Bring the HEAT!

On Bring the HEAT, Bring the Stupid, XBradTC provides me a place to discuss more “modern” military history.  Here’s some of those posts, arranged by topic (NOTE: XBrad recently updated his service host, so many of these cross-posts were lost when his site could not migrate.  I’ll try to bring in those links via the “way back machine” as time permits):
