Biden administration officials lay blame on “the fog of war” as there was confusion over a UAV returning to base.
I want to know the location of the barrack in relation to the flight path of the returning UAV.

    So they didn’t know what assets were up in their vicinity? The ME is now drone city let alone Ukraine-Russia. Duh….. .

The enemy knew how to make their drone follow a US drone apparently

The primary focus our military has is providing services and accommodations to transgenders and anti whiteness sessions. This is not an overstatement

    There is “equity” in who can get killed with Biden Admin policies. More are severely injured so more may not make it. Note to Biden: DON’T wear a watch if you go to Dover…. we know what time it is and you should to.

The military makes use of Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems to protect against the accidental shooting down of its own aircraft. Are they trying to tell us that they don’t use such a system of US drones? Can they really be that incompetent?

    All the drones are IFF equipped from what I can gather. You can bet that transponder was squawking its head off. Obviously more training is indicated, but that comes after DEI, CRT, etc. indoctrination courses. First things first Richard.

Why are reserve soldiers being sent to active combat zones? DOD never learns its lessons.

    When the Cold War draw-down began in earnest, some Reserve and Guard component units that were previously redundant units became more mission-critical. Over the last decade, it’s reached the point where any prolonged expedition, no matter how modest in scope, will quickly require reserve or Guard elements, particularly for combat support units. IOW, we have the ability to surge active duty troops but we’ve lost – or are losing – the ability to surge those units without leaning into our reserve support units.

    Democrats laughably call this reduction in capability the ‘peace dividend.’

    The process began post Vietnam. With the advent of the all volunteer force and the end of the 3 decade + draft. The more responsible SR Officers and DoD officials intentionally designed the force to require or nearly so the activation of National Guard and Reserve forces in the event of a major conflict. The round out Brigade being the most visible example. One National Guard Combat Brigade was assigned to each Active Army Division as a part of the Division in the event of a major conflict. This leveraged existing forces and had the effect of acting as a political brake on a rush to commit US Troops to a major conflict.

      And we learned in 1990 that there were serious problems with the concept. Even during OIF they would have to mobilize say 3-5 QM Truck Companies just to deploy 1. I doubt it has gotten any better.

    They’ve been sending reservists into active duty for 75 years, genius. Reservists are just as well trained and combat ready as active duty soldiers. What’s the point of having reserve forces if not to be ready to deploy to combat zones?

      This comment is head-poundingly stupid, but that’s what we’ve come to expect from you.
      “Army Reserve” units are NOT the same as NG units, and in either case they are (with some notable examples in specialty fields) not as highly trained as active duty units.

        I think you are the one who has limited understanding of how standing armies work and supplement manpower effectively.

        NG units receive the training they need to fit in and supplement the forces on the ground dependent on the mission they are undertaking. These aren’t under trained Gomer Pyles just being thrown in to a meat grinder 🙄

        As a retired Marine Corps (active duty) infantry officer, I feel compelled to stick up for our reserve and Guard component forces. While I don’t have quite as much familiarity with Guard infantry troops, I do have extensive familiarity with Marine Reserve units as well as Army reserve units. In MANY instances, our reserve component forces are often better than our active duty units. There are a lot of reasons for this. First, reserve units tend to skew a bit older. Second, reservists often spend a MUCH longer time in a single unit than their active duty colleagues. While there are some downsides to this, one upside is the reservists (with proper leadership) will often have a much more complete sense of how all the parts of the unit work because of something called cross-training. Cross-training, for whatever reason, tends to be much more developed in reserve units than active-duty units. Lastly, reservists tend to be more educated because many reservists are in college or have graduated from college. It’s quite common for NCOs/SNCOs to have college degrees and even graduate degrees in a reserve unit. I’ve met reserve NCOs/SNCOs who were college professors, small business owners, DOCTORS, engineers, architects and many other types of professionals.

