The CinC has said he wants our military to reflect our society. As a result we got GLBTQ, we have an OPEN GAY as the Sec of he Navy and is naming ships after Harvey Milk, Caesar Chavez and others who do not deserve it.
All this translates out to either lowering standards or giving passes to meet the “standard” set down by the CinC. That is the reality of the military. 13% of all ranks need to be Blacks, 13% of the Special Forces needs to be Black. I will guess that most on here are familiar with Sheriff David Clarke, he is on Fox News often. I had the opportunity to have dinner with him 1 on 1. I remember asking him if his background was military. He laughed and said no, he had never been in, but his father, Airborne, Ranger, Special Forces had been and it was like have a military career and not being in uniform. We both laughed at that and I now understood. When I was in back in the 60;s some of the best soldiers I saw were Blacks. Back then there were no quotas or a CinC giving directives on racial make up or social engineering. So the guys like David Clarke’s father met the SAME standards as everyone else who had pass the course!
That is NOT going to happen going forward if Hitlery gets in there. YOU WILL have a Army that reflects our society. Lower standards and given a pass is what will occur.
Remember the first Naval female pilot who was carrier qualified: Kara Spears Hultgreen (5 October 1965 – 25 October 1994) was a Lieutenant and Naval Aviator in the United States Navy and the first female carrier-based fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy. She died just months after she was certified for combat, when her F-14 Tomcat crashed into the sea on final approach to USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72).
My flight instructor was one of hers ( I was taking Private Pilot flying which he taught). He got out of the Navy because of that. He spoke freely to me as we would flay around and to say he was livid over the fact she HAD to be passed. In fact she had failed everything time and time again, but the Navy brass said we will have a female carrier pilot come hell or high water. The result, she died failing at what she was doing. On 25 October 1994, Hultgreen died when her F-14A-95-GR, BuNo 160390, coded “NH 103”, crashed on approach to USS Abraham Lincoln.
I will tell you factually that more than once I was called up top to tell why I did not promote a black guy, who had filed a complaints that he was not promoted because he was black. I was never overturned, which is not the point, the point is if did not promote you knew you would be in front of your Co to explain why…I NEVER had to explain WHY about some white guy!
Affirmative Action, Quotas, social engineering will ONLY make America less great. When quotas are mandated then the easy way to solve the problem is to just promote them all and that is where we are going.
