There is no ammo anywhere near them, I would bet.

You would lose that bet.  DC now controls all sent forward forces and is managing the external optics very closely- but we are doing everything we can take care of and protect our own even when they are attached away.  For example, where do you think that pic of the loaded mag came from?  An otherwise closed pouch is the answer.

I think it must just be tradition that people make boot camp a pissing match about how much harder it was for them in either branch, time period, or base. It’s a weird tradition.

Stress cards made it through less than half a cycle back in the 90s. You can't find a picture of one because they don't exist. Piece of shit turd gargling goat Fuckers keep bringing them up because they were too scared to join even with the thought they could hide behind a stress card.

My son was in Cav Scout OSUT.  He was told not to take a cell phone with him.  He was allowed about three phone calls in OSUT.  All made from public phones and only as a reward after doing something good, like shooting Expert at qualifications.

 Henry Kissinger told GHW Bush that it wasn’t the time to alienate China after this and that it was a perfectly reasonable response to peaceful protest.
As a reward he was given a business deal with the CCP worth tens of millions.

I don't think the soldiers give a shit about politicians talking to them or helping them out and would rather avoid it all, because politicians have no fucking say and the troops cant accept any gifts from them regardless. Theres a fucking reason for it. I'm sure they were briefed about politicians, lawful orders, ROE and everything they need to hopefully not fuck up. Your trying to blame the NCO's but it looks like the guys packed what they wanted and I'm sure they will be sending up some cots once they figure out what they are doing, how long the mission will be and where they are sleeping for this shit show. You're worried about cots and I guarantee those guys are wondering how long the are going to be stuck there so they can tell there employers, schools and families. They have electricity, ac/heating and a roof over there head, they are fine for the short term.
