Has there been a reply-all clusterfuck yet to really seal it off?

gently caress this battuta guy keeps following me. I will take a look at yours if you take a look at my military science fiction book which is finally done and back from the editor next month. Beta read swap as it were. And when it comes out I'll shout it out on my email list.

Also still in, still going to airborne school soon. Ack my old knees.

Idk how much it would really help, but running insoles in your boots may not be a bad idea.

We wouldíve run loving everywhere in our boots, but it was too hot and we just walked everywhere in formation instead :shepicide:

It was. Originally it had no alternate events either. This dragon has been defanged to just bleeding gums over the last two years.

It took a decade (or more!) to get to this point :laffo:

There is something darkly funny about this, but I can't put my finger on why.

"US Army Alaska to be reflagged as airborne division amid surge in troop suicides"

Someone committed suicide in the smoking booth outside of the mental health building when I was at Wainwright. Iím sure having AIRBORNE added to the unit name would have changed that outcome, somehow :rolleyes:

ďe4 mafiaĒ is the only time youíll ever hear it where itís not specifically derisive, I think. Although some people like to use that as a cudgel against e4s they think are lazy, they also do this at their own peril :v:

I saw this on Reddit and thought it was a joke.

Itís the army, things can be both a complete joke and serious at the same time :v:

My dad is retired, and I got to go see him last week. The dawning horror on his face when I told him the kinds of dumb poo poo that routinely happened and nobody ever gave a gently caress about was definitely something.

I guess heís been out for too long to remember, but I told him about the west pointers from my brigade that thought hazing and professional development were one and the same, and particularly the one that added enough racism to that poo poo-pile to drive a soldier to suicide.

Danny Chen :smith:

The true horror was when I told him that the NCOs got like 2 weeks in jail, and the LT involved got an admin discharge instead of a bad conduct from the resulting court martial. This is also around the time that someone tried to set one of my soldiers up to get murdered for testifying against those NCOS, so good times all around!

when someone is cleared to medevac and has their flight scheduled, itís completely fine and normal to try and put them on a helicopter back to their former FOB first with nothing more than winter PTs, right? No camo, no armor, no weapon, no NODs, literally just the clothes on his back. Completely normal.

e: my back is hurting today from an army injury, some dipshit thought rucksack running was a good PT move. I didnít sign up to crush one spinal disc and damage another in loving training in 2009.

Controversial opinion, likely to explode the heads of staff officers and SNCOs alike:

soldiers are people too
