New Army Policy Could Mean ‘Base Transfers’ If Soldiers Are Offended By Local Laws

OFFENDED? JUST CHANGE BASES – In a new jaw-dropping report from, the U.S. may soon allow soldiers of the U.S. Army to transfer to a different area if local laws offend their choice of gender.

Sex, religion, race, or pregnancy could also be valid reasons for a soldier feeling discriminated against and wanting to move to another base.

If approved by Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, the new policy called “compassionate reassignment” would “ostensibly sanction soldiers to declare that certain states are too racist, too homophobic, too sexist or otherwise discriminatory to be able to live there safely and comfortably,” reported.

This policy seems to have support from within by higher-ups, as these kinds of inclusivity efforts by the U.S. Army have been on the upward trend in recent years. Despite public backlash and poor recruiting numbers thanks to an increase in “wokeness.”

As the executive director of Minority Veterans of America, Lindsay Church, said: “Some states are becoming untenable to live in; there’s a rise in hate crimes and rise in LGBT discrimination.”

“In order to serve this country, people need to be able to do their job and know their families are safe. All of these states get billions for bases but barely tolerate a lot of the service members,” she added.

According to the communications director for Common Defense, Jacob Thomas: “[Troops] can’t be forced to live in places where they aren’t seen as fully human.”

If this new guidance is finalized, the current, somewhat vague rules behind what constitutes a reasonable reassignment request would be redefined. Which many anticipate will lead to a bigger spike in requests than ever before.

According to current Army regulations, legitimate requests for relocation are often reserved for soldiers going through family problems that are not able to be solved through “leave, correspondence, power of attorney, or help of family members or other parties.”

In other words, the threshold for relocation is pretty high. And is more regarded as a final option when all other solutions don’t work out. This new policy would redefine all of that.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Army changed its requirements – ultimately lowering the standards of the organization as a whole in the process.

For example, this past March the U.S. Army revealed its new fitness test called the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT), which boasts different scoring standards for men and women.

Sadly, as reported by, all this change did was prepare soldiers for combat less. It’s assumed that this new “compassionate reassignment” guidance will pose the same effect as the ACFT in the long run.

All in the name of diversity and inclusion.
