    astonishingly, the same article had a picture of Air Force personnel and an interview with navy engineers. The point was only that Fagan was wrong when he said we would be sending a regiment of infantry.

    I'm wondering why medical personnel is a bad thing to be if Ebola is the reason they're there. Why call them Construction people? This entire thing is unusual....

    When did the Air Force started requiring airmen and airchicks to have bar codes on their heads.

    Isn't that what the guy in the orange vest doing, reading bar codes ?

    Greetings, APACHERAT.

    Thanks for asking that question...I was about to ask what the orange vest guy was doing, since it looked like what the workers in grocery stores do when checking shelves....

    Good question. It may be a chip scanner. But why would the DOD permit civilian and/or foreign nationals reading/recording any information concerning US military personnel? There has to be a logical explanation of what that guy is doing.

    LOL, okay. Most of those going to Africa will be medical personnel. There may be some infantry to provide security. But everything done over there will be under the medical personnel direction. I just thought it was funny with Navy construction battalion above a picture of a bunch of Air Force folks.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's what it looks like.

    I noticed the the European militaries aren't ordering their service members to go to Africa to fight Ebola, they are asking for volunteers.

    He's checking body temperatures. Everyone coming in and out get's checked, as high fever is (apparently) one of the early signs of the virus.

    I remember when Navy Sea Bees were able to provide their own security and they were good at it. Probably why they were known as the "Fighting Sea Bees."

    I remember back in 69 when I was going through 2nd ITR at Pendleton there was about 300 Navy CB's going through individual infantry training.

    Makes sense since the Africans are now saying that the Ebola virus was developed by the USA to be used in germ warfare.

    They said the same thing about AIDS.
