    Train for war in a war zone. It makes good sense.

    Wow, alot of agenda in the article. Corpsmen have been doing this at different hospitals for at least the last 25 years. Never saw anyone attempt to politicize it before, though.

    Wait, what?

    The average citizen isn't allowed to own or have a gun in Chi Town. These homicide rates must be wrong... :rolleyes:

    The left wants to turn mental illness into a reason for gun control.

    Might as well point out that when mental illness is present (aka Democrat Rule) gun control doesn’t work.

    Can you name a city that’s in the top 20 for murder rates that’s had a majority Republican city leadership for 10 years or more?

    Please tell me that our country’s flag is not flying under the other flag.

    Let's see the history of where Corpsmen have been training. Bet it's in liberally controlled cities, where gun violence it out of control and gun laws are the most restrictive in the nation...

    Are you positive? I went back and looked and all I see is one. Only one ball atop the pole. Unless it is REALLY perfectly aligned it looks like only one ball and one pole. But maybe I missed something?

    Zoom in, part of the US flag is also obscured by the poll in the front. You can’t see the grommets or the rope. There would be a bit of air between the pole it’s on and the flag.

    Good place to get practice on real gunshot wounds. Lots of opportunity to learn the ropes in Chicago.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    Now if only we could practice small unit tactics and counter insurgency using the gangs as live fire OpFor, we’d be getting somewhere.

    I would think it would be even better to have them on ambulances instead of in the hospital.

    Stroger, an oasis in a warzone! One of my son-in-laws served part of a residency there. Said he didn't feel much safer inside than outside the hospital. But the trauma experience was 2nd to none.
