It's that little country in the middle of nowhere surrounded by Iran and "Stans" ......
Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. I wonder who makes up these names....... :lol:

Re: "Here and there with the 31st Infantry" 1921

I never finished college but I did take a World History class...... at 8am. Obviously being hung over most days was only one reason I didn't finish college. Two other major reasons were women and car racing...... But at least I had my priorities straight...... :mrgreen: And that boys and girls is ho...

Re: This just in on the COVID-19 front

I got the air guns in both arms in basic, and was a little lightheaded by the time I got to the end of the line.
Luckily, they let us sit down outside in the shade for a while, as we all were pretty pale....... :roll:

Heat wave in the PNW.

We are literally having a heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest, on tv they are calling it a heat dome. Not unusual to be in the 80s in the summer here, but not the normal. Right now my thermometer says 109° on my deck. I have 3 outdoor ones and the other 2 say 108° and 106°. We have broken high t...

Re: Another story in "Woke" America involving monuments and bodies too.

Seems like some will never give up trying to change history, actually, they are trying to change
how we remember history. Maybe if they change enough things, it will be like it never happened........ right? ...... :roll:
Happy Juneteenth, or whatever the fuck it is, to all of you...... :lol:

Re: Barbara White has died of the Covid

Obviously I have too much time on my hands and spend some of it on my computer looking things up...... :roll:

I know how hard it is to lose a spouse, but to be that sick and the loss...... well, that's just hard to imagine.
Wish him well and a speedy recovery.

Re: Lt. Morgan Weed KIA HS video project

Have looked into Morgan Weed more than the others, I guess just because he was in the same unit. He was 3 years older th...

Re: The political trial

They acquitted Trump today. With that out of the way, hopefully the country can move on to taking care of important affairs. Even though he probably deserved some type of punishment for his actions, we all knew it was never going to happen. Time to take care of more important things, he is history. .

Re: And if anybody still loves Trump

I voted for him and was with him in the early days, but as time went on, that changed. And had high hopes for him until it all turned to shit. Yes, I do feel betrayed, disappointed and embarrassed in all this. He just needs to shut up and quietly go away. It is time to move on...... Although I do fe...

Re: So how does an air assault badge strike you?

There was no CAB in Nam, it didn't start until Sept 2001 and not retroactive for wars before that. Not sure why they would even include that? Looks like not graduating from an Infantry school or course would keep you from getting one, Robert. This is obviously only aimed at Infantry MOS. "AND -...

He left as BN Commander just a few weeks before I got to the 6/31st, so

Re: The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

Seems like it would be tough to draw the line on Agent Orange deaths or natural deaths.
I'm sure many that died from what is considered A.O. related would have died from those
things anyway. So I guess that's not the point.
But hey, they served with us so they deserve some honors anyway.
