As we all know, the Superintendent put out a statement saying that he supported cadet life initiatives for the Corps during exams and that “stress-busters” were a long standing wellness initiative. LtCol P had addressed this in a previous post. Although I do not remember the Cadet Equity Association having any such thing to do with them. In fact I never thought the CEA was a good use of resources as the Officer of the Guard Association had the ability to execute the same function and did when the Corps was all male.
Stress Busters were a thing when I was at the funny farm and they were run by Cadet Counseling Center and the Cadet Peer Educators. There weren’t coloring stations or coloring books; there were games, free books, lots of candy and cookies.
Now I’m not as Old Corps as JPP and DaveO…but yeah…coloring books were real. My biggest issue with the evidence present over at Citadel Safari. Below is a Snapchat screenshot that was posted far and wide on Facebook, my largest problem with it, because there are too many to begin with. Obviously I’ve talked about how the Corps has gone soft, and VMI never was or ever will be…but Master Sergeant, please explain why you are at the coloring table with what appears to be only Rats?
