    These clowns are trying to pack in legislative provisions into a necessary bill that would, on their own, not have a snowball's chance in hell of passing.

    If the Republicans and/or Trump refuse...

    That is scary.

    I was at Futemna, Okinawa in late 1974. Some idiot decided to streak the WM's barracks. Unfortunately, he knocked on the non-rate's side first and he was able to streak through...

    BUT, concrats on getting some benefits out of the deal.

    Ramadan is not the best time to do that. The Haj is the best. Ramadan is mostly celebrated wherever a Muslim lives, but the Haj brings millions to Mecca, particularly to gather around the Kabbala....

    During Vietnam, the M60 machine gun was a fairly new weapon, meaning the guns in the field were recently manufactured. As time went on, the guns started wearing out. Towards the end of the M-60s...

    This has been done, in a way, in modern times. Back when every Westerner was getting kidnapped in Lebanon, the Soviets were notably left alone. However, one group decided to make the Soviets play too...

    The Dome of the Rock would have to be destroyed a little more surgically because it is located very close to Jewish and Christian holy places. Not to mention in the middle of Jerusalem. A team of...

    The original M16 definitely had some issues, but most of them were self-inflicted by DoD (specifically McNamara, et al). They insisted on using cheaper propellant that burned inefficiently and thus...

    I think it MIGHT replace the 240, but not the Ma Deuce. The caliber and round length prove that. The new round might hit harder than a 7.62, and perhaps allow it to fit in a few places where the Ma...

    irpat54,

    I don't think the Air Force would want any draftees either. They already have plenty of snowflakes, but the AF likes to pick their own.

    Draft

    I've been observing that ever since the US whacked that Iranian nutjob (so called general), that the snowflakes are in an absolute panic that they are on the verge of being drafted for WWIII.

    I can't really speak to what happened with 242. Too many years have gone by since my time in.

    I did serve in VMA-211, then an A-4E squadron. We were sent to Vietnam in May 1972 as a response to...

    My advice is if you want to be an officer, go for it first. Enlisted service ahead of officer service is not a big career boost. It doesn't hurt, but doesn't really help either. But becoming an...

    Have you guys been watching any videos from the Hong Kong protests? Many of the protesters carry umbrellas as they turn out to be pretty good at stopping less-lethal rounds fired by the cops. I also...

    I'll be doing basically the same as FO. Quietly observing the birthday and making some beef jerky.

    I haven't gone to a Ball since 1999 as I moved to Florida the next year. I had been going to the...

    My father (a WWII Marine) used to recite this poem periodically. I could never remember the words after "twas the bloodiest fight they'd seen." Thanks for posting this Greybeard.

    I worked out of the S-4 (logistics) shop in Vietnam with VMA-211. Our S-4 was a captain, an A-4 pilot, and a former Sgt in Amtracks. He was an attentive S-4, but depended a lot on his S-4 chief, a...

    Yeah, it is amazing, Russ. But then, back in our day, we didn't have to worry about drones from anybody. Just other nasty bits that fell out of the sky.

    I don't think starting a guy in an MOS as arduous as infantry can be, at 26, is a good idea. Perhaps 20. And allow lateral MOS swaps into infantry too.

    Higher pay for grunts is a good idea too....
