I would agree that today's soldiers are smarter on average and much more technology-savy. But, as I said before, they tend to have been brought up in overly protective environments and are less prepared for the stress involved in combat situations. I'm not putting them down because there's nothing harder than combat and no kind of normal upbringing could truely prepare one for combat.
But my biggest gripes are the "safety programs" that have been mandated in our educational system to protect kids from so-called bullies. Kids are taught that they shouldn't have to deal with their own problems; someone should handle problems for them. A scuffle at school means that the police need to get involved, and arrests are to be made. Even being called a name means that you should inform someone in authority to deal with it for you. I could go on, but I find that no one listens. We are trying to produce a generation of marshmallows, and then we expect them to perform in combat and be OK with it.
