    They were having a General Court Martial, so a full bird JAG judge isn't terribly surprising considering on of the prime witnesses was also a full bird. Having testified in several general courts...

    I'm not certain how cross-commissioning works, however, the Marine Corps has a very different training pipeline for potential officers than does the Air Force. Going through NROTC can get you into...

    I voted last week. The polling location was very busy and we had to walk through the groups passing out candidate literature. Nothing new. One lady offered me some Biden propaganda and I politely...

    I did too. My favorite place to drink in Oceanside. Some interesting Old Salts hung out there.

    I think a lot of those women came out of the woodwork as soon as Trump became president because they are jealous he didn't marry them so they could be the First Lady.

    Just before I went to boot camp, I read an article that the Marines were "reducing stress" during Receiving Phase so recruits could be more relaxed while taking tests to determine their MOS.

    Well, I've got some bad news for the "banned from warfare" crowd. The US military has used tear gas in WWII against the Japanese and in Vietnam in Hue during Tet 68 (at least there). The...

    My #1 daughter went through AF basic with mixed training flights. She didn't like it. While males and females had separate quarters, there was a lack of a team feeling when they were all together...

    I agree with Dave. It is an interesting question and well worth thinking about. However, as Dave also said there is no precedent. I disagree with that. All we have to do is look to the Civil War. A...

    I would say your reasons for becoming a Marine are good ones. Differences between intel and infantry are like night and day. You pretty well summed them up, but intel tends to be a butt in a seat,...

    The dead idiot was in the Air Force for less than a full enlistment. They let him out early to take care of his girlfriend. I think he whined and cried until they just got rid of him. He was a...
