      Some people think they can outsmart me. Maybe. Maybe. I've yet to meet one that can outsmart boo-let.

      Did I ever tell you about my experiences at Ranger School?

      Yes, celebratory fire is this stupid.

      Sucks to get ambushed while training!

      I'm going out to check on places to get this tattooed on my left forearm (note, that's the shield arm). Either (come) with (your shield) or on it. (Words in parentheses are understood, not stated.)

      Translation and explanation.

      Later, I might follow it up with a Hoplon lambda shield on my left shoulder above it. Meanwhile, I need to find someone who can do the Greek script right and add an artist's touch to it.

      Further on, before deployment, St Michael will go on my right shoulder/bicep (my sword/spear arm). Something along these lines, but obviously personalized.

      PS. Amusement is sitting on the other side of the room with the remote, hitting the eject button each time Lex drops her Teen Titans DVD in the player. Then the TV kept mysteriously turning off. It took her a minute, but then she figured it out and attacked me.

      I think I just found the camera I'm buying for the upcoming Great American Roadtrip with HowardRoark and subsequent fun and sun in Iraq. The Olympus 850-SW is shock/water/freeze/dust-proof. Oh, and it takes the same xD memory as my other Olympus, which is nice. Maybe I should get it in hot pink, so if it walks off, I can kick the shit out of the first dude I see with a pink camera. My two complaints are that you can only shoot 10sec of video at 640x480, and Olympus, in their auctions on eBay, refuses to send to APO/FPO addresses. That APO/FPO shit pisses me off to the point where I don't want to give them my business, whether directly or through Circuit City. Anyone have other water/shock/dust proof compact cameras they recommend?

      Other items needed will include a water-resistant GPS. I'd hoped for something that could handle streets as well as off-road, but I haven't found much in my admittedly none-too-rigorous search. Anyone got ideas?

      Gotta find some sort of adaptor/bracket to bolt my highway pegs onto my tube-steel crash guards, because my jacked up knees can't handle being folded up for all day riding.

      Oh, I need a ram mount for the GPS and radar detector.

      Watched Kung Fu Panda with Lex and Nate today. Movie was surprisingly entertaining, as was the unexpectedly high concentration of smokin' MILFs at the matinee screening.

      Still tired after the last few weeks, but a good 8-hour sleep last night sure helped. We got back at 0900 on Friday, and sat around "waiting on the word" until 1730. As a captain, I could have walked out the minute I turned in my NODs and my rifle, but that would be bullshit when all the Joes are sitting around. So, I spent the afternoon absolutely fuming once everything had in the company areas had been put away or cleaned (around 1400) and we were still sitting around. I was the only staff officer left at that point, so there was pretty much no one to bitch to. I amused myself with a rubber-band and paper "V-wad" war with the drivers. It got so bad, we had to put eye-pro on. Highlights were the XO's driver pegging me square between the eyes from across the room and my subsequent sneaky revenge climbing over a file cabinet and desk to zap him right on the nape of the neck from 4ft away.

      Got tomorrow and Monday off. Guess I'll do my internet research on the above items while Sunja and the kids are at church tomorrow. Hopefully play in the sprinkler and take the kids riding tomorrow.

      I was definitely asleep on the bird today, and I was jumping outta that mofo! Call it a defense mechanism to postpone vomiting. When it's this hot and you're that tired, and that Herky-bird is bouncing all over the damned place, I need all the help I can get.

      I hit like a damned brick (damned thermals 100ft up), but no new joints and I was able to move on out after a moment of mental inventory. Only one injury out of 240 jumpers. Pretty good jump as far as I'm concerned. Gotta look into the Joint Combat Camera archives where they upload that shit, because the AF 1st Combat Camera guys from Charleston were all over the place sort of doing an exercise, getting ready for their deployment in October.

      Two more days of lanes and I'll be headed home for a much-deserved 3-day weekend and then the flurry of activity for loading our shit to ship out to JRTC.

