Morally, Intellectually or physically unfit for service

That is the quote in this month's EANGUS magazine. The article is written from a survey conducted by the Army's Center for Accessions Research and presented by Gen. William S. Wallace. The report specifies that only 27 percent of youth between the ages of 17 and 24 are eligible for recruiting.

Once a potential soldier is recruited, many drop out or can not further qualify.

Our military is in the top 4th for recruiting and in the top 10% of our citizens.

This is a vast divide. The top 10% are "carrying" the bottom 90%. No wonder our country is in such bad shape.

If you want to have a career and associate with America's best people, one should strongly consider our military.

There is such a huge divide between those that serve or have served and those that don't or haven't.

Our twisted society places the military in a lower echelon of society in general. Grunts are uneducated, poor rubes, more worthy of pity than of honor and appreciation for their service and sacrifice.

It takes a special person to follow through on what is expected of a soldier. It can make or break a person; but that is only understood by those that serve or have served.

Great survey though...golly, I'm really surprised I didn't read about this in the Times or someplace.

Fighting Fifth!!!!

Thanks. Patriots who choose to serve our country are in the top 10%. Those currently in the service are the top 2%. I have posted on this before, here:


The link still is active and accurate.

You know what? Leftist hostility towards our military insures that our military will always be...for the most part...conservative.

That's a GOOD thing!
