Diversity Thursday

We know the Diversity Bullies can be doctrinaire ... just like their Commissariat predecessors.

Did you ever think though that - yes, gird your loins - Embracing Diversity would become Joint Doctrine?

Well - as I have some of the best spies in the business - snack on this; I received a "Preliminary Coordination Program Directive (PC PD) Draft"

Please, go to Chapter 5.4.

If that is required for Spiritual Fitness .... good googly moogly. This Evangelical is not impressed.



Subject: Draft Program Directive (PD) for Joint Test Publication 3-XX, Total Force Fitness

1) Purpose. This memorandum provides the chapter outline, milestones, and guidance for the development of JTP, 3-XX, Total Force Fitness. The Director for Operational Plans and Joint Force Development (J-7) is the lead agent (LA) and the Joint Staff Doctrine Sponsor (JSDS); and is responsible for the development of the JTP.

2) Background. The JS J-7 Joint Education and Doctrine Division proposed the development of a joint publication on total force fitness and presented the proposal for discussion and decision at the 46th Joint Doctrine Planning Conference (JDPC). The US Joint Forces Command Joint Warfighting Center Doctrine and Education Group conducted a front end analysis that was also presented to the JDPC. The JDPC recommended that the Joint Doctrine Development Community develop a joint test publication on the total force fitness to allow current information on the subject matter to mature during the development and evaluation of the test publication. JS J-7 approval of the minutes identified the JS J-7 as the LA and JSDS and authorized JDDC development of the joint test publication.
