MythDragon: RoxtarRyan: don't expect excellent results if you ask me to haul 300lbs of dead weight 50 miles only eating tree bark and drinking urine strained through a sock.

You AF pukes get a sock? Figures.


I once heard a joke about Army from one of my friends who got stuck working the gate at a Ft down south... "Heh.. lock your doors all you want, the Army can steal your socks without taking off your boots!"

Rangers are not equivalent to SEALS in the least,  submitter. For starters, they are not a Tier 1 Special Operations group under the command of USSOCOM, rather a regular unit of the US military designated to perform special missions. If you're wanting to compare the USNAVDEVGRU, Seal 6, with the army, you need to pull the First Special Operations Group, Detachment DELTA out of your hat.


They're pretty freakin' bad assed.

Of course, if you want to see people even more badassed than the SEALS or DELTA, you need to turn to the CIA's Special Activities Division, who exclusively recruit from Tier 1 organizations to do their work.

You know who's been in near constant battle since 1831?  Who are constantly given suicide missions and never complain?  They are also often deserted and have to find their way back but that's just part of the job.  These guys.

RoxtarRyan: lack of warmth: I heard Airforce has a special force now

They're called PJ's... the guys who go in under hostile fire to pull out casualties. They've actually been around for many decades.

Met some while in Kandahar. Badass guys... walls of muscle, and facial hair to appear like one of the locals. Heh... the first shirt told them that if they wanted to stay in the AF compound for more than a day, they would have to shave their beards, get haircuts and abide by AFI 36-2903. I have never seen a shirt, or really anyone, get chewed out like he did.


Forgive my ignorance... shirt? From the context, I gather it's a derogatory term for some pencil pushing Academy grad, possibly the son of someone influential?

Actually, it is a respectful and casual name for the unit's First Sergent.  Also known as "Top", "Shirt" or "First Shirt".  But some can be just as useless as the pencil pushing Academy grad.

give me doughnuts: When you jump off the ramp of a C-130 at night, and you are only 800 feet off the terrain, and you have a round chute, the only direction you are certain of going is down.

Also, when it is a training jump, and you are up a tall tree, you wait for people with climbing gear. Silly chances during training aren't worth taking. If it is a combat mission, then you and your squadmates will have to take care of it.


So much this....

I wasn't airborne.  I tend to think you have to be crazy to go airborne.  But I sure as hell am not going to fault them for catching a branch.  It happens a lot.  Those chute are designed to get you down as fast as you can survive and generally go straight down.  Wind is a pain tho'.  It's happened before with far worse results.
See here
and  here (this poor kids is like an ant on a kite.)

I also remember hearing about a airborne drop by the Soviets that was supposed to be a cakewalk but went very south due to high winds on the plateau they were assaulting resulting in the poorly armed defenders slaughtering them with cutlass's and short swords but I cannot find it and have to consider the possibility that it was just typical cold war scuttle butt.  Even then, the general feeling was "poor bastards!"

I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fark out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my farking words. You think you can get away with saying that shiat to me over the Internet? Think again, farker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're farking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps CORE and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shiat. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your farking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shiat fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're farking dead, kiddo.

brantgoose: To the best of my knowledge, no Navy has ever managed to attack a target half way into a Continent. I could be wrong. Perhaps the Swiss Navy has done it.

Therefore, I will say that Army is definitely better than Navy, seeing as I am at an altitude of about 246 feet and a distance from the sea of 800 miles or so, even with the Saint Lawrence being naviagable as far as Quebec City in the Winter.

The Navy could get to me, but they'd probably have to walk at some point. Getting a naval ship big enough to fire a missile or rocket at me through the rivers and locks that separate me from the sea would be iffy. I'm not saying the Navy couldn't get the job done, because I am sure they could, but the army has a serious edge, having more personnel and resources such as armoured cars and tanks within a short distance of me.

There are many countries with no navies, but even the smallest countries have had something approximating to an army (Liechtenstein and the Vatican City have  tiny military forces, Andorra gave up their tiny army because they are adequately protected by Spain and France, which jointly govern  Andorra.

An army is your first line of domestic and foreign defence as it can deal with natural disasters, peace time emergencies, and armed insurrection or invasion.

A navy becomes important only if you have a coast or some internal coastline.

An air force is good, but eventually you have to land on water or ground unless you have those flying fortress thingies they have in SF movies. Air forces don't deal well with "hearts and minds" because it is hard to get a B-52 bomber into narrow streets where the hearts and minds that most need to be courted live.

In short, go army, preferably far away until you are needed.


Yeah, because bin Laden was killed by the Navy Seals on the coast.

Chelsea Clinton Is Carrot Top's Lost Twin: maddogdelta// CSB, I once scared the shiat out of a bunch of SEALS when I told them that if they were in a shipping lane when a big freighter came through, their Itty Bitty Ship would be crushed and they would be shark food. The freighters aren't looking out for little people with glow sticks...And you can't karate chop a freighter... Worst. CSB. Ever /yah, I'm sure those SEALs were sooooo scared.//They probably were so scared they quit and joined the Marine Core.


