    Non-Issue Kit Question

    Figured I would ask this here instead of making a new thread: 1) Is the CP gear Camelback allowed on BMQ/SQ? 2) What hearing protection is issued on BMQ? 3) If excellent hearing protection is not issued are you allowed to purchase higher quality ear protection for BMQ/SQ? Such as the Sonic...

    Reserve BMQ (Naval reserve)

    Reserve BMQ is around 30 training days according to the sheets. I have read on this site about people doing Regular BMQ but I believe that might only apply to Airforce Reserve.

    Israeli raid called off after Facebook slip

    Was briefed on this tonight. Pretty crappy situation but honestly how dumb can this soldier be? I am surprised the IDF hasn't banned it like the US Marines. I personally keep facebook at maximum possible security.

    A scary strategic problem - no oil

    Recent Warfare Technologies

    I watched an hour TV special on Wired for War and it was very interesting. However, the two biggest problems that was said were: 1) Computer glitches that kill friendly soldiers such as the anti-aircraft cannon robot in South Africa that had a glitch and leveled it's firing arcs onto friendly...

    Fireman Carry replaced by Casualty Drag

    I was actually looking forward to casualty carry as part of BFT. This dragging a person has got to be one of the more stupid things I have heard especially since those straps on the back of the tac vest will not hold a person's weight.
