- Respect the warrior. Hang politicians and their elite-class masters who start needless warsChesty Puller was a legend.
His son's life tragic.
The TET offensive was a massive Vietnam defeat that really broke the back of the Vietcong but was portrayed by our even then fake media as a massive defeat for US forces.
What was also tragic was how democrats started the Vietnam war under a false flag attack but then later insisted Nixon stopped the massive bombing to "give peace a chance"

- The problem with fighting so that Jews can have a country of their own in a muslim hotbed, is that they won't just go there andThe 600 lb. JewSpammer strikes again. Hey Brian, how many matzoh balls can you fit up your ass at one time?
- Military payTime to borrow Roman ways.
"To this wage, a legionary on active campaign would hope to add the booty of war, from the bodies of their enemies and as plunder from enemy settlements. Slaves could also be claimed from the prisoners of war and divided amongst the legion for later selling, which would bring in a sizeable supplement to their regular pay.
All legionary soldiers would also receive a praemia on the completion of their term of service: a sizeable sum of money (3000 denarii from the time of Augustus) and/or a plot of good farmland (good land was in much demand); farmland given to veterans often helped in establishing control of the frontier regions and over rebellious provinces."
Perhaps Mexico/USA border lands Where equipped with military armament and the ability to call in artillery and air strikes those veterans will stop the ongoing invasion.
- Pentagon promotes 'Lean In' groups to boost women in leadership.Good god, now the military is going full retard on the 'equality' bullshit bandwagon.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter, keen to expand the number of women and minorities in military leadership, on Monday will endorse "Lean In" discussion groups sparked by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg's bestselling book, a senior defense official said.
Carter and Sandberg will meet at the Pentagon with 15 women from all ranks and military services who already lead Lean In groups, followed by a news conference, where Carter will promote creation of more such groups, at government facilities and even during working hours.
- Marines, corpsman refuse to testify against sergeant at retrial in Iraqi killingGood for them. What good would it do to give them immunity from prosecution -- their lives are already ruined from their previous conviction. SEMPER FI!
The tactics taught us and the weapons given to us by ZOG can be turned against ZOG in the future. Remember what Tim McVeigh did.

"Author, and First Lieutenant, USMC (retired). He won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for his autobiography, "Fortunate Son." His military awards include the Silver Star, the Purple Heart (2 awards), and the Navy Commendation Medal. Cause of death: suicide (by gunshot). One of the last victims of the Vietnam War. His father was the legendary Lieutenant General Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, the most decorated Marine in US History.
Growing up in a military family, it was only natural that he would become a lieutenant in the US Marine Corps. In 1968, he was assigned as a platoon leader in the I Corps Area of South Vietnam, during the height of the Vietnam War. On 11 October 1968, he stepped on a 155mm artillery shell that the enemy had rigged up as a land mine. The resulting explosion literally cut him in half, blowing off both of his legs, most of his buttocks, part of his stomach and intestines, and one hand. For several months he was near death, yet he survived due to his iron will.
Upon his return to the US and after extensive surgery, he was retired on 100 percent disability from the Marine Corps. He obtained a law degree from the College of William and Mary, and began to oppose the Vietnam War, joining several anti-war groups, and ran for Congress from eastern Virginia on an anti-war platform, although he was defeated. For many years, he worked as a lawyer at the Pentagon. But the political turmoil of the Vietnam War, which literally tore the country apart, also played heavily on him, and he became severely despondent, becoming a heavy drinker and addicted to painkillers. By the late 1970s, he was addicted to both alcohol and painkillers.

The needs of the Army and the quality of the recruits it is acquiring have changed, so the Army is adapting. One of the many changes coming to Army Basic Training (BCT) is the removal of grenade qualification from basic training, which could happen as early as this summer.
The Army says this training takes too long and the time could be used for more needed training.
Commanders have complained about receiving undisciplined and "sloppy" appearing soldiers to their units after BCT. So the Army has decided to dedicate more time for recruits to become physically fit and develop discipline by spending more time on drill and ceremony, inspections, and learning military history.
"What we have found is it is taking far, far too much time. It's taking three to four times as much time ... just to qualify folks on the hand grenade course than we had designated so what is happening is it is taking away from other aspects of training," Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost, commanding general of the U.S. Army Center of Initial Military Training, told defense reporters on Friday.

The US has been quietly amassing firepower in the Pacific during a lull in tensions with North Korea, but recent developments on an under-the-radar nuclear weapon suggest preparation for a potential tactical nuclear strike.
The US recently sent B-2 stealth bombers to Guam, where they joined B-1 and B-52s, the other bombers in the US's fleet.
While the B-2 and B-52 are known as the air leg of the US's nuclear triad, as they carry nuclear-capable air-launched cruise missiles, a smaller nuclear weapon that has undergone some upgrades may lend itself to a strike on North Korea.
- Have a look at Russia's latest Spy Ship the 'Yantar' - It can tap into undersea cables from the surface even Fibre Optic (photosPosted 01/06/2018 01:28 PM
The Russian Navy's Project 22010 mini-sub host ship Yantar is known for loitering near undersea internet cables (known as Submarine communications Cables - SCC). Yantar is operated by Russia's secretive Main Directorate of Underwater Research (GUGI) who operate many of Russia's special mission (spy) submarines.
Yantar (actually Cruys) was launched in 2014 and joined the Russian Navy in 2015. It is described variously as a 'Special Purpose Ship' and an 'Oceanographic vessel' which is a euphemism for a spy ship. She can host two deep submergence submarines for undersea engineering missions. These missions are thought to include cable cutting, laying of taps on undersea cables, removing other countries' taps ('delousing') and related intelligence missions. She may also perform other special missions such as recovery of sensitive equipment from crashed aircraft or test missiles.

A U.S. service member was killed in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, the military said, without giving details of his identity or the circumstances of his death, which occurred as American forces have stepped up operations against the Taliban.
"Despite this tragic event, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the Afghan people and to support them in our mutual fight against terrorism," Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said in the statement.

Navy crews at fault in fatal collisions, investigations find
The report reveals that both collisions came after critical failures of officers and sailors on the bridge and raises troubling questions about the basic proficiency of the Japan-based 7th Fleet and the surface Navy as a whole.
In both incidents, sailors on the bridge failed to sound a ship-wide alarm notifying the crew of danger, which is a standard Navy procedure.
