Semper.

I was a Supply Guy from 2003-2007. Granted, there was actually a war going on at the time, so that would explain many of the guys I knew who were called back. But I also knew plenty of older guys who got called back between Desert Storm and OIF when there wasn't a big war going on. Sometimes they just do it by critical MOS needs.


"Presidential Reserve Callup Authority" (PRCA) is a provision of a public law (US Code, Title 10 (DOD), section 12304)

In a "national emergency" (which we have been in a perpetual state since 14 November 1979). In theory he is limited to 1million without additional Congressional approval.

However, the different branches all have their own rules regarding these activations and if I recall the Marine Corps is limited to 2,500 personnel at any one time.

Usually these are accompanied by some kind of policy memorandum or public statement.

The latest one I can find is from 2009 for 1800.

I searched this:

www.marines.mil...

Here is the actual Message or Order:

www.marines.mil... fication.aspx

Then there is this one that indicated a call up of 10K Marines in the US for a simple screening to see how "ready" the IRR actually is.

www.flickr.com...

It was evidently for screening and health and welfare purposes.

Regarding the Desert Storm/Shield call-ups that was for the purpose of backfilling positions in view of the initial planning casualty estimates in the 30K range.

In the end a lot of Senior NCOs were double slotted and sat around competing for things be in charge of in the sand....

And more people were killed in traffic accidents than combat.

I think we need too step back and look at this wider. We just allied Turkey and Isreal once again. We either did that because we are going to go into Iran or Syria. We can't be having two of our allies fighting. We have to stabilize that before we make our move into Iran or Syria.

or

Now on the other side we have the Fat boy screaming(NK). He is having his strings pulled causing a lot of noise to make the world look his way. While we do something else or he is a wack job, My guess China is pulling his strings.

Now we are Backing Japan against china over territory disputes. The other small countries along the china border are seizing this op to jump on the US Japan Bandwagon. Looks like the countries around the world are aligning themselves for war.

Meanwhile at home we got the dreaded DHS strategically placing caches of weapons and equipment, Because the economy will probably collapse and people will riot , or/plus we will be going to war and the people will be pissed off about that as well.

Looks to me like the stage is almost set for WW3

GAME ON!!!

I agree fully with this. I am not an expert on this for sure, but there are too many things going on to discount any of the answers I have read so far. The fan is blowing for sure.

Interesting!

I wasn't aware of bases for training in WV, so I looked it up and found this....


Afghanistan-bound military personnel from across the nation will learn to operate Mine Resistant Ambush Protected troop carrier vehicles, or MRAPs, on reclaimed surface mine land adjacent to the West Virginia National Guard's Memorial Tunnel training complex.

The heavily armored 23-ton MRAPs, which can hold up to eight soldiers, were developed in response to heavy losses being suffered by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan from improvised explosive devices.


Source

Now is this for possibly a preparation for Iran? Or since our wonderful Homeland Security has purchased about 2700 of these vehicles, is it more training for use against the American people????

I guess time will tell......


Our troops wouldn't attack us.

Syria is spiraling out at the moment, I dont see any way for it to resolve itself. It would be foolish not have people on standby even if the US in not directly involved.

What we have here is a report of one guy alegedly being recalled, I'd be reluctant to call this as an indication of major military move until we hear or more cases of guys being recalled.

For all we know he could just be a sieriously talented air conditioning maintenance specialist who knows how to train new guys on legacy AC units.

My girlfriend and him have been friends since high school and are supposed to be going to visit his Thailand home this fall, Let's hope we still do.

Things may be coming to a head with the fat little clown in N.K. There is no doubt Iran has been helping the little rat bastard build bombs. The big question is who is going to use one first?


I just had a thought. What if the NK child king read this stuff. Can you imagine how much of a tantrum he would throw then? I imagine he knows what Americans think of him but damn.

Pretty Crazy Stuff. Here's my opinion:

1) NK - can't ever take the threats seriously. China is the key and US officials believe they will support the UN sanctions. Probably not going to materialize.

2) Syria - very complicated as it draws in too many players, namely Iran and Russia. The POTUS is taking the road of diplomacy with Iran as stated, and the economic problems are too big to do anything with this situation at the moment.

3) US - DHS has purchased 2,700 MRAPs, has regions of the country with "assert" teams, purchased 1.6 billion rounds (confirmed btw), and they train in West Virginia.

It's coming...boots on the streets and drones in the air. Bloomberg is talking about it. Congress is holding farcical hearings "regarding" it. It's out in the open. The fat lady has sung.

