    Why don't you?

    Off duty things were completely different in how the troops integrated.

    e.g. Fort Drum:
    Two clubs operated on post by AAFES. One called Spinners (music orientated), the other called Pennants (sports orientated), they both operated at night as dance clubs.
    Spinners was basically a black club, while Spinners was basically non black.
    Spinners had to be shut down because of the conduct of the black soldiers.
    The last straw was when they turned a car over in the parking lot and set it aflame.

    My understanding was that the club was shut down for some time after I left Fort Drum but has since reopened.


    e.g. MFO, Sinai Egypt.
    (An assignment that is so political that if the Sergeant Major is white, the majority of First Sergeants have to be non-white, and vise versa.)
    Each Military Contingent has it's own Club/Bar/Mess, the U.S.'s is basically black, seldom do you find U.S. personnel of a different ethnicity in the Bar and rarely do you find those from another Contingent in the U.S.'s bar.
    Not the same for the other Contingent Bars. (except maybe for the French, lol.)
    This indicates that your use of the term "successfully integrated" is subjective to say the least.

    Now if you would like to speak about what is generally unspoken of on duty
    that cause underlying tension between races, it would also be an indication that your use of the term "successfully integrated" is subjective to say the least.

    God, that is exactly what I've been thinking this entire thread.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    You may have a problem with your "clear type" because that font was designed to be easily read.
    Otherwise, you are just using it as an excuse.

    lol... maybe so (actually "absolutely!"), but we are the first in and we do most of the damage before other branches go in and finish the job.

    The Air Force can be given credit with ending the first Gulf War quickly. That includes gays who served then.

    Yeah, I liked the fact that the Army had to go in and clean up my mess.

    I hope you realize that since the font was designed to be easily read that your claims that it makes your head spin seem to be fictitious, unless of course your "clear type" isn't set accurately.
    Btw, sorry bout your cold.

    Anyone else think it's damned amusing that one of the banner ads for this thread is for GayMilitaryDating.com?

    And Coolguy, your font sucks. It is harder to read than the forum default, and in any case, multiple fonts on the page automatically contribute to readability issues.

    I've noticed that in the past too. I can't see it now because I'm a Platinum member, but in the past I have noticed that it does seem to take cues from certain key words and show banners based on the topics being discussed.
