Military Service Requirement Reality


Trey Gowdy, a former South Carolina Congressman, responded to a question from a CNN reporter about the ban of transgenders from joining the US armed forces.  As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly.
Question:  How did former President Trump claim to represent all US citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military?  Isn't that discrimination?
Trey Gowdy's Response: “Nobody has a right to serve in the military.  Nobody!  What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer?  It is very far from it - and for good reasons - let me cite a few.
The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.


Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.  He went on to explain:  By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth.  Malnourished?  Drug addiction?  Bad back?  Criminal history?  Low IQ?  Anxiety?  Phobias?  Hearing damage?  Six arms?  Hear voices in your head?  Self-identification as a Unicorn?  Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair?
Can't run the required course in the required time?  Can't do the required number of push-ups?  Not really a morning person?  And refuse to get out of bed before noon?  All can be legitimate reasons for denial.
The Military has one job:  Winning War.  Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream, 'That isn’t Fair?’  War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.
YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around. You don't change the Military - you must change yourself.  The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning.

The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues.  The Military needs to Win Wars and keep our Country safe - PERIOD!

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality...  Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.”

 "Any other questions?"

God Bless America!

"Nobody has a right to serve in the military. Nobody"

Somebody should tell the former Congressman the Selective Service Act still requires 18-year-old males to register. And the Senate is debating whether or not of require 18-year-old females to register.

Considering 1,857,304 draftees fought in Vietnam and 1/3 of the war deaths were draftees, apparently "everybody but the draft dodgers are forced to serve".

"Citizens are denied for having flat feet" and no "PUSSY FOOTING"

And speaking of "flat feet draft dodgers", none of the names on the wall had their daddy pay a doctor to say they had flat feet to avoid the draft.
