US Armed Forces and Joint Chief of Staff, I highly encourage you to tape this with our sitting JCS delivering the same speech. There were ones similar to it on AFN delivered by Admiral Mc Mullen when I was serving as a contractor, but the 'get out if you can't handle it' part needs to be there. Do it, now.
 
2013-06-14 11:22:30 PM  
needed to end it with a "harden the fark up"

well said.
 
2013-06-14 11:22:30 PM  
This. This is how every decent, self-respecting military and/or police officer and leader should be addressing any acts of wrong doing by their own. instead of stone-walling, or covering it up.

I'm not gay, but I think I'm in love.

And after you do this, fix the suicide issue!
 
2013-06-14 11:25:02 PM  
As an aside. If you have women, men, and the gay in the military, then why are there separate showers, bunkers, and quarters for different sexes?

Sometimes I wonder how the Australian army isn't the most highly trained force of badassery around. I mean, they may not have overtly hostile nabors...but mother nature is on constant attack with some abyssal nightmare mother nature dreamed up in her ferverish dreams.

FTFM. I was Admiral Mike Mullen, not Mc Mullen.

I'm an American going past 40 and right now, I want to head down to the recruiter's office and sign up for the Aussie Army.

I'm sure he said something great, but I I hear in that accent is "You call that a knife?".

You were Admiral Mike Mullen?

liquidpoo: And after you do this, fix the suicide issue!


When i was in the service most of that issue was produced by sources outside the military. That being said they need to stick to training people to recognize the symptoms of depression and make sure that seeking counseling doesn't have an adverse effect on someones career barring serious safety concerns brought up by the counselors and or chaplains.
 
2013-06-14 11:37:52 PM  
Too bad it's nearly impossible to say 'fark it, I quit'. Well, at least when I was in.
 
2013-06-14 11:38:54 PM  
God damn, that guy is cool.

Can we just hire him to be in charge of the US military?

We are. We just just bang on about it like others do. Our military record is pretty good and our troops, especially our SAS, have a higher rate of effectiveness than others. We're also better liked than other other English speaking allies.

/true story.

This is the speech I hope to hear every time wrongdoing is exposed. Especially the part about ignoring bad behaviour = condoning it.

Dear leaders: every time you stonewall or make excuses, I know that it's because you're not upset at the action, you're upset that someone got caught. Knock it off and own up to your shiat for once.
 
2013-06-14 11:44:47 PM  
This is how it should be in any organization.
 
2013-06-14 11:45:50 PM  
I like this guy, not a lot of ambiguity in him, a clean, clear message.

The USA could use a few like him in top leadership.

I would like to have this man's babies.

That is all.

buzzcut73: get out if you can't handle it


I'm outside and still don't know if I can come back inside yet.

/feel bad, and I'm not even in the ADF.
 
2013-06-14 11:49:01 PM  
What happens to those that get out of the army because they disagree? Just discharged (dishonorably?) not sure how things work over there. Seems to be a simple way to get out if you don't want to be there, just act like an asshole.
 
2013-06-14 11:50:38 PM  
Mathilda is a biatch
 
2013-06-14 11:51:37 PM

Call him up. Offer to write his biography.

I don't know how it works in the Australian army, but in the US you can just decline to sign your reenlistment papers. The US military will oblige you, especially if you are a senior NCO that has less than 20 years in if you decide you can't deal with not exposing the service to that kind of bad publicity for your next term...because as a bonus you don't get retirement.
 
2013-06-14 11:55:17 PM  
Very well articulated. "If that does not suit you, then get out"
 
2013-06-14 11:57:13 PM  
I just shiat my pants in fear and I'm not even in Australia.
 
2013-06-14 11:57:18 PM  

Dear Jerk: He does have that leadership vibe.


I think the secret is to blink at a rate 4 times slower than everyone else.
