Battle Assembly?

What's in a name?
The Reserves have decided to change the traditional name for a weekend assembly from "drill" to "Battle Assembly"
I have news for the powers that be: If the chain of command doesn't plan interesting training and foster an agressive unit climate, it doesn't make any difference what you call the unit's little get-together... it'll still be a waste of the troops' time.
we'll see how well that whole name change thing catches on. As 1SG Ricky Stigall used to say: "You can't shine a turd."
