Shostie: Wouldn't the Green Berets be a closer match to the SEALs?


Whatever, man. The green berets don't even know what color their berets are anymore.

Anyway, this is all a mute point. One highly trained soldier in the marine core is worth a dozen green berets.

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...


Yeah, I haven't quite figured that out either.  On a related note, you know why navy dress blues have that big old 13 button flap rather than a standard fly?


Ha.. well I know in the past with Army uniforms they chose buttons over zippers because it is quieter. Not sure why Sailors need quiet zippers....   ...... ......

We (the different services) rib each other, sure. Part of the fun, man. You can't take it too seriously though, and if you do, more than likely there are people who work with you who would rather not. That goes for the people who receive the ribbing, and the guy who actually believes the shiat he says. An asshole is an asshole, regardless of rank, duty station or service branch.

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.

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!"

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.

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.
