    Much ado about nothing...


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Hate to break it to you, but we have foreign militaries training here all the time.

    We've got two foreign squadrons stationed here at Luke to train permanently.

    It takes a college degree to break'em;
    and a high school education to fix'em!

    +1,

    Just about every "A" School class has one or two members from foreign militaries.

    It's nothing new.

    They have been doing that stuff for as long as anyone can remember. I lived next door to a bunch of Saudi air force pilots back in 1982 when I was in college.

    When I was stationed at Lowry AFB in 1972 we had a whole bunch of Iranian AF stationed there attending schools. About every base/post I was on during my 26.5 yr career had foreign military assigned at one time or another. Very common.

    Nothing new. Back in 1984 I earned brownie points with my battalion C.O. by locating a platoon from El Salvador that had been "misplaced". I also recall seeing West German marked Tornadoes parked with some Air Guard stuff at BWI airport.

    Due to wide open spaces in the USA, not available in places such as Western Europe, foreign troops from allied nations have been training here for DECADES, and I mean large units of troops, not just individuals and small units.

    I remember an article from the 1970's, IIRC, or perhaps the early 1980's, which was about German troops here on NATO exercises in some western state, complete with their tanks and such, including their small arms, which included Uzis, which I found curious. It seems the Germans were compensating for the Holocaust, in part, by buying some small arms from Israel.

    It said nothing about foreign troops participating in this exercise on U.S. soil. It talked about intelligence gathering and sharing among countries. As others have said foreign military have trained here for many years. When I hear of a foreign force acting as a police agency then I will get agitated.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    You would be surprised just how many tin hat's out there go nuts over this stuff, they think it is all new and go off the deep end when you tell them what you said....

    Ever heard of little outfits called NATO and NORAD??

    Exchange programs are common. Ours guys (and girls) work with yours and your guys (and girls) work with ours.

    In fact, if you watched the Cheyenne Mountain Norad tour on Mail Call with Gunny Ermey, you would have noticed a Canadian in command.

    And of course there are certain benefits to having these foreigners come visit that the general public is not aware of. When I was younger one of our neighbors was the Naval Attache at the Australian embassy. Them Aussies make some fine beers down there and they can be quite generous with them!
