    Military Matters

    This is a generic thread for all things military.

    Feel free to post random things to do with the military, both foreign and domestic and we can chat here about it.
    This thread is not intended to focus on one particular issue, but just a place to let off steam and discuss things such as different armies, weapons, footdrill, jokes, rumours, memories, you name it.

    Trolling will be ignored and reported.

    So I shall start off today with footdrill.
    What is your favourite aspect of it and which parts do you hate most? Have you seen the new Irish arms drill?
    What do you think?

    Here is a video of the best footdrill I have ever seen. The Royal Norwegian Guard. Simply amazing.



    Anyway, let the topics begin. It is hoped, this thread can me a magazine type thread with various topics of interests and good banter.

    It's a US battleship during WWII. Not sure of the exact ship.

    I have a suggestion for the military that would help the economy.

    Train every soldier to at least HND and degree level in various jobs, such as logistics, engineering, etc. Get them to serve say five years for having all education fees paid.

    That way the military would be churning out engineers, logistics experts, etc at a very high rate into the economy.

    That would help take Ireland away from being a call center to start the process of being a production center with increased value of workers.

    Just a thought
