    The Army, facing another tough recruiting season, launched a $200 million-a-year advertising campaign this month and unveiled a new slogan: "Army Strong." The campaign's core message is that the Army builds not only physical but also mental and emotional strength in recruits, bonding them into a powerful, close-knit team. "There's strong, and then there's Army strong," a deep male voice intones as martial music rises from a brass band in the background. The television ads, launched nationwide for Veterans Day along with Internet placements and other outreach, omit all but the most fleeting images related to the all-volunteer Army's biggest...

    With the war in Iraq, higher energy costs and breakneck government spending, the GOP faces a tough round of congressional elections in 2006 unless things change, two key Republican senators warned during a campaign appearance. "I think if this were not an odd-numbered year, we would have great difficulties," said U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona. McCain and fellow-Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina were interviewed by The Associated Press when they stopped here Sunday night to campaign for Republican state Attorney General Henry McMaster. "But we can recover," McCain said. "Reagan recovered. Clinton recovered. We can recover."...

    Tin SoldierAn American Vigilante In Afghanistan, Using the Press for Profit and Glory By Mariah Blake In April 2004, a former U.S. Special Forces soldier named Jonathan Keith Idema started shopping a sizzling story to the media. He claimed terrorists in Afghanistan planned to use bomb-laden taxicabs to kill key U.S. and Afghan officials, and that he himself intended to thwart the attack. Shortly thereafter, he headed to Afghanistan, where he spent the next two months conducting a series of raids with his team, which he called Task Force Saber 7. By late June, he claimed to have captured the...

    "Where's your headgear, soldier?" said the sergeant major. Mauney stammered that he had been out on a mission all night and hadn't brought along his cap. "You're not coming in here," snapped the sergeant, according to Mauney. "Just because you're in a combat zone doesn't mean you can blow off Army regulations." A change in command last month at the forward operating base, or FOB, that serves as headquarters for U.S. forces in northern Iraq has dramatically altered the military culture here. A corps of disciplinarians that has come to be known to soldiers as the "Nine Disciples of FOB...

    Veterans React To Wounded Soldier’s BeatingSeptember 26, 2004 by Thomas D. Segel “This is outrageous!” yelled John Collick, a retired Marine First Sergeant from Yorktown, Virginia. He had just read an article about an unprovoked attack on a wounded soldier home on medical leave from Iraq. The Marine continued saying, “A young man who was wounded in Iraq is beaten by some of the very people that he has sworn to defend. Whether you agree with the war on not, attacking our servicemen, or watching them be physically assaulted, is anything less than cowardice.”The terrorist roadside bomb, which exploded under...

Pfc. England is due in military court at the base beginning Monday for a hearing on whether she should face a military trial in the case. Spokesman Maj....

    PRO-BUSH WAR PROTESTER EXPOSES ANTI-WAR PEACENIKS DAVE SOMMERS , Staff Writer 03/28/2004 When it comes to defending what he sees as President Bush’s correct stance in fighting the war on terror, Raoul Deming is about as proactive as one could be. In fact, he has attended nearly every rally on the East Coast in the past year, whether pro or con, and says he’s always ready to confront those who speak out against the president or scoff at any displays of patriotism. Just last weekend, Deming attended an anti-war rally in Fayetteville, N.C., where he argued with protesters and then...
