Combat Action Badge, Unisex Design
Army Chief of Staff, General Schoomaker, Peter, J., has unveiled the design of the new Combat Action Badge, according to Military.com. It is a bayonet and hand grenade on a wreath.
The real significance of this new badge is that women are now eligible, too.

If Google searches leading to this blog are any indication, the award is much anticipated.
“Warfare is still a human endeavor,” Schoomaker, Peter, J. reports. “Our intent is to recognize Soldiers who demonstrate and live the Warrior Ethos.”
And women are now “classified” as warriors as Schoomaker deliberately places women in combat after Congress went French on us and surrendered (without firing a shot) in a recent effort to address the issue.
President Bush has stated that women will not be placed in combat; Congress has stated that women will not be placed in combat.
Too bad. The Army says differently. And now, they get a Combat Action Badge to prove it.
(What’s next? We voted “non;” the Army elites say “oui.” The US Army thinks like the EU . . .)
The boiled frog strategy is rolling along . . . And they wonder why their male recruiting numbers are down??
Can’t tell if he’ll agree with me on the unisex issue, but Watch Your Six says “we don’t need no stinkin’ badges” for another reason. . .
And Outside the Beltway, Traffic Jam.
