    Need Advice- 3C wants to throw in the towel

    I would wonder if you are getting full and accurate feed back. professors that don’t help and only scold and chaplains that will listen but have nothing to say——-I wonder what the reality is. IME as a parent the teachers did a lot to help one of mine that found the course work not easy. Lots...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    The main Doc in BoB did not carry a rifle. He would have had a 45. He would have needed two hands free a lot. As a Doc I was often the most heavily armed when we went out . I was needed more as a shooter since we went out with so few of us. And I was often the most heavily armed of the group...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    Humey, I thought the whole thing with the cowardly clerk and the nazi who returns to kill after being spared was the kind of cheap and easy thing Hollywood does in a Hollywood movie to make an obvious point, I thought what they did cheapened the movie. It was a heavy hand not a deft touch. IMO...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    So the part of the movie you liked the least was the least authentic most typical Hollywood type of set up in the entire movie. We agree. I am disappointed movie makers as gifted as these are, would have taken this approach that would have been more at home in a quickly movie made in 1944 On...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    So many men died to save one guy makes no sense ? I was going to make light and remind that SPR was only fiction. But the fact is the military does this sort of thing all the time. The math itself never makes sense Losing 7 men to save 1 man should never make sense In a rational world. But...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    An excellent point . A single continuous story and showing one company vs showing the war thru the eyes of 3 different people, different islands, different units. Just an aside in the book With the Old Breed one of the 3 books used for the pacific, eb sledge describes being in battle, no...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    not to start an argument :) what sets the pacific apart from the others is how realistic they portrayed the enlisted Marines who were involved in extensive ground combat. Some thing I felt missing in the others , with the others the troops imo , got the Hollywood version of a combat...

    Hacksaw Ridge: Movie Trailor

    It depends what you want. If you want to watch the single most honest and accurate american combat movie—series ever I highly recommend the Pacific from HBO. And they did a pizz poor job on the corpsman. But the series otherwise is just about perfect. Based on 3 different Marines and 3...

    NCAA Eligibility

    Yes if you have one year of competition in college already you would have 3 left at the USNA. But three years or four it should not mean the end of your running career. It could mean one year of invitational (non college) events you train for and compete in. or it could mean a year of a...

    General Milley and "the book" ???

    Not the first time the US military took steps to protect the country against a very likely unbalanced potus. it will not be the last. I heard from my sources President trump was not going to attack China. I heard he wanted to arrest whoever stole the strawberry’s from the WH mess. My sources...

    Help for USNA Personal Statement

    An”anonymous” report you sent to a teacher burning your friend and several classmates for cheating. This is the one statement that truly jumps off the page for me. In bright blinking neon lights. Especially the anonymous part and the friend part. That statement good or bad will elicit...