      I love the conversations you have with Infantry guys. Someone was giving the Doc a ration of shit. Note, the Doc wasn't always a Doc, and proudly wears the Tower of Power on one shoulder and the scroll of 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment on the other. He's seen some shit. Check that. He's seen a lot of shit.

      Doc, whaddya mean you've never <insert something not important in the grand scheme right here>

      I'm home for a day of "refit" again. I've basically worked the last 5 days getting 2-3 hours of sleep at night, then a couple cat naps per day. Running the range has been awesome, but I'm about tapped out. I've learned a ton, and stood there up close and personal as we've run platoons one-by-one through night live-fires, which are pretty much the most difficult and dangerous thing we do. They're also our bread and butter. I won't go as far as stating that we truly own the night (though combat arms guys are certainly more capable of staking a claim on that title than most others), but I will say it's a truly incredible experience to flip the NODs down and watch in the pitch black as 30-40 men set up isolation, suppress the enemy, then seize a foothold, and ultimately clear each building ("clear" means all bad guys are killed or detained) on the objective--without a single visible light being used outside other than tracers. White lights as doors get kicked in, to better stun the enemy, then controlled pairs and back to the darkness. Seriously, when it goes well, it's inspiring. When it goes badly, someone dies. We've had a couple ricochet hits, but those are well within the acceptable norm. This is a truly dangerous business.

      I had the good fortune to OC the platoons in my future company. Is it any surprise that the one with no PL that is run by an E-7 was more tactically proficient than all but 1 of the other 7 platoons I've seen go through? One more platoon from "my" company will go on Sunday, and I'll be watching. Great way to get to know your personalities.

      Well, I just watched Transformers with the kids. SunJa went out shopping and picked me up a hammock and Rambo IV for Fathers Day. Ain't that sweet? I plan to take the hammock with me tomorrow. Sick of waking up with creepy crawlies on my face. I pulled a dead toad out of my fart sack the other morning, and one afternoon I woke up to some weird scrabbling noise on my ruck, which is at my head when I'm laid out. I looked up and was treated to the most surreal upside down scene of hardcore lizard porn you've ever seen. Weird.

      As I was laying there, broiling in my own juices a few days ago at around noon, trying to cop some sleep between iterations at the range, some female walked by my little hooch on the way to the signal guys, who are arranged another 15 meters down the path. Weird enough to see a female in our neck of the woods already. But then, I shit you not, I hear her ask in incredulous tones, "This is where you guys sleep?" I could almost hear the grimace. I heard one of the guys reply, "Uh yeah, you see any fucking buildings around here? That's one of the captains over there (obviously referring to me, stripped to my undershirt with my pants rolled up and fly wide open)." Then she proceeded to ask how we took showers. Uh... What showers is she talking about? I keep mine in a ziplock in my ruck. They're labeled "baby wipes." Seriously, some people.

      Time to get back to domestic bliss for a few more hours, then a good night of sleep before we start this thing all over again. smiley0.gif

      To those scared shitless Men who stepped up and traded their tomorrows for our todays: H-Minus! Very few things can humble a man like me, but the massive courage it took to jump into the darkness or charge down the ramps of those landing craft is simply breathtaking. I'd like to believe I could stand in the door of one of those C-47s and measure up to my Paratrooper forefathers.

      (I didn't have much luck searching. I'd like to make a high-res version of this for my desktop. Anyone got a good link? It has to be the narrow focus pic like this one, not the full pic, which was taken from the back of the LST.)

      A few days late, but I've been busy. I'm home on a 24-hour re-fit. Ahh Jun, with the smell of FAB (feet, ass, and balls) in the air. It's hot as hell outside, with temps over 102F. The IOTV is a motherfucker in this heat and humidity. Ask DadHavoc to repost the relevant parts of the email I sent him, because I was on a real tear after several days of nearly no sleep. I can't be the only one who thinks it's weird I couldn't use a phone all week, but I managed to get onto a computer with NIPRnet access in the TOC.

      Time for a nap. And maybe another shower. I had to use SunJa's luffa to grind about a 1/4" layer of grime, funk, dirt, and evil off of me after a week in the field with nothing but whorebaths. Mmmm.

