He cannot do anything really.

Dude is in charge of a ‘special troops battalion’ haha. It’s the fucking band and other POG units that don’t fall into any practical categories.

Him resigning is kinda dumb but he decided he REALLY didn’t want the vax.

Reaffirming my belief that, like cops, military personnel fall into two categories: Those that can’t do anything, and those that won’t.

Assuming you have never been either?

Ex USAF and was active duty during the early to mid 90’s. This was around the time when they were first kicking around the idea of letting gays in (don’t ask don’t tell) and there was a big backlash about it (at least in the lower rank circles I was in). I was also a dumb af kid who didn’t know how things really worked (still dumb af but to a lesser degree these days, I like to think).

I was in the Army when Obama finally let them come out. We had maybe one openly gay guy in our support company, but the infantry companies had no one come out. We just made jokes about pairing up for the BAH and then having ‘open relationship’ — this way we have an out when bringing back the girls from the bars. The people drawn to combat arms tend to be the stereotypical masculine types. Same reason they cannot get enough females to create an all-vagina infantry company
