Slavery the ever present popular hot button word , there hasn't been slavery in this Country in a 150 years that's half as long or longer than this Country has been in existence and do you know what group screams the loudest ? you got it the liberal whites .

Your profile says 3 years btw, might want to update it if that is the case. 6 years and only an E4? Hmmm...

Are you REALLY this thick headed? If you want tge founding fathers' values, you don't get to pick and choose which ones. The sad truth is that the founding fathers of this country were slave owners. The founding fathers were far from perfect. But since we're going with their values, we'll take away a woman's right to vote or own property. Women voting was definitely NOT a value of the founding fathers. He did not say a small central government running things. He said go back to the ways of the founding fathers.

Who said I know everything, you seem to make enough bold, unsubstantiated statements for all of us. I'm just asking for clarifications. YOU put 3 years on YOUR profile...WTF do you expect? Your ineptitude in filling out a basic profile is actually supporting what WE are saying...you are terrible at getting your point across and you leave A LOT to interpretation.

I tell my subordinates and cadets that interpreted orders will get you interpreted results every time...the same applies here. Most, or even all of the people here, are not interpreting things that you post in the way you mean for them to be interpreted. Instead of clarifying things, you're an a**hole about it. Actually, you're pretty much an a**hole in general.

Also, regarding Tet...you should clarify, you DIDN'T get to go everywhere...perhaps in III Corps you did, maybe even into areas of IV Corps...but according to what you wrote, you never made it up to the Central Highlands or the DMZ. According to the research I've done, the longest and hardest fighting occurred in I Corps, not just during Tet either.

If casualties are a measure, May of 68 was actually worse than Tet...guess where over 50% of the casualties came from during Tet AND during mini Tet in May...you guessed it, I Corps. Just a little food for thought.

Why would you allow your happiness to be controlled by events. These events make many Americans proud, but don't control my well being. This doesn't make sense. Your happiness should result from achievements, family, knowing you did your best.
Also what does that have to do with facing a problem head-on. That's often the best way to tackle a problem is straightway, but it has nothing to do with your earlier happiness statement. Try and gather your thoughts and use the edit function. On occasion my post need correction so I EDIT THEM

10 level skills are covered from E-1 to E-4.

20 level is E-5

30 level is E-6

40 level is E-7

At E-8/9 you lose the "Bravo" identifier and become a "Zulu" or a Senior Sergeant.

According to AR 611-1 it has been that way for about 50 years...

ALSO

You're is a contraction of you are. It has no other uses. This is a 100% rule. If you cannot expand it to you are in your sentence, then it is wrong.

The word your sits before another word (usually a noun or a pronoun) to show that it belongs to "you" (e.g., your car, your arm), is of "you" (e.g., your picture, your photograph) or is related to "you" (e.g., your uncle). It is possessive and an adjective.

So if you want me to nit pick, I could do it about YOUR terrible grammar, which YOU'RE clearly unaware of which reflects on a lot of other things outside of YOUR grammar. <<<<Now that's nitpicking.