      Got home around 0100 last night. I have to go back in and head to the field at 1400. Not looking forward to it, but it was nice to sleep in my bed. It was also nice to not sleep in my bed. Got a couple hours to play with the kids, then it's off to the field. Hopefully, there's a 48-hour reset in there and I'll be home for a couple days. Seems lame, but when you consider that many of these guys came back from a deployment in November and are leaving on another one, it makes sense. Our "year" at home really breaks down into under 8 months by the time you factor in all the training and field time. Less if you're going to a school.

      I found out when I'm taking command and what company. It's all tentative, and if I comport myself as a douchebag between now and then, obviously it's a no-go. I'm not worried about that though.

      My new boss is a fucking spot-light Ranger. I detest that shit.

      Fort Polk carries no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Unless you count that sweet little waitress we met at the Japanese steakhouse. Frankly, I think, the worst job there would be the retention NCO. If that had been my first and only taste of the Army, I'd be beating a path for the door. Ugh.

      Well, here's to poncho hooches and days without showers. I shall defend America with better and faster slide shows. My skills with Powerpoint are already legendary, and I take great shame from this. smiley8.gif

I'm immensely proud to consider many of the men and women who have paid this price my Brothers and Sisters in arms. To all my watchers out there in RvB-land: Earn it.

      So all was well at my buddy's place today. Kids playing, beer being consumed, dogs frolicking, brisket to be eaten, tall tales being told. Then Nate got pushed of the top of the ladder to the playhouse. Little bugger's got a knack for falling without getting hurt. Sucker did a 6ft somersault and landed flat but hard. The world came to a stop...until he found out he could go inside and have some cake. Sheesh.

      It's 0130 and I'm just now going to bed. Why? Because HowardRoark is a bastard and gave me the first season of Dexter, a Showtime series about a serial killer who preys on serial killers. Anyway, the last couple episodes were intense. Well worth staying up to watch. Pisser is, the new season (which I just ordered) doesn't come out until mid-August. But that means I can pick it up when I get back from JRTC.

      In other news, I got the new rear brake shoes on the LT80 with just about the normal amount of muss and fuss. So, I have a working rear brake on there. However, I ordered new cables for the front, and the ones that showed up were garbage. I'm getting ready to demand my money back, because they were almost rusted through--one has only 4 strands of cable remaining. Complete trash. So, I have rear brakes, but no front yet. The thing runs just fine though, so that's good.

      Time for sleep.

      I wanted to play outside today (once the rain stopped), but as I was putting my gear together, I failed to notice a sudden silence upstairs where all 3 kids were in their play room. SunJa and Namsuk are off putting a hurting on our credit card, so I'm the only presumably responsible adult around the house.

      Eventually, I looked up from putting my MOLLE ruck together (PITA. Seriously, I still like ALICE better)and realized it was quiet. A little too quiet. As I sneaked up the stairs, I smelled strawberry. WTF? Opening the door to the room, all eyes turn to me. I'd like you to picture this in your head for a moment. Would anyone care to guess the coverage in square feet which you can achieve with two 3oz bottles of that thin, made-for-kids yogurt? Let me tell you, it's impressive, even when you take a goodly amount and coat a 26lb one-year old first. Lex pointed at Nate, Nate pointed at Lex, and Carl was just wallowing in the middle of it all, the only perpetrator caught red-handed. I know good and well he didn't sneak down and steal all the yogurt out of the fridge (there were 6 bottles, though only two were open). That's more Lex's speed. Nate must have opened them, judging by the teethmarks.

      So, while I swell with pride to see my little would-be fire-team working together, they're all in solitary confinement for the rest of the day. Play together, pay together. Well, Carl's not, but the other two won't know that. So, aside from steam-vac'ing the upstairs playroom, I'm back to drinking beer and now, strapping all my various pouches, accessories, and accouterments to my body armor. Maybe I'll go out and put the new brake cables on the quad to see if they make a difference.

