Mr Benton should have stayed in the Marine Corps. They pay you extra when you get married and have children.
Chechnya...didn't that used to be part of Chechnoslovakia?

And Skyline, although I agree with your sentiments, the M4 and M16 before it are not full automatic. They were modified years ago to give you a choice between semi-automatic and 3-round burst, which is not the same as full auto. The M240 has a full auto capability.

"But Army and Fort Bragg leaders at a forum in Fayetteville on Monday said the post, which has an annual economic impact of almost $11 billion in the region, could grow by 1,150 people by 2018."
You got it wrong. The projected growth of 1150 by 2018 was BEFORE the 2011 Budget Act reduced the Army end strength by 80,000. This projected growth will offset some the reductions at Ft Bragg, and mitigate the impact, but there will still be reductions.
Well done, Sarah and Morty!!!
