Here you will be allowed to forget that it is
Monday. Here you can sit back and enjoy the
rantings of our commentary author or even take
your turn on the soapbox.
Weather and the Military
Can the government control the weather? It always seems to rain when we go to the field. Remember
the adage: "It's not trainin' if it's not
rainin'". If they are controlling the weather are the american military leaders so naive to think
that combat is only going to occur during a week
long rainy spell? And only at 3 in the morning
for that matter?
How about the ignorance of the common soldier, thinking P.T. will be cancelled
because it is raining so bad you can't see 5 feet in front of you, only to have the rain stop 5
minutes before formation. Then, after running 5
miles, when it is time to go home, the downpour
continues.....forcing you to sprint to your car.
I have been in the military long enough to
believe that this is no longer a coincidence.
I now realize there are many things the military
can control, even weather. That just makes
America an even better place for me to defend and call home.
