What a small world. I just met someone from the 82nd, posted at Bragg in '89. He tells a pretty good story of a drop into Panama, too. Wonder if he knew your father.


I made the jump in to Panama with the 82nd. Got my Purple Heart hanging under the 'chute before I hit the ground. Threw a claymore mine into a building full of PDF and set it off, since I didn't have any grenades. I guess the higher ups didn't trust us with them... I only had the one claymore... But it practically took down the building (or at least it seemed so at the time)! lol. Once I got patched up, I served at the 82nd Prisoner of War facility interrogating prisoners. Then I took over the Document Exploitation Center (going through enemy documents and such) and found Noriega's defense files in the Secret Police (DENI) files. He was already working on a 'defense case' in case we snatched him (much good it did him). Turned everything over to the Feds. Oh yeah, my team found his hideout in the jungle, but didn't have the manpower to take it, since security was so tight. Reported it to higher, and they were all "yeah, right... let's send another team to verify this." When they got there, Noriega was still there, and they were all "Holy ****!" So then they called in a platoon of grunts to get him. Once they got there, he had already flown the coup. I was hopping mad! We could have gotten that SOB early on if they would have believed us the first time we called it in.

Now, I want to try out that claymore trick! Sounds pretty nifty...

There are a few other tricks with claymore's I've heard about and used, but not that one...

And as for making yourself...while not really all that do-able in PB, have you tried the new version of Twilight2000 or the new (or old) version of BattleTech?

Anybody an 88C, 88K, 88L or an 880A or 881L?

These are watercraft MOS. I ran across the term "soldier-mariner" while digging into some WWII arcana. That lead to a claim that the US Army had more watercraft under its command in WWII that the Navy. (Depends on your definition of "watercraft.") That lead to the current Army vessels: some tugs, some landing craft, and some command ships. That lead to the MOS page.

Wiki-walks; they might just ruin your life.

And now I can't get the scene out of my head: a Coast Guard inland buoy tender and an Army tug cruising up and down the Mississippi, bickering and trying to maintain their craft and some semblance of law and order in a zombie apocalypse.
