Afghanistan? Never heard of it! Is it one of those newly formed countries in Africa? No! I remember! It’s somewhere in South America isn’t it? :roll:

Re: "Here and there with the 31st Infantry"

Niner, you lost me on this one “the eventual redemption in later wars”. Where have we redeemed ourselves? Certainly not Vietnam, Iraq, or Afghanistan.

You made your reservations for the 2021 31st Regiment Reunion yet? :)

Re: My thoughts shared with Bob Borino

My last 3 months I was a was assigned to work with the ARVN to improve communication with the 6/31st. I worked with a really good ARVN sergeant and I asked him about his being promoted to Lt. He said that it would never happen because his family did not have enough money to pay for the promotion. I ...

I agree. It’s very clear that Congress has no interest in controlling our entry into wars, conflicts or whatever one wants to call them.

This is an email that I sent to Bob Borino concerning our frequent discussions about the Vietnam war. Doesn’t seem to be any action on the website lately.

Re: The political trial

Even if the Lord Jesus Christ were the lead prosecutor, the spineless GOP senators, cowards that they are, would never vote to convict Trump. Most are afraid that, if they did, Trump would put them on his hit list the next time that they are up for re-election. The worst of the lot are those like Cr...

Re: Mob at the Capitol

I can’t believe that our military leaders are trying to determine whether or not to let some or all of the National Guard troops, who will be sent to DC to protect against projected future mob violence, be armed. By all indications, the FBI is expecting numerous armed militia units to gather in DC. ...

How can anyone, including Trump supporters, agree with Trump when he says that he was not in anyway at all responsible for the Capitol being attacked?????

31st Regiment 2021 Reunion

From the present state of the COVID-19 pandemic, I would think that chances of the 31 Regiment 2021 reunion happening are slim to none. It is so difficult for me to understand how the distribution of the vaccine has been such a disaster. We put men on the moon in 1969 and we can’t distribute the mil...

Senate Majority Leader

I do not understand how the Senate Majority Leader can be so powerful. By being able to control whether or not he will allow a Bill to be presented to the Senate for a vote. In other words, if he doesn’t like a bill, he just sits on it. When you consider that the House has over 400 members and the S...

These Supreme Court nominee interview sessions are a total waste of time and money. (1) The nominee avoids answering the “sensitive” questions, and ever if she were to answer them truthfully, it would not make a difference. (2) With the GOP controlling the Senate, the nominee’s approval is guarantee...

However, we didn’t get even a handful of men signing into the guestbook. One thing, however, is very clear....you have provided, hands do...
