    When I was a kid, Russia under Kruschev invaded Hungary and several other countries. Obviously, at the end of WWII Russia made it all the way to Berlin.

    Russia was invited into Syria, unlike the US which committed military aggression, again, to get there and so much more of the Mideast.
    Is this topic hard for you to follow? The topic is the fight against ISIS, not every other place Russia has fought in. FYI, Russia was not invited to stay in the countries they overran in WWII, so much for your outrage over US actions.

    The entrenchment tool faux pas is what can happen when some English major kid at the copy desk where they write the headlines gets your copy and decides you need some grammar. A reporter worth his salt could respond by introducing the kid to an actual entrenching tool for real. If you know what I mean -- and you do. Then send him out for a foxhole plug.

    I've put in bold the entrenching tool part of the brief statement by SGM Troxell to his Facebook page. The right half of the photo with the entrenching tool is from the FB page SGM Troxell wrote.





    "If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.

    "HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools.

    "Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose how it's going to be."

    It works for me among many others here too.


    We know also that Command SGM Troxell is the senior enlisted advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and to the Secretary of Defense, appointed by Chairman General Joe Dunford of USMC. Indeed while the Faux article said he is Army command sergeant major, SGM Troxell is in fact in the Army and the killer for real who has five combat tours is the Senior Enlisted Adviser to the Chairman (SEAC).

    The technique of extreme prejudice btw might be to go at 'em with the entrenching tool flat to put the desert rat flat. Then put the entrenching tool at the 90-degree angle shown in the photo to start slicing and dic, er, beating. Beating the live and armed enemy with your tool isn't necessarily a war crime izzit. Waving your tool before you finish him off would be the way to go then. For sure.

    I see, 'ing' instead of 'ment'. Meh.

    They issuing Humvees to Abn Infantry in those days? Thought you ‘warriors’ jumped and marched....
    D company was heavy weapons, 11h. Humvees, mk 19s, 50s, TOWs. The humvees were dropped before us, so they don't land on us. On the ground, we remove the chute and get to it. We worked 'em hard, serious off road adventure; then someone else fixes them and pays for it, and we do it again.

    Youse knowledge of your own Army is limited so I am pleased and honored to inform. The tunnel vision over there also applies to the ceremonial guard units of all the armed forces in the Military District of Washington, the Joint Force Command National Capital Region.

    Here's one by an Old Guardsman. Y'see, we have a sense of humor besides....



    3rd Infantry Regiment Presidential Salute Battery of The Old Guard


    The video is of the Presidential Salute Battery of the 3 IR TOG, Ft. Meyer, Va. The brick houses you see across Summerall Parade Field are the homes of Pentagon generals who reside at Ft. Meyer. The view is from the Company E (Honor Guard Company) quarters of TOG. The Echo Company guyz of 2nd ptn doing the video from their bay tweak the Battery a round of their own (scattered and faint) applause at the conclusion. They noted the extraordinary number of rounds fired, 21 being the usual to include rehearsals or practice. Ask me sometime about the cleats on the heels and soles of TOG footwear -- the hollow wooden heels with metal strips on the inside that make the required sounds of clicking with the clomping that one hears clearly in this video.







    Live Fire Mortar Range - Presidential Salute Battery 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment The Old Guard


    Presidential Salute Battery of 3 IR TOG on the live fire mortar range Ft. A.P. Hill, Virginia.

    These boys are versatile if nothing else eh. Check out the mortar stuff old timer cause it's worth a few chuckles. I'd bet you thought at 0:25 the grunt wuz gonna put his face right on down into the tube to take a look around inside eh. This one's worth your look though cause youse can watch the grunt get his ass blown off firing one right at the end. Note too btw the Military District of Washington patch insignia at the left shoulder sleeve -- you can't miss it so I thought I'd ID it for youse.







    3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard)

    The Old Guard Remembers 9/11


    Armed patrols seen on Tuesday September 11, 2001 at Ft. Meyer Virginia next to the Pentagon and the billet of the Army 3rd Infantry Regiment. Note in the video the three troops of Company A Alpha of 3 IR who got the flag and delivered it to the Pentagon building to drape with Arlington County VA fellow first responders.


    SFC James Jones Delta Company, 1st Btn, 3rd Inf Rgt the Old Guard describing the company's arrival to the Pentagon as the regiment's advance force on the morning of September 11, 2001: "The scene there is one that will forever be etched in my mind. After 27 months in combat, it still remains as one of the most dramatic days that I've ever seen in my life."



    3rd Infantry Regiment the Old Guard arrives in full battle rattle at Pentagon September 11, 2001.


    The attacks on September 9/11 changed America forever. Many units responded to the fight on terrorism but only one Army unit was the first to respond to the attacks on the homeland. The Old Guard, America's oldest active infantry regiment, was the first Army unit on the scene at the Pentagon after the 9/11 attack.

    Your welcome thx.

    We recall that on 9/11 1st Battalion formed a security perimeter around the Pentagon. Fourth battalion got into protective suits and entered the Pentagon as search and rescue. Search and recovery continued to September 30th.


    Each winter during the off tourist season in the nation's capital The Old Guard 3rd Infantry Regiment goes to Ft. A.P. Hill in central Virginia for field training exercises. Sometimes the training venue is Ft. Indiantown Gap Pennsylvania. It gets cold out there for a couple of months lemme tell youse. And I wuz in TOG before there was night vision so during the many -- many -- night exercises you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. It's always Fun and Games in The Old Guard.

    The bottom line chief is that to do this you gotta have some Hollywood in ya. Lots of it in fact. I like to think of myself as carrying on in the Ronald Reagan tradition of making movies for the Army as Reagan did during all of WW II.

    I’m guessing he wouldn’t take too kindly to that.

    Gee, that strategy and those tactics have been in use for a number of years. It rotates the stock in ammo inventory, but otherwise has been a Major Disaster.