        For these reasons, the reality is some of our best, most competent units are reserve units, at least in the Marine Corps. I can’t speak to the competency of the Guard infantry troops. But, it’s been my experience that Guard air defense and artillery batteries and Guard aviators have been very competent and well-trained.

    I can’t speak to the Army, but the Navy often assigns missions to the reserves simply because the Admiral’s think the missions aren’t prestigious enough to assign active duty Sailors to those missions.

    One reserve command I served in was a harbor defense unit. We were a headquarters outfit. We had a number of hand-me-down USA/USMC six-bys and a piece of kit called the Mobile Ashore Support Terminal (MAST), along with tents and other gear. The mission involved loading up the trucks, deploying to a harbor, setting up the command tent as well as our living quarters, setting up the MAST, and establishing a 360 dg bubble around, above, and below the surface of the harbor. Marine and Army forces were to patrol the landward approaches to provide security from that direction, various in-port, coastal, and larger craft and vessels further offshore would provide security among the ships in port and further offshore, aviation assets were to patrol overhead, and various units were assigned to detect and defend against sub-surface threats to shipping (submersibles, swimmers, marine mammals). We were supposed to provide the command, control, and communications.

    It was part of what was then called Naval Coastal Warfare. The brown water Navy was always the bastard step child since prides itself on being an ocean-going blue water Navy.

    This was an impossible mission for a reserve unit. People would have volunteered to drill for no pay at all on Friday evenings to get all the administrative tasks we were saddled with out of the way so we could concentrate on the mission but we weren’t allowed to for a variety of reasons. In any case a lot of the tasks required us to work with other commands (i.e. medical to make sure Sailors had their shot records up to date so the could deploy). Consequently every Saturday was consumed by department head meetings (and the department heads weren’t shy about expressing the fact there was no way we could achieve our training requirements while spending all day every drill weekend in meetings) and half the Sailors and Coasties (it was a joint unit) absent as they were making sure all their paperwork up to date.

    At some point we were supposed to load the trucks, drive a few miles down the road, set everything up, get the MAST up and running, confirm we actually knew how employ its capabilities, remain overnight, and tear everything down, reload the trucks, and RTB.

    We never did that once. We were the Third Fleet HARDEFCOM. The east coast unit in Second Fleet deployed to Egypt and it was a complete cluster f***. They like us had never once even practiced the mission because the Navy was doing everything in its power to make sure we couldn’t.

Two women and possibly 3 POC. Biden will have to do something now. If it was 3 WM he probably wouldn’t do jack.

It’s really too bad these three brave people had to die because the country is run by a bunch of incompetent morons

I feel sorry for americans forced to serve in biden’s woke military. Why doesn’t biden give military the support they require to properly do their job??

A drug addled career criminal died in police custody while resisting arrest, and burn loot murder riots rampaged across the nation, traumatizing the national psyche for years with fealty for their demands.

Yet, JoeBama gets three black soldiers killed who are honorably serving their country in a fustercluck of forever wars – and no outrage at all from so-called black lives matter leaders, or their sychophant politicos.

**clown world**

    Yes, I cannot wait for the burn loot murder crowd to get out of bed about 2pm to start protesting white supremacy that got three bruddahs and sistahs killed.

    Any minute now…you people!! 😂😂

    Laughing @ fustercluck. Thanks, we all need a smile on occasion. .

First of all, ditch those ridiculous berets.

Joe Biden is sending Iran a strongly worded message, through diplomatic channels, that he will meet them behind the gym after school.

…Oneida mentioned that the family expects a call from President Biden, and they have already been in contact with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and various lawmakers. She said they have to complete paperwork before they can speak to the President

I’m sorry, did she say “paperwork”? It’s been days, and he still hasn’t called? And he’ll only call when the grieving families fill out the correct forms? If this weren’t the Biden regime, I’d think this were satire—a government agency requiring paperwork to get a ‘condolences’ call.