      Got a BBQ with a bunch of buddies tomorrow. It's funny when I think about the crew that I hang with off-duty. I'll be the only non-SF guy there. Weird. Regardless, we're dragging a bunch of dirtbikes out, busting out the nifty GPS units (seriously, those clowns have all the cool toys), and going on an expedition. Good times!

      You're welcome. I watched it again today about 3 times so I could have a good laugh. The quality and sync isn't as good as the football site link, but it has defied all attempts to extract it manually. I even went through the source code trying to get it. All attempts failed. At least this file is self sufficient in a decent format. I think after we finish in Iraq, CAIR headquarters should be next. You cover my six. I'll take lead.

      HADJI GIRL

      I was out in the sands of Iraq,
      and we were under attack,
      and I, well I didn?t know where to go.

      Then the first thing that I see
      is everybody?s favorite BurgerKing.
      So I threw open the door
      and I hit the floor.

      Then suddenly to my suprise,
      I looked up and I saw her eyes,
      and I knew it was love at first sight.
      And she said?

      Dirka dirka Muhammed jihad
      sherpa sherpa bakala.
      Hadji girl I can?t understand what you say.
      And she said
      Dirka dirka Muhammed jihad
      sherpa sherpa bakala.
      Hadji girl I love you anyway.

      And she said that she wanted me to see;
      She wanted my to go meet her family
      But I, well I couldn?t figure out how to say 'no',
      Cause I dont speak Arabic, so?

      She took me down an old dirt trail
      And we pulled up to a side shanty
      And she threw open the door
      And I hit the floor?
      Cuz her brother and her father shouted...

      Dirka dirka Muhammed jihad
      sherpa sherpa bakala
      They pulled out their AKs so I could see
      and they said
      Dirka dirka Muhammed jihad
      sherpa sherpa bakala
      so I grabbed her little sister and put her in front of me.

      As the bullets began to fly
      the blood sprayed from between her eyes
      and then I laughed maniacally.
      Then I hid behind the TV
      and I locked and loaded my M16,
      I blew those little fuckers to eternity.

      And I said
      Dirka dirka Muhammed jihad
      sherpa sherpa bakala.
      They shoulda known they were fuckin with a Marine. smiley1.gif

Let the world all go ape shit about a song a Marine made up to get some laughs over a very serious situation, instead of the three-year old kids with third-degree burns that cover up to or more than 90% of their bodies because they were casualties of their own people, innocent bystanders of suicide bombers. Why isn't anyone outraged about that, huh? Everyone wants to do everything but cruicify the Marine in the "Hadji Girl" incident, but no one even mentions that true attrocities that are going on. Propaganda and politics digusts me to no end.

      Come to think of it, I believe he said the technique wasn't even in the curriculum anymore, but it's a fun move for people who can pull it off. It's one that would be used in a grappling situation, and not in an actual real-life scenario.

    • Gael

      13 years ago

      Yeah, it seemed just a standard thing.

      That jump/pull the guy into your guard and hope he falls thing... I guess I'd have to see it to be sure, but I'm thinking there's MUCH more effective take downs that don't expose you to the same punishment and potential for failure if your enemy is a big dude like Chris. Leverage will nearly always trump body weight. What happens if the guy brings one leg back to prevent the heel attack that's suppose to steal his balance? And then uses that knee to crush your spine and back ribs. If I was him in the situation you described, that would have been my reaction. Or, you can easily break the guard from there and settle into a kneebar.


      Like I said, I was the only female there at the time. He was teaching the technique just as a technique. The understanding with all of our training is that it does not work on everyone. But for our level, it gives a starting point. If it works, great. If not, you'll find yourself in a new position to exploit a different weakness. Bujinkan is all about options. And everyone was in agreement that someone like me would not use this move. It just isn't practical.

      you're right. the 'Blue Force Tracker' works off eplrs. the difference between the eplrs radio set i use and those is that i get more control, more features, and the ability for co-hosting etc. i know exactly what you're talking about and i've seen vidoe training clips of it in action. actually, blue tooth wireless technology is the civilian off shoot of the same kind of project. encrypted, frequency hopping, key syncing, wide interfacing.

