If the man at the top may be unstable - then the White House is likely to exhibit some instability - as well as some efforts by the White House staff - who are normal infighters - to undermine and replace the man at the top. The problem, however, is how to accomplish regime change (the replacement of a mentally unstable incumbent with another member of the ruling political party) within the very strict confines of the United States Constitution - and within the constraint of maintaining the full faith and confidence of the citizens.

Today, February 19th, is the 72nd anniversary of the start of the Iwo Jima battle. One of my goals is to go on one of the yearly tours. There are other places that I want to see, but Iwo Jima is at the top of my list.

I'm currently unable to travel far for employment and have become immensely interested in telecommuting. I know a couple people that have worked from home and they seemed to enjoy it. I have tried using several telecommute job finders, like Virtual Vocations, to no avail.

I have a strong resume, but I think not having telecommuted prior might be holding me back.

So I've noticed more and more that SM's spouses are thinking that they have rank equivalent to their SM. Whether it be they deserve a free Veteran's day meal or that they are above other spouses. I attached an example from my facebook timeline. What are everyone's opinions?

According to Article 2 of UCMJ, "Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay" are covered by UCMJ. Does this mean that retirees can be charged with UCMJ violations even long after retirement and when not doing anything related to the military? Has this ever happened?

So I have seen various set ups of badges on uniforms. I knew a guy that would only wear his Halo wings. I guess he wanted to make sure everyone saw them. In some places I have also seen Air Assault above Airborne wings. I think that is a 101st thing. What do you do with yours or can you even fit all your badges?

Beards were allowed for ALL Sailors until 1981 when CNO Adm. Hayward banned beards for anyone under E4. In 1984, CNO Adm. Watkins banned beards under the impression that Sailors would not be able to get a proper gas mask seal. However, Secretary John Lehman said that it was simply due to aesthetics. Lehman said that master chiefs complained that beards made the Navy look un-uniform.

Hello, I would like information about Yongsan, South Korea. My branch manager said he can put me on assignments there but I would like more informations.

1. Are there any signal units there and what do they have the 25L's do there?

2. Is it better to do command sponsorship at your current units or your future unit?

3. Me and my family have two cars so would it be better to ship both or just one?

4. How hard is for spouse to gain employment and getting child care? It took my wife almost two years to get a job and it took one year for my son to get child care on base.

5. Will they let people stay on post or off post? I am a SPC(P) and will make SGT soon j,but I just wanted will they let soldiers stay off post or do you have to be a SFC and above to do so.

6.Is there anything I should prepare as far as cell phone and internet? I heard Netflix and Hulu doesn't work over there and you need a cell phone carrier that is in Korea.

How is the MWR and USO trips in South Korea? I heard people said it is wonderful but I want to know do they do oversea trips to different countries?

I try do my own research ,but he doesn't give an enough information that I would like. If anybody could answer my question I would greatly appreciate. Thank you

While I was in the Army I had issues with knee pain (left knee). I was told it was PFPS, and given ibuprofen/naproxen.

It didn't get better, and I relied on the ibuprofen to take the edge off and continue to PT/train/etc.

After I got out I saw a civilian doc and was told my patella didn't track property, which inflames the joint when I walk/run/etc. He didn't give me anything useful to fix it though, just some basic ideas about muscular imbalances.

I haven't had many issues (outside of soreness and weather change), but I also haven't run much since getting out. I have also had it buckle before going up stairs, or when I was trying Strongman stuff (I know, I know, bad idea).

I'm trying to get back into shape (I'm not overweight, just can't run to save my life) so I want to start running again but need some tips to help keep the knee happy without medication (and preferably without a brace).

Any ideas?

Why_are_fewer_young_veterans_joining_veteran_organizations_(vfw__american_legion)_post_military_service__
Our WWII Veteran ranks are very thin, and we are losing many Korean War Veterans now. Vietnam Veterans are in their upper 60s or 70s already. My point is, our stories and our history is shared across the generations in lodges and halls across the country, but fewer Veterans are joining these organizations post military. Who will tell their stories when they are all gone....who will tell our stories? Curious to others opinions on this subject! Thanks in advance! AATW!
