    I thought that the British went after the rigging to make it easier for their gunners to shoot holes in the hulls so as to let the water in.

    Just about everything I have read says the British would first go after the hull and cannons.

  2. French tactics were exactly that - dismantle the rigging, knock down masts, etc.  British tactics were to shoot holes in the hull and dis mantle their opponents artillery - and let the water in...

    I started to say that this girl is completely nuts, but then remembered that I have done a few very similar things and decided not to throw rocks from my glass house. 

    Still nuts and we hope she doesn't have a hard lesson from it....

    All the clubs that I have shot with - MDQ - you're done!


    Most pards that have gotten them stayed and helped with posse duties. Very few left in a huff.

    Same here.  And haven't had anyone take it wrong.

    She won’t be going to flight school anytime soon, that’s why she’s going to Harvard. BTW, it’s very common for service academy grads to attend post-graduate school outside the military. And very few USAFA grads are selected for flight training anyway. The vast majority have careers not directly related to aviation. 

    Hope you’re not being critical. She’s an impressive woman regardless of her looks. 

    I am being critical to a point.  People who attend our military academies need to get in the trenches and serve as the leaders they are supposed to be.  Shouldn't be allowed to have their obligation changed or shortened because of being able to play a sport or win a beauty pageant.  The only reason the academies exist is to provide officers for their various branches.

    “Miss America” has a busy schedule. I wonder how that will clash with the Air Force.

    Won't matter for a while.  She's at Harvard getting her master's degree.  Hasn't even been to flight school yet.   Sure glad we paid for her education....

    I made my own version of this. I had just parked my bike at work and walked out to talk to a guy. As I turned I saw how my bike was parked and I remembered the meme above and made my own.

     LOL Graf would do it for sure , was stationed there so ranges ect where there and down I ran the live shoot house for about a year . When we deployed they sent us to Honenfels just to make it different . We destroyed their OpFor  they sent us home 5 days early and made the rest of company stay there to train .

    Graf - one foot in mud, one foot in snow and dirt blowing in your face.  My favorite Graf story was talking with my German landlord about it.  He was in Rommel's command and trained at Graf in the 1930s.  Same stories we told, separated by 40 years.

    WTH is up with these stupid ****ing so-called battle cries by the Army and Navy. I knew about the Marine “Oorah” for a long time, but now I see the Navy supposedly has a call of Hooyah? Bull Crap!

    My guess is a bunch of whiney douchbag new ensigns and 2nd lieutenants got dare wittle feewings huht because Marines had a battle cry and they didn’t. 

    Don't know about the Navy, but the Army "hooah" has been around as long as the Marines cry.  I can remember it from about 40 years ago, just never thought much of it.
