    The Army really seems to be discouraging the wear of any uniform other than ACUs or Dress Blues. Even in this picture, where every other service member is in a Class B or Class A uniform.
    No such thing in the USN as Class A or B uniforms..Those sailors are wearing "Dress Blues".

    I see National Guardsmen frequently here in Iowa..they always have on BDUs..always.

    What's more likely to happen is they'll eat everything off of you including your weapon, ammo, and clothing, and **** little goat pellets everywhere.

    Marc: I don't recall anyone (IDF) carrying a 120. It was always towed or mounted. 81mm was bad enough and took two people just for the tube, bipod and base, never mind the ammo.

    In this photo provided by the U.S. Army, Sgt. Thomas C. Ray in this undated photo. Ray, 40, a North Carolina National Guardsman and Navy Veteran was killed over the weekend when a roadside bomb struck his vehicle near Baghdad, Iraq, authorities said.

    Ray developed a love for military service early in life, having joined the Navy in 1985 after begging his mother to sign an early enlistment waiver. He was a medical specialist and served three years active duty.

    Despite being assigned to the 105th Military Police Battalion in Asheville, Ray had volunteered to go with the Rocky Mount-based 1132nd MP company when it mobilized in June.

    “He wanted to save lives and bring back the younger guys,” his wife, Linda Ray, said in a statement provided by the National Guard

    + I would hope they try to protect the Jericans better...

    Because Jericans do explode when hit by a (rifle) bullet right? Or just in movies?

    [SIZE=5]Let's See:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]The new aircraft, ZZ175, arrived from the Boeing plant in San Antonio, Texas, where it went for additional work following the 'Fly Away' ceremony at Long Beach, California, in February 2008. ZZ175 has joined 99 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton and is the first C-17 of the five to be owned outright by the RAF, the previous aircraft having been operated under a leasing arrangement from manufacturer Boeing. However, as the lease terminates later this year, the other four aircraft will then transfer to full RAF ownership.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4]The RAF's C-17 fleet has flown approximately for 41,000 hours since delivery, and in the five years up to the end of March 2008 these hard-working aircraft flew a total of 56,924 passengers and carried a massive 78,649,939 kilograms of freight, much of it to and from operational theatres. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4]The sixth C-17 is expected to be delivered to the RAF around the middle of this year.[/SIZE]

    She played Lt.Col. Mckenzie On JAG a completely different series . She plays an army wife in "Army Wives" Either way she is hot.

    This undated photo, supplied by the U.S.Army, shows Staff Sgt. Emanuel Pickett, 34, of Teachey, N.C., who the Department of Defense said Tuesday, April 8, 2008, died Sunday, April 6, 2008, in Baghdad. Pickett was assigned to the 1132nd Military Police Company in Rocky Mount and in civilian life was a police officer in Wallace. He died from wounds sustained during an attack that wounded 14 other soldiers assigned to his unit in Iraq. (AP Photo/U.S.Army)
    I scroll through these threads every day. It was a body blow when I hit this posting and saw a post relating to a unit I served in.
