Do most Army soldiers want aviation?


Recommended Posts

Potentially identifying Shindig caused some frantic posting from the OP, so, no- I don't miss that individual's post. If the posts were for real, there were some definite unpleasant personality issues presented.

I heard it's written SEAL but pronounced "ghey" is that correct?

I went from WOBC to Primary just just like a month. It was awesome seeing all my old WOCS mates starting Primary 5-6 months after me haha

a little unrelated, is there anyone I can visit to try and get a WOBC date as early as possible after graduating WOCS, or is it just luck of the draw essentially?

Not that I have ever heard of. Maybe just B Co staff if you have a special circumstance that would require it, otherwise they would have a 100 WO1's coming in trying to get in a class.

Luck of the draw. We didnt know WOBC dates until about 2 weeks from WOCS graduation for the street to seaters.

He sure fell off the face of the earth quickly.

Yep. If anything, that's good proof he isn't real. Which of course begs the question of who was pathetic enough to keep this up for so long? It stopped being troll-y and started being disturbing a very long time ago.

Wouldn't surprise me a bit, at which time I'm sure he will blame me for it all.

My base is near Camp Merrill, and a medic brought recovered a decent Drago backpack (don't know how, where or when- it was here when I came on Monday). It has a last name only on it, lots of attached pouches including a Garmin. The GPS has an MGRS waypoint looks like Ft Bragg and what I'm told are 'jump' waypoints. Any suggestions as to how to get this back to owner?

My first thought was to fly up to Merrill, land on the grass strip, shutdown and take the backpack to Operations and give it to them. But the more I thought about it...... that is probably not the best plan.

 

I suggest you take it to the AASF in Winder. If you fly, there is plenty of room to land outside the gate adjacent to runway 05. If you drive there, the gate is open during normal business hours. I would give it to them and see if they can get it back up to Merrill. That unit trains up there a lot and knows most all the permanent party assigned to the S-3 section.

I wish he was comfy with still talking to us....

Guess I'll go back to making memes and slapping PT belts on people in Power Point while I'm protecting this country from the confines of my BTL CPT desk...

Didn't have a single plane land today, so I decided to finally tackle this thread. Did. Not. Disappoint.

 

He sure was able to rile some of you up haha.

It was dead. Why did you bring it back?

 

I think we have a new candidate for shindig.

Didn't want to start a new thread for this but just wondering if anyone might happen to have a PDF document or something on NVGs. I have the TM for most of it but it doesn't go in detail about what the parts are inside it and what each does.

Like a -20 maybe for NVGs?
