Re: Intro-- Ricky " Pretzel "

Any time is a good time to join the forum, but no matter, you are here now. Lots of good shit here. We have been lucky and had quite a few new members make it through the pipeline to become Regimental Medics. Lucky for you, my friend no longer teaches at the schoolhouse, so no extra-curricular Pt fo...

Re: After 100 Years, Are The Boy Scouts Still Relevant?

Absolutely, 100% the Boy Scouts of America are still relevant. I just recently stepped down as Scoutmaster of a Troop I ran for three years because my son is Cub Scouts now and I want to spent the time with him. In those three years, three of my Scouts made Eagle, and one did not before he aged out....

Re: "I just f**# shot myself!"

My question is this: using the train how you fight/fight how you train concept, would there ever [/u] be a time you would have to engage a target so close with that Luke Skywalker holster? I mean, I know I was just a soft-skill and all and never had to be a steely eyed killah like this fellow, but m...

Re: Intro: Doc_Dino

I got word back from the recruiter today my packet has been help up and is awaiting review due to the fact that the subject matter expert in my career field has been unavailable so I will likely have to tack a few more weeks on to my wait time. 7 weeks already im getting pretty restless, patience i...

Re: US Army testing new jungle boots

As I recall, Tough, the ONLY thing we liked about the MOLLE gear was the modular strap mounting set up. We only did a few days of patrols and felt that plastic framed shit was worthless.. Especially if you had to ditch it in a hurry making contact. It was far superior to the other shit they had us t...

Re: US Army testing new jungle boots

There was a surplus store just off of Victory Drive over by where the "Traffic Light" was. There, I lucked into an original, unissued VN era, green canvas jungle boot in my size. At the advice of the guy at the store (himself a VN vet) I took them to a boot maker, had them split the sole and take ou...

Re: Introduction-Jake

It's been a while since I've given you guys an update so here it is. I graduated basic February 20 and AIT started the 24. The EMT portion was pretty boring but the instructors make it alright. We're a couple weeks into whiskey phase which is a lot more fun. On my record PT test I scored a 314. Run...

Re: Intro - Allsvinn

Welcome here, friend! Your unit and countrymen certainly have a proud history that is the stuff of legend. I made mention of two in the "Badass of the week" thread; Birger Stromsheim and Max Manus. From what I have read, even the resistance played a huge part in WW2. My favorite story being one of a...

Re: Sitrep - Black2594

All skill level one tasks. Nothing hard about it because they will give you time to practice everything. If your roadmarch course is uphill/downhill, your best bet is to run on the down-hill portions. The land nav is easy as shit. If they let you do this in AIT, everyone would have one. Still, bette...

Re: Introduction- CON

Now you have a baseline run time. My fat, decrepit ass is about twice as slow. If you haven't run regularly before, you can expect some good improvement in you time initially as you work on it. At some point expect your time to plateau. To get past that will take concentrated effort and actual condi...

Re: Pre-RASP psychological tests

OK, for the record.. before anybody does anything rash.. When it comes down to it, Uncle Sugar, quite frankly, does not give a fuck what you may have smoked, eaten, snorted or otherwise put into your body before you get in. Unless it has changed, you can say you smoked weed up to six months before y...
