Thank a Vet..its the least we can do - Veterans Day

For every warrior this country has had defend her, for every dad, brother sister, mom, for every spouse that has endured the sacrifice as their warrior goes away, we that have served know the true sacrifice and yet the honor that encompasses serving this country.  For those that came before us, those that serve now, thank you for our service. We wouldn’t be America, land of the free without you.  Semper Fidelis…Time for a C-Gar

 The below was received from a friend and I think it was very well done: I remember the day I found out I got into West Point. My mom actually showed up in the hallway of my high school and waited for me to get out of class. She was bawling her eyes out..

First-term Marines are slow to sign on for another enlistment


Why might you ask? Could it be that the Marine Corps had a policy of a 1:1 ratio of combat deployments to time back in the states and they have ran it into the ground? Could it be that the USMC is cutting at the cyclic rate and Marine would rather work for someone that is actually going to keep them around....and pay them better?? Could it be that Marines are simply fed up with how the military is being lead in Washington? You make your own conclusions...

The Marine Corps is making slower progress towards re-enlistment targets for fiscal year 2016. As of Oct. 5, just over 33 percent of targeted first-term boat spaces were filled compared to 53 percent at the same time last year, according to Marine administrative message 490/15.

US reportedly considers leaving thousands of troops in Afghanistan beyond 2016

Afghanistan September_Cham640360

Amazing, your warriors have been restricted so much that they haven't been taking the fight to the enemy but staying on their bases due to rules of engagement by this administration. Now, especially after the news of the "Retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who was picked by President Barack Obama last year to lead a coalition fight against the Islamic State, will step down from his post in early November"  because,Allen's frustration with the way the White House is micromanaging the war effort".

How can it be anymore clear that this administration is simply putting this war on hold while your warriors pay the sacrifice? Now they are saying that we need to stay there well after 2016. Well of course we do, if we want to win because we haven't done dick since this president took over and that boys and girls is how the enemy gets stronger and organizations like isis are built.  Read more here Time for a C-Gar


obama allows illegals into the military


You may have heard where Obama has allowed “illegals” to join the military.

Ok, before all you Obama lovers attack me, get your facts straight, yes Pres George Bush initiated Military Accessions Vital to National Interest program (MAVNI) during the Iraqi war In December 2008. The Defense Department announced a pilot program to temporarily allow certain legal aliens who were doctors or nurses -- or could speak certain in-demand languages such as Haitian-Creole, Chinese or Farsi OR had special skills to aide our military-- to join the military. (Spanish is not on the language list.)

We hump til we die - Mt Mother F'er

Trailer for Ears, Open. Eyeballs, Click. on TrailerAddict.

Joining my beloved Marine Corps isn’t a free ticket. You don’t get a free pass because we need you. We would rather go to war with 100 dedicated fighters than 10000 place holders (hello Army). Boot camp is where Marines are made. It is not easy, if it was easy, everyone would be a Marine and for those of you thinking about joining my beloved Corps, know, it is never easy being green.  Usually about the first 48 hours even the most motivated recruit asks him/herself “what the hell did I get myself into”.

Marine General Joseph Dunford chosen as Joint Chiefs chairman

This has got to be a record of shortest time as Commandant of the Marine Corps. The General is a first class officer. I served with him in Iraq and he was always top notch. The kind of leader when things were bad you could look at and feel better about the situation. Time for a C-Gar


The move cuts short Dunford's service as the commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, a job he began last October. But the rapid promotion is one of several that have marked Dunford's fast-tracked military career, which saw him leap from a one-star brigadier general to four stars in about three years.

Amphibious Reconnaissance and Scout Sniper Marines from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit train combat marksmanship with Marines and Navy SEALS from the Republic of Korea and Royal Thai Marine special forces. Marines of the MEU's scout sniper platoon led a brief period of instruction before all parties fired at multiple targets ranging from 100 to 400 meters. This a little old video but shows the skill and cooperation Marines display wherever they travel - Time for a C-Gar