Even the Canucks are putting it together...here's about the best summary that I've seen. He asks the most important question for any type of critical thinking about this issue: "Why would they need that?" Brilliant...

I cannot shed any light on recalls, but my son-in-law flies blackhawk helicopters for the Army. He is supposed to be deployed in a week or two (or three), but they're not giving him a definite time or a definite place.

Very unusual, typically he knows exactly when and where he's going to go. I find it odd that they're keeping him in the dark until the very last minute.

Gives me a cold chill to think that we have two wars going that are a decade old, and they're fixing to get us into something else.

I checked and found this relating to the tunnel training complex that you found:
Center for National Response

Interesting....

The Center for National Response (CNR) is an operational component of the Joint Interagency Training & Education Center (JITEC) that is a National Guard training activity operated by the Chief, National Guard Bureau and the Adjutant General of West Virginia. It is a flexible WMD training complex that provides multiscenario exercises for the military or joint operations with military and first responders.

So they do training with first responders. It is for counterterrorism training. Seems to be for operations that would fall inside our borders, if they are training with first responders???


Syria. That's my bet and what has seemed to be on the schedule now for a good long time. US troops already sit on Israeli soil and in some number as part of the Sinai Multinational forces, so they'd be at risk and needing support regardless if things blew open over there....I wonder though, how badly would Obama want to take Syria down?

I've been watching this all and getting a weird feeling. Israel and Turkey making friends? The UN cleared Israel on that incident and the report isn't unclear about it. Just procedural questions. This was a shocker. Turkey was the nation that had hacked F-16 IFF to engage and fire on Israeli planes....and they produce them so it means something.

If Obama wants Assad dead and Syria taken down badly enough....a run in from two directions would be a heck of a thing to see for surprise, wouldn't it?

It's that WMD aspect that got my attention. Only one theater in the world right now is a likely place for WMD capable first responders to be needed. Syria. It's the only place absolutely known to have the weapons ..as it's pretty much open fact .. and where either side could well let fly if cornered for Assad or just capturing them in the case of the rebels.

I hope I'm wrong ...but could Obama have been going to see Israel himself before a war started? Like I said.. funny feeling about this whole thing here. Like there is a BIG BIG thing we're not seeing.

I would assume that you hired him because of the military skills he had learned.
So what exact kind of work does he do for you?

That should give us an insight into his military skills.

It really depends on what his MOS is. If he had a job in the military that they do not have enough people to fill then its pretty likely that is the reason he was called back. Every contract signed with the military makes people serve 2 years of "inactive" status in which they can be called back to active duty. If he is Military Intelligence or something like that its very likely that he has a security clearance and can't say what he's going back for. I don't think its anything to worry about really.

ALMOST? The political situation globally is very similar to the set stage of both WW I and WW II. It won't take much to set it off, and NK's current involvement in cyberwar against SK may be the straw that broke the world's back.

The Banker class are the only ones that will profit from this mess, if they survive it. And I'm sure by now they have calculated the risk/benefit and know the downside...my guess we're headed down this road anyway, and they assume either they profit or not. Watch for some big Wall Street moves soon and a lot of propaganda showing how "stable" things are in the MidEast, and how terrible NK is...

Cheers,

Just one war now.
The last of our troops left Iraq on Tuesday.
 

As far as the rest of it..
I really hope we don't get any more involved in Iran or Syria,
1. We just can't afford it, the country is broke.
2. Our forces are very war weary, everyone is tired of these pointless wars with no clear goal or definition of winning.

North Korea:
I don't see us getting involved in anything there.
1 It's on China's doorstep, would we let China come in and handle stuff in Mexico City? No way.
2. For that very reason I expect that if NK gets any more froggy China will tell us to not worry about it they will handle it.

I only see two US military bases in West Virginia.

Both seem to be connected with naval issues. Here is a link:

Can't forget the Navy/Echelon site at Sugar Grove WV. I did two TDY's there during my career. It's an outdoors man's paradise.

Ever heard of cannon fodur ?
Cheap and expendable wear out the enemy with the cheap ones first.

Today while riding my my son's girlfriends dad, retired Marine Recon, he mentioned being called about the IRR. Said he talked to them for about an hour on the phone this morning. He said he told them no way in hell did he want to go back that he's too old for that crap. He's been retired for 13 yrs and he's of Korean descent, speaks it fluently.

I started giving him crap that he'll be up at the DMZ by the end of the month.
He didn't like my joke. Then we started talking about other stuff.
