The early AM video of Prigozhin addressing mercs ends with a menacing message for the rainbow rump rangers of the Kwanstain AKA Chiquitastan. Just saw the interesting “16 year plan to destroy America” that was only delayed when the inevitable pantsuit princess fumbled in her “historic” slipper on a hot day in NYC. Of course it was all CPUSA (D) but the Washington Generals Grand Old Politburo have a sternly worded letter ready. Aesop · July 27, 2023 at 4:38 pm Yawn. The is administrative busywork covering a few folks actually sitting under rocket and missile attacks. Which affects only the Marine Embassy Guards, the military attaches and staff, a couple of crypto geeks in the code room, possibly a couple of dozen SF A-team members, and a few log/training weenies, at present. If it’s even 100 people total, I’d be shocked. Still no sightings of US military combat formations as large as a fire team anywhere within 500 miles of the fighting, let alone in Ukraine proper.

Divemedic · July 27, 2023 at 7:50 pm We got $115 in hazardous duty pay for working on the flight deck, $150 a month in combat pay, and if you were an E4 or above and assigned to a sea duty command for more than 36 consecutive months, you got $360 in Sea Pay. unknownsailor · July 28, 2023 at 5:58 am Sea Pay goes up to $800 a month max now, if over 8 years cumulative sea time. Sea counter ticks throughout a sailor’s career now, when on a sea tour, so if a sailor goes to a ship for their first command, goes to shore, then goes back to sea after that, they could reasonable be at the 8 year mark at the end of their 2nd sea tour. I hit 8 years sea time about 2/3 of the way through my 3rd sea tour on a carrier. I spend 4 years in a squadron for my 2nd sea tour, and for squadrons their sea time only ticks while on the ship. Sea pay is not dwell time or rank gated any more, either, everyone gets it on a ship, from the lowly E-1 n00b who has been there a month to the crusty command master chief with more sea time than God. Amounts will differ, of course, but everyone gets it. EN2 SS · July 28, 2023 at 6:52 am And I used to get $50 bucks a month. LOL Gryphon · July 28, 2023 at 2:27 pm I wonder if this covers the ‘sheep-dipped’ FUSA Army guys in “Ukrainian” Uniforms… Or the ones on a ‘leave of absence’ so they can be Mercenaries? Aesop · August 2, 2023 at 2:46 am Oh please. Pics and docs, or that never happened. Let’s save the tales of Bigfoot riding a unicorn for the Weekly World News, or current equivalent. We’ve cycled something near 2,000,000 people through the U.S. military with wartime service since 2001, probably a quarter to half of them, minimum, with legit ground combat experience, and pushed most of the real meat-eaters out of the ranks lately. And right now, the economy is in the crapper. Maybe you’ve heard of that. If it’s news to you that former military guys with combat time can always find work with that skillset 24/7/365, as has been true for 6,000 years of recorded human history, you should probably get out more. Just saying. Comments are closed.
