25th Light infantry combat veteran James Jones wrote "From Here to Eternity" (FHTE) which became the 1953 Hollywood movie WARNING that the barracks, garrison lifestyle CORRUPTS Soldiers from being combat-ready and would CONTINUE "from here to ETERNITY"-unless we stop this bureaucratic racket. The American people still don't get it. All they see is Burt Lancaster & Deborah Kerr having sex-on-the-beach as the waves crash in on them; ie; THEY WANT THE CORRUPTION!

Narcissism Alert: Montgomery Clift character had "6-pack abs" and he doesn't know shit about infantry line-of-sight and gets himself killed by a night sentry (Military history: Stonewall Jackson)

No man worth his salt wouldn't want Kerr or Donna Reed wrapped around his naked body, but when this is your entire focus because you are DISTRACTED by a barracks (building) 7-5 routine filled with petty BS by bureaucrat tyrants YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE READY FOR WAR--be it Japanese Zero fighters strafing you from aircraft carriers or rebels blowing you up with command-detonated landmines today.

Go to any Army or marine "leg" infantry unit today and you will see scenes right out of this movie, NOTHING HAS CHANGED; in fact things are worse; we don't even have rifles in the barracks anymore; all is locked up. When we screw-up, we keyboard and mouse-click new names like "IEwhatevers" for the enemy weapons we should have already been ready for. The U.S. military blind-obedient, lemming lifestyle is all about wasting the day on vanity sports PT to get nice abs 'n chest, lawn and building care; all war is to these retards is looks PT, kinetic energy bullet marksmanship and battle drills--read Exum's awful book "This Man's Army" and compare to the Army of James Jones; both are FUBAR on a non-linear battlefield dominated by high explosives:

All want the duty day to end so they can go chase women and drink.

The American people need to wake up and realize they are funding a racket of "All Volunteer Force" (victim farce) time-servers who are incompetent and will get themselves killed and maimed AND NOT DEFEND THE NATION because they are bogged down with buildings/bodies (theirs and their chicks) instead of being focused on combat improvements each day.

Go to Hawaii today and our ships and planes are still clusterfucked in rows asking for an enemy sneak attack to wipe them out because the naval and air forces are living the exotic high life, too: watch the 1965 movie "In Harm's Way" to see a naval version of FHTE. Read Carlton Meyers' warnings in http://www.g2mil.com

FHTE has a message to all the lovely women groupies that surround U.S. military bases; YOU WILL BECOME A VICTIM, TOO if you uncritically drool over your man in dress uniform and don't wake-up to the disconnect between garrison corruption and combat readiness. Your man could be a LIVING hero instead of a dead one if you keep your bra on and ask him to show some combat preparation due diligence; there are a host of Field Expedient (FX) improvements that the Soldier at his own level can do;

Jones in FHTE shows how one man takes matters in his own hands to rid the Army of a sadist. The initiative is good but find some sound regulations instead of a knife. Jones' later book/movie "Thin Red Line" shows how the Japanese had superior field craft and how it caused needless casualties until draftee professionals had to stand up and take-charge at the cost of post-war career prospects to overcome the WW1 frontal assault mentalities of lifer bureaucrats in order to win WW2; this isn't happening today because nearly EVERYONE is a "volunteer" lifer junior bureaucrat.

Some may say American politicians want our Soldiers to not think and blindly follow their orders so they can be easily manipulated into war as FDR moved the fleet from San Diego to Pearl Harbor as "bait" to get the Japs to attack and force Germany to declare war on us so we'd go after Germany before she got the nuclear bomb--which we did in the nick of time:

However, a COMPETENT U.S. military would have been dispersed, camouflaged and weapons loaded on December 7; scout seaplane patrols

would have detected the Jap carriers and at least sunk some along with half their attacking planes by at least an on-duty air defense force on land. The national outrage would still have been there to finish the war, but we wouldn't have had our asses kicked because we were goofing off in vacationland. 3, 000 men didn't need to die that day due to FHTE crap.