    • DaMick

      13 years ago

      what can i say, sarcasm doesn't translate well over the internet. most units, as they become digitally compliant, will make use of the EPLRS system one way or another. even infantry troops have a smaller version that rides in a ruck. it helps prevent friendly fire incidents and improves accuracy for CAS because the location marker actually apears directly on the HUD of the CAS pilot whose plane is running another type of EPLRS receiver. imagine, "60 meters at 220 from my present postion, danger close" and letting the flyboys take over.

      oh wait, you're air force.... meh, we're all green together.

    • DaMick

      13 years ago

      EPLRS is kinda similar to SINCGARS, but EPLRS translates only data, encrypted, frequency hopping, and automatically acts as a secure router for other radio sets of it's type across a field environment. FBCB2 is Force XXI Battle Command, Brigade and Below. it's a co-host device that uses the EPLRS to digitally transfer data in near realtime for other Force XXI units and, if you're receiving from the right data sources ie radar, air tracks. yeah, being a soldier's not as simple as it used to be.

      i have the exact opposite. my lateral tendons are tight, which pulls my knee cap out of place as my joint bends. applying weight causes grinding to the cartiledge and, if i'm not careful, the bones. i've been doing physical therapy etc to help improve the situation, but it's cut way back on my PT with the profiles and the doctor's orders. i've been thinking of investing in a bike to keep the cardio from degrading, and have been trying to walk farther and more frequently.

      i think the worst part is my current pogh job.

      Im in the northern part of Allegheny county. Almost into Wexford, but not quite. Most of the Steel (still) Mills are still around. I know they started tearing down a bunch, but for the most part you can still see a ton of abandoned steel mills in the area.


      I LOVE kennywood

      With the number of military friends I have, you would think one of them might have the time to start teaching me how to fight, but they are all quite busy. Perhaps when I get back to West Chester I can find a place to learn martial arts. Right now to make up for the lack of fighting skills I just keep mace and a knife with me when I'm in the city after dark. Pittsburgh is fairly safe, but sometimes it can get a bit creepy

      That sounds like an exciting goal. Like I've mentioned before, I wish I could learn how to box or even kickboxing. I think it would be fun and it wouldn't hurt to know how to protect myself. Unfortunetly I don't have the money to learn.

      Stay safe out there, Brother. There are too few of us in the world that actually get the picture of what we are doing. If we ever have the chance to meet, I'll buy you a beer, or whatever else it is that you drink. Take care.

      The quick and easy of it is that I studied American-style Kickboxing for about a year when my teacher started getting into Muay Thai. He studied with a Kru, the Muay Thai equivalent of a grandmaster, and we then started training in Muay Thai. We learned right away that it is not a martial art, but rather, a fighting style. Thus, we never studied katas or things of the such.

      Everything we did was centered around building strength, technique, and flexibility so as to inflict as much pain on one's opponent as possible. I studied Muay Thai until I left for the Army in July of 1997. It's been a long time since I've been inside a school, but the school I used to be in is closed now. The head instructor now teaches for Fairtex in Thailand.

      My oldest brother is a titleholder in his weight division and a certified instructor under the World Muay Thai Association. My second oldest brother is also a WMTA instructor. Me? I just throw leg kicks in the hopes of taking out the platform from which my opponents can launch an attack.

      >Nice piece!
      Thanks.

      >How many rounds do you have through it?
      Couple thousand. Barrel has been replaced with a matched set.

      >How exactly did you manage to take an issue weapon with you?
      It's not issue. It's a civilian .45 Combat Commander. It's about 1 & 1/2 inches shorter than an issue .45
      As a Lt. in the MP's I always carried a weapon. I usually had this one on.

      >I understood most of that, but I still have never figured this part out. Throated & Ported.
      The ejection port is widened out to prevent jams and the feed ramp has been "throated" opened up to feed hollow point rounds without jamming. The original stock .45 has a narrow throat and has trounble with anything other than std ball ammunition.
