In The Rear With The Gear

A grandson is in the South Carolina National Guard. Some units (MPs) are being activated and sent to some foreign hellhole. His response to my inquiry is he is assigned to the rear of the rear units; one unlikely to ever be deployed. That makes me happy!

Xiben and his woke appointees couldn’t pull off a proper guard mount inspection let alone putting their asses on the line in any manner to back up our troops.

Brandon is not the most worrisome here.
What scares me more is that our military leadership seems to have been "woke"...
Politicized to an extent I wonder if their any different than the Russian military.
God be with them all.

I had a relative by marriage you might have known, the late LTC "Andy" Anderson, a helicopter pilot. He walked away 6 months short of having 26 years in. He had a few harsh words about the inter politics in the upper ranks came before the welfare of the troops. This was many years ago and I doubt anything has improved.

Good to hear he has a high probability of staying stateside.

He wanted to be a medic like his father bur didn't score high enough. That didn't break my heart.
