Military service is a privilege, not a right. And the military has an obligation only to admit and retain soldiers who make it more effective at fighting wars.
I recently received a copy of the new ‘Tier Three Transgender Training’ materials that the U.S. Army is now using in mandatory training for all soldiers.
Conspicuously missing is significant attention to the country that bears a large share of the blame for the current crisis and could play a crucial role in the future: Pakistan.
