As a former member of the CAF I am completely disgusted with what I am seeing. I was a Battle School Instructor back in the day. Battle School was just that- preparation for what is inevitable. I see members walking around with mullets, red and green hair, and scratchy beards. This is not the military I signed up for. That being said, anyone behind a .50 can still execute the mission if properly trained regardless of what they look like and I tell myself this daily so I don’t lose it. The concept behind short hair and no beards is operational- look it up. Also, Members are public figures and we should be presentable when in public. I know some of you younger Members will say I’m just a crusty old prick and that is what is wrong with the Military. To those I say fuck you. Strap on some Mark II’s and let’s go for a ruck march. Sort yourselves out.
