Weaponswise, they are probably flying into another country where they will get thier gear on and get onto C130/C141 to go to thier final(hopefully temporary) destination. Where they will get out of the plane and start kicking the Sh*t out of bad guys!

Can there be any doubt that this is the right man,in the right job at the right time? How in the heck is Kerry even above 30% in the polls against this guy?

This is a man of true leadership. I can hear the left now, "He's politcizing our troops deployment!" The troops love their CIC. Can't help but wonder the reception if Lurch would have boarded that plane.

I had a good seat for the Rally. Part of the top of my head is cut off but I'm in here. AMD's whole head is cut off.

Turn out was fantastic and the protestors were pathetic outside.

I can definitely imagine the reaction. And I can commiserate with the poor airline employee who would have to remove that brand new obstruction from the aircraft lavatory.

If it was like when I flew, the bolt is in your pocket and the weapon on the floor.

I am almost sorry I had the day off from work today...had I been working, I would have been on that plane with President Bush. I work for the company that catered that plane and my co-worker Melvin got to do the plane instead. Oh well, I wouldn't have missed that rally for anything. (Except Church, that is,)

They are generally stored on the floor in front of their seats or stowed in the belly luggage compartment.

"Their weapons are in the baggage compartment, Robert"

I wish you didn't clear that mystery up!

Another note, Kerry is reviewing his day. I bad mouthed a leader in Iraq and Vice Pres. Cheney spanked me for it and the President was visiting the troops.
TERESA, WHERE IS MY VODKA!!!!
John, just shove it..............

"TSA swiped `em. Security risks, donchaknow. Can't have those soldiers hijacking the plane." TSA would not be allowed to screen the weapons. They would be guarded by soldiers and loaded into the underbelly by the soldiers themselves, escorted by TSA. As long as they have orders and are being deployed, which they are. Usually they ship them in big wooden crates with a mean looking soldier as a guard. Kinda cool to watch.
