Leave it to the Biden Administration to create the quintessential example of the right hand not know what the left hand is doing. What do I mean? The apparent deliberate destruction of the U.S. military, particularly the U.S. Army. Joe Hoft tells half of the story at The Gateway Pundit–Biden Set to PURGE 27.5% of Army Who Aren’t Fully Vaccinated Against COVID with Non-FDA Approved Vaccine. The other half of the story is the fact that the U.S. Army is failing to recruit replacements.
The Associated Press reports that the shortfall in new recruits is hurting the Army’s ability to field an effective combat force:
The Army is significantly cutting the total number of soldiers it expects to have in the force over the next two years, as the U.S. military faces what a top general called “unprecedented challenges” in bringing in recruits.
Army officials on Tuesday said the service will fall about 10,000 soldiers short of its planned end strength for this fiscal year, and prospects for next year are grimmer. Army Gen. Joseph Martin, vice chief of staff for the Army, said it is projecting it will have a total force of 466,400 this year, down from the expected 476,000. And the service could end 2023 with between 445,000 and 452,000 soldiers, depending on how well recruiting and retention go.
With just two and a half months to go in the fiscal year, the Army has achieved just 50% of its recruiting goal of 60,000 soldiers, according to Lt. Col. Randee Farrell, spokeswoman for Army Secretary Christine Wormuth.
You ever wonder why healthy, Caucasian, heterosexual 18 year old men do not want to join an organization that encourages transgender insanity, weakening physical conditioning requirements, insists on that you use correct pronouns and demands you take a vaccine that does not work? Yeah, me neither.
The woke Army, along with the rest of the disgraced Department of Defense, is discovering the hard way that their hatred of white, conservatives is being fully understood by the parents and grand parents of young men who are white conservatives (and religious to boot). Prospective recruits apparently hear the voice of Nancy Reagan–“JUST SAY NO.”
A recent report from the Military Family Advisory Network tells part of the story:
In 2021, just over sixty percent (62.9%) of military and veteran respondents would recommend military life to someone considering it. This statistic represents a troubling drop from the 74.5% of respondents who recommended military life to someone considering it in response to the 2019 survey.
Under half (46.1%) of civilian respondents would recommend military life to someone they care about, unchanged since 2019. Military families who demonstrated excellent family health were significantly more likely to suggest marriage to a service member.
Unfortunately, enlisted families were significantly less likely to recommend military life. The spouse of an active duty Navy member explained, “It is a difficult job and life, and the ‘benefits’ simply are not worth it. Especially since said benefits just keep dwindling and decreasing in quality the longer we are in. Military life not only affects the mental health of the service member but also that of their family. Additionally, I would not want anyone I care about, or even people I don’t care about, to be subjected to toxic work environments.
Russia and China must be laughing their asses off. Are Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley actually secret agents of Russia or China? How else to explain insisting on dumping 252,000 soldiers who refuse to be vaccinated while finding it more difficult to wrangle new recruits. Most Americans do not realize that Ukraine’s Army at the start of Russia’s Special Military Operation was larger than the U.S. Army. But don’t worry, I am sure that Russian Generals are shivering with fear over the prospect of being attacked by purple haired transgender battalions.
