So, the other day I was talking with a noncommissioned officer within my organization. We were having an interesting discussion about different issues facing the Army right now, when he made the somewhat alarming remark that he thinks multiculturalism is destroying this country.
As the author points out, that sort of comment, while often heard nowadays, demonstrates an alarming ignorance of American history.
(Meantime, the Army booted a brigade commander at Fort Bliss — and not just any brigade, but the 1st Bde of the 1st Armored Division. Interesting that it seems to have been announced — and pinned on SH/EO. Meantime, an Army Reserve brigadier got put on ice. Maybe the Army is following the Navy’s example and being more open about these removals.)
