Marines Studying Mindfulness-Based Training - ABC News

The zero-defects crowd has seen that not allowing hard chargers the latitude to blow off steam is causing problems.
Yoga and meditation won't replace a case of beer and some float widows.
The Christian right ain't gonna like this. Teaching Buddhism to God's own chosen troops?
Marines studying yoga and West Point Cadets learning how to defeat the "vast right wing conspiracy". Welcome to the liberal military.

People who haven't been in the armed forces don't realize just how MUCH really stupid stuff goes on.
Men only stare at goats when the fat asses in the Pentagon are taking their afternoon naps and the people who couldn't find a spy in the next cubicle, the CIA, is running the show. Bill Clinton and his strange wife tried to force the Marines to train men and women in the same boot-camp platoons like the Army and (God love them) the Marines refused. A Clinton spokesperson at the time called them Neanderthals or sexist maniacs or something worse but they stuck to it. Stupid stuff might go on in the Army or the Navy but not the Marines.
