More than just a football game. Our enemy is the Navy. In a perfect world, the various branches of a government local, regional or central should be able to cooperate and pull their resources together for the greater good. The world is not perfect. When it does not, one of the reasons usually is Interservice Rivalry, where at least two branches of the government don’t work well together, sometimes openly opposing and working against each other. Usually if the leaders of said branches know each other, they can’t let go of their past feelings and it intensifies the rivalry. Often in military fiction and in real life as well , some amount of Interservice Rivalry will be encouraged by the higher-ups, to promote a competitive spirit but sometimes it can get out of hand.

They take turns—the Navy, then a few years later the Army. This story is about the Air Force “rape” scandal circa What follows is a point of view I haven’t seen reported elsewhere; it’s written by a former A rmy Airborne Infantry Officer. For many this is going to be extremely uncomfortable to read. It has to do with responsibility, cause, intention, and communication.
Your challenge is to read the entire story, to be with, to choose to experience, the upsets that it triggers find the truth in it rather than argue with it.

FORT KNOX, Ky. — Every summer, nearly 8, ROTC Cadets pack up their ruck sacks, lace up their boots and travel to Fort Knox, Kentucky for 31 days of rigorous training, designed to push them.

These two men are Louis and Ludwig Reifsteck of Missouri. The two brothers are handsomely dressed in grey greatcoats and sporting red caps. Which brother is which I’m not exactly sure but a little research could answer that question as one brother is noticably taller than the other. One brother sports a buff white two-piece waist belt with his sash tied around the waist.
The scabbard hangs at his side for the ornamental sword which he shoulders. The other wears a US waist belt with a shiney new cap box and an empty bayonet scabbard. A small pocket knife which he has unfolded and open is tucked into his belt. The two brothers would head off to war together serving in the Gasconade Missouri Home Guard which would morph into the 4th Missouri Infantry. The regiment was made up almost entirely by German immigrants. This view probably dates to around that time as the unit was raised during the winter of and early part of January,
Under the Red Star
Commissars are tasked with the duty to maintain the morale of the troops during their massive campaigns, often in the face of staggering casualties. The Commissar is empowered to use any means necessary to ensure the loyalty and moral purity of his or her charges, including overriding or even executing a regiment’s commanding officer if necessary, and so is regarded with a mixture of fear and admiration by rank-and-file Guardsmen — and not a few of their officers.
Every Imperial citizen recognises the distinctive cap and greatcoat of the Commissar, whether from hab-block propaganda frescoes or grainy Departmento Munitorum recruitment picts.
Cadet Troop Leadership Training (CTLT), as the program is called, is an opportunity for cadets to temporarily join the U.S. Army’s formations during their initial entry training and gain firsthand.
Horst Wessel was an improvement on the original design. She was larger in dimension and her spars were all steel, unlike Gorch Fock’s wooden yards. She was the second ship in the class to be built, following the class namesake Gorch Fock. Rudolf Hess gave the speech at her launch in the presence of Adolf Hitler , and Horst Wessel’s mother christened the new ship with a bottle of champagne. He also wrote the song which came to be known as ” Horst-Wessel-Lied “, which was later used as the Nazi national anthem.
Mircea was also built in for the Romanian Navy, and work began on a fifth ship called Herbert Norkus, but was stopped with the outbreak of war. In the three years before World War II, she undertook numerous training cruises in the North Atlantic waters, sailing with trainee groups consisting of both future officers and future petty officers.
On 21 August , Adolf Hitler visited the ship and sailed for approximately one hour before departing.

In real life, power in any American and Canadian school is in the hands of the principal, the faculty, and the school district. And of course, each school is subordinate to the power of state and federal courts. Other jurisdictions, including Scotland, may have their own arrangements. To create the illusion of students having power over their lives at school, student councils are forged. In truth, these groups are largely figurehead posts:
This gives cadets going into their final years of pre-commissioning training the opportunity to experience life in an active duty unit. But short of that, cadets can end up in just about anywhere. Sometimes cadets are relegated to less-meaningful duties, or endure some modicum of hazing as part of the experience. I wondered how he, as a senior NCO in a highly specialized unit, felt about having cadets around.
I asked if he gave the cadets in his unit a hard time as part of their CTLT experience. Somewhat surprised by this, and thinking back to my own experiences in CTLT, I asked why he felt that way. Everyone knows that the lowest Army private outranks the highest cadet… right? I mean, that certainly seemed to be the case at Airborne School back in the day. This regulation shows that cadets rank after commissioned and warrant officers, but before NCOs. I learned something that day.
But having learned this, it made me wonder when this would actually matter in any meaningful way. Outside of authorized developmental training events such as CTLT, no NCO is going to allow a cadet to swoop in and take charge of his platoon, squad, or section. AR again provides the answer:
