  • Stress Cards

    http://www.nationalguard.com/forums/...t=stress+cards

    Not to revive a dead horse but there has always been a debate on this topic that if it existed or not. Many thought it was an urban legend. I created the thread topic so if someone ever did a search, they will find some info on the topic.

    Well, I met a SSG today who was part of the in-processing Cadre at Fort Jackson and he confirmed that it did exists. He got there in March 2005 and saw its use from there to May that same year. He then said it was eliminated by the summer rush.

    Finally good hearing it from someone who witnessed it firsthand.

    Considering all the other changes and softening up the military has been doing, I wouldn't be surprised if they made a huge comeback. It's going to take a soldier or two getting smoked repeatedly, then sent home, then chaptered out of the military, then whining to his "activist blogger" mother, who will talk to the media/politicians, who will revive stress cards.

      Honestly im not sure what the fuss is about. If its just an info card then its not like it does anything when a DS is yelling at you or whatever..

        The stress card rumor has been around for a long time. Its my understanding that they were just cards that had information on how to handle stress. Just like the suicide cards they hand out now in reception.

        found this on the interwebz

            That never existed. Stress cards had info on people to talk to if you were sad.
