Overnight Open Thread

To all the Veterans out there, I salute you. Thank you for your service and may those of us who still have the watch, measure up to the standards of previous generations of warriors and continue to serve America and keep the flame of freedom lit.

I went by a local VFW today. I bought a few rounds for some veterans and was regaled with stories of their time in service. Some were sad. Some were uplifting. It was an honor to hear their stories. Tremendous experience and one that I highly recommend y'all do sometime.

A Photo Salute To Veterans.

History Of Veterans Day

War Lottery

Slublog passed this via email. It is fascinating to think of this in light of the all-volunteer force we have today so you don't have to worry about your name being drawn in a lottery to get thrown into combat. Here was one of those lotteries that was taken on December 1st, 1969. What number would you have drawn? I drew a number over 300 and wouldn't have been drafted that year.


War Dogs

As we celebrate Veterans Day, don't forget about the non-human Veterans too. The United States War Dogs Association.

Military Working Dogs have been used by the U.S. Military since WW I.

The dogs were originally enlisted by the Quartermaster Corps, and a
diversity of breeds where accepted

Once knowledge and experience was gained the dogs of choice became the German Shepherd Dog and the Doberman. Due to the nature of work to be accomplished the Labrador eventually replaced the Doberman.

The German Shepherd remained the most frequently used dog. These dogs are
commonly referred to as War Dogs; however, the correct term is Military

Working Dogs. They have saved countless lives and casualties since the
beginning of their Military Service and they continue to do so today.


Top Military Bars

Hmmm. Top Ten Classic Military Spots To Drink A Beer. Some of these I haven't been to but I definitely have been to McGuire's Irish Pub a few dozen times. OK, maybe a few more dozen on top of that. To this day, I still haven't found a message my parents left me on a dollar bill there on the ceiling. You see, their entire ceiling is covered with dollar bills with messages. You could spend days trying to find a message. Still, a pretty cool joint with great ambiance.

My Pet Slut

What. The. Hell. First, we have teachers hookin' up with their students and now THIS? Porn Legend Sasha Grey Reads To 1st Graders. Where the hell was this when I was in school damn it?


#OccupyDenver Leader?

Is this the #OWS Denver dog that got elected as their leader? He's got some skills. I think.


Historical Figures As Bond Villains

9 Historical Figures Who Could Be Bond Villains. Interesting list but I really, really gotta disagree with Rupert Murdoch being on the list. That's just a pathetic, liberal wet dream of an idea that he's so evil in the journalist/media world. So who would you add to the list?


Red Tails

Yeah, yeah, I know. It's George Lucas and trailers have an annoying habit of making movies seem way better than the actual movie (Phantom Menace anyone?) but this third and final trailer of the movie Red Tails does look good.


Famous Veterans

Pretty significant list. Celebrities Who Served In The Military. Some of these were a surprise to me. Still a bunch missing though. I don't recall seeing Lee Marvin on the list.

Just Say No

I think it's safe to say that this beverage will NOT earn the coveted AoS HQ Approved Lifestyle Award. Flavored Alcohol Free Beverage. Yeah, that's right. An ALCOHOL-FREE Whisky drink. What's the use?


Parkour Anyone?

26 This will sound self-deprecating, but a good friend of mine was an Army Vet who did LRRP duties as well as being a tunnel rat in Vietnam. He is 15 years older than me and over time would confide in me his stories. He was also awarded a Bronze Star as well as a Purple Heart. (We both became cops after our time was done). I told him one time that while I brag about my service to my country, it pales in comparison to his service since he was a wartime vet. I was a Reagan era peacetime vet who never saw combat. To this day he still yells at me when I bring up the fact that he deserves more respect for being a wartime vet than I do for being a peacetime vet.

34 Okay here is something that I don't understand about the draft.

I understand that plenty of people resented having to be forced to serve in the military and tried to dodge the draft by various legal and illegal means.

But instead of going through all that trouble, why not just fail basic training? Wouldn't they just kick you out anyway and you wouldn't have to worry about fleeing to Canada or coming up with bogus conscientious objector excuses?

45 When I got my Doberman from the shelter, renamed her (her old name "Jewel" didn't meet with my approval).

Trying to decide on a name, I found a story about a War Dogs memorial dedicated to dogs who were killed in WWII; the Marines apparently used Dobermans at the time.

