  • My new vest I wear at powwows and veterans funerals. I counted all my deployments during my active duty time in and it came up 38 deployments. On my vest I put my five combat tours only. I put the Chief Joseph patch on cause that is my ancestor with the three campaign ribbons added to show where I went to. Which represent Southwest Asia, Afghanistan, Iraq.

    • If you ever spent time at Kandahar Airfield, you know the part of the base I am posting about. I was at KAF back in 2003-04 and this poo pond was nasty AF.

      • I was in the Army at a time where it was unthinkable to take part in a real fight outside of Germany if not a case of NATO defense.

        And I am not sure if as it is today that we are on the right path. way. This will for many years a very debatable issue outside the politicians.

          I know that Germany sent some soldiers to Afghanistan. I never served along side them as they were in a different province than I was.

            Sending German soldiers outside the region of NATO and for the defense of the allies is at least a difficult moral issue.

            After WWII the first real war engagement was ordered by the Government of Schröder and Fischer, Sozialdemokraten and Grüne. Those who normally oppose every military engagement.

            The different opinions in Germany will remain at least as long as one of my generation exists and may be the generetaion behind me.

            War doesn't solve the problem but what else stops ignorant violent believing idiots? Talking alone not.

            Sigh.

              All I remember about the German Army in in 2011 in Afghanistan is they gave the Taliban a good kick in the butt and they were being investigated about it. I don't know what happened of the investigation, I left Afghanistan by then. But I do remember, the Taliban attacked the Germans first in Mazar e Sharif.

              • Yes they did but the "Piece" fractions were pissed off about it.

                Minster of defese Jung, General Schniederhahn and state secretary had to dismiss because of colaterial civilian casualties and the political fight about this incident.

                It is known as the Kundus Affäre.

                But most what happens, we don't read in the news because it never made the news.

                        We have the standard 6 ft. fence in the backyard, and a few months ago, I heard about burglaries increasing dramatically in the entire city. To make sure this never happened to me, I got an electric fence and ran a single wire along the top of the fence.

                        Anybody have any kitchen horror stories to share?

                        I was warming up some chili the other day and THOUGHT I turned it off before I ran off to my class. Needless to say, I turned it to HIGH accidentally, and after arriving 4 hours later, my house was FULL of chili bean smoke.
