"Meeting the Media"

The Army's helpful guide to dealing with the fourth estate. With commentary, of course.

After Action Review

A wise LT once said, "Stabbing your instructors is not an approved method of classroom criticism. The Army tends to prefer AARs." Fine, sir. We'll do it your way.

Slashdot makes me cry

I forget about April Fool's Day. It ranks somewhere below Arbor Day on my personal list of important holidays. I am mildly amused by Slashdot today, but I hope it goes away soon. My eyes bleed. The article discussing the "new design" has some pretty amusing comments, though.


Mentioned by name

Apparently, at a recent team leader meeting it was revealed that our state National Guard's commanding general and command sergeant major were here on Bagram, and people interested in having dinner with them who are not Sig were encouraged to volunteer.

Ha, I say, for it has proven true again.
