• MADNESS: Military Ordered To Remove Combat Patches

    On the military site Rally Point, MSG Wally Carmichael posted a comment titled,

    Should we remove combat patches to be sensitive to those who don’t have them?

    “(Unit Name withheld) BCT ordered to remove combat patches during training at Fort NoMatter so the ones without them don’t get ‪‎hurt feelings‬.

    Reason? “The unit just returned from Afghanistan and almost everyone has a patch but the large influx of new soldiers are E1 and E2s that have never deployed and they are saying they are left out because they don’t have a patch.”

    Rally Point is a forum for military folks. It calls itself, The Professional Military Network. It’s the kind of place military minded individuals like to hang out online.

    This idea of taking combat patches off of soldiers coming back from combat so as to not make individuals who don’t have patches feel bad is insane!

    It didn’t go over too well in the forum either. Here are some of the comments:

    This can’t be true.
    If it is, the Brigade Commander or whatever schmuck came up with this needs to hang up their boots.

    This is just like all of these college students seeking “safe spaces” on campus so they can go suck their thumbs when they don’t get their way. Laughable, but yet spreading like a disease infecting today’s youth.

    WTF? suck it up buttercup. They earned those patches. you want one? Go out and earn it. Should tell them if they wanted to be issued feelings they should have joined the Air Force.

    You can read them all at Rally Point.

    The PC police are hitting hard at our military. This is how a great great country declines. One patch at a time.