One of the names on the memorial was "Pepper", a name now shared by my big fat attention-whore Doberman.

Those people include my uncle Art and my uncle Leroy (both Vietnam); my maternal grandfather, who was in the British Signal Corps in WWII; and my great-grandfather, who fought in WWI (and died from an asthma attack exacerbated by the 1918 Spanish Flu). To them, and to all who served and who currently serve -- especially those in our American military -- thank you, and God bless.

There is alway punitive discipline for deliberately tanking your effort. The Marines formed "motivational companies" for recruits/draftees in the '60'swho weren't cutting it - and that was pretty scary.

60 My friend opened up once and told me about a time when he was on a LRRP mission. Apparently, an FNG recently in-country stepped on a mine and his intestines opened up. Realizing that he had not blown their cover, my friend told me that he and his colleagues kept telling the guy who was still alive but could not be helped, to shut the fuck up and not give away their position. My friend described his screaming as pain and crying for his momma until he finally did shut up. I understood his reasoning, while others would consider him a monster. He's not a monster.

68 I would have drawn 270 in that lottery. Also want to thank all the vets on this thread; have a bunch of relatives who served, from two great-great-grandfathers in the Army of the Potomac to two first cousins who served in 'Nam.

Apropos of thanking vets, I always thank them whenever I see them. Last week I was waiting in line at the deli counter at the local supermarket along with a Marine vet in a wheelchair. We got to talking and I thanked him for his service-- he got his disabling injury in 'Nam and he said it means a lot to him to be thanked rather than called a baby killer-- as his generation of vets was when they first came home.

I guess you could - end up in the stockade or the brig, or get a Dishonorable Discharge - which would make it bloody hard to get a job with that hanging around your neck the rest of your life. I knew a LOT of guys that got drafted in the Viet Nam war, and none of them tanked Basic. My lottery number was 256 in 1973, so I was a little too young and lucky not have to put up with the ugly shit in that war. Hats off and thanks to the men (and some women) who served in that ugly war. They were real patriots who tried their best to do their duty ina pretty ugly situation.

Funny you should mention that.

Got to teletype and found out I was still alive.The worst part about that night was that the damn AP kept changing the numbers. They would sent out x date number x then 10 minutes later we would get a correction x not x it is x plus x.Needless to say, very stressful.Everyone got drunk!

I would have enlisted into the Air Force if I'd had a low lottery number before getting drafted for Nam.

On this Veterans Day, I wish to mention my good friend Emmett Horn, KIA on December 23, 1964 while serving on Special Forces A Team A1-113 TDY from Okinawa to Camp Ashau, Republic of Vietnam.

Emmett was a country boy from Vidor, Texas. On the date of his death, he was leading a combat patrol of CIDG Vietnamese north of Ashau. The column was ambushed, and the indigenous force failed to respond to the attack. Emmett was moving down the line extolling the force to move towards the ambush when he was hit in the back of the head. He lived for a few hours, and his body was recovered to Ashau the following day.

I honor both his unselfish service to America, and his friendship. He liked roll your own tobacco, and loved his pet monkey Lyndon. (LBJ) He is remembered, and especially on Veterans Day.

152 From the NYCGA hippies' public website, proposal passed yesterday:
Direct Action: November 17th: Jordan: One week from today we are going to shut down Wall Street! We are going to stop the opening bell at the stock exchange and in its place we are going to ring the people’s bell! And it will be awesome! And we will create a massive carnival that will demonstrate the beautiful world we are creating together.
... we agree that it’s important to show our militancy. When we were coming up with this we looked to our comrades who thew down in Seattle in 1999. The way that went down is that they were really militant and they were also beautiful. They had lots of costumes, they had well-designed props…that attracts people and makes our message easier to communicate.
Question: What is the goal?
R: That’s a great question. We have a couple goals. One of our goals is to stop the morning bell. Another one of our goals is to demonstrate the beautiful world that we all want to create, in the epicenter of the forces that are destroying us. Another one of our goals is to build our capacity as a movement and appeal to more communities that are not currently involved in OWS.
Hippie Operational Security protocols: Now, all we gotta do is keep next week'speaceful, non-violent, physical assault on a national financial institution sooper sekritfrom the cops, the NYSE, and their private security goons. Don't tell nobody outside of OWS. Sshhhhh!! Pinky swear to secrecy!

