Army Prepares For Admission of Transgenders
A World Gone Mad
You are entering the Twilight Zone
(Red State) - I can’t wrap my brain around the level of crazy it takes to get us to this point in our nation’s short history, so I’m going to let you readers wrestle with this one, awhile.
First of all, I can’t stop thinking of Jamie Farr’s “Klinger” character from M*A*S*H. Somebody forgot to tell the Department of Defense that that was parody. Klinger was playing crazy by dressing up in drag, hoping to get sent home, because that’s what is supposed to happen. You don’t allow those who have proven mental or emotional illnesses to serve in the military. They are unstable and a danger to their team.
Unfortunately, we had an Obama presidency, and he set about to make the U.S. military a social justice lab, rather than to build them up as an elite fighting force, prepared in every way to defend our nation.
Currently, the Defense Department is working to meet a July 1 deadline for transgender integration training.
“All of this is an effort to ensure the seamless transition and the full implementation of DoD policy,” said Zenia Boswell, a representative from the Army National Guard’s Personnel Policy Division, in a Thursday press release.
As of July 1, the release went on to say, “a person’s gender status — including being transgender — will no longer be a disqualifying factor from enlisting in the military.”
But it’s more complicated than that, as DoD has not yet finalized a transgender accessions policy. In the meantime, officials said, units are continuing to get training on the existing directive for currently serving soldiers.
To be clear, an indefinite hold was put on transgender admissions, but they’re moving forward, in preparation for what seems to be an anticipated lift.
