The Sergeant Major of the Army Is At It Again

I won’t comment on all the ideas, I have not had time to digest them.  Off the top of my head I think Up or Out for NCOs is stupid, just like I think it is stupid for well performing officers.  The idea that really sticks in my craw, is his notion of bringing back “Pinks and Greens” for the Army.  Read it for yourself.

Three comments; 1.  You can’t be serious that you want to change our uniform again, 2. How much will this cost the Army? 3.  You do realize that “Pinks and Greens” was an officers uniform.  Enlisted wore OD Green Jacket and Trousers.  Officers had a cloth belt all the time and a Sam Browne belt for dress occasions, enlisted had no belt normally and NCO belt for dress occasions.

    The only ways to get to Zero Non-deployables is to get rid of women or make abortion mandatory. And get rid of TDRL, schools and outside education like Master’s Degrees. And get rid of the training base. And recruiters. SMA didn’t spare a neuron did he?

    All these uniform machinations must stem from the same root cause–getting rid of greens. The all-blues idea originated with GEN Schoomaker, and I don’t think it’s been 100% successful. Then again, I didn’t much like berets and was fortunate enough to retire before they became mandatory.
