This ain't your daddy's (or my) army any longer. Killing your enemy expeditiously and efficiently is just not PC.

Just the way it is.

So while the Army runs away the Marines will be fixing bayonets and pushing forward like always

Sorry, just had to throw some Marines vs. Army comments in there as I saw you were retired Army. I'm under 3 years from hitting my 20 in the Marine Corps
OOOrah! Sempre Fi Devil Dog!!

Happy Birthday to the Corp.

Merry Christmas Marine!!

At least the Marines still have some militarism to them. And YES, Doc, I WAS around during the Carter years. I am well aware of what is going on in the Army and thank God both of my sons are now out.

I was at the American Embassy as a Marine Security Guard in Tehran, Iran, a couple years before the embassy was allowed to be taken over.
