Please, for theirs and your sake dont let them join.Got to say that my kids want to join the Army. Since, this shit has started I tell them about it and say maybe you should look into something different. I was proud at first as I have serve, my father served, my older brother served and someone in my linage has served since my family came to America from Ireland. Things have changed. Hopefully this can be corrected by the time they can serve, but I doubt it.
Theres a reason mid-level NCOs are leaving. It's because we cannot change anything and when we try, we are now "the problem" in the military.
