Virginia Military Institute Offers Coloring, Therapy Dogs, Yoga for Exam Prep

The disease is spreading. It isn’t just liberal arts–oriented colleges that encourage students to prepare for exams by reducing their stress with puppies and coloring books. Now flakey infantilization reaches even into military academies.

The oldest state-sponsored military college in the country is the Virginia Military Institute, founded in 1839. It offers something called Stress Busters:

“Stress Busters is held on Reading Day of each semester,” the school said. “This is an opportunity for cadets to unwind and relax before studying for finals. This event often includes stress reduction activities such as yoga, therapy dogs, coloring book stations, card/game stations, and grab-and-go snacks to take with you on your way to study!”

After coloring and frolicking with puppies, the cadets will be ready to ace their exams and then go on to become officers, at which point they are likely to utilize declaration of a safe space as defensive military strategy.

    OMG! Will there be an adult left in this country ANYWHERE in say 50 years???!!!

    Can’t wait to see the “FEILD COLORING BOOKS”!!

    Back in the day I went to a military prep school. The stress buster would either been taken as a joke or an insult. These boy-men are about to become officers. I hope they get a good E7 to sort them out if they actually become O1s.

    Just between you and me, the Muslims seem to relieve stress by going out and shooting their AK-47s into the air. As politically incorrect as that seems, it seems to work with them.

    If it doesn’t, I hear that they engage in something with goats….not quite sure what.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    No doubt the E7 that doesn’t cater to their hurt feelings will be chewed out by his female commanding officer.

    O1’s do not mess with the 1st Sgt., not more than once in my experience. I know, he said E7 which is SFC, generally a platoon Sgt rank, at least all of them I had were SFC. Who do you suppose has their back? Screw with the Top and you’ll be standing tall in the CO’s office. Of course, I’ve never had a lady CO, women aren’t scheduled to be in combat arms units until next year, might be different then. Not my problem, I EAS before then.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    You reap what you sow. Snowflakes are recruits, Affirmative Action appointees as officers, and pretty soon you have the kind of military that would make Obama proud.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    BTW, I never thought the Marines would allow women in combat, either.

  • 762×51

    Just who you’d want your son to follow into a hot LZ . . .

    I hope any of them who take advantage of the coloring books, etc., have that entered on their permanent service records. Too bad the old JOTC school isn’t still open, they’d love the monkey meat for the one or two days they lasted.

    Wondering just what George S. Pattan woul say to the administration as an allum of the institute.

    I find that shooting my firearms (in a legal manner) is an EXCELLENT stress reduction method. An hour on the range does wonders to reduce tension.

    …..and I wonder what Patton would REALLY say without a pansy President hovering over him….ordering him to apologize for slapping a coward.

    I voted for Trump, reluctantly, and am still 50/50 on how he will perform, but if his call to Taiwan’s President (an official FU to China) and picking retired Marine General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis as Sec. Defense is any indication, it’s going to be a SPECTACULAR 4 years for America!

    They haven’t yet and IF our soon to be CinC is what his followers claim he is, he can put a stop to it on Jan. 22nd, no congressional approval required.

    In 24 hours, tRump COULD undo approximately 85% of Obama’s “presidency”, IF he truly wants to. For example, he cannot disband the EPA without Congress, but he can redirect their energies. Take all those bureaucrats and fancy lawyers and send them out with a sandbox pail and shovel to collect soil and water samples from every county in all 50 states, see how many last the first week. The second week, they can all go back out and collect water samples from every sewer in the country. It gets “progressively” darker from there. They are so concerned about cow flatulence, we will need fresh fecal samples from every cow in the country, that is week three, you see where this is going.

    No one is going to follow those POG’s into a firefight. Besides, they would wet themselves the first time they heard that funny buzzing sound zip past their ear.

    50 years may be overly optimistic TED.

    Let’s clear that goat thing up for you.

    VMI Class of ’79 here. Back in the day we just went downtown and got drunk on Saturday nights. Worked every time.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Likely she looks like his girlfriend.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Yes, he could do that.

    Yah, I know, I was being WAY too generous..
