    So..."no boots on the ground", eh? Sounds like Obama is having a change of heart. Or maybe he's trying to scare ISIS a bit. I don't know, but I don't think those radical Islamists are the type to scare easily.

    In any event, if Obama decides to send these guys into combat, I hope to god he doesn't hold them back. These guys will kick ass and take names if he lets them.
    steadfast and loyal,send 4id over there,but it wont be as awesome since they already tore down saddams statue.


    well being a former soldier in 4id,i can say it could be worse,it could have been 1st cav messing up roe.

    during the initial iraq invasion in 03,3id and 4id made up the bulk of the forces.if they plan to fight in sysria and iraq against isis in the future,4id and other infantry divisions would be best suited if they planned a constant presence,due to logistical advantages,while units from bragg and benning arent as equipped for long drawn out wars without support from other units,they are rapidly deployable units,not standard infantry units.

    The Ivy Division is also the ones who pulled Saddam out of his hole like a worm.

    i was only in the aviation brigade of 4id(i begged numerous times to transfer even after 4id left fort hood)but ive heard all about it,i still remember the 4id march,and theres still the 4id memorial on fort hood long after 4id left,a new unit runs the building,but the memorial remains under orders of the post commander.

    While you are right that they were the unit that was there pulling security on that day they for sure not the ones who actually did the work of tracking or capturing him. Let's be honest here. Lol

    I'd guess they are more susceptible to damage but are also lighter and aid (some) mobility which would be a plus.

    Are they crap?
    They're probably not crap. I'm just a fan of tracks, but tracks have their shortcomings, too. Repairing a thrown track can turn into a real bugbear.

    Depends on who you talk to. I don't have any experience with the vehicle, so all I can do is relay the opinions of others. Here are some of them:

    Depends on where they are used...

    War, the military, COIN and stuff: Pros and Cons of Strykers in Afghanistan

    It's a piece of junk...

    Soldier views on Strykers should still count the most

    Sure...

    I think I'm being more honest than those who say Obama got bin Laden.
