I think one of the coolest parts is the new software. They got this program installed that calculates all the trig so that it can aim high and fire off three rounds, lowering the barrel after each round so that all three rounds land at the same time. One gun lands a barrage of artillery, how cool is that!
It almost makes me want to apply for the cavalry... But I'll not go into that...

I didn't know the Abrams could do that now, I knew they had artillery that could, that's pretty bitchin the Abrams can now.

I'm a big fan of Stryker's. 8x8 tanks on wheels basically, these suckers are un-stoppable and are a huge weapons platform.

Tell your boys to stay safe over there.

I always tell them, and also, i try that one space bar game with one of my buddies, and he got some rediculous number, lol

he says its because of his trigger finger haha.

my other buddy just got back state side yesterday,
first thing he did, was drink a beer, and go to burger king, lmfao.

It sucks that they've got probation.. At lest his tolerance should have gone down.
That does seem to be the trend tho, beer and a burger!
