I think this is a good point.
In the days prior to CADPAT and Tacvests and beards one of the soldiers got sick and puked in the field.
He claimed it was from a hamburger from the platoon canteen that made him sick.
Canteens were no longer allowed to sell products that had to be cooked on a stove.
I was on a few of the Rite Simple exercises with 1 CBG HQ and Sig Sqn. As a crayon eating infantry type in the Sqn D & E Platoon it wasn't a bad gig. Not a great one or a jammy one but we were looked on as SMEs on subjects like land nav and winter warfare as well as a few other infantry type...
I have met this Colonel in Chief several times. She has always made time to say hello to my wife and I, and other families of the fallen. Edit to add: actually she sits down with Shirl and they have a short chat. I keep my mouth shut.
She hits the nail on the head. In my mind its sacred ground.
My opinion - as a former RSM who is supposed to be a "dinosaur" I was often seen with my hands in my CAPDAT jacket pocket - the warm fluffy lining was great. Now mind you it was normally in the field that people saw me like this - with cam paint and a rifle as well.
I didn't think so. SO my question is and I am sure many others have a similar question(s):
1. What did the documents relate to?
2. Who was responsible for the custody and security of said documents?
3. WHY WERE THEY AT A PRIVATE RESIDENCE AND NOT LOCKED UP -Like they should be.
Ok I looked at the warrant and the receipt for seized items. I may not know much but I do know you never phuque with classified documents - or take them home. WTF were they thinking?
Or have I misread something...
