Destruction of America: U.S. Army recruits ‘not strong enough to throw grenades,’ Military drops requirement to accommodate snowflakes.

Thanks to our Liberal P.C. Culture, the newest generation of Army recruits are ‘entitled, undisciplined & not strong enough to throw grenades.’

current generation of U.S. Army

Just when you think things can’t get worse with our backward society, you hear something like this and realize we really are doomed.

The U.S. Army will soon launch a redesign of Basic Combat Training, which they say is meant to build more discipline among the ranks as current recruits often show up with sloppy appearances and bad, undisciplined attitudes.

Major General Malcolm Frost, head of the US Army Center of Initial Military Training, told

What leaders have observed in general is they believe that there is too much of a sense of entitlement, questioning of lawful orders, not listening to instruction, too much of a buddy mentality with NCOs and officers and a lot of tardiness being late to formation and duties,” Frost said.

While this may seem like a good thing to fix, it’s the training that is being dropped as a requirement for graduation that is most concerning.

The current generation of recruits lacks the ability to throw and navigate, so the U.S. Army is dropping the graduation requirements to accommodate diversity in their ranks.

You really can’t make this up. The latest generation of U.S. Army recruits will no longer be required to pass the land navigation course, and they will no longer have to worry about grenade qualification because the Army is now a liberal social experiment factory that can’t seem to find recruits who can throw a 14-ounce grenade the required 25 meters.

Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost, commanding general of the U.S. Army Center of Initial Military Training, told defense reporters on Friday that “We are finding that there are a large number of trainees that come in that quite frankly just physically don’t have the capacity to throw a hand grenade 20 to 25 to 30 meters. In 10 weeks, we are on a 48-hour period; you are just not going to be able to teach someone how to throw if they haven’t thrown growing up.”

So now to make the social justice warriors, soy boys, and sissies of the current generation happy, the U.S. Army has decided it’s not really important that their recruits be able to safely throw a grenade far enough away, so they don’t kill themselves and the troops around them. Instead, we are going to worry about people’s feelings and not offend anyone who wasn’t taught how to throw a football growing up.

Military Diversity
It seems Diversity is now important than actually winning wars…

Call me crazy, but I thought the military was about warfighting, not catering to a generation of social justice causes, pansies, the LGBT (QRZ^$ and any other fucking letter or symbol they add on) lobby, and those who can’t toss a 14-ounce grenade.

So while the media tries to convince you that Russia is our enemy, they conveniently ignore the fact that traitors in this country are sissifying the troops who are supposed to defend us from our enemies.

So thanks to the bullshit politically correct culture that has invaded every aspect of our society, the future U.S. military will not only be made up of people who literally throw like little girls, but they’ll also not be able to find their way around the war zone without Google Maps telling them where to turn.

  1. Sounds about right; the participation trophy generation who was rewarded for every non-accomplishment is now grown up and ready to get a participation trophy from the government. Winning is no longer important. Sadly these dipshits will learn real quick why being able to throw a grenade is so important.

    • Next time USA gets into a conflict where our opponent can really fight back, we’ll get our asses handed to us. Our pussified troops will get slaughtered because of things like this and no air cover because only 1 in 6 of our POS F35s can get off the ground.

  2. This has been going on for awhile now. It started happening when Drill Sergeants were forced to be your friend and not the bastards they need to be to prepare you for the reality of war.

    Anyone who can’t throw a grenade 25 meters should not be in the military.

    • Back in 1988 when I was about to graduate from the U.S. Army Drill Sergeant school in F.T. Jackson S.C. (When it wasn’t called relaxin’ Jackson yet) The CSM of one of the 2nd Training Brigade told us we weren’t allowed to drop recruits for motivational push ups and the only push ups they would do were at official PT session and that we would let them put on their running shoes to mark them to the rifle range, to change into their boots once we got there, I knew then it was starting to go downhill. Then after I was done with being on the Trail, the stress cards. By the time I retired in 2009, it had become a social experiment. The only warriors we have are the line units and Special Ops. The line units are suffering too, as with Rangers. I hope our Green Berets never have to put up with the indignities the rest of the Army has suffered at the hands of these snowflake Generals. (I know a few good to Generals, but many of them are just political pukes.)

  3. Wow! I’m 62 ears old, and I’m pretty sure I can pass a WWII Army physical fitness test. It might hurt a bit, but I’d damn well die before I’d fail. What the hell is wrong with these sissies?

  4. It is not just the Army. I was at a Marine Recruiting Office and four young men there not a one of them could do a pull up. I was 71 at the time and I could do one. It made me sick at my stomach to see what our great military has come to. Our military could not hit their ass with both hands. I see no hope of it getting any better with the PC crowd in charge.

  5. Not all the weaklings are snowflakes. Our fourth son is currently in Army Recruit Training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. He has struggled his whole life with physical fitness. He has a lightening fast metabolism and can hardly maintain his weight. He is an artist and musician, with a strong interest in physical sciences and wants to be an RN. He is 6’4″ and weighs about 150. He is just a tall, skinny dude. He was homeschooled until middle school, is totally patriotic and loves shooting and wilderness camping. He joined the Army (Iowa National Guard) to become a combat medic. He is often frustrated that others in his platoon don’t listen, make trouble, complain and are obnoxious. But he pushes through and does his best. His physical weaknesses are a challenge, but he has mental and spiritual strength, as well as a maturity that sets him apart.

    • I do not know your son so I will not say anything disparaging about him personally but a medic or corpsman in the Corps was in my day a very strenuous job especially in combat. Both times I was hit in Nam a corpsman carried me to safety and I am not a small person. Physical ability is a must in a well prepared military unit or the combat efficiency is either very low or non existent. That is just the reality of the military. As long as members of the units NCO’s and Officers blow in their ears instead of knocking them up beside their heads it will not change but surely will get worse. What do I know I am just and old grey haired man.

      • Thank you for not disparaging our son. He graduated this week and is now in TX for his medical training. He gained eight pounds while in training, passed the PFT and we are grateful. I did find out from my husband, who attended his graduation, that on the last day of “The Forge” our son passed out while marching. The DS thought he was a heat exhaustion casualty, but it was dehydration and exhaustion. Our son never complained or asked for accommodations, he just kept marching until he dropped. He has the heart and determination to finish what he started. He spent a couple of hours in the hospital resting and rehydrating and then went back out to the field to finish the exercise. I think there is room for all physical types, as long as their motivation, values, and heart are in the right place.

  6. Those are not “recruits” in the first photo, its worse than that,
    They are third and fourth year USMA cadets, as equally (oftentimes more so) worthless nowadays as “recruits not strong enough to throw grenades,” with a PC Brigadier General at the center.


  8. Lord help us JESUS! America is raising a nation of “whimps”! Help us JESUS! we got to start at the home with parents and we know we have many parents that are “whimps” that are sometimes worse than their kids!

  9. its sad but as “a girl” my daughter and I can throw a grenade farther than these sisified idiots. they are prepping them for something different than warfare..

  10. The coming collapse of USA will be much worse and much more violent than the collapse of USSR. They didn’t enjoy our ‘diversity’.
