It seems that General Mattis wants to do away with senseless training. That is, training that doesn't enhance our warfighting capabilities.
One official with knowledge of the discussions surrounding the memo told Fox News, “servicemembers spending too much time on senseless training that is really a waste of time.” One U.S. military officer said there is “too much sexual harassment training” and not enough time spent at places like the shooting range, for example.I concur. During the latter years of my service, we spend a lot of time on such things as "Equal Opportunity Training", or "Sensitivity Training". That sort of training is generally useless The soldiers considered it a waste of time.
Secretary Mattis is right to cull this sort of nonsense.
Meanwhile, the heat index outside has exceeded triple digits (113F). I think I'll stay in the rest of the afternoon and eat a popsicle or two.
