    Not everybody gets to go to the O Club. My wife is a senior officer and has never been, therefore I've never been.

    They still have anti-tank warfare, such as LAV

    Has anybody seen the Space Force chow hall? I've heard the food and service is out of this world.

    Certainly not uncommon to call Army Medics "Doc" at least by the soldiers they work with.

    I spent 10 years in the infantry and I'm not too sure what you're referring to.

    I hate people who posture and pose. The only thing that truly matters is what a person can do when things get tough. Everything else in nonsense.

    I still think that Special Forces Medic and Combat Engineer are the two best MOSs in the Army - both are good combinations of real skills and right wing adventure.

    Why not ? Unless it has changed since I got out, any Officer can walk into any O Club in the US and probably any overseas. It's not just for eating and drinking. I saw my 2 star base commander at the O Club at Sheppard often just mingling with the troops to see what was really going on. Same way with the Wing King at Little Rock. Management by walking around, so to speak, I assume.

    If you had been in the Marines or Navy you'd know exactly what I'm talking about. No posturing or posing here. My comment had nothing to do with SF Medics or Combat Engineers. I spent several years in infantry too, and don't give a poop about whether or not you hate me. You always have the option of the block button.

    Just not something my wife goes to. Speaking honestly, I wish she'd loosen up and go have some fun with her friends, even if it's at the O Club. She's too focused on her career and the next promotion.

    My grandson starts boot camp next month. He was offered amtrac crewman for a school and took it. I guess the school would be in Del Mar. My first tour in VN was with an amtrac unit. Beat humping the mountains and we could carry a lot of ammo. Mines were a problem though. Boot camp was only 8 weeks when I went through, although it seemed they tried to cram 12 into 8.

    Oh ! That explains it. Navy O Clubs aren't near as much fun as AF O Clubs.
