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.

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?

Here's the background. You're a senior E5. Your troops are in formation and you're handing out work for the day. You hand out an assignment to a fresh E2 with less than a year in and only a few months at your command. They blatantly complain and tell you to choose someone else. You calmly tell them they will do this task and they tell you to shove it and give it to someone else. How do you react?

Here's the background. You are an experienced Soldier. You walk in to the commissary to see a young 2LT shopping with a headset on. You professionally and politely get the 2LT’s attention and address the deficiency. They blatantly are rude, dismiss your comment, and tell you that those rules do not apply to him as an officer. Whether you are an Officer or Enlisted, how do you react?

How did you do the research?

I am a current member of the Sons of the American Revolution and have also traced my family through almost every engagement our country has had (all the way back to 1648)

Do you have any special veteran members or members of prominence in your lineage?

Also, if you need help I can point you in the right direction for research.

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.

There is a young cost guard female in my College that tells me she is retired after 3 years in. She sprained her ankle wile she was in and they and she gets 30% disability. I am a 100% disabled Combat Veteran and I am a little curios if she can call herself retired if she is not 100%. She is playing up her retired statice like she did something and I want to make it stop!

I finished my active duty contract and now im a civilian. Im bored with daily life and struggling applying for school and finding a job. Im considering going into reserves as a 25B. I made poor decisions in korea and got my rank taken away all the way down. I think careerwise it sounds like a good idea, but i had a very bad experience as AD, and im afraid it would be a repeated. Any advice will help thank you

The latest tragedy of gun violence against the LGBTQ community is just a continuance of the attack in the SC church, the campus shootings, Navy Yard assault, Theater attack, and assaults upon our children at schools. Assault weapons are the issue, not "guns." How do we fix this?

I will have the honor of taking a Cav Scout platoon in a couple months. Technically and tactically I feel prepared, but I do not feel as prepared to handle property as I should be. I am seeking advice, experiences, and references. Thank you in advance!

This question is for any current recruiters. I was recently told by the my commander that they accepting people back into active duty, I would like to know what would be my chances as an E6 with primary MOS 88H and secondary of 92Y to get back into active duty? I would love to go back into active duty so any credible information will be helpful and appreciated.
