Re: “It's time to 'correct' military hazing

The activists won't be happy until they get a head on a pike. Corrective training is punishment, or at least it has been throughout my eight years in the Army. Punishment is meant to be painful, thus if it is painful the Soldier won't repeat the same mistake. I remember getting smoked for hours and having to dig a fighting position because I lost my ID Tags. The experience made me tighten my shot group and become a better Soldier. Respect to men like SGT Holcomb that don't let the emphasis on 'kinder and gentler' take away from the rough, realistic training that combat troops need.