Well, they did turn white, then they spent quite a bit more time planning their trip through long island sound, instead of trusting freighter on autopilot to get out of their way.

Did you suffer a head injury? Every country you named has a separate army, navy and air force. Just because the procurement and testing is done at the service level instead of the government level is semantics. All of them need each organization to test and implement their equipment, our military is large enough that it makes sense to do that at the top level. Either way it needs to get done at some level, unless you want the Army buying aircraft carriers.

"So what you ya'll feel about masturbation, mmkay?"

Now, you've heard about that "fight or flight" thing humans have? Mine was ringing loud as churchbells on Sunday morning. Against my gut, I stayed, because hell, what else was there to do other than play dodge-the-rocket?

"You see, we're not allowed to have sex while in a war-zone, even consensual, but a person has got to relieve themselves of certain human stresses, mmmkay? But being here, we worry about sanitation, mmkay?"

Technically, whatever Delta Force is calling itself now.  Delta is the top Green Berets.  SEAL Team Six is the top SEALs.

If it was a static-line jump, you really don't have much control.  You just kind of fall out of the plane, and hope the aircrew and Jumpmaster didn't miss the Drop Zone, or the weather boys didn't underestimate the crosswinds.

We have a saying (probably all the services have it) "There has only been one thief in the Army, Everyone is trying to get their shiat back"

I'll say this, the Army is good at aquiring things. Or as I call it "Government property serving the same function in a different location"

In Iraq, my company was split all over the country and there were only 8 people from my unit on Victory. So we often had to go on midnight acquisition runs. One day I show up on our site to see a HMMWV engine in a shipping crate. I ask our mechanic where it came from. He says "Found it."

On a later site visit our commander comes into our site tent to see a hand carved white wood couch with gold inlaid fibers and asks "where did you guys get this?" I tell him "Sir, you should not ask questions to which you don't want to know the answers to." He said "I see." and left it at that.

Full Disclosure:  my dad used to work for the AFRL.

I think you underestimate the amount of good inter-service cooperation that goes on when it comes to R&D.  It's not as if each service lives in its own world, and they recognize there's no budget for duplicative research, so they collaborate whenever it makes sense, or when one service has special equipment or expertise that the other's don't.  But they don't do jointness for jointness sake.  I remember my dad telling me about giving a presentation in Washington during a trade/info show, where the AFRL booth was right next to the Navy Labs booth.  Some congressional staffer came up and started going on about how both services were researching gas turbine maintenance, and how they should just consolidate and save money.  One of the uniformed Navy guys said that it wasn't a good idea.  The staffer asked why not, and the Navy guy said "because their gas turbine is meant to start a plane in two minutes, and our gas turbine is meant to power a cruiser for six months.  Different problem, different scale, different needs."

"You see, we're not allowed to have sex while in a war-zone, even consensual, but a person has got to relieve themselves of certain human stresses, mmmkay? But being here, we worry about sanitation, mmkay?"

We all laughed him out of the area. It was either that, or get handed a pamphlet on how to rub one out in a warzone without throwing rope all around the damn place.


That whole story was made better because I read it in Mr. Mackey's voice.  I had a couple good ones.  Certainly, the crappy ones (guy who implemented PT in the desert is tops in my list) make a more lasting impression.

Until they make bionic crab rangers. Then everyone is in trouble.

Charlie Chingas: Forced Perspective: Charlie Chingas: Forced Perspective: maddogdelta: Charlie Chingas: ///And it's Marine Corps

Old Fark meme... one farker tried to claim that he was a "soldier in the marine core"... and was, ahem, called out on his bullshiat.

He then blamed the "typo" on the fact that his wife was supposedly typing the post on his behalf.  Good times.  Anybody have a link to that thread?

No shiat? HA! Would love to see that thread myself. I don't normally brag about being in the Corps, but when someone misspells it, even Pocket Ninja, I must say something. To all my brothers out there reading this: OOH RAH!

I found it.  Enjoy:

The comment that started it all is "
I'd go for that. Iraq can be contained by the Army. Let the Core finish up in Afghanistan," by a user who had claimed to be a marine.  Things go downhill from there.

Wow... I'm... wow...


I also talked to some shiat to him, and he said I should cut him a break, as a "fellow soldier."  A Marine.  Calling himself a 'soldier.'

Pretty sure it's core.

Pretty sure you are wrong.   It is pronounced core, put it is spelled Corps


Pocket Ninja is so good, people get secondary bites off of his posts!

Internet tough guys that never served talking shiat on guys that most likely have all served in combat zones. shiat happens. We don't talk trash when you paper cut yourself at the copy machine or give a customer the wrong mocha latte.. .we might chuckle and thats it. And as for which force is better... well they all rock, all have different missions and its really not a fair comparison. Unless its uniforms. Then the Navy loses every time... with their amazing ocean colored camo...

Isn't a "bionic crab ranger" kinda like a Grotopotomus?
