Postcards from Tradocia

Intellegence and stupitidy

As I’ve written before, Army writing style only asks that one’s prose be “generally free of errors.” However, there are some situations where one would think that a little closer attention to detail would be warranted. I discovered both of the examples below on the same day, within minutes of each other.

Exhibit A. This is a real slide from a real presentation made by a real battle command training center sent to real soldiers. The irony is simply murderous. This presentation was sent to me and this was the first slide. I fell out of my chair when I saw it.

Exhibit B. This is a real shipping label from real maps really sent from NIMA. That’s the National Intelligence Mapping Agency, boys and girls. I guess military intelligence is an oxymoron, after all. This label was on a package of maps one of my cohorts got in the mail.
