    How Marines Feel About Their Gear

    The Marines have done away with the M500.  They now use the M1014 automatic shotgun although a few M500 may be kicking around in some places.  The Navy still uses the M500. PJ D-Dog

    Navajo Marine Granted Objector Status

    A chaplain's aid or any equivalent does not exist in the Marines.  These are jobs that are held by Sailors in support of the Marines.  He would effectively have to get out of the Corps and then join the Navy in order to do that.  Additionally, the Marine Corps cannot force anyone to do an...

    Canadian Soldier Joins U.S. Ranks to Create a Better Life

    Further to my last post on this topic, I contacted the US Army public affairs shop in Iraq and in return, they contacted Cpl Foster to clarify which unit he belonged too in the Canadian Forces.  He was part of 3 RCR, 3 Commando from 1990-1993.  So in the end, he was part of the Canadian Special...

    US Lower Recruiting Standards

    Just to clarify this a little bit, the citizenship is available only if you want it.  There is no obligation to be naturalized to remain in the military.  I know because I did it.  Additionally, to my knowledge, there is currenlty no way to enter the US military without a green card.  I know...

    Marine to Receive Medal of Honor for Heroism in Iraq

    For a daily news update from the Navy, check out this link for Cpl Dunham.  I wrote the copy for this story since I covered it at the Pentagon last week (the second link below for daily news update).  After being awarded the Medal of Honor, he was inducted into the Hall of Heroes.  A longer...

    Canadian Soldier Joins U.S. Ranks to Create a Better Life

    I tend to agree that some people are quick to criticize.  There is no mention of JTF.  One can only assume that he was in the Rangers up in the Canadian north.  One thing to remember is that Army public affairs are not big on total accuracy although I can understand that the journalist probably...

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    All electronic and print media is based on second-hand stories related through someone.  Any basic journalism course will teach you this.  This forum is a type of a reporting tool.  We have testimonials of those who have first hand accounts of events and we have those who relate "second-hand...

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    Thanks for the clarification but I too am a Marine Corps Primary Marksmanship Instructor (PMI).  I agree with what is being said but the point that I am making is the fact that a Major in the Royal Canadian Air Force deployed to A-Stan and only shot five rounds as part of his rifle qual.  I've...

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    This is exactly the point I was trying to make earlier.  Everyone's experience is different whether some want to believe it or not. PJ D-Dog

    Thanks George....I only entered this debate because Fez was acting on information that we had discussed on a few occasions. PJ D-Dog

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    There is only one Marine in my Company who worked with Canadians overseas.  I am only representing one view because it is the only one I have knowledge of to represent.  I have no vested interest in dumping on CF soldiers.  I was one for 11 years.  Just because I moved south of the border...

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    You can have all the serious doubts in the world that you want.  I got this information first hand from people who went through it.  The thing to understand here is the fact that your experience may not be the same as another soldier's experience due to when you went over or what was being done...

    Correcting the continuing ignorance regarding the NDP (& shots on the Conservatives)

    I am making this post to clarify some information, which might have been accidentally misrepresented, and to come to the defense of Fez who is new to this forum. You have all had a chance to flame him to death and since the topic is inflammatory, I’m not surprised at the results.  One thing we...
