Army To Force Out 550 Majors As Purge Continues


majorHmmm…… Those forced out Majors and Captains could be a good pool for recruitment into OK.

This article comes from whitehousewhispers.com

(Washington)  About 550 Army majors, including some serving in Afghanistan, will soon be told they have to leave the service by next spring as part of a budget-driven downsizing of the service.

Gen. John Campbell, the vice chief of the Army, acknowledged Friday that telling troops in a war zone that they’re out of a job is a difficult task. But he said some of the soldiers could join the National Guard or the Army Reserve.

The decision to cut Army majors comes on the heels of a move to slash nearly 1,200 captains from the ranks. Army leaders were criticized at the time for giving 48 of them the bad news while they were deployed to Afghanistan.

The Army declined to say how many majors will be notified while they are at the battlefront.

“The ones that are deployed are certainly the hardest,” Campbell told reporters. “What we try to do there is, working through the chain of command, minimize the impact to that unit and then maximize the time to provide to that officer to come back and do the proper transition, to take care of himself or herself, and the family.”

Campbell said it’s difficult to avoid cutting deployed soldiers because of the timing schedules.

All the soldiers being forced to leave have probably already been given a heads-up that they were at risk of the job cut and will meet with a senior officer, according to the Army.

Those who are cut have nine months to leave the Army. And the soldiers who are deployed, including those in Afghanistan, will generally have about a month to move out of that job and go home to begin to transition out of the service.

    Is it possible they don’t need these officers anymore because they are being replaced with UN forces?

    That is crap.
    It is not just the person that is being fired it is also the individuals under that officer that now have to deal with the unknown of who is coming to replace? How long is that one going to be here for? Who is next? Am I next?

    It create instability in the ranks in an unstable environment.
    Trust will be a big issue, l believe, and trust is paramount when you have to believe what the guy is doing that is putting your life on the line.

    Anyone know anything about this?
    Don’t recall where I read this. Was very recent.

    Guess a Communist, anti American middle class, anti American, who is posing as president.
    “Would want to PURGE most of the loyal patriotic officers that love America.”
    Communist always purge the military. Study history.
    Then they slaughter their own people.
    Because any normal person will stand up AGAINST communism.
    But you got your “change”.

    The Intentional Destruction of the United States of America, by a TRAITOR president.

    This is crap. If you want to purge officers, at least give them a chance at the next selection board with a lower selection percentage at the next higher rank. For those that don’t know, only a certain percentage of officers are chosen for the next higher rank. For the Coast Guard at least (service I am in) if you are not selected for promotion, then you are “passed over” and you get one more chance to try to make the next rank next year. If you dont a second time then you are either essentially laid off or forecebily retired if you have over 20 in. Suddenly purging officers for reasons other than due to court martial or very very bad performance is a violation of contract for those who signed up as officers under comission.

    FYI, the selection rates are brutal in the Coast Guard and getting more brutal.
