissioned officers, warrant officers and non-commissioned officers.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, they say they’ve “observed a trend of new soldiers fresh out of training displaying a lack of obedience and poor work ethic as well as being careless with equipment, uniform and appearance.”
“What leaders have observed in general is they believe that there is too much of a sense of entitlement, questioning of lawful orders, not listening to instruction, too much of a buddy mentality with NCOs and officers and a lot of tardiness being late to formation and duties,” Frost said.
“These are trends that they see as increasing that they think are part of the discipline aspect that is missing and that they would like to see in the trainees that become soldiers that come to them as their first unit of assignment.”
And the biggest problem? “The number-one thing that was asked for five-fold or five times as much as any of the other categories was discipline,” Frost said.
You would think that people considering the military as a career might be big on discipline and low on entitlement. Alas, that’s not the case, and thus the Army is going old school.
“First unit assignment leaders want initial entry training to deliver disciplined, physically fit new soldiers who are willing to learn, who are mentally tough, professional and who are proud to serve in the United States Army,” Frost said, according to Stars and Stripes.
“The bottom line is that when you graduate Basic Combat Training (BCT), you are supposed to be ready for your first unit assignment (and) to be ready to step on a plane and go to combat.”
Again, we’re talking about millenials. Millenials that all got a trophy. Millenials that were given ‘safe spaces and coloring books’ when they disagreed. Millenials that think everything should be GIVEN to them including ‘free’ education. Most millenials feel a sense of entitlement when it comes to just about everything. And don’t even get me started on J-O-B!
The fact that we have to train people in discipline when they’re joining — by their own fully informed consent, mind you — a profession that requires significant discipline, that should tell you there are serious issues. And this is hardly a case of overstatement, either, particularly when there’s discussion of soldiers actively disobeying lawful orders.
Our military is one of the finest fighting forces in the world. But if we want it to continue to stay strong with men and women fighting to defend our freedoms, then we need to stop treating them like children and prepare them for the real war out there. That means no safe spaces or coloring books.
