I finally had to explain that we couldn't be charged the typical automatic gratuity, but would make sure the wait st...

re: VMI , West Point, or the Citadel? - armytiger96
I wanted Medical Service Corps because it was the branch that would allow me to actually use my degree. My class only had five slots so I was no where close getting one of those slots. So I picked Artillery....

re: VMI , West Point, or the Citadel? - armytiger96
Umm if you go to West Point you have pretty much decided that your branch assignment will be Army since as a cadet you are actually in the Army. All graduates of WP will serve in the Army after graduation. The only exceptions are those that fail their commissioning physical or actively pursue a di...

re: VMI , West Point, or the Citadel? - armytiger96
If he/she is lucky enough to choose b/w which of the three schools to attend then choose the school that he is most comfortable at. All three schools will provide a great education and an opportunity to be commissioned in the Army. One advantage of attending Citadel,VMI, or A&M is that you can be ...

re: Two-star general demoted after affair - armytiger96
Maybe so but the rules are the rules and as long as those are the rules the leadership has to follow them. Although it may not be anybody's business these actions show a lack of judgement and integrity both of which are paramount to being a general officer. Many of officers, NCO's, and cadets ...

re: Two-star general demoted after affair - armytiger96
I'm sure adultery is against UCMJ which makes it their business. I once had an exam question about a husband and wife engaging in mutual oral sex behind closed doors and whether or not they could be charged for Sodomy under UCMJ....

re: Best funeral mishap ever? - armytiger96
Not necessarily a funny story but when I was in the Army one of my fellow Lieutenants failed to attend a military burial for a veteran. The funeral was over a weekend or holiday and he completely forgot about it. Showed up to PT Monday morning and our CO asked him how the funeral went and then w...

re: Non-Touristy Activities in NY? - armytiger96
If you have a day and willing to travel go visit West Point it is an hour north of the city. Access to post is restricted as a result of 9/11 but they offer tours at the visitor center. I guess the tour part makes it "touristy". Obviously, I'm biased but I think it would be a fun day if you a...

re: Mississippi WL&F taking deer away - armytiger96
I have read articles about the effects of CWD. However I feel the law is a bit extreme. For example CWD at this point is certain areas of IL not the entire state. The law should apply to the counties in the state where the disease is present. I will admit that I'm ignorant to how the disease is...

re: Mississippi WL&F taking deer away - armytiger96
No they were allowed to keep the meat which was still on the bone and antlers after they threatened to burn it on the spot. Instead of confiscating and destroying it they received a ticket with a fine. This tells me the law is less about protecting the herd and more about generating revenue from ...
