Modern version of anti baby shaking training and awareness

http://archive.defense.gov/news/news....aspx?id=32830

I did not know that they had actual numbers justifying the awareness campaigns (that link states 10-20 per year).

Would it not be more cost effective to just fund one all encompassing 'Don't be a Dumbshit' campaign, and then use it for all libo briefs, EEO, and any and all sensitivity training?

I'm sure ARCOMs were awarded.

I'm sure one for faggots and trannies is in the works.

I knew, I just knew I should have not clicked on that link..

What a waste, and.......... I cannot even think of a term to define how stupid and a waste of money this is.

Well, someone(s) got a bullet point for creating this.

And the Retention NCO's wonder when I tell them no matter how much bonus money you throw at me, I am done after this hitch is over..

I read somewhere that the Army is doing away with some of the mandatory briefings/online courses such as TRiPs, accident avoidance and a couple of others. So they eliminate those but add this 'tard class.

I am not sure what I am more embarrassed about, the fact that the class was created and implemented, or that I clicked on it and read the article. Shame on me

On the plus side, this is $700m they can't spend working on the vaccine for the next super-pandemic. Or relief aid for any genetic bottleneck inducing meteor strike.

While ridiculous, at least it's only a $700K waste and not a 700M one.

Anyone completing this training should get a tab and a change in their beret color.

Shouldn't "her" be "it" in this environment? How dare they assume heterosexuality.

They are heterosexually challenged.

Though technically the close to $700 million was for all the trainings this group has done since 2009, to include alcohol and other trainings.

The Free Beacon has a shitty headline writer and apparently no editors:

Quote:
Domitrz's group—the Date Safe Project—has received numerous contracts for training from the Pentagon over the years, including contracts as high as $90,800 for alcohol education and training in 2016.

Since 2009, Domitrz and the Date Safe Project have received $697,627 from the Pentagon for training.
The headline states all the money was for this gay kiss training but the facts are different.

I was making the distinction that DD specified 700 million as opposed to the 700,000 mentioned in the article, regardless of time frame. I dont know if you're referencing 700M in training you have knowledge of outside of the article, but I dont see any reference to million anything in the article

Do young people really need it? I mean I was no soldier nor did I undergo any sort of date/kiss training yet I still knew what to do with the first girl that fell on my lap. And if someone has a tendency to go from zero to rape in 3 seconds or less, this training will IMHO not help them much.

Besides, we in Poland have a saying za mundurem panny sznurem which is hard to translate literally but means that girls always fall (and in great numbers) for men in uniform.

No, No. Octoberfest was right. I typed M instead of K.

Maybe I was thinking about how many should perish in the first wave of the gene-pool cleansing pandemic instead.
