My service in the military being called into question because I don’t disagree with enhanced background checks, limits on high capacity mags, and more money funneled into mental health support.
I know there’s going to be a large segment of you that are going to go off the handle, and claim armageddon, and civil war, and blah blah blah blah…
But read this. It’s the actual Bill the President has put forth. As someone who ardently believes in the 2nd Amendment, and someone who owns guns - there is nothing in this I take issue with at all.
Those who claim this is an infringement on their rights, or claim this is an attack on their freedom, or “they took our jobs!” aren’t to be trusted and probably have tiny dicks.
This is the part where
“… against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
is going to get very important.
Talk about missing the forest for the trees.
My wedding day! 10/22/2011! #husband #wife #bestfriends #soulmates #foreverandalways #militarylove <3 <3
Tell that dirtball Soldier to take his cover off indoors!
AR 670-1 Chap. 1 Para 1-10(K)(2): Soldiers will not wear headgear indoors unless under arms in an official capacity or when directed by the commander, such as for indoor ceremonial activities.
PLEASE READ THIS
For those of you who haven’t heard, our elected officials believe that our military who are deployed overseas don’t have a need for breakfast anymore, and our troops found out the hard way they were being denied such effective today.
“There are signs posted on the chow halls [saying that breakfast will not be provided], then once inside, I asked the girl that checks the cards if we were getting no HOT meals and just cereal etc or nothing, and she told us no, the halls will be locked, and they were. Most soldiers found out by showing up this morning and finding the chow halls locked. We got a days notice, no MRE’s, nothing. It would make sense to cut the LUNCH chow out or at least down to just cold meat sandwiches, cause when on mission, most don’t ever seen lunch. That Day’s Notice, was just a sign on the chow hall. If you didn’t go to a chow hall yesterday or hear, you were surprised. I had grabbed stuff last night, apples, oranges, v8 and snacks, but a lot of soldiers didn’t.”
‘In another message, the soldier explained that defense budget cuts in the bill recently passed to avoid the fiscal cliff are apparently the reason that breakfast will no longer be served. As an American who believes that our troops deserve the full support of the country they are fighting to protect, I must adamantly express my disapproval for this “no breakfast” policy and urge Congressman Wolf to change it. I do not know if this policy is widespread throughout Afghanistan or if it is only affecting a few bases, but to be blunt - one base is one too many. The soldiers in this particular unit are combat engineers — it is their job to go before the infantry to clear the route of IEDs. How can they be expected to have the sharpness of mind and strength of body required for such a dangerous & demanding job if they are not provided a solid meal at the beginning of the day? Also, what message is Congress sending our soldiers by taking away a such staple of everyday life—breakfast? It’s a message the conveys a lack of support, awareness, & gratitude for the dangerous, sacrificial work that they are doing. And that is an absolutely unacceptable message for our brave soldiers to receive.’
What the fuck? They’re not giving our joes in Afghanistan breakfast anymore?
IF IT’S ON THE INTERNET, IT MUST BE TRUE - YEA?
A couple of the bases I was on didn’t serve breakfast either (that was 2 years ago). We didn’t have the resources to sustain a full breakfast. So we made PB&J’s, or we had MRE’s, or whatever. It’s a fucking combat zone. You shouldn’t expect three full hot meals a day.
Fucking christ Tumblr is the bastion of all things over-reactionary and stupid.
Nope, I am non-deployable for two years (I signed a stabilization memo as a condition of me coming back in.)
Yup. These are my friends.
If this is some sick joke about the NHL lockout, I will track you down and ruthlessly murder you.
Only if you’re a hot girl, this ain’t no sausage party.
New York Shitty.
On the train back to Boston from Philadelphia. I’m angry at my work for sending me someplace so awful I had to travel through New York and New Jersey to get there.
I need a shower.
At least I didn’t get herpes?
Did I mention I’m back in the Army? Well, not yet, but it’s in the process. Paperwork, you know. It’s only the Reserves, but I’ll be picking up Captain soon, and its extra money I could use (as the wife and I are buying a house soon). But yea. The allure of what I left was too much. I missed it, and now I’m back in it.
