Iraq - A Large National Guard Armory
We've gotten to the point where we are putting artillery men and scouts at roadblocks, and sending tankers out on patrol. One problem with that, a tank crew's small arms usually consist of pistols and maybe a couple of rifles (They mostly depend on much bigger weapons). So we are using AK-47's confiscated from the Iraqis.
You can always tell a Pointer, he's the one putting the best Army spin on things:
And of course, the 1st Sgt is there to help out his officer
So let me get this straight. We are dismounting tankers to run foot patrols, and we don't have weapons for them. SNAFU doesn't begin to describe this situation.