164 My father served in the Coast Guard from 1948-1951. He was a radio operator on the cutter Androscoggin and then on LORAN stations in the Gilbert Islands.

He feared only two things: one, the coconut crabs, which lived in the forest and would come into your tent at night and sever your toes from your feet while you slept. They were the size of dogs and could break open coconuts, which meant that your toes didn't stand a chance.

The second thing he feared were the STDs carried by the topless native women, who were black but had blonde Afros and European features. The only medical attention on the islands was from a pharmacist's mate, who was out of his depth. Some of the STDs had not previously been recorded by American medical science. Men came down with genital warts that made the head of their junk look like starfish. The pharmacist's mate would numb the affected area and cut off the starfish arms with a razor blade. They usually grew back in a few weeks.

Dad didn't lose his virginity until he got out of the Coast Guard, and to this day he has a terror of crabs, starfish, and black women.

This one goes out to my late father .
Born to soldier .
He was a small town boy from the deep south . An enlisted man when Truman integrated the barracks . According to him it was no big deal .The army kept rolling along .
Dad went from E-1 to 0-5 in his twenty five years including two years in Viet Nam . The worst of it was six months advising three south Vietnamese infantry battalions and six months out of the Lae Khae ( I can never remember how to spell that )base camp with the Big Red One . He lost several close friends , but thanks be to god , he never got a scratch .

One of the most despicable acts by any US president was Jimmy Carter's granting a presidential pardon to those who avoided the draft during the Vietnam war.

So for the surviving families of the 58,000+ brave souls who didn't return, Carter's gift of amnesty honored the spineless pukes who either refused to serve or left the country.

This was a direct insult to the men who did honor their country, and Carter has been the subject of great derision for decades for this act. Carter should have died in a fire long ago.

Thats exactly what my cousin did. He enlisted in the marines and right after he got drafted, so he ended up a marine. Was in vietnam in '67 and '68, was an M60 gunner, got over run twice and lived, and fought in the battle of Hue. I wish I knew what unit he was in, but he died a few years back of cancer.

218 Went to the rifle range in Azusa today. Lots of Vets out there. Fired about 200 rounds through the new mini 14 Ranch, first time I've shot it and with the scope it is super awesome. Then I tried the Remington 30.06 woodsmaster 740 again and it failed.....after about 12 rounds it started acting up, put in the cartridge and it won't fire. This is after the trouble I had with some bunk reloads two weeks ago. Now I'm just doing factory Remington ammo, but it doesn't seem to want to fire more than 10 rounds a day. I really wish I had just gotten a Springfield instead.

They haven't cracked the hooch open yet; Uncle Donny decided he wanted them all to go hunting instead. The fact that most of them do not actually have licenses to hunt in Arkansas didn't phase him, either.

Cain Velasquez giant, racist "Brown Pride" tattoo reall pissed me off.

And at the weigh-ins today, with an arena filled with screaming Mex-American fans, he vowed to win for "La Raza". Fucking racist dickbag.

Imagine the UFC having a white fighter with a giant "White Pride" tattoo being greeted by a crowd of screaming white people and vowing to make The Race proud and win the fight for The Race.

It's fucked up. I like watching UFC fights. But I can't in good conscience support this one.

260 Juan Williams on Fox just breathlessly reported a new poll that had Gingrich 2d, a few points behind Romney. It was a McClatchey-Marist poll.

But folks, ya gotta look closely at these polls. This one had a total of...a grand total of...347 respondents. 347 in a national poll?! Folks, that's barely 6 respondents for each of the 57 states! Statistically speaking, any poll of less than 500 is worthless, and we do NOT have a nationwide election for President, we have 50 statewide elections. So you need to look at the state-by-state polling, no less than 500 respondents per state, to get a true picture.

297 VFW has sold the Buddy Poppy, made by disabled vets, on Memorial Day since the 20's. The name comes from the post-WWI hit song My Buddy, a real tear-jerker.

There was a 6th-grade teacher in my school who made her whole class memorize and recite "In Flanders Fields" every year. Of course, late-50's kids roundly hated her for this. I found out many years later that she'd lost someone very important to her in WWI, and that was her, um, therapy.

