A good reminder of why I'll never qualify for a job with a defense contractor  ;D

You know the ridicule that photo has gotten really bugs me.

We all know what's going on. They're rehearsing for a parade where they will have to wear service dress with their standard shoes and in order to get them used to marching in those heels they're rehearsing with them.

It's like when Brit guardsmen do their training and rehearsals in some form of work dress but still wear the parade bearskins in order to get used to them. Like this:

Personally while the media is trying to make a point about how the army treats women, all it really does is highlight how absolutely ignorant the press in general about soldiers lives.

$.02 🍻

Like Ginger Rogers said, she had to do the same dance routines as Fred Astaire. But, backwards and in high heels. :)

Not to mention the sergeant on the right who is out of step.

The sergeant is in step; everyone else is out of step.

Just ask him.
It was amazing how many times in 1983 Basic Training Pte Kuzmida was actually in step, and the rest of the platoon had to "Change Step. Our drill staff incessantly stated " 9 Platoon less Pte Kuzmida, change step" as a frequent enjoinder during our soirees around the drill square.
