Strong economy? :abgg2q.jpg:
Fair point. I have issues with the economy currently and inflation is brutal on me too. I am noting that unemployment currently is low. During times of low unemployment historically it is difficult to meet recruitment targets and the government is less reactive to salary changes.

Yeah, that is why there are about 3 jobs available for every 1 person who is "unemployed". The true numbers of people NOT working is probably 2-3 times that because people just refuse to work anymore. Why should they? Mom's basement rent is cheaper and they don't have to pay for gas to get to work!
This could be a factor. It is in their self interest to do that vs. sign 4 year+ commitments.

Also there's lots of problems associated with joining the military anymore.

The vaccines is just one issue.

Low pay...as in servicemen families routinely qualify for welfare and food stamps. A minimum wage job pays much better...if anyone was actually paying that little....most jobs pay more and getting fired from one of those doesn't get you banned from opportunities in life for the rest of your life with a dishonorable discharge.

Women in the services causes a few issues today as well...because they can hurt career advancement without you taking extra precautions to avoid false claims of harassment.
(Including the homosexuals who have joined because "that's where the men are")

Then you have the CIC and the orders that needlessly expend lives in retreat. (Afghanistan...and other locations during Obama administration)

So....yeah. Not a lot of reasons to join and a lot of negatives.

The Navy doesn't do 9 month cruises anymore. They do 7 months tops!

My longest deployment was 7 months in 1992 after the Persian Gulf War ended. We were on the mop-up crew.
Thanks for the irrelevant trivia of the day.

BTW - USS Nimitz just finished a 321 day deployment last year, Gilligan.

Patriotism and the meritocracy are lost. There will be consequences for this when that day comes when the U.S military is needed for the defense of your homeland or a critical ally.

I warned Canada about our ills (our Police Apparatus), I warned Americans about "not becoming more like Canada and our self serving elitist system".

It's not too late, but it's never ideal to play catch up.
We are weakened. Only the 2nd Amendment keeps the Western world alive with a heartbeat. Even so, the sellouts for globalism in our nation is impressive in numbers. Joe is in Europe proving that.

sorry women are equal to me in this country
The Left says there is no longer women, just menstruating people

Should menstruating people be drafted?

Before answering, picture a menstruating person with a machine gun

According to the Pentagon, only 23% of young Americans are able to serve in the military. The rest can not serve due to obesity or chronic diseases. And of those eligible, only 9% want to serve in the US military. According to surveys, 57% of young people are just afraid to be in the army. This year, too, they are under psychological pressure from the situation in Ukraine. Many fear they will be sent to Eastern Europe.

Due to lack of recruitment, the Pentagon is forced to reduce the requirements for new recruits. U.S. military will be forced to reduce to 473,000 troops next year. This is the minimum size since 1940.

Now they are so desperate, that they lower standards for the mentally ill, so degenrate Emma and her equally degenerate 2 moms can serve as well.


Well, if my country kept sending me into pointless wars only to lose and die over nothing, i too wouldn't want to join the Army.

Israel has long allowed women to defend their nation.

But those are normal women

I'm talking about insane Left wing women in the US who don't know they are a woman

Is there any other country in the world where women try to wear a genital hat while not admitting that their genitals they have on their head, (proudly displayed I might add), actually has anything to do with making them a woman?

Why should a White boy join the military nowadays?

It has become a filthy organization hell bent on diversity and inclusion rather than being an effective fighting force.

It has been used to protect the Swamp that stole an election from the American people.

The Commander in Chief is a corrupt dufus that doesn't give a shit about the military and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is a traitor to his country. The Secretaries of the various branches are all dumbasses. They couldn't even pull of the withdrawal from Afghanistan without fucking it up.

Let the goddamn affirmative action Negroes, unqualified women, queers and transsexuals join the military. The patriotic White boys that have always been the backbone of the military can stay at home and practice with their AR-15s.

This country ain't worth shit anymore anyhow with the Libtards and their agenda to turn it into a Socialist shithole.

When I visited Israel the female IDF soldiers were smoking hot and tough as nails.

Obviously they know which end of the tube the round comes out but also they had physical strength and were capable of kicking any guys butt.

Compulsory service...it has an effect.

Using modern, state of the art military equipment, we no longer need a million strong military

Our equipment and training are force multipliers that allow you to be more lethal with less personnel

We are also moving to drones and robots that remove the burden on soldiers and airmen
