Fuck. 41 years old with 3 kids and a wife. That one touches a nerve for sure.

Yesterday I was talking to my wife about life insurance because I'm driving 8 hours every weekend to get to and from a new contract. Fucking driving. In America. And I'm complaining it could be dangerous.

I hope his family gets taken care of like royalty.

Five years ago today, the Army's greatest blunder in outpost building and design,COP Keating,the battle that took 8 brave soldiers and a lot wounded. I believe it was 53 soldiers vs 3-4 hundred RACIST COMMENT DELETED. The COP was on the bottom of a mountain surround on 3 sides with hills. Great read and reporting by Jake Tapper....https://storify.com/jaketapper/the-batt ... cebook.com

Yesterday afternoon in Afghanistan the Marines turned Camp Leatherneck over to the Aghans.

Should we start a pool as to when the taliban take it?

So are you for that, or not? Your last two posts imply you're either contradicting yourself or just being a hypocrite....again.

We should get the fuck out dude. The last 5-6 years there has been shitty. It has turned into a politician run war. Micro managing it from DC, letting the lawyers telling the troops what they can or can't do.And we see what a PC war looks like.

At first glance, I thought holy shit, we actually agree there. But...in the end I disagree with the lawyer schpiel, the are rules of engagement and albeit somewhat unwritten rules of of war. You can ask John McCain all about it. It's not a PC war, its a war sponsored by and lobbied by War Inc. They want more bidness, so they beat the war drum, and the sheep of society come running over for fear of the eternal bogeyman.
But I do agree with the end game....it should have ended. But lawyers aren't the ones perpetuating it.

I was going to post an article but I wont about this black kid shot by a cop from the place where the riots, looting , burning shit have just happened. No one sent the kid to rob a store. 3 black official's from DC show up for the funeral.

A service member takes the ultimate one for his team and country that sent him there and no one from DC showed up.
