Я думаю, ваши девочки - только и могли выбить Великих Американских воинов - индейцев! И то массой. А вы так - отбросы из Европыю Не люблю лицемерить

what a shame, because of the stupid pig-shorts, which had to kill 2 pieces - I have not had time to buy a tank with a 50% discount, because of the ban. Now it's just going to create accounts and kill boring:)

I have no idea what that guy said, and I'm too technologically illiterate to copy-paste into google translate.

His Russian posts are reposted Google translate English in his English post. Also, from what I can tell from another of his post in General Discussions, he got banned and is evading his ban by trolling around in a secondary account.

WOW. I had forgotten this.
Christmas 77, We were at OP Oscar on the East/West German border. (think it was Oscar). Had a freezing rain. Nothing was moving. Couple inches of ice everywhere.

Somehow, a local German family brought us a Christmas tree, decorations, and food.  They stayed with us for a bit, decorating the tree and having some food.

That was pretty cool of them to think of us at that time of year.

And here I was thinking that The Chieftain was some old grizzled cold war vet that stared down the Soviets across the Fulda Gap.  :o  That is so funny about the Kandahar (sp?) Airport security check point.  Good to see things haven't changed that much in 20 years.

Love your stories, chief.

Do you have a picture of that rink in Kandahar?  It would be a sight to see a bunch of Canucks playing hockey in a warzone.

That would rank right up there with the hot water maker in the Chally 2 for the Brits to make tea and the German toilet seat in their APCs.

You know, for the life of me, I don't think I ever did take a photo. But they're on the web.

I guess the only question I have to the Chieftain, I assume you weren't carrying frags?  If you were, the concern for the knife becomes even more hilarious.

And great story BTW.

My first year in I arrived one week before Christmas and ended up standing watch on board the day of Christmas. Some days I miss the old B-Bay, and then reason sets in. But God do I miss breaking ships out of ice.

I'm a little late on this but for many years I was on submarines and Christmas meant getting the gifts the wives and families had sent for us that had been stashed in a locker somewhere. Open your gift, if you weren't on watch.


There are no holidays on submarines underway. Just a fancier bit of slop for dinner. But mainly a sub full of thoughtful sailors doing their duty to God and Country.

On a sillier side note, one year a guy got a package that looked amazingly like the shape of a box that might contain ohhhhh say Johnny Walker Black. The Commanding Officer asked him what was in it. He said "who knows. Gonna wait and open it after my watch" and off he hurried. That CO was so clueless. :Smile-playing:

Any time someone asks me how my Christmas was I always answer "Great, I was home!"

So true.

When I was on a boat out of Hawaii we were told we would pull into Guam for a Thanksgiving. So we did. There were buses on the pier to take each duty section, one at a time, to the Air Force exchange so we could buy stuff. Then back to the boat. They held the exchange open just for us on Thanksgiving Day. God bless the people who volunteered their time to be there running the exchange for those few hours. When we had all gone and got back we cast off all lines and went back to sea for another 3 months. That was our Thanksgiving in Guam. :P
