What is your favorite military weapon you've ever used. It can be because of its lethality or just because it made you want get up and yell "MURICA". Keep it within the military arsenal though. It can be anywhere from a K-Bar to an A-10. But you yourself have to have used it or shot it.

My favorite weapon that I have ever used is the M134 Minigun. If you're ever in doubt unload massive amounts of freedom on your enemies.

Is there really any other option besides the PT Belt.

I never wore a PT Belt. I guess the Army was not using them at Fort Benning
or Fort Gordon 1968 to '69. We did not have the PT Belt in West Germany '69-'71.
It appears I missed out on this piece of Army safety equipment. :o)

My understanding is that Amazon and several other companies are putting this around their servers in the wake of the China Chip Hack story.

We never had such a useful item. In fact we never had much more than our o.d. green fatigues. A good starch added sheen, highly polished boots reflected, and then the birth control glasses were impossible to miss.

My favorite military weapon while I served was the M14. I was threatened with courts martial if I didn't turn it in while in Vietnam. I finally turned it in on the day I got on the airplane to leave. I used it again when I served on the honor guard detail at Ft. Carson and again with the Army Marksmanship Team.

In 2003 we were still using the M-14 aboard navy ships. I only got to shoot it during qualifications but it was fun anyway. Aboard ship my weapon of choice was the Mossberg 12 gauge.

From BCT at Fort Benning in 1968 to the 558th MP Company in West Germany 1969 to March of 1971 the M-14 was my rifle. I always qualified expert on the range and that
M-14 rifle was a very accurate weapon. In April of '71 I helped unload the new M-16 rifles
from the deuce and a half that backed up to our arms room. I hated it when they replaced my M-14 with that M-16. I never adjusted to that light weight M-16 and only qualified marksman with it the rest of my time in Germany.

Woody: Nice choice! I hit the Philippines in 1973 and the USMC was still using the M-14. I qualified with it twice and never had to with the M-16. We fired FAM with the M-16 at Infantry Training School. I compliment you on your taste in fine military hardware and weaponry...! Semper Fi, COL L

1SG: Outstanding choice in fine weaponry as well. I not only qualified twice with the M-14 (once in boot camp and once overseas) I have served over 40-years in law enforcement and still carry the M-14 as my patrol rifle (brand new from federal government). It shoots like a dream. Thank you for your distinguished service! COL L

SrA Edward Vong - Don't know how it is today, but operation of communications is still pretty hard to beat. We tracked Soviet subs in the Atlantic, placed commercial orders for parts, and maintained active communication up and down the chain of command with either teletype, C-cord, or switchboard and radio. Best moments had been connecting family members on deployment from the Mid-Pacific via HF Radio to Hawaii, a mere 2,400 miles, through military phone system to their families nearest base, and commercial phone to their loved ones.
