How does a 30.06, a 30-30, a .308 and a Creedmore compare? I'm fairly familiar with the first two, not so much with the latter ....

And I'm 50/50 on this one...
July 5 2017 VA will accept Bad paper discharged veterans in Emergency rooms.
Ww1, WW2, Korea, panama, Grenada, Desert Storm, Somalia...
Not too many bad paper discharges,
but now a bad conduct discharge can lead to VA benefits if it's played right..
"a loud noise scared me and now I can't function..I refused to listen to my sergeant and got a bad conduct discharge, on the bright side I didn't deploy to Iraq again with the sergeant and my company which was what I wanted and now I can possibly get paid 3,000 dollars a month and get free healthcare? Better than the lottery baby!!!" if you claim any bad conduct discharge was related to PTSD,TBI voila you get free emergency health care which can lead to it being reverted to an honorable discharge and veterans benefits if you claim disability and I know of one person who is getting 100% disability based solely on PTSD. Hmm, the new military benefits entitlement system.

Sounds like Obama buddies changed the policy to help out their like minded zombies.

Saw in an article, Navy veteran of three tours on an Aircraft carrier claims someone is stealing her sign to be courteous with fireworks near her house...
Exactly how many times
1.did her bunk explode, {no vehicles on a flight deck}
2. did she engage in bunk to bunk fighting, {no buildings either}
3. Had to eat MREs (not likely on a carrier)
4. Call in close air support.
5. Subjected to harrasment and interdiction fire by mortars?
6. Shot at randomly


Ok I'm calling B.S. on this one.

VA really needs to READ the service members service records.
Not picking on squids: they have SEALS, EOD and Medics who routinely go into harms way.

The article just stated she served on an aircraft carrier but not her job on it. Potato peeling isn't dangerous, neither is gassing or loading weapons onto a plane if you follow the rules..Oh it's dangerous to walk around on a flight deck, but if you get hit by a F-18 taking off. It's really because you had your head up your....butt.

I would guess number six on your list, except she was fired on by bottle rockets and afraid it will happen at her house in the civilian world and won't have a commanding officer to protect her.hahahaha

Chicagostan 101 shot 15 killed over 4th of July weekend. Even British General Gage would not have tried to fight in that City, Boston was bad in 1775...

Chicago is making the roaring twenties look like child's play with the crazies shooting up enemies.
It's a WAR zone.

Ok, politics, time and patience are expended.
North Korea has a hydrogen bomb
http://www.breitbart.com/national-se...gen-bomb-test/
A hydrogen bomb is from ten to a hundred times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb.
It's a State killer, not a city killer.
If lil Kim has one, Iran will have one with the year.

I hate war. I have three combat patches, from Panama and the Gulf, to Somalia not only did I see the destruction I participated in it and it is not pretty.
Through it all I kept thinking "If WW2 soldiers, Marines and sailors could get through that and continue, I can get through this."
But this cannot happen, the munchkin leader with a hydrogen bomb? The unstable warrior has only ONE declared enemy. Russia and China are not under the gun. The UN is useless.
They actually would like to see the US taken down a notch
I'm saddened to say I would not like to see a ground war in Korea. History shows the NK army is as fanatical as any banzai screaming Japanese suicide charging soldier in WW2. It would be a meat grinder lasting years if not decades.
President Trump is now literally sitting where Harry Truman was. He has to make a horrible decision, the deployment of nuclear weapons to destroy the reactors, missile sites and leadership bunkers in North Korea.
With two sons and a son in law serving I'm the last person who wants war.
Better to end it in a day.

My step son just was sent to South Korea this past Monday for a years tour of duty, his mother is pretty upset with the crazy antics of the little fat dictator in North Korea and what could possibly happen to the south.
