    The question will be whether this guy was supposed to be armed (according to his command)..
    Really now...what units would those be...under orders to be armed at all times in CONUS.

    This is already running in the off topic section. Yeah, he was a SEAL. The question of the day is after this is over will he be able to say he is a SEAL?

    Ok when we are being transported armed, usually by coach weird i know, my orders say nothing about armed or unarmed. Now i cant speak for the "elite" units. With ccw, we are not allowed to when on duty status, even in civilians, the only exception is if we have our issued weapons. Now at that point i looked at the Maj. and said "Yea right sir, you try to ccw a M16A2." Needless to say everyone was laughing and i didnt get any punishment as i expected. Lol

    Nah! He wasn't really a SEAL--he was packin' a wimpy 9mm instead of a .45 (Sorry--I couldn't resist)

    After his stint in the psych ward I wonder if his buds/team mates will now give him a new team name??? Regardless of a new name or not, he is going to catch a lot of it for some time I suspect..........

    And when you are being transported like that how many civiliians are on the bus with you? How much ammunition were you authorized to be personally carrying? I would bet none. A buddy of mine was recently with 2BCT 1st Cav as (at various times ) S-3 and S-4. Part of his job was getting them and their gear from Ft Hood to various locations for training before deploying. This included getting the shipping containers and seals for the weapons, arranging rail transport for the armor, and arranging rides for the troops. If transport involved non government owned vehicles it was usually chartered busses. The only person on board that was not part of the unit was the driver.

    It is not like the military is going to drop a couple of guys and their weapons at the local Greyhound station to get them somewhere. They are way too tight on accountability for that sort of thing. Ask any of the guys that got to spend an extra three days beating the bushes looking for a lost set of night vision goggles, or the guys in North Carolina that came up short on their ammo count.
