About fucking time. :cool:

Basic training is about to get more advanced. And recruits can thank games for that.

In an interview with Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, NPR reports that the U.S. Army is altering its basic training program for the first time in 20 years, in part to better train recruits weaned on video games.

"This isn't a decline in our recruits; this is a decline in our American society in terms of their physical capacity," Hertling told NPR. "It's just a softer generation."

Hertling goes on to explain that while new soliders are "advanced in terms of their use of technology," they're perhaps "not as advanced in their physical capabilities or ability to go into a fight. So we're taking that into consideration as well in doing this holistic review of how we do training."

Navy basic training needs some holo-decks.

Do you know how hard it is to find a place to masterbate in Orlando Florida?

Wait.. Basic Training is gonna be softer? Or em I just reading Gibberish.
No. It is being redesigned to meet the challenge of softer recruits. Essentially, it is getting harder.
