What ever happened to the "Don't ask. Don't tell." good old days?
that was never on drugs dumb a__
Note to BSG:The military is VERY serious about drug use. Use/presents during use while on active duty = forfeture(sp?) of all bonuses & less than honorable discharge; lying about use prior to taking oath = immediate discharge with no hope of future military service. Our new recruit had 3 urinalysis in four days, while under the care and guidance of the USN for 3 of the 4.
For incredibly dense people, my comment at 7:29 was a JOKE made for the purpose of mocking the U.S. Military's practice of ignoring CURRENT behaviour while focusing on PAST behaviour. I am fully aware that the moronic practice of "Dont ask. Don't tell." is exercised in relation to homosexuality of military personnel.
They never cared in the early 70's!
7:54Do people ALWAYS have to explain humor to you?
mz - It is weird to me that you find you need to explain yourself, defend yourself, promote your intellect, to anonymous people on this blog.It's just odd.Why do you care?Why do you think we care?
i guess you never served in the military. yes its fare from perfict but still not a joke.
shut up, mzchief
8:23I love the military. I support universal service for all young people.But be clear, at the recruiting station may be the only place they supposedly check.While serving in Korea, you could quite literally get high in the barracks without lighting up. And the authorities knew!And alcohol in the military is a mine field...........bargain PK prices NCO clubs almost guarantee over indulgence.Having said that........I would want my kids to serve......after I equipped them with fair warning and that little "responsibility, come to Jesus talk."
Yeah, 8:55 PM, but they ended up with a TON of undesirables in the military in Viet Nam (mixed in with a number of very honorable people), who were as useless and damaging to the military as they were in society. After that, the military learned their own version of "garbage in, garbage out"; which was, "garbage civilian, gabage soldier". Thank goodness, they care nowadays!!
I'm pretty sure MzChief just made you both her bitch.
The "second chance" mentallity is killing the country.No one accepts responsibility.
Whoaaaaaaaa! 8:57I served during the Vietnam era.Many were there because they couldn't afford bribes to officials, and doctors and connected people, to get them out, but they served.My experience tells me some went realtively good people and came back messed up...for multiple reasons: too many to go into here.In basic, AIT, and two duty stations, I saw little of the "garbage" you describe. Actually I am not sure I saw any more than at my current civilian work station.Your brush needs narrowing a good deal.
8:57 AM....If there ever was a draft again they wouldn't care again.When I was drafted in the early 70s all they wanted to know is if you were a member of any "Subversive groups".
I get sucked into the show too.. I didn't really know that they wouldn't let the mother and father both enlist if they have a baby to not put a strain on the fam.. hmmm
The only reason they or most of the ones that inlist is that it is the only JOB they will ever have or keep for over 6 months.
The good news is that even if you're dumb enough to say yes all it means is the recruiter has to do a little extra paper work. Just don't light up the night before boot camp, kids. Knowing is half the battle.
