As a woman who put in 21 years of active duty (May 62 to Oct 83),

I am well aware of the misogyny in the service having been on the receiving end of my fair share. I am also aware that the service has no corner on misogyny. As a former training instructor aka recruit wrangler I also know the service does not create it; it comes in carried by civilians who have been carefully taught. Until society as a whole says enough, there won't be much change in the service.

You're right; Trump is the next step. I said on 10 November I was concerned for servicewomen with that vulgarian as CinC.

Life without any electronic devices

No television (not in our home anyway), radios ran on vacuum tubes, did advance math calculating with a slide rule, time pieces ran on gears. Yes, computers existed, but they had no effect on our lives. Everyone of them in existence had less memory combined than this desk top.

Ah Clueless, the military always marches in the inaugural parades

There are special units that do nothing but ceremonies all over the country, parades, concerts, air shows, etc.

However, seeing you don't know shit from apple butter about the armed forces, I can understand your confusion.

Thank you, Mortos. May the returning light warm and guide us all. n/t

This is a beautiful thread

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, not the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

Some mornings you don't even need a face mask.
