July 1975, President ford visited us on 'The Rock' Ayers Kaserne FRG. 1stBde, 3AD. ALL arms locked in the arms room, ALL keys turned into BDE, ALL arms 100% accounted for. NO ONE allowed in the barracks lest they get a shot from an upper floor. It was our first and last BDE annual picnic.
I was unaware that Marines draw their weapons each and everyday, I guess even the clerks and jerks draw theirs and keep them by their lap tops???
And FYI our nation was divided severely during Vietnam, the great anti-trust fights, the great depression, entry into WWII, the farmer's movements in the 1880's...
it is very unsettling to see some go from coded messages like 'protect the Founder's DNA' to the racial taunts and the Muslim thing as a war cry of some sort
