The U.S. Army has dropped its high school diploma requirement to get recruits. Why do you think it can't find soldiers?

The U.S. Army announced on Thursday it is removing its requirement for potential recruits to have a high school diploma or GED certificate to enlist, in an effort to improve recruiting numbers.

The Army has met 40 percent of its recruiting goals this year, Military.com reports:

[T]he service announced that individuals may enlist without those previously required education certifications if they ship to basic training this fiscal year, which ends Oct. 1.

Recruits must also be at least 18 years old and otherwise qualify for a job in the active-duty Army. They also must score at least a 50 on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB, an SAT-style quiz to measure a potential recruit's academic ability.

A 50 on the test is a relatively low score, with 31 being the minimum to qualify for service.

The Army's "sister services" seem to have a similar issue with low recruiting numbers "hitting the entire Defense Department," according to Military.com.

Where are the pink berets and crossdressing rangers I was told were going to make up this new, woke and twice as deadly army?

Why would I join the military as they are forcing COVID vaccines on the military. These people know the vaccines do not work and see that there are side affects that causes problems. Further the military is now pushing CRT so the culture is against any whites advancing. This all shows the military is no longer an "everyone is equal" and "you can count on you buddy in the foxhole" place.

I've said for a long time that governmental control over education was not only about producing a dumbed-down electorate who would vote for whoever promises them the most goodies at someone else's expense, but also to fill the ranks of the police and the military with brain-dead drones who don't know history or civics, or possess critical thinking skills. The vax mandates, CRT and "diversity/inclusion" training, the climate BS, and decades of war with absolutely nothing to show for it aren't helping.

The others commenting are correct. When we teach our kids to hate america first, this is what we get.

I make 85 dollars each hour for working an online job at home. I never thought I could do it but my best friend makes 10000 bucks every month working this job and she recommended me to learn more about it. The potential with this is endless.
