    Damn Life is good. Got lucky last night, a gun pr0n dedicated to me, a trifecta on the FGS, and bragging rights to the FIRST on the MOT, the only FIRST that means nothing but bragging rights.

    Maybe I should go buy a Lotto ticket?

      All firsts on this site, including the one for the Weekend Open Thread, mean nothing but bragging rights for the one that posted first on the applicable open thread.

      Remember, when the keeper of the “Book of Firsts” passes away, and so does his successor, or if this site goes away like our detractors want it to, whoever made first on any of the WOTs, or other OTs, would be trivial. Like specks of dust blown into the wind, out of sight, out of mind, out of memory.

      When everybody here passes away, most outside of this community would not even be aware that there was a contest for firsts on this site or each of the winners were…. Unless this site outlives us.

      Other than that, you’ve been jotted down on my trusted Veteran Organization calendar as making first this date. :mrgreen:

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        My FIRST jotted down on the trusty Veteran Organization Calendar.

        Bragging rights for the MOT are only good for the day.

        Bragging rights for the Friday Weekend Open Thread are good for the whole week. Plus you get gloating and lording over privileges. In addition to having it be said and to be written in the Coveted Book of Firsts.

        TAH will live forever, if only in the hearts and minds of the people that made it up. And eventually, if not sooner, CW or his prodigy will include the Coveted Book of First in a Nationwide Trivia Contest. Plus as we’ve all come to know, the innerwebz are forever. Therefore, where upon, and thus forth, some researcher, some day, somewhere, will stubble across a reference to the FIRST, will get curious, and research it to find out what it all meant.

        BTW: go army beat navy; how ’bout them dawgs; and roll tide roll

        • thebesig says:

          Not how it works. :mrgreen:

          Bragging rights for being first on any open thread is good until the next open thread, of the same category, opens up.

          For example, you have bragging rights for MOT FIRST until the next MOT. whoever got “FIRST” for the last Random Open Thread has ROT FIRST bragging rights until the next ROT open thread. Ditto with the Weekend Open Thread, whoever was FIRST for the last WOT has bragging rights until the next WOT.

          These are different contests. It just happens that the WOT First contest has been running the longest.

          Yes, TAH will live in our hearts and minds, but then, after we all pass away, then what? What we leave, that the Internet remembers, would be superficial to those outside of our community.

          I’ve lurked forums, populated by members of Generation Z, and the younger Millennials. Verdict? We, in this community, are dinosaurs.

          Not into football, but I am both a Navy and Army veteran. :mrgreen:

    Anyone Virginians who need their roof repaired interested in obtaining a free AR-15?

    “We are the only contractor in the state of Virginia that’s giving away a free gun after the completion of any roof, siding, or window purchase,” president J. Elmer says as the word “AR-15” flashes over the screen in yellow letters…”

    Funnily enough, Larson probably didn’t expect life to imitate art quite so much here – there’s a video game called ‘Fortnite’ where I’ve heard of tutors for it (for high school kids) getting paid more than calculus tutors for the very same kids. One guy gets paid around $6M per year just to play the game while others watch:

      Fortnite is the latest craze making money as fast as it can be printed.

      It’s a cartoony version of PUBG (Player Unknown Battle Ground) so the pre-teen/young teen crowd has lost their collective shit over the game.

      Fortnite is free to play, but has “microtransactions” during the game play. You can play and never spend a nickel or you can spend hundreds buying new looks for your on screen avatar.

      These business models are extremely efficient, and are surprisingly well promoted to the right demographic. A year from now Fortnite might be gone and replaced with something new, but it will hundreds of millions before the “free to play” fun runs out.

      If their current revenues continue to the end of the year they gross over a couple billion dollars in fiscal 2019…paying someone 6 million to help make that 2 billion return is damn smart money where I’m from.

    Rest In Peace, Staff Sgt. Travis W. Atkins.

    “A 10th Mountain Division squad leader credited with saving the lives of three of his Soldiers by throwing himself atop a suicide bomber in Iraq will be posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the White House announced Tuesday.”

    “Staff Sgt. Travis W. Atkins went above and beyond the call of duty on June 1, 2007, while his unit — Delta Company, 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team — conducted route clearance southwest of Baghdad.”

    “For his actions, Atkins was initially given the Army’s second-highest award, the Distinguished Service Cross. Now that award has been upgraded to a Medal of Honor.”

    “President Donald J. Trump will present the medal to Atkins’ family on March 27.”

    “According to his obituary, Atkins was also known to hunt, fish, camp and ride snowmobiles. His first love, though, was his son, Trevor Oliver, who was 11 years old at the time of his father’s death.”

    “Atkins was buried June 12, 2007, in his hometown of Bozeman in south-central Montana.”

    • Mason says:

      Thanks for sharing. Again I’m sitting here dumbfounded at the bureaucratic incompetence that makes this a nearly 12 year process! He jumped on a suicide bomber? How many people need to look at that to think that this probably deserves the MoH? Apparently all of them.

