  1. Safe could be a relative term. Undoubtedly a lot of the issues would be eliminated by better MX practices. Same as it did with all the MI-8/17s we have operated by us vs the ones maintained an operated by *insert crap country here*. At one point we had US service members flying aggressor MiG-23s out in the desert as aggressors. If you read the accounts in “Red Eagles” that thing is an absolute death trap.

  2. Ricochet is the exact reason for sticking with 7.62 over .50 cal on door guns for the Army. The stand-off gains going to .50cal are minimal when you compare that guns likelihood to send rounds to the target, and then somewhere else at random. When you start throwing high cyclic rate like mini guns into it and the proximity of targets for an X landing (like dudes literally in the rotor disk) nobody wants to be the guy that shoots themselves/their wingman down.
  3. You can’t convince some loons, they’ve invested too much into it. Just look at the crazier people on JC. They’ve gone full Jade Helm, but because they got their crack from the recognized legitimate news outlets they can’t possibly be the crazy ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. After going to Angeles city, all my dad’s jokes about how guys assigned to the Philippines came back not right made a lot more sense.
  5. Oh I don’t know. Seemed the “This Is MAGA country” attack and selective outrage by his critics was pretty relatable to the President... Until it turned out to be complete BS and those same people are walking back the narrative. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My whole family are union service job blue color Ohio/Penn democrats. Any time I open my mouth with what or why those people would possibly vote for Trump or sit out an election because of the complete scizm in the dem party toward extreme left loonacy the coastal loons all dismiss it as “your family must be racist or something.” No they were promised a bill of goods with Obama and none of it happened. Because to those people the most important thing for our government to be concentrated on isn’t social progress and global warming. It’s sound foreign policy for their deployed sons/daughters, it’s not trying to hobble manufacturing jobs through ridiculous cafe restrictions or corporate taxes, and it’s not telling s bunch of nurses if they think there are limits on when abortion becomes wrong they are evil, and it’s not telling a guy who worked as both a cop and a military officer he can’t have a gun to defend his family because he might be a mass shooter waiting to happen. Until the democractic party learns that lesson I’m more than happy to watch them get their butts kicked in the greater electorate. But it’s just easier to hit the button that dismisses loss to a person like Trump as part of some secret army of racists so they probably won’t learn anything.
  7. Totally enjoying the screaming and cries from the DNC because a very electable centrist Democrat might run as an independent. The smartest thing democrats could do would be tell the fringe idiots like AOC to STFU and color and put Schultz on the ballot. He’d destroy any chance Trump had at holding an electoral advantage, but no they gotta find a way to win using the hardest method possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. High engine mounting etc won’t survive the requirement of something like “go to X Airbase.” We shouldn’t just stumble on to expeditionary capability, it should be designed in from the get go. We have had instances whereserious questions if C-130s could land on that field because to quote the airfield assessment guys, “sir, dirt would be safer than this asphalt.” We should ackoledge that most of our allies have spent little/nothing in infrastructure and this aircraft should be held to the same kinds of expeditionary requirement as the 130s that will be hauling their logistics tail into country.
  9. Up to a sum on income, same as other non mil. It’s like first 180k or something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So much Florida going on here.... https://www.leoaffairs.com/2-year-old-girl-surrenders-to-officers-in-florida-as-parents-are-arrested-for-armed-shoplifting/#utm_source=The%20Salty%20Soldier Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. America.... a country where an entire half of the population are “Islamaphobic racist white nationalists,” yet 1/3 of the people we resettle as refugees under Trump are scary brown people and Muslims. I watched a movie on VICE network last night. They literally have a commercial running that is nothing but a recorded phone conversation of an illegal alien pleading how she should just be allowed in. It is entirely a point of view within the progressive Democratic Party that the mere enforcement of borders is some sort of draconian holdover and we should just allow anybody in. Those people don’t accept the idea of checked immigration much less a wall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. This may surprise you, but the warrant community is full of prior enlisted. Infantry guys are like a weird mix of fraternity and homelessness. SOF guys are that amplified. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Oh no, I’m a total advocate of the Gold Bond video. Also I’m a huge fan of the medicated gold bond challenge for new guys. I (and a bunch of other “POGs”) just got a good laugh out of listening to a bunch of “super hooah” Rangers/long tabs nonchalantly talk about which lotion they liked to rub on themselves prior to a road march. Like wtf guys... this is up there with some other very weird stuff you should keep to yourselves. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. How stupid do I think the average person is?... Well there is this... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If we are going down this route... Diaper rash cream (the ones with a ton of zinc oxide) are apparently popular in some of the SOF circles for the inner thigh area and foot hotspots. That and body glide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