Who around here ever saw a Civil War veteran? I knew many WWI vets, one British Boer War vet, and one guy from the Spanish-American. In my yoot, of course, WWII vets were so thick on the ground, it was considered weird if you weren't one. The Great War army vets looked down on the WWII vets, who looked down on Korean vets. Marines, as I remember it, got a pass, since they had some wars in there that nobody else had heard of.

Stephanie: My second FA (friendly amendment) is to remove the line that says, “Ensure that tarps and tents coming here are made of flame-retardant materials,” because I think we need to accept any donations we get. I wouldn't want to see us refusing tents because they're not flame-retardant.
R: I accept, with the caveat that there will be no fires in non-flame-retardant tents, and that non flame-retardant tents will be placed far away from the generators.
side comment – what about cigarettes?
R: I don't mean cigarettes, I mean open flame. No bonfires in tents!
F: I’d like to close stack on FAs.
FA: One amendment. I did not hear a mention of ash trays, which seems like a very obvious fire source.
R: I would respond that this document reflects the work towards bringing generators back. The People’s Firehouse working group may propose further proposals in the future. Perhaps one of those could address ash trays as a legitimate fire concern.

333 Oh good God, the People's Firehouse?
Yes, the nitwits are taking "serious legal actions" against NYC to get their generators back. In a effort to demonstrate an adult-like sense of responsibility, they came up with the People's Firehouse (a tent actually), a trained generator refueling team and procedures, and a fire safety plan for the park. No bonfires in tents!
Their budget request also included $125 for firemen helmets, badges, and a sireen. From someplace cheap like Wal-Mart, but not Wal-Mart exactly, unless no one else carried these items in blisterpacks.

[I may have completely fabricated that last paragraph, but who can tell?]

This is Day Two of me being the sole cook for 8
(10, now) men who range in size from a runt of 6'2", 220 to the youngest
of the bunch who is a dainty 6' 10" and I'd be willing to bet closer to
400 than 300 lbs. I am worn clean out. They polished off most all of half a hog and several chickens
yesterday, though I had enough left over to make a bunch of buffalo chicken
quesadillas and some BBQ burritos today.

Thor is sort of shell shocked from all of it, but he's enjoying it. He has never been around so many of my kinfolk at once. He also told me my accent is getting so thick from being around all these wild-ass boys that he can barely understand me.

383 No shit, it's like the bad part of an early Heinlein novel. I was a Boy Scout back when camping procedures (and some of the equipment) were still derived from between-the-wars Army practice. You put your tents up in neat rows to accomodate fire escape, and to leave room for trenching. There has to be a bucket of water, and one of sand, in front of each tent flap. Urinating on the ground was punishable by death (just joking, it was Geo.Washington who did that). You put a large body of people under canvas, and you have to adopt a certain lifestyle, or die of it.

These jungens are going to get all messed up with burns and diseases, and then "demand" that the rest of us take care of them. Joke's over. Mayors have a responsibility to step in on health grounds. This is what "public health" is all about. They need Jocelyn Elders Minnie Lee Jones down there stat.

411 I'm getting *worried* about the marching hippies. They left Princeton 4 hours ago headed towards their overnight bivouac in Trenton, 10 miles away. No tweets since then.

420 I presented a flag that I carried in Afghanistan to my old high school today and in my short little speech I mentioned that I was in the 1% (around 1% of the population is serving or has served in uniform). I don't think the kids got it, but I did get some dirty looks from a couple teachers. I don't think I will get any invites to talk to any of thier classes.

When I see pictures of the OWS types it reminds me of one of my favorite cadences and what we should be doing to them. Instead of, "clubing the baby seals" it would be, "clubbing the dirty hippies".

486 After the speeches ended, after the bagpiper played "Amazing Grace," Bob Hamilton went searching for one of the 58,272 names on the polished black granite wall of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Hardly a day goes by that he doesn't think about Ray George, a fellow helicopter pilot who was killed in Vietnam when he subbed for Hamilton one day four decades ago.
But Veterans Day, a friend had reminded him, is about thanking those standing in front of the wall, tracing their fingers over the names of the brothers they lost.
So Hamilton, 62, and his fellow veteran Bob Poe, 67, rode their motorcycles from Louisville, Ky., into the nation's capital with their flags flying for the ceremony. They were celebrating not only their service as veterans, but what journalist and war correspondent Joe Galloway on Friday called an "obligation to live each day to its fullest potential ... for our having lived, and their having died."

