Ft Collins, CO –-( More comments from friends currently on active duty:

“Everyone in uniform, on or off-base, is at risk of being attacked and murdered by ISIS jihadists who are within CONUS, right now! We saw this happen in the UK just months ago. It’s not a ‘theory!’

Particularly threatened are those of us who work ‘independent duty,’ such as recruiters. Accordingly, we’re finding ways to fit pistols under our dress blues!

‘Authorized,’ or not, I, and a few other like-minded, are always ready to respond instantly to a deadly attack, with lethal force. We all regularly carry pistols and other weapons, and we have rifles in a high state of readiness in our vehicles, all personally-owned. Our CO turns a blind eye, but the subject is, of course, never discussed.

I have been told, in confidence, by other military personnel who suspect what is going on, ‘When something happens, I am coming to your office!’ My response is, ‘When you come unarmed, change your name to ‘cover!’

In short, we’ve grown weary of waiting for someone up to food-chain to actually care about us!”

Comment: The new term is:

“The May-Not Military”

There must exist an office, deep within the bowels of the Pentagon, that is dedicated to creating thousands of new and ridiculous “May-Not” rules, designed to suffocate all individual initiative and promote an all-inclusive inability to fight and win wars.

Our “May-Not Military” is the creation of a generation of BHO-era, Class-A-uniform-loving Pentagon politicians and careerists. It continues to work non-stop to permanently separate real warriors from war and from tools required to wage and to win it.

Have you ever seen a photograph any BHO-era star-wearer actually carrying a weapon? George Patton and Joe Stillwell would never allow themselves to be photographed without one!

Patton was most likely murdered. A fine “reward” for saving the Army’s ass breaking through the
German lines surrounding Bastogne.

We can think that POS Clinton (Willie) for turning our bases into ‘gun free zones’ ! Can you imagine how FU*KED that is ? Our goddamn military bases are gun free zones ? These douche bag liberals want to turn our military personnel and civilians into targets for these ragheads,…not today ! If you aint advancing you’re backing up ! S&D !

Note the word “photographed” in the article. Then look REALLY closely at the picture you referenced. See anything different there? Anything at all?

Oh, yeah…that’s NOT a “photograph”. It’s a painted portrait. It was probably done in a studio and the artist may not have wanted the firearm in the painting.

Reading comprehension…a subtle skill but a useful one, nevertheless.

Hmmm. General Stillwell is NOT wearing a weapon in your picture with this article!

Anyway,I APPLAUD Enlisted Men who break the rule forbidding carrying of weapons.

The US Army will NEVER let soldiers “carry” on base. The Pentagon could care less how many are murdered.
Glad I did not make the Army a career. I’m wearing my Glock model 30 as I type this.
