    Pentagon to service members: Deploy or else!

    Over 10% are not deployable.

    The Pentagon on Wednesday announced a new “deploy or be removed” policy that could affect up to nearly 300,000 service members who have been non-deployable for the past 12 months.“This new policy is a 12-month deploy or be removed policy,” Robert Wilkie, the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, told the Senate Armed Services subcommittee on personnel and readiness on Wednesday.
    The move comes after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ memo last year stressing the need to ensure that “everyone who comes into the service and everyone who stays in the service is world-wide deployable.”

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    From the article.

    Another 20,000 are not deployable due to pregnancy

    In the late 1990's I was made non-deployable by reason of being a single parent with no one available to provide long-term care of my children should I need to "get underway today", at a moment's notice. After well over a decade of service, I was provided an honorable DD-214.

    Is that no longer the case?

    Thats interesting, My father was a single parent with my sister and myself in the early sixty's, when he was deployed we were shuttled between my grandfather and a few great aunts and uncles. I've never asked my dad if it was his choice or not.

    Too bad. Make them go, or get out and off the pension/pay/disability/medical gravy train. Give them the honorable or administrative, preferably, discharge. Just get them out.

The Pentagon/others keep allowing stupid policies, maybe they should suffer the consequences of their actions.

    I had a form I had to fill out saying who would care for the kids. I had no one who could, and thus I was shown the door.
