Re: Women In Combat Arms Roles Research Project

Thanks for coming back with your findings. It's nice to have some follow up.

Out of curiosity, how did your peers/ teacher react to your conclusions?

Re: RECONDO School Origins

I'm sure a fine, upstanding citizen such as Jerome Conners wouldn't dare to alter records and schedules to make himself look like he is a Stolen Valor recipient. I mean, that's something a poser would do, right Jerome Conners?

Re: RECONDO School Origins

I'm late to the party for the banned fuck bag, but it appears that he is Jerome Conners of the "Chinese Bandits" bull shit from a few years ago. Wonder if he has another book he's trying to pimp?

Re: Tunisian Army

OH58's were my favorite helicopter flying in support of us on the ground- I swear if the pilots flying them got in any closer to the action (or ground, or roof tops,etc.) the sounds of their massive brass balls dragging would have been overwhelming. There's nothing like seeing a Kiowa pilot leaning ...

Re: Texas ARNG at Chilean Mountain School

I spent time in a mountain course in Italy with a couple of instructors from there. They were assigned to the Italian course for a year to go through all the phases and bring back all the TTP'S they could apply to their country's military. Good group of dudes to work with and around. Rodrigo and Pab...

Re: U.S. Army Ranger Killed During Training

RIP Ranger. It seems there is an issue with the current parachutist items, based solely on the amount of deaths in the last few years. I hope it gets sorted out with out any more deaths. In this case, I wonder what caused the total malfunction- bad rigging, bad packing, a ruptured static line, or sh...

I didn't realize there was numbered Ranger Companies in Korea. I thought they were all lettered companies. Thanks for the history lesson Sir.

Re: Ranger Class 8-16

CSM Burns was a good guy to work with as a team then squad leader. He definitely cared and encouraged leadership at the lowest level. One of the first things he did was send out an alert for every team leader, section leader, squad leader, platoon sergeant, and 1sg to show up for first call at 0930 ...

Re: Any tips for weather?

Drink the water. Eat the MRE's when you can. Use the flavor packets to add to your water. If they still do the water resupply enroute to the OBJ from the patrol bases, drink your water until you're full then refill the canteens. DO NOT ask for things like gatorade while in the course. I won't tell y...

Re: Boots for my odd shaped duck feet

I always found the Oakley Desert assault boots to be wide in the toes and narrow in the heel. It's been a few years since I've bought a set though. As an alternative, have you considered getting a pair that fit your heel then soak the pair a few times and wear them dry each time? By soak, I mean lit...

Re: Bergdahl Charged With Desertion

I'm fairly sure what made the case unwinnable for traitor boy is him admitting what he did in several venues, but let's not let facts get in the way of a good sob story. I really hate most defense attorneys, even though I do understand they are a necessary evil for our adversarial legal system to fu...

Re: Bergdahl Charged With Desertion

At this point, I hope they continue to postpone the court martial until a new president is elected. Maybe then the families of the soldiers that were killed hunting his sorry ass down can get some justice and closure.

Re: World's oldest "jeep" isn't one

If jeep were to offer a version of the 75th anniversary edition for sale to the public, as a stripped down, no extra fluff, point and shoot utility vehicle, I think a lot of them would get sold. Too bad Jeep uses the H&K model of sales which is "buy our products because you suck and hate you".
