Every day the 101st isn't out on the range or in the field training for combat but instead sitting in sensitivity training classrooms or building hospitals in Africa, it lowers the combat efficancy of the 101st or any other combat unit that's not training for war. If you ever read the MacArthur Papers, Douglas touched on that, every day a soldier isn't training for war, the more he will bleed and die in combat.
The 101st Airborne is a U.S. Army modular light infantry division trained for air assault operations. The division was renowned for its role on D-Day. Major General David H. Petraeus (“Eagle 6″) led the Screaming Eagles to war in 2003 during Operation Iraqi Freedom.....snip~
Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.....snip~
Exactly.....and our troopers will be exposed to an area wherein it is the source and hot zone. Any objects handled or touched, huh?
Are you aware that half of the medical people in Liberia have been infected and died? Do you know what these people do with their dead? Their rituals and beliefs?
What ever happened to the Peace Corps ? It's what liberals joined to avoid the Army during the 60's.
It is truly unbelievable how silly the drones are about gobbling up anything Obama spews forth. Although, this is probably as much a function of their hatred for the military, as it is about their hive collective mindset.