    Another Warrior having his award increased to The Medal of Honor. Rest in Peace, Warrior. I am humbled by your sacrifice.

    Army Times

    Staff Sgt. Travis Atkins will posthumously receive the Medal of Honor on March 27 for his actions while deployed to Iraq in 2007.

    President Trump is upgrading a fallen soldier’s Distinguished Service Cross to the military’s highest valor award at a White House ceremony on March 27, according to a Tuesday release.

    Staff Sgt. Travis Atkins’ son Trevor will accept the award on his father’s behalf, the release said.

    “Staff Sergeant Atkins’ heroic actions, at the cost of his life, saved the lives of three of his teammates,” according to the release, when he tried to thwart a suicide bomb while deployed to Iraq in 2007.

    Atkins was patrolling near Abu Sarnak with D Company, 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, according to his award citation, when his squad detained and began to search a group of suspected insurgents.

    “However, one insurgent resisted and engaged Staff Sergeant Atkins in hand-to-hand combat,” the citation said. “As Staff Sergeant Atkins attempted to subdue the man, he realized the insurgent was attempting to trigger a suicide vest which he wore under his clothing.”

    Atkins tackled the bomber, pinning him to the ground and trying to shield his own soldiers from the blast. He was originally posthumously awarded the DSC for his actions.

    It was Atkins’ second deployment to Iraq, on his second enlistment. He had originally joined the Army in November 2000, getting out in 2003 after one deployment with the 101st Airborne Division, according to the White House release.

    He returned to active duty to serve his country, or for whatever reason (It really doesn’t matter to me) and he lost his life. But he saved the lives of others in sacrificing his own. Rest in Peace, Warrior.

    By: Meghann Myers

    In addition to Atkins’ award, the Army has in recent months approved a dozen upgrades of Silver Stars to Distinguished Service Crosses, the result of a 2016 Global War on Terror valor award review.

    Raining & Chilly in my AO.

    Did manage to get a little repairing done on the private drive that runs through the GB Compound; 2 tons of 3×5 rock and 2 tons of limestone base – shoveled by hand with the help of a passel of grandkids. Only got one injury amongst the workers – when a grandson tossed a 5″ rock, and it bounced out and onto my big toe.

    The rain is washing the layer of pine pollen off of everything. The Compound was taking on a distinct yellow tinge.

    Stay warm and dry, y’all.

    “Police: Woman Pulls Gun In Domino’s After Employees Forget To Include Chicken Wings With Order”

    https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2019/03/12/police-woman-pulls-gun-in-dominos-after-employees-forget-to-include-chicken-wings-with-order/

    “A customer at a St. Paul Domino’s is accused of pulling a gun on store employees after they neglected to include her chicken wings with her order.”

    “Officers say they responded to a report of a woman who pointed a gun at a Domino’s employee Thursday at the store’s 1110 Grand Ave location. The employees say the woman was upset about the food that had been delivered to her house and demanded a refund. When one of the employees called 911, the woman fled in her vehicle…”

    • I’m sure the police are sitting around thinking ” Wow, if only Dominos had the name and address of the woman they delivered the order to, we just might crack this case”
      /sarc off/

    • thebesig says:

      Sounds like somebody that expects to get her way “no matter what”, as well as someone who does not know how to interact with others. Two of the many combinations that would increase the risk that someone would have a hard time having a steady job, or a steady income flow. There is a possibility that this woman could have a history of involvement with the law.

      The ComPost and the Communist News Network do not dare apologize now, as they then might as well cut the quarter billion dollar checks.

      They farked up, thugged up, and it will cost them -bigly-.

      Interesting that this will likely lead to a SCOTUS review of the concept of “public figure” in terms of Libel law.

      That prior decision was another “let’s make shit up” moment for the Court, and it has been -grossly- abused by multiple bad- actor media. Those kids are not “public figures” and expressing yourself politically should not open the door to near limitless libel. That right there is a “chilling” of free speech.

      Funny how, again and again, those supposedly opposing “fascism” are in fact aping it’s methods and goals. “Shut up because we will destroy you.”

          I thought it was a while since I read anything from 2/17th and Frankie…good to know Frankie is still out there…and yes, miss reading his Kyle’s info posting.

          Definitely miss comments from 2/17th. I remember a while back, he gave us a warning order that he was going silent…and I thought we would never hear from him again…and then he popped backed up on TAH after an Army beat Navy game.

          So again, hope all are doing well…I also wonder about Skippy, os2, 3/17 Air Cav and others. Was a bit worried about 5th/77th FA this morning, but he came thru and it is always great to see Sparks’, Claw’s and Poetrooper’s comments.

    As of March 13, 2019, Dennis Howard Chevalier, a.k.a. Denny H Chevalier, phony Gulf War veteran, phony veteran, phony C-130 compass call pilot, phony SWAT veteran, phony retired USAF Lieutenant Colonel… That Dennis Howard Chevalier… Still was arrested on February 27, 2018, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    He pointed a gun at his ex-wife and son, waved a loaded weapon around and pretended to shoot things, threatened an ex-fiancé with putting a round into her head, and then his arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    One of these days, he’s going to point his gun at someone, like he has done before… And BHANG! They need to take this guy’s weapons away before he shoots someone.

