Really? I'm from the Boomer generation and I've never used that term and have never heard anyone my age use it.

Where do you live? And do you watch any TV at all?

You are talking about veterans, the topic was discussing recruiting, those that have never been in the military.

It amazes me how flipant people can be in disregarding any possible contributing reasons for poor recruiting, just because they do not like discussing those possibilities.

According to the CDC, 88% of the U.S. population ≥ 12 Years of Age have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. There are many reasons for poor military recruiting, but vaccine mandates are not in the top three.

I have never heard someone in person use the word "woke." No boomers, nobody. My question is why you feel a need to use that term?

Well, hell. I don't think I've ever heard anyone in person use the term, either. It's not something that comes up in my person-to-person conversations.

But that's not what you originally said.