507 I have kind of a cool Vetran's day themed story. Grim's birthday is this month and when i asked what he wanted (since i am sending a box) he couldnt think of anything. he said "I only want you."

well i dont fit in a box and wont keep if shipped anyway. so thats out.

an old friend of mine who is a retired combat weatherman decided he would fix this. He and a bunch of his buddies are pooling money together to send me to a pinup photographer. a Really good good one named Roy Varga. His before and after pix are stunning. he can turn the girl next door into a sex kitten.

so a bunch of old vets are doing a good turn for Grim, mostly i think because if old R loves me and thinks hes worth it, thats good enough for them. And i think because they want to see my boobies.

by the way you cant do Vetrans day without lots of flag draped coffin pix and pix of cemeteries. Those make me go haywire when Grims deployed. All the people i love most who are departed were Vets including my Gramma who was one of the very first female officers ever. Sigh this day has been sorta bittersweet for me.

512 Oh no Jake, you can't do the blood pinning. It was banned when I got winged but after a few pitchers of beer, me and a few of my fellow aviators went into the back office at the O'Club and did it anyway. A Marine punched in mine and actually bent my wings. Didn't hurt too much at the time but the next day....

515 Fuck it, I'm going to become a whiny bitch. Why is it that I have 3 living siblings plus their children who just happen to be my nieces and nephews, and none of them give a shit that I served. You see, this is the kind of fucked up family I have. Yeah I'm an asshole, but I wasn't an asshole to them when I was stationed in Europe or somewhere in the states far away from them. I remember back in October 1982 when my brother got remarried and all I had to wear since I was in my technical school at Lowry AFB Colorado was my dress blues. My soon to be sister in law made goddamn sure she made fun of me for wearing my dress blues to her wedding. 1982 also wasn't a banner year for wearing your military uniform in public, just saying.

15 miles scheduled for tomorow.
They reached OccupyTrenton and were met with a warming fire, food, showers/porta-potties, and tents/blankets. Gonna be fun tent sleeping in 36 degree weather for a few hours before getting back up and on the road again tomorrow morning.

When i told my mom i was hangin with him again she remembered him clearly. hes a wild thing that would fit in with your men. Big as an Ox and a cowboy to boot. Hes helped me a lot with Ellie, and his wife has been tolerant and motherly, knowing i got Grimmy.This is going to be the BEST PRESENT EVER.and i am sure i will let them see their handiwork. its not like im shy.

597 KZnexton,

What scope are you mounting on your Ruger?

I have the mini 14 ranch as well and love it. Until I got my marlin 336 it was my favorite 'varmint gun'. Nothing beats a lever action rifle for coolness...

Posted by: phat at November 12, 2011 01:51 AM (Jk7ma)

598 but as it was put by my friend
--what could be more cool than having a pinup to look at and everyone
thinks is amazing and you secretly know... its your wife?
Posted by: gushie at November 12, 2011 01:24 AM (QNeKQ)

Gushka, this is a seriously cool thing -- and I think it would be a hoot for Grim and seriously great.....but you will need to be careful about who you are talking to about it.

You are who you are, comfortable in your skin and set in your ways, and your pinup will be a reflection of that and will be a treasure for Grim. But some youngsters who have just discovered the attention that can be had by wiggling their fannies might seek the same thing -- and it could be a disaster. Capturing an 18-year-old as a pinup invites unflattering comparison with the 30-year-old a man finds himself living-with in just a dozen years.

I was talking about imprinting a few nights back -- it can be a dangerous thing to have one's man thinking of a younger version of yourself. Will he bond more with the "yourself" or more with the "younger"? Once people become more fixed in their appearance and demeanor, it's much less of an issue.

So, while I'm in awe of how fantastic an idea this is for you, and how wonderful it sounds like it'll be, be extremely careful with -- well, maybe even mentioning it to extremely young ladies (under 25, say), as it may not work out well for them in the long run. They're still changing too rapidly to be frozen in time.

Of course, I just turned 49 a few days back, and I still think I'm the same roguish charmer I was at 25 (if a bit more stiff and less energetic). So I may be biased in where I set the cutoff.....

