Military Conscription: Issues For Australia Analysis of the manpower shortages facing the australian military and the potential use of conscription to make up the shortfall. http://www.aph.gov.au/library/pubs/cib/1999-2000/2000cib07.htm
Extractions: 12 October 1999 Contents Major Issues Introduction The Size of the Defence Force and Army How Can Conscription be Introduced? ... Appendix: Personnel Costs Major Issues The need to deploy a substantial force to East Timor has placed unanticipated stresses on the Australian Regular Army. It has become clear that rotating the troops sent to Timor is going to be difficult for an Army of less than 24 000 Regulars, as Australia's is today. This difficulty has led some to call for the introduction of compulsory military service. Conscription is certainly a quick means of raising large numbers of troops. However, the need for training means that it would not deliver personnel fast enough to solve the Timor rotation problem. Historically Australia has been able to maintain an Army significantly larger than the present force by means of voluntary enlistment. In the eighties the Regular Army was almost 8000 stronger than it is now and conscription was not required. Universal conscription of, e.g., all 18 year old males is both prohibitively expensive (salary costs alone in that case are about $2.8 billion per annum) and delivers too many personnel-if two years service is required, then such a scheme would increase the Regular Army by almost 100 000 personnel. This would seriously unbalance the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

Extractions: Aviat Space Environ Med 1998; 69:468-73 Background: Several studies have highlighted the problem of back pain among helicopter pilots, but few have controlled for potential confounding factors in their analyses, or sought to examine the effects of back pain on operational readiness and flying performance. There have been no previous studies of the prevalence of back pain among Australian military pilots. Methods: The prevalence, risk factors, and consequences of low back pain were assessed in a cross-sectional survey of 200 Australian military helicopter pilots by self-completion questionnaire. Results: Responses were received from 131 (66%) of available pilots. The overall prevalence of reported back pain was 64% (95% CI 56%-72%), with a further 28% of pilots describing back discomfort while flying. More than half the pilots (55%) indicated that back pain had interfered with their concentration while flying, with 16% reporting that they had hurried flying missions because of pain. A minority of pilots (7%) had refused to fly because of back problems. After adjusting for age, education, BMI, posture and numbers of hours flown, multiple logistic regression modeling indicated that a prior history of back injury was the most significant predictor of back pain among rotary wing pilots (OR 2.63, 95% CI 1.11-6.23). Conclusions: We conclude that the prevalence of back pain in Australian military helicopter pilots is unacceptably high and may be limiting operational readiness, pilot performance, flying safety, and pilot health. Urgent attention needs to be given to improved ergonomic design in aircraft, and both back pain prevention and back injury rehabilitation programs.
Extractions: Subscriptions By Michael Richardson International Herald Tribune MELBOURNE - The Australian armed forces are basking in plaudits for their professional conduct and leadership of the recently concluded multinational military mission to restore order in East Timor. But officials and analysts say that the euphoria masks a looming crisis in the Australian military budget because the cost of acquiring advanced weapons and equipment far exceeds the money allocated by the government to pay for them. ''Unless we can plan for real increases in the defense budget over the next decade, Australia will be unable to afford a modern defense force,'' said Paul Dibb, a former senior official in the Defense Department who now heads the Strategic and Defense Studies Center at the Australian National University in Canberra. Without such increases, he added, Australia will ''no longer be a power with real military clout'' in the Asia-Pacific region.

Archives Tuesday February 6, 2001 AZ Student Media Australian military stops work for lectures on bullying By The Associated Press SYDNEY, Australia - In an unprecedented crackdown on bullying and beatings within the ranks, Australia's military stopped work yesterday to give soldiers and sailors a talk on respect and being nice. About 50,000 Australian military personnel around the country and on warships overseas attended a two-hour lecture warning against intimidation and harassment. All normal military activity was canceled. The crackdown comes after an inquiry into brutality in the military, including beatings and humiliation. Eleven soldiers are facing charges in connection with alleged bullying. The Australian Defense Association, a private group that campaigns for a strong military, said the crackdown would damage military morale. "Very often in the mind of the self-styled victim, what will be fairly robust behavior as part of the toughening up process ... will be called (bullying)," the association's executive director, Michael O'Connor, told The Associated Press In Sydney, some 600 sailors were shown a video of colleagues being beaten during a "crossing the line" ceremony to initiate those who were sailing across the equator for the first time.

Extractions: When I went through training in the navy, it was kinda tough. Over 3 months for basic training, then seamanship school, then over three months branch training, then NBCD training, and a few other things... Finally I was posted directly to a ship. During basic, we weren't allowed to walk unless it was marching in form, under instruction. If not marching, we were to be running, studying, doing push-ups or such, or in classes. We were NOT allowed to walk. By the time I finished basic, I could hike all day with a full pack, water bottle, and 8-pound rifle and extra ammo. I ended up quite fit, able to endure a lot. I could shoot quite well, I could fight a bit, and so on. A few years after I went through it all, the politically correct idiots stuck there noses into things, and it all changed. First off they decided people were allowed to walk, and the instructors weren't allowed to shout and be mean any more. The little kiddies in basic got all upset when people yelled at them. Awww, how sad. Now, on Saturday night I saw my cousin, who joined the navy when I did and went through the same training. My cousin has just joined the military again, this time in the army. He's now completed all his training and is a black beret recon scout. He was quite happy to tell me how disgustingly easy training is now. Basic is only six weeks. The bureaucratic number-crunchers decided people who were going to end up in stores or in the kitchens didn't need all the rough training, so basic is now only to get people familiar with the service. You do your heavy training in your branch school. Anyway, so it's 6 weeks. And they don't have to run everywhere, they can walk. The instructors have to be nice and "supportive". People don't even have to do PT (physical training) sessions. Most firearms practice is now in a big simulation hall, like a holodeck; you just have to qualify out on the range.
