Story time for all you silly people. It was day 4 or 5 and we were swinging west, leaving Basra for the Brits, racing up towards An Najaf. We were in a security halt when some bedouins came up and asked to see the "Allied Commander." Funny thing was this wrinkled old man spoke with a slight british ...

Dave, you've got te best site period. RAMD is horrible and DCP is juvenile. Which re-enforces my basic belief, there's no place like home.
Keep up the good work.

.....we changed the end drill to the show, gave the judges exactly what they were looking for, an end set of double arcs in the brass, and THEN we broke off and went into the pit... Another example of catering to the judges instead of catering to the ticket paying fans. This one is even an admissio...

Hey we passed a really big soccer stadium just northwest of Basra. I remember looking at it and automatically thinking wow that's about 20,000 concert side. :P Of course everyone will complain that the Div II&III corps can't afford it, that it's too hot (although no humidity and no rain....), the gu...

My unit is from Columbus, Ohio. Elliot I'm from a A Co. 1-118th Infantry (M), 218th Heavy Seperate Brigad...

Hey Travis, Hope that Fort Benning is treating you well, or at least that it isn't treating you badly. My brother was there for a while in the 90s...not his favorite place. Go Blue! Brian Fort Benning has been great. Sucked when we 1st got here, mass mobilizations going on, total controlled chaos. ...