OH good lord! i am not evangelical about this.this was proposed as a present for the lonely spouse sitting in a rockpile. Im the last person to go encouraging little girls to take naughty pics.
Admission: R remembers me (as a girlfriend) at hellraising 20, so this idea occurred to him.
I am generally the person who says "I think you shouldnt do this," to the little girlies in my care. (my Kid and her pals who i do see) But frankly most of the women i know are all grownups, and know im a woman with a past anyway, who wasted it on a man who didnt appreciate me. The consensus is "good for you. Grim deserves something fun."
with my little girls (they are 22-23 now) i am the Miss Manners, the mom you can talk to, but who wont take your shit, and the person who explains how not to get in trouble! (Just dont DO it!)
You know how i got all that good advice? by fucking up so extremely badly that its legendary. they all know if you wanna do something bad run it by Gushie first. She will tell you straight if it is cool or dumb, or how to make it work ok.
And if you boyfriend sux i am not shy about saying so, or what will happen to you if you dont dump him.

It stands on its own but there are earlier entries in the franchise. On the original Xbox and PC there was Morrowind. On Xbox 360, Sony PS3, and PC there is Oblivion. You can find Oblivion in a 'Game of the Year' edition for cheap (typically $19.99) with all of the additional material that came out afterwards already on the disc.

I probably won't get Skyrim until it too is in a 'GOTY' version for a reduced price. I've got far too much stuff piled up to even consider buying the latest thing at full price.

634 I'm getting ready to retire from the USAF next year after a hilarious and star-crossed career.

Separated in 2000 to go fly for the airlines, got furloughed after 9/11 and have been able to piece together 20 years of active service by doing numerous deployments in my reserve unit.

My Veteran's Day thoughts are on the guys still deployed. Now that the 'one' has decided we're pulling out of Iraq I'm getting disturbed.

Been to both Iraq and A-stan multiple times and I can't understand pulling out of Iraq and staying in A-stan.

Sorry to air this in public, but Afghanistan is a shithole. The people are ignorant tribesmen and there is nothing in that country worth one US life. We have destroyed the Taliban's ability to project force. It's time to declare victory and come home.

Iraq on the other hand...

It would be nice to have our bases at Al Asad (although that place sucks) and Balad when the inevitable Iran action kicks off.

He's
an outspoken pro-life Catholic. Similarly, I respect Justin Timberlake,
despite not being a fan of his music. I read a Timberlake interview in
Maxim years ago; they tried really hard to get him to dish out some dirt
on his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears, and he refused. He didn't publicly
criticize her at all until she started making headlines with her
outlandish behavior, and then he said she was a lousy mother who needed
to try to set a better example for her kids. There are definitely some good people in Hollywood.

You can fail for medical reasons. My uncle had a bad leg and they kicked him out of basic at Ft. Dix before he was crippled. This was during WWII and a terrible blow to his pride. He managed to get a posting with the Coast Guard, so he could feel like he was making a contribution.

OTOH, I had a cousin who went to great lengths to avoid the draft during the late 60s. Astonishingly, his father, a very successful MD in Los Angeles helped him by supplying him with certain drugs to fake a disability. I can only believe he thought it was safer than letting him attempt this on his own. (OTOOH, one of his patients was Judy Garland, so he may have been pretty easy going with the prescription pad.) So, he avoided the military but instead began a long career of drug abuse. The only time I met him was at my sister's wedding. I didn't know the background then but something was obviously very wrong with this spectrally thin relative. I didn't know then how to recognize a serious junkie. I thought he had cancer. He was dead less than three years later. He would have been better off enlisting and trying to qualify for a non-combat position.

There is a reason why, despite leftist fantasies, almost nobody in the military today wants to have the draft back.

673 Fuck it, I'm going to become a whiny bitch. Why is it that I have 3 living siblings plus their children who just happen to be my nieces and nephews, and none of them give a shit that I served. You see, this is the kind of fucked up family I have. Yeah I'm an asshole, but I wasn't an asshole to them when I was stationed in Europe or somewhere in the states far away from them. I remember back in October 1982 when my brother got remarried and all I had to wear since I was in my technical school at Lowry AFB Colorado was my dress blues. My soon to be sister in law made goddamn sure she made fun of me for wearing my dress blues to her wedding. 1982 also wasn't a banner year for wearing your military uniform in public, just saying.

