    brad is absolutely right. 173rd did one of the first BCT-sized decisive action rotations that JMRC has done in years, we noted a lot of training and experience issues throughout. This was not due to them fouling up, simply an example of where our military is at. There is no way to be fully trained in everything out there in the realm of Soldiering, shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Put a Ranger platoon from a decade or two ago in the woods, ask them to find a point on a map, and set up a hasty ambush and such and I'll put my money on them outperforming Rangers of today. We just don't do it anymore outside of Ranger School.
    Interesting feedback on the changes in expertise; it makes sense. The "only good at short duration stuff" was always the knock on the SEALs; not well versed in the fundamentals of infantry combat, ,hiking long distances, working with supporting arms, etc.

    I'm sorry. I'm not familiar with the term "bladerunning" as it pertains to EIB. Could you enlighten me?
