@JHR13 @Recon6@ArcticWarrior copy that J, and last evening I watched similar things occurring in Texas. One 30 year old rancher had lost his land with the fluctuations of the Red River on OK/Tex border and had paid taxes these 30 yrs to avoid liens by the gov't !!
I was so incensed this had happened in America and I was totally unaware! Seems there may be numerous cases of overreach.....6

@ArcticWarrior @Recon6@CJCJ Amazing !! Here you scurry around in the frking ARCTIC in way below ZERO temps for months and then don't want to go sailing or scuba? lol you are crazy !
I discovered crazy stuff in the high desert also near Vegas. Wondered how/why ppl would go out 'there' and dump their trash, such as fridge etc. and drive away. But then in my AO we have barrier islands, small ones, and ppl go out, party all nite, then leave their trash all over the place and sail away. We have 'clean up' details to remove the shit.....6

@Robinsky copy that. Glad to learn of the 'expose' !! It appears Gant and his boys were outstanding and had moved the mission with large degree of Success. Naturally Mother comes along and sends in another Team to undo all that had been accomplished, sadly she seems to do that quite often imo.....6

1 day, 15 hours ago on Karzai’s Afghan House of Cards
@oldSquid(Mafia) @Recon6@JHR13@TheNorthRemembers yep, since Southern boys were familiar with fishing and hunting and being n the woods, the north were not. northerners were in shops and manufacturing, thus the disparity in Cavalry in the beginning. It is 'said' (I don't believe it) the north became more adept and perhaps the equal near the end. But then I seldom give credit to the north, or is that too obvious?....6

@oldSquid(Mafia) @Recon6@JHR13@TheNorthRemembers Q I Was attempting to draw you into this comm I am aware of your interest and Participation in reenactments :) While I have read extensively I have no records as to my ancestors participation sad to say. That being said, since we have Always been Southerners since coming from England I can only assume I have one or two who were Great Heroes of the South !! (tongue in cheek) .....6
@oldSquid(Mafia) @Recon6@JHR13 copy that bro, I just reduced it to the simplest denominator so I might understand.....'ignorance' being totally unaware of a subject while 'stupid' is not caring enough to research the necessary Intel to state a pos....Remember, I am a simple Grunt lol...6

@JHR13 @Recon6@TheNorthRemembers Hey darlin' you have to remember I'm the guy who wants to build a fence on the Georgia/Florida line to keep em Out lol
Unlike @oldSquid(Mafia) I can't trace my ancestors history to the CW, I can only say which side I would have been on since I'm from Florida.
As for "Cavalry Swords" there appears to be a dearth of books on Yankee Cav Heroes unlike that of the South !! Rather difficult to deal with Q's Nathan Bedford Forrest; J.E.B. Stuart; John Hunt Morgan; or my favorite
I will grant kudos to the dastardly midget Phil Sheridan who was simply Awesome but fought on the wrong side and grudgingly Custer who actually played significant roles in several battles not the least of which was Gettysburg.
Not sure if you are aware, but You probably are, of the final act perpetrated by Gen. Stoneman? Inflicting Sheridan's 'total war' concept on Southerners as the papers were being signed at Appomattox??
Hey sorry I got carried away, Damned Yankees....6

@JHR13 @Recon6 well said and in agreement with your pos
as you are aware I am Not a politico lol.
Ms Belew was speaking to an audience, I assume, who are totally unfamiliar with her subject and would happily jump on her band wagon to trash anything military, such are those of the Left persuasion for the most part......6
@Robinsky Saw the CSPAN reading with Ann Scott Tyson and was quite impressed. What did you think of the book? She 'appeared' to delve into details as she had previously been uninformed on an ODA function, and even tho several individuals were not SF they were Outstanding.
Is it worth the reading in other words? Thanks....6

1 day, 22 hours ago on Russian Ambassador to NATO Recalled
@ArcticWarrior @JHR @ LauraKinCA Ms. Belew needs to meet Ann Scott Tyson (American Spartan) who left her job at WaPo to embed with an ODA, "because it seems no one where I worked was aware of just who these men are and what they Do", slightly paraphrased but pretty damned right on.
I watched her on CSPAN and she was quite impressive. Her book is dedicated to SF Major Jim Gant and his men (many just plain Grunts and not SF!) and their push in the Stan. She became incensed after their accomplishments were negated by the next Team who disassociated themselves from the Afghani's and things went to shit again......6
