What the Army Just Did Has Allen West Terrified About Our Nation’s Safety

Many surprises arrived this couple of months, including those connected with the military.

The cases of Bowe Bergdahl, Bradley Manning and Lt. Spenser Rapone.

Recently, the people with mental health conditions received the opportunity to join the Army.

USA Today reported: “People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.”

The Army has a goal to recruit 80,000 soldiers through September 2018. Probably, this decision came up so that they can complete their goal. Last year’s goal was 69,000, so the Army approved the recruits who did badly on their ability tests and expanded the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and proposed to give bonuses worth of hundreds of millions of dollars.

As USA Today reported: “Expanding the waivers for mental health is possible in part because the Army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit, Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, an Army spokesman, said in a statement. The Army issued the ban on waivers in 2009 amid an epidemic of suicides among troops. ”

Col. Randy Taylor stated: “The decision was primarily due to the increased availability of medical records and other data which is now more readily available. These records allow Army officials to better document applicant medical histories.”

However, taking service members who have mental health conditions is a risky move. It will be a lot to put on those people to defend and risk everything for this country. The Army would be a tough part of their life and it can even make their medical condition even worse.

It shouldn’t be like that because there are a lot of young people out there who would be willing to join the Army and defend this country.

Hopefully, President Trump will fix this move, before it turns into a whole big mess.

    Was this approved under the “BO”??? Sounds like something he’d grin at doing – what a god awful move by the army – better to not meet the objective the subject the world to people with mental disabilities – isn’t there enough out there already?

    I do not think it is a good idea to have service members who have mental health problems. TOO RISKY! President Trump should look into this problem now before it gets worse..

    Unbelievable! Do ALL the nutbars come out of the woodwork when President Trump is out of Washington? He IS Commander in Chief and I do not believe “they” (whoever they are) will get away with this insanity. God have mercy on America. We have lost our way. Obummer spent his entire time in office trying to destroy our foundations and we are beginning to see some of the horrific results. Pray for our President!

    That needs to be changed. By letting these people in make it more dangerous for our own men and women in the Military. President Trump is the Commander in Chief of the military and he needs to change all this stuff ASAP! The military can’t just turning a blind eye to things that shouldn’t even be taking place – obviously huge liberals who have no morals or common sense.

    This would be a departure from how we have always done this before !!!! Normally we send our best and most intelligent to war and slaughter while we leave the misfits at home. Maybe this is why we have so many crazies in our society today !!!! Crazies such as antifarts, communist, new world order globalist and corrupt politicians most of whom have had deferments !!!!

    I wouldn’t want a nut case covering me in a battle, this is horrid news and I can only pray that the military changes this. Look at what Bergale did, we do not want more cowards in the Military.