        It was like that when I joined the military, during the tail end of the Cold War. It was after the Cold War, during the draw down, that the attitude shifted toward requiring the older folk to adjust to the newer folk rather than requiring the newer folk to adjust to the military.

        We tried fighting against that, but we were vilified. We were vilified for subjecting the newcomers to the same standards we were subjected to. Requiring them to adjust to the military, and holding them to the standards and expectations that we were held to, gets us accused of “creating a hostile working environment”.

          When I was Army AD in the early nineties I heard war stories of Reenlistment Boards one had to pass in order to be allowed to re-up due to post Cold War drawdowns, the Elder NCOs said it helped them jettison a lot of “Ash and Trash”. Pity they didn’t have something like that to jettison her, i say give her a handshake and a lukewarm cup of watered down soup while she’s being shown out the door and maybe her 1SG will let her keep her Canteen Cup so she has something to get seconds in at some shelter soup line!

      There’s so much wrong here. She wasn’t targeted for the hijab, she was “targeted” because she wasn’t wearing her hair within regs. She’s also upset because, as a culinary specialist, she was expected to make pork products. Of all the MOSs available, she picks the ONE! where she’ll have to work with pork. Could have literally done anything else.

      I read on reddit last week an AF troop being forced by his/her supervisor to remove the ash cross on their forehead as being out of regulation and unprofessional. Wonder if Mikey wants that case? Sounds like a much more solid violation that this whiney gal.

            My family and I were trying to figure out if she was “exempt” ( sarc) from learning how to make the classic Army Chow Mein, the dish with big chunks of pork in it, when she was at Fort Lee, VA.

            Or if she got “exempt” from learning to make sausage and bacon for breakfast.

            This one is definitely a problem child….and I’ve had my share of problem Soldiers..but not to this extreme.

            If she still has enough time on active duty and does the 3 year active, three years reserve, don’t know how the Army will handle this about reclassying her MOS. We used to do OJT for troubled Soldiers that we had to “change” their MOS, but don’t know if that is still practiced, i.e. will the Army now have to spend $$$ and time and send her to another Army School?

            It’s stuff as this that I am so glad I am Retired. I don’t think she would have lasted long under myself and my NCOs. Patience and Leadership can only go so far.

            BTW, SFC D: Thank goodness she was not in Disney Drive Territory when you & I were there at the beginning of OEF. I would had sent her back “home”..no time for problem children in that type of AOR.

        After all this time have you still not learned that his name does not sound like ‘mule’? It’s pronounced ‘mull-er‘, rgr769. But hey, making fun of someone’s name or ears is the sort of thing one does in 4th grade or so, so perhaps phonetics just ain’t your thing yet.

        And there’s no hero worship of Mueller here – it’s the investigation that matters, not the man. Though when he was appointed FBI director, he had a 98-0 confirmation vote. Guess he was on double-secret deep state cover then, to fool all those rubes in Congress so handily!

        And at the end of the day, I’m happy to accept the results of the investigation.. because in this reality, thorough investigations beat what you heard from your uncle’s friend’s neighbor’s tin-foil wearing conspiracy theorist any day of the week.

          You can’t use a confirmation vote count as any indication of how a party feels about a person. Ruth Bader Ginsberg was confirmed 96-to-3.

          There’s one side that insists on ideological tests of candidates and one side that decides based on qualifications.

    It’s been a while
    But skippy and crew are doing well
    We have no power here on the mountain
    And 5 ins of whitish brownish snow
    Thanks to white sands and 80 plus mph winds

      You midwesterners, y’all hunker down. If you do gotta go outside, put an anvil in yo pocket.

      Be ready for the floods. All points east of the Great Plains, it’s been raining here for two days now. The 5 foot snow drifts are slowly inching down, flooding basements and roads.

      Remind me why my wife won’t let me move south?

      65F in my kingdom, with sunshine galore and fair winds. Possibly more rain tonight, but as long as it melts the glacier in my yard, fine by me.

    Beto is all in.
    His wife is excited.
    She peaks just before the 2:00 mark.
    Then backs off.

      They told her not to do the Schumer-Pelosi stare into the camera thing, but she took it too far. She might have Stockholm syndrome. He’s not the Messiah. For someone who speaks about equality and all that, he sure just keeps his wife eye candy.

      Another “Kennedy-esque” candidate in that he likes to flee the scenes of his DWI crashes. Can’t wait to watch his nomination attempt die like his senate candidacy.

        The progs are all gonna be wetting themselves cuz they are so excited about this guy running. He claims he is “the last great hope for saving Earth.” I guess for Larsie and our other pet prog Beto will be the equivalent of the Second Coming.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Oh, he did say that, didn’t he? Didn’t Trudeau (Canada) say the same thing, or something similar? Trudy’s getting chewed to a pulp these days. His base is cracking. (snrrtt!
