• E4 who doesn't salute any Lieutenants?

    I was talking to a Marine E4 and he said that because hes MARSOC he doesn't salute any O1s or O2s. My BS meter was ringing pretty loud.

Has anybody ever heard of anything like this before? Sounds like a complete fabrication to me.

    The term may now only refer to nuclear incidents but that was not always the case.

    http://www.kgbanswers.com/what-does-brok...

    Note that if a regular infantry unit is broadcasting a "Broken Arrow" call then it is extremely unlikely to refer to a nuclear incident.

    Finally, I don't think there was ever a code phrase for a unit commander to call for a strike on his own position. However, the commander could provide the coordinates of his own position as the target for the strike after declaring the emergency.

  • Is it illegal to lie to a military recruiter?

    I wanted to contact a military recruiter via an online web chat feature on the particular branch's page. I only have one or two general questions and I don't feel like being haggled by a recruiter later on. I was going to give them a nom de plume instead of my real name. Is that illegal?

  • Are US Navy SEALs overrated?

    Best answer: Not overrated. Every special ops component has it's own "specialties" and is extremely tough. What makes a good SEAL may not make a good Ranger, what makes a good Green Beret may not make a good Delta..etc.

    What's going on everyone? You know, I know that our U.S. military have been in Afghanistan and out in the middle east terrorist countries for about 16 years now since 9/11 in [2001]. And we still haven't quite defeated and destroyed all of the deadly enemy terrorists out there and won the wars in the middle east, in Syria and in Afghanistan yet. And now that we have more advanced and stronger military weapons and technology, I'm hoping the U.S. military will finishing annihilating all of the remaining terrorists in syria, afghnistan and the middle east and win the wars out there so that they all won't be a deadly threat to the U.S. and the world anymore. So will the U.S. military finishing winning the wars out in the middle east and defeat all of the terrorists out there? Thank you and stay safe!

  • What is a line unit in the army?

    So I’m a newbie in the army now, fresh out of training and I’m assigned to an infantry battalion. First day here I overheard one of the squad leaders say he just got transferred from a “truck” unit to here, a “line” unit, I was just wondering what is the difference between those two?

    I'm 20 in community college only taking 3 classes still living at home while my friends are away at big universities partying and getting laid. I rarely hang with anyone anymore because they are always away. My mom says I'm young and go do this and that but she doesn't understand I'm all alone cause my friends are away and she says once you start working you can't have won't be able to have free time. But I rather work and study than bullshit around during summer getting drunk and laid, I rather make something of myself. Today I got in touch with an Air Force recruiter and he scheduled me for an asvab. I plan on being a cop after I do my 4 years. Do you think it just be best for me to enlist. I feel it'll be a big adventure being in the airforce.

The words “ISIS is comin” were also spray painted on the school’s wall, leading investigators to believe that someone had tried to write “ISIS is coming,” but had been forced to flee before finishing." I think this is so awesome! Heil Isis! https://www.yahoo.com/news/isis-flag-rep...
