Discussion in 'US Army Special Operations' started by goon175, May 16, 2012.
In 1995, I was at Fox Hollow Elementary School in 4th grade.
milk breathed whelp. ;)
I was at Star Fleet Command then. Working for Harley.
Combine my personal observations and conclusions above and I think you can begin to see my view of this topic clearly. I just don't see this working out well for anyone. But hey what the heck the ride should be fun... I'm retired now so the show should be good from my seat.[/quote]
Sir agree with everything you have covered. I would like to add that this has been tested by the us (under President Clinton during 1990s), United Kingdom, Canada, and Israel have all tried this with the same results. It is therefore very frustrating to watch. I used to command the LRS Company here in Georgia. A lot of my guys are RIs at PRC. Needless to say their livid right now.
Not kidding and please don't!
Man, I feel really old right now...
Me also bro. Me also.
I stopped by the PX at Hunter Ligot on my way home today from Northern California. I picked up a few things including Army times 26 May 2012, page 18; "March Toward Infantry, Odierno expects plan for women in combat arms by Fall". Article by Michelle Tan. Here we go, awesomeness, the PC pukes have stepped up the game and the party line speak is being distributed. This has to happen before the election exactly as I predicted before in my earlier post. This is going to be great for females voters. I just can't wait to see these standards for the road march, time distance and weight. How fucking predictable, Obama strong! The link is the only reference I could find close. Well, well little Suzy get some! Well kinda; no longer is it "Light-fighter Hoorah!" it's now "fighter light, whahoooo!"...
CNS News.com) - The U.S. Army officially moved more than 200 women closer to direct ground combat this week, and that's just the beginning of the "new opportunities" that await women in the U.S. military, Army Gen. Raymond Odierno said. He indicated that Army Ranger training also may open to women. "As many of you know, earlier this week, more than 200 women began reporting to the maneuver battalions in nine of our brigade combat teams," Odierno told a Defense Department briefing on Wednesday.
Look here, what amazing timing; "Odierno said he expects final recommendations on the policy changes to come in November." why November I wonder...
New questions on the RTB in-processing worksheet-
The Hungry Lizard has a PX? All I ever saw were the stinking woods.
Adjacent the movie theater and a block from the bowling alley and gas station.
So kinda in line with this thread... I keep getting a request to fill out a survey on what I think about women in combat arms. I bummed because I don't have access to a gov't computer to fill it out right now...
they must have really lowered the standards... ;)
Not yet, they won't call it lowering the standards. It will be referred to as gender neutral and performance skill based evaluation. This will level the playing field for individuals with reduced upper body strength and smaller stature. It will be roundly touted and supported by the Commander(s) and hailed as progressive evolution of the force. This will increasing our diversity making us a more balanced and professional force for the future battle space. It will also better mirror our national morals and beliefs as inclusive. Everyone will be issued their opinion and the mantra enforced. Now move out and make it happen NCOs!
Everyone happy? Good! Now Drive on, continue to march!
Isn't that how every shit sandwich gets eaten?
Right you are brother!
As a side bar; More news of General Odierno, from the Onion...
That rant by Mr. Duff was a bit hard to follow.
Isn't this the way we have always done it? As an officer I swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign AND domestic. Sometimes there are things that the local sheriff's office just can't handle. In the past I think that the military was called in unnecessarily, but I think it's a bit naive to think that in today's time that there aren't some things that have to be handled by the military.
Nobody ever heard of him? We're talking about Abu Yahya al-Libi, right? Yeah I've heard of him, and we've even discussed him here on the site. When I was in a task force overseas, we were regularly looking for the guy. In fact we thought we killed him twice. He was very good at what he did, and he was a very dangerous guy. Trust me, he existed.
I don't think Odierno is as big of an idiot as that guy made him out to be, nor do I think he has done anything treasonous by any standard. Do I agree with everything he has done as CoS? No. Do I like the direction the Army is going under his command? No. But the claims by the author of that article were a bit out of line, if you ask me.
