Stuff and Things
We'll follow it with some guys from 1st Brigade, 3rd ID being, well, Joes. They got an excuse to shoot the Mk-19, so they not only did so, but filmed it and stuck it up on the internet. I'm not so sure it was a good idea, but it looks like no serious OPSEC violations were committed, so I'll link to 'em.
There's a couple MNC-I stories I'd like to call attention to, one about IP Recruiting and one about Baghdad.
Compare and Contrast with the Mainstream Media. If these yoiks can't figure out how to write a negative news story, that's OK. You can write a news story more or less neutral in slant, and then the editor can slap a totally bogus headline on it that has nothing to do with the actual story. H/t to Castle Argghh! (link to the right) who linked to Fuzzilicious Thinking.
Also on Fuzzilicious Thinking is one of those stories making the rounds about military families. :) To be fair, not all our Joes comes out of homes like that, but most of the best ones do.
Finally, a heartwarming tale of an amusing prank which, the Royal Family swears, has NOTHING to do with Subaltern Windsor being sent to Iraq.
