Army Daze

Now I’ve seen it all:

The Army is ordering its hardened combat veterans to wear fake breasts and empathy bellies so they can better understand how pregnant soldiers feel during physical training. (Army Orders Soldiers to Wear Fake Breasts and ‘Empathy’ Bellies|Fox Nation)

How in the name of George Patton has the U.S. Army that I remember devolved from 50-yard low crawls through cold mud and muck and 18-mile night marches to “empathy bellies” and phoney boobies?

This week, 14 non-commissioned officers at Camp Zama took turns wearing the “pregnancy simulators” as they stretched, twisted and exercised during a three-day class that teaches them to serve as fitness instructors for pregnant soldiers and new mothers.

Army enlisted leaders all over the world are being ordered to take the Pregnancy Postpartum Physical Training Exercise Leaders Course, or PPPT, according to U.S. Army Medical Activity Japan health promotion educator Jana York.

Developed by the Army in 2008, the course includes aerobics classes, pool sessions and classroom studies on the physiology of pregnant women. The NCOs learn special exercises for pregnant women, who shouldn’t push themselves too hard or participate in high-impact activities such as snowboarding, bungee jumping or horse riding, York said.

During the training, each NCO must wear the pregnancy simulator for at least an hour. (Stars and Stripes)

Snowboarding, bungee jumping or horse riding?? Pregnancy simulations?? If this is the sort of thing that now goes on in the ranks, I shudder to think of the kinds of empathy exercises soon to be mandated by the liberal lunatics in charge in order to accommodate the gay blades now free to practice the preferences that only a few short months ago would have earned them a rapid discharge, pardon the expression.

Today’s Army.  Be all you can be—and less.

  3. What the hell is this about ? How is this preparing our troops to protect America against its enimies? Are we planning to send our pregnant women soldiers into combat? This is insane!

    Who the hell is this ‘Jana York’ ?
    Does it hold some rank in the Army ?
    This doesn’t surprise me however, since the gays were allowed to come out of their lockers.
    What the hell happened to the Generals that supposedly run the outfit ?
    What happens to the ‘enlisted leaders all over the world’ who refuse to participate in this garbage ?
    FUBAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clean your head out with this Bob.
    Visit American Freedom on your side bar.
    Great tribute to veterans.

    Just posted on the very same topic, Bob. I couldn’t believe it!!

  8. Freedom, by the way says:

    How does bungee jumping prepare you for battle? This taxpayer wants to know!
    Are they making non-pregnant women soldiers don the empathy bellies, too?

    • AFVET says:

      You have a good point Freedom.
      The basic trainee female soldiers should be trained with bellies.
      That might sort out the ones that are just there to find a man, and believe me, that exists.
      There you go again Freedom, thinking outside of the box.
      Common sense is a precious gift, cherish it.

      When the Airborne jumps from a plane, they sure as hell aren’t attached to a rubber band that snaps ’em back in; mountain troops uses skis, not snowboards, and the Horse Cavalry went out of fashion sometime during 1918. So, yeah, I too fail to see the utility of such exercises.

    You don’t go to war with the Army you want, you go to war with the Army you have, provided they aren’t in sensitivity training, wearing fake tits, knocked up of hanging out at some Homo bar…

    Jesus F’ng Christ.. What the hell has happened to this nation?

    Obama promised transformation, we just didn’t realize how far they would go. It is going to take some very strong and dedicated men and women to remain in the armed forces until the mess is cleaned up after the eviction of the current ideological radicals who want to make a mockery of the military!
