Saying they were "shelled" by a M240 is a bit silly. Maybe they were also carpet bombed by an m203?

Who cares...I'm still waiting for the moon Nazis to retaliate for that pre-emptive strike we did on the moon a couple weeks back. You know, the one where we used the cover story about bombing the moon to search for water...yeah right, water.

Some of us know the truth.....


We just tried to get them before 2018.......so if they don't invade by then,we know we were successful.

Well it goes along with the Chair Force not knowing a plane was loaded with nuke's around the country a few years back. Luckily the support (hehe) branches, navy and airforce, still get that large amount of funding to waste while us Army guys figure out now to reinforce our own vehicles.... the only better spenders of government funds is the marines who are STILL using their Vietnam-era designed amphibious AAV's as their primary modes of transportation in the start of the war.

Navy enjoy your 10 billion dollar boat.. I'll keep my redesigned rifle from the 60s (no I would really like a new one; but if wishes were horses!!!)

My best friend's brother is on that ship. I can't wait to rag on him when he gets back. His Facebook status right now is "I'm dead tired". He's an officer, so he must have been dealing with all the crap over this all day.

No kidding. I remember in basic training the rifle I qualified with I had to tap the retaining pins back in every few shots to keep the thing from field stripping itself between rounds! We were still using Vietnam vintage M-60s (I verified some serial numbers for age when I was acting as armorer) in the 90s. Then I went to the national guard where things where the old gear was...

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the Commanding Officer is relieved as well. One thing with the Navy is that the CO is almost always held accountable, even if he isn't there.
The sailor who fired it is definetly sol. He will go down for gun decking I am sure. I doubt the co will get relieved. My ship rammed another US destroyer and neither CO lost his job.

I deleted the from, but this an email that was set to the ship the other day for one of the Polish officials that came to a reception on the boat....

I laughed out loud!

Thank you for visiting Gdansk, Poland

As a allied country in NATO we feel even more secure when we now know that you have all your weapons with security off when visiting us. We are glad for your diligent readiness and fast shooting ability for our security. But we have to say that we are very happy that you where cleaning the machine gun and not the missiles.

Welcome back friends..

That's Amazing.. gotta love the Polish and the might of the US I can even imagine care package of CLP and cleaning rags for weapon maintenance.

Been great if it ended with "p.s. please leave your thermo-nuclear weapons at home when visiting port!"
