    I've seen several articles on random shootings at federal sites near DC. It does seem very strange, but at least no one is getting hurt.

    I hope they catch the shooter.

    There was some concern about it for the Marine Corp Marathon....no problems as far as I know though.

    I remember when a male First Lieutenant stopped to open a door for a female Captain going into the headquarters building at Kessler. He got reamed out for about five minutes for not saluting prior to opening the door. Sometimes it is a little stupid. The NCOs all scattered and made them self scarce showing the real intelligence of all NCOs.:shake:

    So somebody is just shooting at military buildings, with no intention to kill? Strange. I mean its good that they don’t want to hurt anybody though.

    They believe that it is someone that is disgruntled with the Marines and this is their way to show their anger.

    They shot at a Coast Guard recruiting station in Woodbridge, VA yesterday as well.

    No one was hurt.

    There's more to the story. He's a Marine.

    "Taliban Rules" Hahaha, like a 7th grader "The Raiders RULE"....

    Windows can't be shot out at the Pentagon...if you've ever seen them. Weird, the Coast Guard recruiting station is not longer mentioned...I'm guessing that wasn't mentioned by Marine Corps public affairs when they got the call...

    Shhhhhh..... don't mention his religion. I guess he wasn't one of "The Proud".

    Glad they got him.
