I've seen these innovations first hand. As a medic in Iraq on my first tour we had Kwik Klot. On my third tour there were bandages treated with clotting agent. War is the fighting, shooting, stabbing, battle-axe wielding Mother of Invention.

Too late. There's no excuse for being asleep at the wheel while douchebags hijack your organization's reputation. The fact that they had to be alerted to this travesty means they don't know what the hell is going on. Most of the vets from these current conflicts have no intention of joining the VFW. Those of us who were considering it now aren't. Congratulations VFW and VFW PAC; you've hammered the final nail in.

Don't ever disparage drummers like that again. Ever. He looks like a bass player.

Less whining. More beer fetching and pie making. Also, you may want to be naked while attempting to accomplish the above 2 tasks. I don't know of any problem that can't be solved by naked beer fetching and pie making. I defy you to find one.

Something that will help me..I mean Soldiers..smuggle booze into theater without getting caught. You do that Mr. Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Cincinnati and you will have done something useful with your life. I'm sure there's grant money out there. Get crackin'.

"Something tells me that the political landscape of Topeka in the '80s and '90s was such that there wasn't a terribly active screening process in Democratic primaries in the races listed. I don't even know what ability either party has to screen anyone out anyway." Is that "something" the voices in your head? The same ones that tell you to burn things and stick crayons in your nose? Yeah, you should probably ignore those.

The douche is strong in this one. What's the matter, pluck? Somebody in the Coast Guard Auxillary kick your ass and steal your girlfriend or something?

Yes, and when David Duke starts attending funerals for fallen servicemen, you might have a point. You're the one trying to paint Phelps as a conservative. Your analogy sucked. As did your reply to the response to it.

Somebody in an earlier thread had the perfect solution to this: have servicemen check the box "Do you want your flag-draped encoffined remains put on public display by the MSM". Please select Yes or No. Problem solved.

Meh. His "point" about the service academies being similar to getting an education at junior colleges makes me think he spent his "research" time surfin' pron. This brilliant conclusion being drawn from the fact that most other universities have a higher percentage of Ph.D instructors. I'm a direct commission and a Mustang. We're older, wiser, smarter, more experienced and much better looking. That last point is undisputed. That being said, it would be considered universally stupid by any sane person to even contemplate closing the service academies. He's contemplated it, ergo he is stupid. Or possible insane. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.

Where've you been? Billy Joel's been a dick for years. This latest manifestation of dickery is so uninformed that it makes me laugh in a sad way. The "entertainment" industry chose failure for these wars and they're not going to get off-message regardless of the facts.

Great. Seven years of college and a major paper in the works to answer one of life's greatest philosophical questions, all down the drain. Now what am I supposed to do?

"It represents the expeditionary wing of Western Liberal Values, which are the last best hope for mankind." I now have a man-crush on you. Not in a let's-pick-out-curtains-together kind of way. More of a I'd-give-you-my-last-beer kind of way.

Arch, The Brits can't vote over there, either. Gordon Brown was chosen as Prime Minister, not elected.

Bill Delahunt's "joke" (if it was one) absolutely sickens me. But, considering the class of politician that has historically come from Massoftwoshits, surpises me not in the least. David Addington has done more to protect the citizens of the United States and understands the threat more than Delahunt does. Addington is serious about this, Delahunt makes a joke in poor taste. A liberal Democrat, go figure.

I'm going to hate myself for doing this, but I'll do it anyway. My infantry Guard unit got attached to an active duty MI BN. We were a LRS company. We captured and killed bad guys, out all the time, doing what we do. ARCOM's all around (a couple of BSM's). The active duty turd whose job it was to make sure our vehicles were lined up in order before we left the wire? Bronze Star, baby! Never left the fob. LOTS of stories just like that. Basically, if you're Guard or Reserve and attached to Active for the war, don't count on Big Army to take care of you. It won't happen.
