Dual service here. Served 4 years in the Navy aboard the U.S.S. Detroit and Naval Station Philadelphia. Both are gone now.
Served 8 years Army. FT Knox, FT Sill, White Sands NM, FT Lewis, FT Bragg. i also spent a lot of time at FT Leonard Wood training, what a shit hole lol
I did a 1 year tour in Afghanistan 2009 - 2010 with 5th Brigade 2nd Infantry Division ( 5th Brigade was reflagged as 2nd Brigade upon return) at RC South Kandahar.
My little rant:
Served Under Col Tunnel who lost his carrer fighting the Army over the bullshit that was going on under the command of ISAF. Alot of bullshit articles have been written about Col Tunnel and 5th Brigade making him and us a scape goat. We had more casualties in Afghanistan than any other Army Brigade. Alot of bad feelings over the deployment. Being thrown under the bus and treated by the Army as a big mistake burns alot of our asses.
Here is an article that was written by a Journalist inbeded with us. He added COL Tunnels letter to the Sec of the Army so the truth would be out there.
Love my Brigade and the men i fought with. I will forever hold our lost soldiers in the highest standards and hold their memories with honor.
Fuck ISAF and the foreign pussys Obummer stuck us under. VET Tv Rocks!
