does anyone subscribe to "[service] Times"?
By that I mean the hard copy editions of the Army Times and all. I pick through the Army Times at the register whenever I go to a PX, and briefly had a print subscription to the Marine Corps Times years ago when I was in the USMCR. Half a year of the print edition is $28, I figure I have wasted that much on lesser things (like my last trip to the movies).
I got a 1 year subscription for $10 like 2 years ago, and they have yet to quit sending them.
when they do stop, I won't buy them.
I enjoy the Pvt Murphy cartoons and the opinions section, but 9 times out of 10 the stories on the front are shit that I already know or are complete conjecture that they're blowing out their ass to sell papers.
I used to have a subscription years ago, but gave it up when Fred Reed stopped writing for them.
hate that rag
I think my sub was 20 for the 6 months or a year
i usually buy them when i am at the px at full price(-10% AAFES/px price) so not bad has some info and is usually good for 10-15 minute overview
the early bird brief on ako is similar
AF Times is pretty much people bitching about this or that. While I do read it if someone bought the latest issue I will not pay for it.
I usually wait and read the ones at the staff duty desk. There's always good reading material there. I don't see the point in paying for a magazine that is full of half truths and boring articles.
According to them I should have been carrying an XM-8 like two years ago, they said it was a done deal.
