    3rd Group has gone from predominately French speakers, to Arabic, Pashto, Dari, and Farsi. Calling us out for having to use a Terp in Kyrgyzstan is a bit much.

    SBG sends.

    Not calling anyone out (we're DTA'd with you guys too and we only have two RU speakers) but rather voicing frustration with the entire idea of language proficency taking a back seat: 35 series included.

    I doubt anyone is still using horses. It was too much of a pain in the ass to house, feed, train, shoe ect... Alot of fun to patrol on horseback though.

    To follow up what JJ said- There are FOBs that still have them, but they are more of a legacy/novelty item at this point. I'm 98% sure no one has used them in the last couple years. They aren't what Europeans or Americans would think of as horses, either. By definition(and by height), they are just barely horses- and they would be very skinny and thin legged in western terms as ponies.

    Decided to post a few old school ones.
    I always admired the Vietnam vets:

    I thought those were Pandurs in the last picture and I was about to throw a hissy fit.
