    The entire DOD is getting fatter and softer. An inevitable side effect of years of lowering standards to meet increased optempo.

    Please don't get me started. Lol.

    Our physical standards just got WAY tougher... for men.
    As for the females... That's another subject all together that I can't touch publicly until I retire.

    Then again, the Army is so big that the quality spectrum varies dramatically. Dudes from the 75th, some select infantry units and the green berets are absolute studs. However, when I was at Fort Gordon as well as Kadena, what I saw was shocking and embarrassing. Hopefully standards will tighten some day because I feel bad for the thousands of actual warriors who have to work alongside and share the same uniform as the turds that make up the general populous.

    I would have loved to grill that guy on all of his ribbons just to listen to wild explanations. Im also amazed that he was able to get a dress blue blouse in that size.

    I'm sure the back is cut open to allow it to fit. We don't make them that big

    I will say that through all my deployments with sister branches, the USMC are by far the most uniform. They all have the same look, like clones of each other, just different colors. I'm surprised at the results from that article; being in the AF, I would've thought for sure we would be the "winners". Like @BRNG ITT said, standards are lower, opstempo is higher, and with all the cuts we've been doing, now they can't afford to keep losing people

    I was just reading an article last week about the AF getting rid of BF standards for some specialties, I believe their cyber warfare branch is not going to have any.

    I saw the comment about the fat navy chiefs. A lot of those old fat navy chiefs were on sea duty forever and knew their rates inside and out. I would take an old fat navy chief that knew his stuff over the 8 year everybody gets a trophy chiefs that are out on the ships now. They don't know shit about their rates because they are evaluated on how well they can do jobs other than their own. I won't even go on about the CNO and MCPON getting rid of the navy rating structure.

    I'm glad I am retired and looking at all of this from the outside.

    I pity butter bars. Poor bastards are scrutinized so hard. You can always tell which ones will make it to Captain by how humble they are when they check into their first station.

    Been there and done that! As a young 2nd Lt. made the "fatal" mistake of placing my fatigue cap on the 1st Sergeant's desk in the orderly room. Came back later to retrieve it and couldn't find it. Finally located it in the trash can..... Last time I did that LOL! I did make Captain before I left the Army so I must have had some humility. I have a lot more now that I've been married 45 years!
