    Some ex pro football player is fulfilling a lifelong dream of being in the army, and he'll be training right here at Fort Gordon! The article spelled Fort Gordon wrong....no surprise there. :garamet:
    Not a football fan, maybe some of you have heard of him. Yeah I think the new PT test the Army has now will be easy for this guy no doubt! Since he's been to college will he eventually choose to become an officer? I wouldn't put it past him.

    That said wasn't there a football player named Tillman who joined the Army? :unsure: I know that did not end well, but what are the odds of that happening twice? Anyway, when he gets here after Fort Sill I'm sure some sports fans might recognize him.

    I would prefer to lessen the odds and bring US troops out of danger for the purpose of bait or profit. Protect our country is awesome, and perhaps we can save some billions by stopping being the world police protecting oil fields. On a personal level I don't want to send any military person to protect an oil field.

    If we were going to use them in some way perhaps they could put their skills to use in developing some sort of acceptable housing for families and people waiting for asylum trials. I am not saying they guard them, but I think we could use the skills of people like the sea bees to produce some areas to hpouse people, and also use some of the medical and food prep people to provide them with food and shelter somewhere that is not a prison. These people came to america for a chance so see which ones are willing to que up in a reasonable situation and await their decision peacefully.