********

We were stationed with my Dad in Japan-he did three tours-I think in Vietnam...he does"n't talk about it much and I don't remember...

I do remember the flight back from Japan to the States-when my Dad was done with going over to Vietnam.

On the flight over the Pacific the pilot-announced that Robert Kennedy had been shot.

The silence on that flight -even I as a kid understood it.

In those days-you flew passenger planes in your uniform.

We landed in Cali-I don't know if it was L.A. or San Fran we had to do some in processing at some damn Cali base.

Anways when we landed -...my Dad took off and left us behind.

I was like five-I was all not again -I guess I took my younger brother and tried to haul ass after him-becasue he had split so many times before.

Later I found out Dad had done that to spare us the sight of hippies spitting on him.

Welcome to America!

I remember my Dad cussing that whole night as we drove in the car and him wondering how he could get us the hell back-

home where ever the hell that was.....

1968 was a hard year to wear the uniform.

There was a place around here that had short, short spaghetti (four inches, maybe), tossed in with one-inch cubes of steak and a sauce that would peel back your skull and pour lit gasoline inside. You can even do steak and soba in a miso broth.

You can do almost anything with noodles and steak -- just point yourself in a direction and go.

753 ""Really? One of those record player type things with the big trumpet? And how would you save the finish?""

This is an internal horn console model. 4 foot tall sucker. The finish is alligatored from age. I basically use the alcohol and olive oil like I was french polishing it, but I don't use the shellac. The alcohol will remelt the shellac to a point were it flattens back out and the gloss comes back a little. Its tedious, and a real pain. Once you get it somewhat flat you can wet sand it with olive oil and 400 sandpaper, then actually french polish it. If you do it right it almost looks untouched. I showed my brother how to do his and it made an amazing comeback. It looks original.

Kinda, The college pricks used to mock us, but it carries no weight because I knew I was at a college that they could could not get in to.

A classmate of mine killed one of them in a bar fight. It was a weird death, the guy got hit and landed awkwardly on the edge of a table. Killed him. A jury cleared my friend because multiple witnesses talked about how the dead guy attacked him. The dead guys lawyer tried to make a big deal about how our 'unarmed combat training' gave us an unfair advantage.

Number 16 in the lottery. They drafted men at 19 yo then. They stopped drafting while I was 18.
Lee Marvin was a Marine who landed on Iwo Jima and was wounded half way up Mount Saribachi. Johnny Carson brought up that fact with Lee and his getting a medal. Lee modestly declined that he was a hero. When he landed, like the rest of his squad. Lee hit the dirt and it was his sargent he said who stood the whole time rallying the squad and getting them moving. When Lee was wounded, the sargent organized the party to take Lee down to the shore and then led the squad up the Mount.
Lee said the sargent was the real hero, not him. He gave the sargent's name: Bob Kershan - better known to me as Captain Kangaroo.Yeah, it is the quiet ones that you don't know about.

And, yet, a couple of weeks ago I was up near Crater Lake in Oregon, where there was some discussion about oral traditions from its formation 7700 years ago (speaking of events best observed from a considerable distance....).I'd score 12,000-or-so as definitely wrong, any period where we have writings that have been decoded as absolutely right, and periods in the middle as arguable. By way of comparison, Ötzi the Iceman is about 5300 years old, the pyramids go back about 4700 years, stonehenge is about 5000.

Bethesda has not responded on their own tech support forum and now the fanboy trolls have taken over trying to drive out the people reporting bugs, because they don't police their own forums either.

I will *NEVER* but a new release without a refund option again (reason #492 to hate Steam).

This is possibly the most FUBAR release I've seen, the support crew took the freaking day of release off. OMFG.

Sorry to just bitch but I'm out $60 for a buggy, klutzy game with no support on opening weekend.

People on Consoles have less problems because they designed it for the console market, thus the broken interface, limited graphics improvements, and more linear and restricted gameplay.

Shipmate, I have some classic bars I went to also. Unfortunately, they're all probably Top Secret NOHOME! LOL! Practically the entire strip on Magsaysay in Olongapo, then how about the Barrio Barreto and Subic City? Ah, the stories I could tell! And that's just the Philippines.

