Debris of Crashed F-35 Found; Marines Pause Air Operations

This Woke Military sure is proving that Diversity Is Our Strength!!!

A debris field has been located by military officials amid their investigation of the F-35 jet that disappeared in South Carolina on Sunday.

Joint Base Charleston told Fox News Digital that the debris field was found in Williamsburg County, South Carolina. Officials did not confirm that the debris was from the missing aircraft.

A pilot ejected from the aircraft on Sunday afternoon after a "mishap." The jet was a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II that belonged to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort.

The pilot landed on the ground safely and was treated at a local medical center.

After announcing the discovery of the debris field on Monday evening, a Joint Base Charleston spokesperson announced that they are transferring command of the incident to the United States Marine Corps.

"Members of the community should avoid the area as the recovery team secures the debris field," a spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

"The mishap is currently under investigation, and we are unable to provide additional details to preserve the integrity of the investigative process," the statement added.

The situation has perplexed Americans, including South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace, who said she had a very uninformative briefing on the incident.

"One of the shortest meetings I've ever had, bc guess what, no one @usmc sent over to brief me and my staff had any answers," Mace wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Shocker."

Earlier on Monday, the Marine Corps announced that there would be a two-day pause in operations "to discuss aviation safety matters and best practices."

Relatedly: The Air Force has failed to meet its recruiting goals for the first time in 24 years.

The Air Force will, as expected, miss its active-duty recruiting goals for the first time since 1999, Secretary Frank Kendall said during a conference here Monday.

"We're almost to the end of the fiscal year, and the expectation is we're going to come in short about 10%," Kendall told Military.com during a media round table, adding that the service plans to address long-standing recruiting issues in an effort to improve next year. "I'm overall encouraged by where we are in recruiting, but we still have a lot of work."

The last time the Air Force did not reach 100% of its recruitment goal was 1999, according to the Air Force Recruiting Service. That was when Millenials -- who were born between 1981 and 1996 -- first began to reach the age of service. In 1979, the Air Force also missed its goals when Generation X began to become of age to serve, according to a 2002 research paper from Air University.

The current shortfall is the result of lingering effects from the COVID-19 pandemic, strong employment numbers, and cultural headwinds making it more difficult to convince Generation Z to join the ranks.

What do you think might account for the Marines dropping an F-35 out of the sky and the Air Force being unable to attract recruits?

Could it be that perhaps Transgender Diversity is not our strength?


"Currently, the active duty is projected to miss [its] goal by about 10%," Brown said.



The Air Force Recruiting Service has told Military.com in the past year that less than 10% of the young population is interested in serving in the first place -- 50% can't even name all the military service branches.

Which 10% of the population would you say is -- or was most interested in military service? Would you say that 10% tends to be male and traditionalist, by any chance?

OUT: The military will make you a real man

IN: The military will make you a fake woman
