Army drug raid

The ADF has a very strict re­cruit­ing process that re­quires crim­i­nal his­tory checks and a num­ber of in­ter­views to as­sess char­ac­ter. Cur­rently, the re­cruit­ing tar­gets for most Army and Air Force jobs are very low mak­ing it ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive even for the most ba­sic of ri­fle­man ( in­fantry) po­si­tions. To say that the ADF is an ‘‘ easy" op­tion for school leavers is a grossly un­der-re­searched state­ment. The ADF is a mi­cro­cosm of the greater com­mu­nity and will al­ways have a few bad el­e­ments, as with any em­ployer. These sol­diers will be pun­ished and most likely dis­charged for their ac­tions and should not be taken to rep­re­sent the other sol­diers, sailors and air­men of the ADF. Posted by: Stu­art

STEROIDS

im­prove mus­cu­lar fit­ness and over time heighten ag­gres­sive ten­dan­cies and we won­der why the ADF doesn’t care. Of course they are not good for the long term fu­ture of the in­di­vid­ual. Again why would the ADF care. Their his­tory of treat­ment of exnavy and Viet­nam vet­er­ans speaks for it­self. No con­science. Posted by: David Green of Vic­to­ria ALL this hoohah about steroids . . . re­ally? Find some­thing bet­ter to whinge about be­cause steroid use isn’t hurt­ing any­one if used prop­erly ( do some * real* re­search be­fore re­tort­ing please) Posted by: Shane-o of Aus­tralia
