This Is The Most Army Thing I’ve Seen All Week

Wednesday, November 15th, 2023

These photos were posted to Instagram by the 3rd Infantry Division. As a former Marne Man (yes, there two genders in the Army I served in) I can say that this sounds like some crap we’d have been doing after repainting bumper numbers (in the rain).

Nothing like turning in junk to get new junk.

“The U.S. Army is moving into a new era, and by getting rid of the excess equipment during the Rapid Removal of Excess Pilot– creating space for more modernized weapons,” said Randy George, Army Chief of Staff General. Soldiers assigned to 3rd Infantry Division have begun to identify and part with excess equipment within their companies. This is an ongoing process and will continue into December. Getting rid of excess equipment allows the units to better care for the vehicles they use more often and stay on top of the maintenance required for all equipment.

For those of you who are either socially awkward, slow on the uptake, or both, this is one of those posts where you can be yourself.

These photos were taken by PFC Rebeca Soria. Be kind to her, she’s just a PFC.

Ask SSD – What’s The Goofiest Emails You’ve Received?

Saturday, August 27th, 2022

Dear SSD,

I know you occasionally share on Facebook whacky emails you receive from readers. What’s the goofiest?

A Friend

Well Friend, this one isn’t the goofiest, but it’s up there. It came in about a year ago.


You Won’t Believe This One

Sunday, July 24th, 2022

Recently, Air Force Central’s 378th Air Expeditionary Wing issued this press release.

Yep, the “big guns” which consists of M4 carbines. I really don’t mean to make fun of stuff like this, but an F16 can carry over sight tons of ordnance and is equipped with a 20mm cannon. In light of that, there’s nothing big about an M4.

The real problem is what I’ve maintained for over two decades now, that the US Air Force is institutionally afraid of guns. They’ve got enough firepower to destroy any enemy several times over, but firearms weird them out.

Anyone Ever Get The Blue Ones?

The ubiquitous government issue Skilcraft pen. I always got the black ones but apparently they came in blue as well.

Beams x Crocs Classics

Wednesday, December 8th, 2021

You’ve probably seen these “Tactical Crocs” and thought they were an imaginary creation for laughs on social media.

I know FOB life isn’t what it used to be, but you can actually buy these. Japanese store Beams has teamed with Crocs to introduce four models of these clog inspired shoes which feature superfluous PALS webbing and pouches for your whatnots.

Get yours for that next CTC rotation at www.crocs.com/c/collabs/beams.
