WASHINGTON - Hollywood may have to tone down its portrayal of the military's screaming, in-your-face boot camp drill sergeant. In today's Army, shouting is out and a calmer approach to molding young minds is in, says the head of Pentagon personnel. The Army says it has reduced by nearly 7 percent the number of recruits who wash out in the first six to 12 months of military life. So it has come to this has it, and surely we have evidence of that in the British Army already. Reduced Criteria for BAFT as too many were failing, not at all influenced by the rapid demise of the school playing fields and competitive sport of course. SF no longer a grey mysterious world of "Special" soldiers, because that is not allowed in todays world, we are all equal and there is no such thing as failing..... Call me old fashioned, call me out of touch, but I really can not imagine an Army where we see the Drill Sergeant pleading with the rec's to Please Keep in Step, sounds too much like Sergeant Wilson & Dad's Army.
