Be prepared for that battle.
Nope. The first nonlethal return shots were fired in 1995, and caused some 11 million dollars worth of damage. The first lethal response was on 11 October, 2001.
God bless both these men.
Both, I think. I'm guessing the kids- young men in responsibility if kids in years- to be about 14 years old. Their Vintovka Mosina rifles are likely the early 3-line rifle, Model 1891, with a longer [800mm barrel than the more usually encountered M91 and M91-30 Mosin-Nagant rifles of the WWII period. 1,306 meters overall, 1,738 meters with bayonet.
Thanks - I thought they looked like “early teens”, if not younger, but wasn’t sure.
Look likke circa 13-14-year-old Civil Air Patrol cadets to me.
Can you be more specific?
It's buried as the last paragraf of the story:
Peacekeeper has been hit with other calamities. In 1995, the Air Force investigated the apparently random shooting of a Peacekeeper missile carried by train from Wyoming to California. Once at Vandenberg, crews discovered the bullet holes in the first and second stages causing about ,11 million damage.
I have an close friend that spent several years at Kwajalein.
Thats a pretty good alibi!
I’m not a radar and electronics expert, but my friend is.
*sigh*, I was given that questionaire. It was before 1996 tho - when I left my Btry. I remember being really busy that day and someone grabbed me out of the blue and told me to sit down and take this survery out in front of the PX at Camp Wilson (staging area for heading out into the boonies) really quick. Since it was really an out of the blue thing I remember being highly confused/offended by the question but I dont remember answering it.
Thanks for your reply. I’d almost forgotten what I said about this issue. I’ve been taken to task by a couple of posters who said I had my head up my rear on this and that I had the date wrong. Now comes your comment which suggests to me that this questionnaire may have been administered more than two or three times. I do notice that I did have the date wrong in my original post. I typed 1998 or 99; what I meant to type was 1988 or 89. I was living in Baltimore at the time and was corresponding with a retired General officer about this very issue. He confirmed the fact of the questionnaire and was quite upset by it.
Thanks for your reply and thanks for your service.
right on FRiend.