If you were a Sailor on Westpac in the 1980's and before, if your BG didn't stop in the PI, there probably would have been a mutiny on board.

"One for Da Road" in Olongapo will always hold a special place in my heart. Th girls there took care of us. They were good friends.

And to this day, I am convinced that the finest intelligence service in the world is run by the bar girl network in the PI! We were amazed at the stuff that they knew. Amazed.

Have a fine Navy day!

819 I'm not sure bethesda ever released a clean game, there always seems to be some shit going on. In oblivion there was that A-bomb glitch, which could occur somewhere after 400 hours or so. I made it to 1200 before it hit. The PC users actually had it good, there were patches to fix it, but the Xbox users were screwed. It was a game ending glitch. Doors would stop opening, so if you had to get inside somewhere forget it, you were done. Sometimes the doors would open, but days later. I put some of my coolest swords in a display case in one of the houses and when i went to get it the case wouldn't open. the other thing was that any fire spells would hang, like if you used some fireball magic the fireball just hung in space, and if YOU got hit by an enemy using fire you were stuck walking around engulfed in a fireball for hours, and you couldn't see where you were going, It was bad.

That would be what is known as a myth. Bob Keeshan was a Marine but he turned 18 and enlisted too late to see any combat.

821 Yeah, there is a reason I hold out for the Game of the Year editions before buying. I'm really cheap when it comes to games.

OK, two reasons.

Usually, in addition to any added material, the GOTY version includes any patches offered by the developer since the game shipped. a major hassle reduction.

Good Morning Morons;

LOL, stories of Olongapo. The sailor's paradise. best liberty port in the world. And Subic City?? What was an officer and Gentlemen doing in Subic City since it was always off-limits? (Yes, I went there once)

But alas, all of that is gone now, as well as all the good sailor bars I used to hit in Oakland (Overland House and Clancy's down in Jack London Square)

Down in Charleston a Marine’s
ashes were finally laid to rest. This after they were discovered in a GD flea
market for GD sale. I didn’t know whether to cry are to be enraged or both.

Hey Vic. How goes it? It's around 40 right now. I should be used to cold weather, given where I came from, but it ain't happening.

833 Such good schmaltz Christmas shows on this morning. "Moonlight and Mistletoe" - story of Santa and Daughter fighting evil real estate developer to keep their holiday theme park open.

Damn what crap. At least they could have made it more modern by showing what is the latest evil. Santa fights Democrat city hall as they use eminent domain to take his property so they can give it to a crony who pays them under the table. And then only pay Santa nickles on the dollar for what its worth.

Looks like this Kristina Hefler finally had sex. Typical 20 year old, they discovered something everyone else already knows and thinks they invented it. And you're right, these people want to destroy all moral boundaries then are shocked when someone takes it to extremes.

835 My draft lottery number in 1970 was 230, when the projected call was up through 240. Richard Nixon's Vietnamization program reduce the need for draftees such that they ended mid-year. He did this despite the whining of the rioters at Kent State. More detail can be found here http://tinyurl.com/6q3brtq

836 My squadron's favorite place to hang outside the Osan main gate was a bar called the Golden Gate. Like most Korean clubs catering to the military at that time, they had drinks, snacks like dried squid, music and local girls dancing in bikinis.

Eventually, so many Warthog pilots were parking themselves there every night, one of them donated a nice painting of an A-10 in flight that graced the center spot behind the bar.

I went back a few years ago and it had completely changed, aimed toward the local Korean clientele, and the decor was some weird metro-aqua-fusion that made it look like a whorehouse trying to look like a museum.

The girls were gone, although the other bars had knockout Russian girls in bikinis dancing (hard times in the former Soviet Union, you know).

837 I was a little surprised that the Great Alaskan Bush Company outside Elmendorf was not on the list. Maybe because it's not just a bar but a strip club?

A veteran – whether active duty, retired, National Guard or Reserve – is someone who at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

841 To all my fellow veterans:
Have a good Veteran’s Day. We all should take time to remember the fallen and continue to support those still serving.
HOOAH!

842 The 1975 lottery applied to my birth year of 1955. My drawing was 358. No way I would have been called if the draft was active. And, yeah, I was relieved as hell!

Thank you, all you Veterans! Most Americans DO appreciate you! God bless ya!
