    I know that some pics of this set have already been posted, alas in a much lower resolution. Just came upon the hi-res gallery and thought I'd share:

    Actually watched part of that CALFX with the senior leaders, out doing leader recon for our own upcoming CALFX (which did not go as well as theirs) pretty darn good job of integrating everything together on their part if i do say so myself.

    I've been told that the modern day Regiment is much more highly trained than what it was a decade ago.

    never been in 75th so I shall not comment on them, Eagle...but I can say that in my experience the army as a whole is very highly trained for its CURRENT conflict, but has degraded in other skills not required in a COIN environment. I would surmise that the same is true elsewhere. We've worked at insurgency and small unit operations so much that we've lost a lot of skill at decisive action.

    Looking good in that Multicam. Do they wear them all the time in Garrison or just while in the field?

    That would be it. Rangers have gotten real good at short-duration raids(direct action). Even the physical training has changed. Rangers are generally stronger, but Rangers of the past were faster. They were hiking 35 miles regularly. I never walked remotely that distance in my time in the Army. 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.
