Is the army turning into the RAF or what? How do guys come straight from civvie street into the army and get promoted to Full Screw without doing any sort of cadre or Jnr Managers course or CLM package for over a year? I agree that for retention purposes certain trades should be given a financial incentive, but to let some of these abominations in charge of private soldiers is scary. If these guys go to Iraq, Private soldiers will be looking up to these guys for support and advice, even tho the Screw only has the same basic soldiering knowledge taught in basic trg as the Private! Am i the onlyone that thinks this is wrong and totally irresponsible?
