Ultimately, the USA should be looking into creating an elite soldier program. That reduces the need for recruitment. If you need examples of what I mean, I’d suggest Halo, Warhammer 40k, Star Wars, and Rogue Trooper.
These elite units would makeup most of the infantry. While regular people are primarily in the Navy, Air Force, and Space Force. This is the future of warfare.
But until then the solution has been staring everyone in the face for years. What would a generation growing up on Apex Legends, and Call of Duty be good at? Piloting drones.
Develop infantry drones similar to what the Confederacy of Independent Systems had. Let the remote controlled drones do the fighting overseas. While the pilot is still on American soil.
No one is interested in getting mental illnesses or physical disabilities for Wall Street anymore.
This is the only way.
