Millennial Recruits Lack Discipline [VIDEO]
It was already happening when I left active duty in 2012. Millennial recruits would arrive to the unit after basic and make themselves right at home. Treating NCO's like their friends, referring to them as "dude", "man", "bro", you name it.From Popular Military:
The United States Army thinks millennials may require extra supervision- and they are looking to their world-famous drill sergeants to provide it to them.“As we think about the future and readiness, how do we make our soldiers more fit, more disciplined and better trained?” Davenport said. “Soldiers always remember their drill sergeants. They measure themselves against them.”The push suggests that the current generation of millennials require the harder leadership and supervision of the drill sergeant, rather than the more even-keeled approach of the platoon sergeant.
