Day No.2 for the 27th Infantry Battalion team representing the Irish Defence Forces in the United States Army Sniper School's 14th International Sniper Competition in Fort Benning, Georgia; There were two main tests during the day, testing the physical and mental competencies of some of the worlds military's best sniper teams. The first event was a 'Know Your Limits' shoot in which competitors must engage multiple targets at unknown distances in order to score. However if a shooter fails to hit a target all points accumulated are lost. Therefore the team must know their individual limitation and their weapons limitation before taking a shot. The second event of the day consisted of a pistol shoot which is the sniper's secondary weapon. Despite the soaring heat and close humidity of the American Deep South, both members traversed along several target bays and engaged targets at different range, size and speed with great skill and prowess.

So the people will know… Please help us seek JUSTICE for our loved ones STATEMENT of the Family of Arnold B. Jaramillo on the CONDUCT OF THE AFP’s OPERATIONS IN LACUB ABRA ON SEPT. 4 2014 No words can express the grief of our family over the loss of our beloved ARNOLD “AJ” B. JARAMILLO. But we are not simply grieving for AJ, we are deeply disturbed and enraged by the manner of his death. AJ was killed in an alleged encounter with the military on September 4, 2014 in Guinguinabang, Lacub, Abra. The 41st Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army claimed responsibility for AJ’s death reporting that he was a casualty during a gun battle with the New People’s Army (NPA). The chief of the Northern Luzon Command even declared that, to quote, “It’s confirmed he was among the slain rebels. We scored big in this particular encounter against the NPA.” However, our family finds it hard to believe that what transpired was actually an encounter, considering the autopsy report. Since the time A ...

Militants of the Nigerian Islamist group seized the wife of Cameroon's vice prime minister and killed at least three people on Sunday in an attack in the northern town of Kolofata involving more than 200 assailants.

I am taking a shot at a book review of the Nyquist book, of the shoot me any suggestions you may have. 99th Battalion: The long way home. Available in Hard and soft cover, the 2014 edition is a new English Translation with greatly expanded illustration section.

For the first time available to the English reading public is an oral history of one of the most unusual units in WWII.

Today on the 70th anniversary of the Allied D-Day landings in WWII, we remember our brave military forces that sacrificed it all. Louisiana's 156th Infantry Regiment played a role in Operation Overlord, the World War II Allied invasion of Normandy. The regiment was ordered into federal service in November of 1940. It trained at Camp Blanding, Florida and Camp Bowie Texas. In 1942, after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into the war, the 156th was sent to England. 2-156th, with companies largely from Acadiana, split off and landed in Oran, Algeria where they were re-organized into the 202nd Infantry Battalion and worked as military police due to their ability to speak French. The remainder of the regiment was assigned to the U.S. Assault Training Center in Woolacombe, England, where they trained combat units for amphibious landings, securing beachheads, and other tactics necessary for the coming Normandy invasion. When the invasion began, the 156th was assigned the mission of security ...

It denotes the courage and gallantry by the officers and men of the unit in internal security operations and their unceasing quest for peace and prosperity. And that is what this unit is all about. The yellow-gold background in the unit's logo symbolizes the old ranger code, "Life for the Ranger, Death to the Enemy". It is also indicative of the fact that 76th Infantry (VICTRIX) battalion was formerly the Scout ranger battalion. On the other hand, the seven rays emanating from the torch depicts the seven-man team which is the basic fighting unit of the battalion. The ranger team is also tasked to spearhead the unit's effort to bring enlightenment and awareness among the people. The 76th infantry ...
What does being a Veteran mean to me? Being a Veteran means so much to me. I began serving on 4February2000. I went through basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, where I trained to be an 11B Infantryman. My unit there was Bravo Company 150 Infantry Battalion. I was then stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. Where I was a member of HHC and Alpha Company 5/20 Infantry Battalion. I got out in 2002. After a one year break in service I joined the Ohio Army National Guard. My unit, 1/147 Armored Battalion, was located in Hartwell Ohio. In November of 2004, I received word that I would be attached to a Comabt Engineer Battalion that was going to Iraq. That unit, 612th Engineers, would adopt me for the next year and a half. Back to what being a Veteran means to me. All of those units mentioned above are my family. It doesn't matter if I served with them or not. The men who are currently seeing with the 5/20 Inafantry Battalion right now are my brothers. That goes for every unit I served with. I have noticed som ...

Chester Potts 18 mins My Dear Fusiliers, The time has arrived where we can do no more to save The Second Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. The government is pressing on regardless with Army 2020 despite all the problems they are running into and the targets they are consistently failing to achieve. Never has a regiment been so badly betrayed by a Secretary of State for Defence in order to further political aims. In fact, despite our reasoned argument and figures that show that the Fusiliers are one the best recruited regiments in the British Army. It appears that Mr Hammond has buried his head in the sand. At the very least he has been badly advised and it appears he sees the MOD as merely a spreadsheet to be adjusted at will, so that he can get his figures right. What he fails to see is that there are real people behind these figures who have suffered because of this decision, and people, who unlike others, are and were prepared, to give their lives in the defence of this country We may have com ...

