    US Warrant Officers

    Having been trying to memorize the US rank system for a little while now, I‘ve come across a little snag. I‘m trying to figure out how Warrant Officers fit into the grand scheme. As far as I can tell, they don‘t appear to be commissioned, but are not enlisted either. They seem to be their own...

    Red/ Green/ White Poppies- Does The Colour Matter?- Merged

    A new kind of poppies were introduced with a black center to more effectively reflect the look of a real poppy. Which do you prefer? Do you like the black center (new) or the green center (old)?

    The Personal Weapons Test (C7 PWT)

    Got a quick question. My unit is going to be doing a range ex in the near future, and we‘re all doing the PWT (personal weapons test). Now, I was told that because I‘m a medic and not in the infantry, that I don‘t need as high of a score to pass, and that it‘s far easier for me to get crossed...
