Thomas, I dont know when you were in, but have you actually seen what Clinton did to the army? It is a sad state of affairs. I was in during the
Clinton years. Even when I first went in, during the last months of Bush SR, it was degenerating. Yes, fat asses that were out fo shape, as well as
sick, whining, weaklings. there were so many people with physical profiles that got out of doing this and that.....
Both of our supply clerks were overweight and could not pass the female physical fitness test, which is ridiculously simple, and fail the weight
standards repeatedly. I knew a couple of females who actually had to have thier rucksacks lightened or carried for them because of back problems. I
knew of males who were morbidly obese who slipped through the cracks repeatedly. Yes, matters within the military have degenerated considerably,
thanks to liberals and Clinton. Why do you think I got the hell out? Morale, discipline, and all things good and military were being replaced by
forced sexual harrassment classes, sensitivity training, and the like.
Deuces are pretty much phased out, most deuces are used by reserve units. I saw very few deuces in use on active duty, they being replaced by 5 ton
trucks. And yes, I have seen people injured getting out of them, especially if they are in a hurry. I seen a guy bust kis knees when his foot got
caught on a seatbelt that was trapped on the floor, his foot caught as he went out, and he flipped forward, smashing his knees on his way out on the
fender. Broken leg bones can happen.
As with all things degraded and military, failure to secure items is also common. Ive seen cammo nets dumped on the autobahn in Germany off the tops
My conclusion: yes, more than likely, Jessicas injuries were caused before her capture. being a supply unit and all, she wasnt trained and fit for
actualy real combat, the unit concentrating on supply runs and such, and more than likely her leg was busted in numerous ways. We dont know what she
was riding in, or what happened to the vehicle, if it overturned or what.
Thomas, the state of the military and quality of soldiers when I had left was in a seriously sad state, and the military my dad joined and even the
one i joined drastically suffered drawdowns and clintonizing to the point when i heard we were goin into Iraq, I actually was worried wed be made a
joke of. Fortunately, it seems, the worst of liberal corruption had not touched as deeply the main fighting units: Infantry, armor, artilery, Cav,
ect. Behind those lines, the military I remeber was a joke.