I see this Memorial Day pic posted on my brother's wall so I'll go ahead and Share it here in the Mid-West. My late-brother, Ken died in Cambodia in January 1969 - but first he stopped home for a "leave". I'm at the far left in this pic, just around my 18th birthday. Ken advised me to join the military after high school to take advantage of the "Sullivan Act" (one family son at a time sent to combat zone). That might have saved my life - but the other 998 members of my Infantry Battalion all were sent to war. Two members were "Conscientious Objectors" and were first sent to Medic School then sent to join the battalion , without weapons. My wish is for Peace on this Memorial Day.

After two years at MH Kirkee (Pune) I was posted to a field area (Dharchula) in 1968. The very next day I was ordered to provide medical cover to infantry battalions engaged in Mortar firing at Chhanno range. Alongwith six jawans of AMC I set out for chhano range about 7000 feet higher than Dharchula on a hot day. It was a tough climb and unexpectedly it rained heavily and we all got drenched. On reaching Chhanno (9000ft) all of us started shivering because of chill and cool breeze. We pitched a 180 pounder tent and felt better. One of the nursing assts suggested use of medical comforts (a bottle of Brandy) to overcome cold. I agreed and in no time the bottle was empty.All of us naturally had nice deep sleep. In the morning we realized that our complete stock of condensed milk tins (12 in number)was missing. It was the job of a wild bear (most probably) as bears are known to love sweet things and Chhanno was known to have many of them. All went well and we were back at our medical battalion on the 4th day ...

Last evening, Mary and I motored up to Las Cruces, NM for the Memorial Day candle lighting ceremony at the War Memorial in Veterans Park. I sponsored two Vietnam soldiers who did not come home. The memorial is a semicircle wall with plaques providing a synopsis of each American war beginning with the Revolution. After each of those plaques are plaques with the names of men and women from Dona Ana County who served in that war. We presented candles for those who died in battle. I was commissioned to write the plaques for each war. What an honor! The memorial is impressive. If you ever travel I-10 or I-25 through Las Cruces, I recommend a stop at Veterans Park. After the ceremony we had dinner with my old infantry Battalion Commander in Vietnam, his wife, daughter and son-in-law. He kept us spellbound with stories about a fellow POW during the Korean War, a Catholic priest who gave his life to tend to needs of other prisoners. The chaplain recently received the Medal of Honor, and Paul with other POW's att ...

Durn it, Will Tarwater got me to thinking. Thanks, Will! About Japanese-American soldiers in World War II: There were three Japanese-American units, all highly decorated: The pioneer unit was the 100th Infantry Battalion, made up of Hawaiian soldiers, who fought in Italy. Combat there was horrific because the rugged Apennine terrain always favored the German defenders and the German commander in Italy, Field Marshal Kesselring, was one of the finest generals of the war. At the famous struggle for St. Benedict’s abbey, Monte Cassino, the 100th got its nickname: “The Purple Heart Battalion.” Meanwhile, in basic training, the Army took strenuous efforts to prevent the Hawaiian and West Coast Japanese-Americans in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team from killing each other. The two groups despised each other at first, but not only did they integrate themselves into a real combat unit, but I think the thumping they gave each other made them even better soldiers, because when the Army turned them loose ...

Good-day Zimbabwe here is what happened- Major-General Douglas Nyikayaramba, is behind the death of captain of the Zimbabwean National Army (ZNA) Edwin Bhundani Nleya who was murdered in 1989. He did this when he was a major at Parachute regiment at Inkomo barracks. Captain Nleya's body was found on a hillside in Hwange, in the western province of Matabeleland North, two months after he disappeared in suspicious circumstances from the camp 1:2 Infantry Battalion in Hwange where he was based. A post-mortem examination and an army inquiry held in camera attributed the death to suicide, yet an inquest carried out later found that Captain Nleya had been murdered. It has been widely alleged that Captain Nleya was killed because of what he knew about the ZNA's involvement in poaching and smuggling activities in Mozambique, evidence of which he had uncovered while on military duty there in 1988. Captain Nleya’s murder was followed by poisoning of his close ally in custody in June, Lt. Shephard Chisango who als ...

The year I was born 1961 The Blackhawks won the cup for the third time (1934-38 were the other two years they won.) Since learning of this fact I have had an affinity for the Hawks. I first watched them play on WGN in the late 60's mostly late night games, and just peeks of The Jet. When playoffs came around I went to Moller Lanes to watch the games on closed circut from the window that divided the bar from the bowling alley. Many of heartbreaking years later, the Hawks changed course, and had the WANT to give Chicago another Champion to be proud of. In 2010 my wife and I were on Honeymoon in Spain and returned home the evening of the Parade. This year I watched the team that was named after the 86th Infantry Battalion of WW1 win the cup for the 3rd time in my life time, and I am so proud to be comitted to the Indian the team wears on thier sweater. Welcome bandwagon fans, the ride can be bumpy at times but as long as you stay comitted to the Indian, you will always be a Champion.
