My good friend and regular reader David alerted me to this nonsense out of our military. They are having Disability Awareness Month at Wright/Patterson AFB in September apparently, as well as force wide. To become fully aware of disabilities at the museum at W/P.....
Base volunteers will simulate various disabilities while touring the museum, enabling them to experience the challenges associated with both visible and hidden disabilities. The activity will end with a discussion of reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
Why can't they just install wheelchair ramps, bathroom stalls for the handicapped, and braille signage and be done with it? What other disabilities need to be accounted for? Besides, you cannot be disabled much, and be in the military.
All this focus by our military on sensitivity, diversity, and inclusiveness seems to preclude focus on killing those who would kill us.....and isn't that the primary mission, hell, only mission, of the military?
You can really tell that the politically correct class has risen to leadership roles in the military when the rules of combat engagement actually endanger our troops and every effort is made NOT to kill our enemies on the battlefield, soldiers are disarmed and defenseless when on base, and known threats, like the Islamic Ft. Hood shooter, are overlooked by superior officers because they are afraid of being labeled racist or anti-Islamic and having their careers terminated for it.
The US military isn't what it used to be, nor is the US any longer the country I used to be proud of.
