Don't knock it. Reinforces me in my belief that we have been getting away from being a military vice a civil servant union in uniform--a naval version of "E Pleb Nista"--for a while. Also reminds me of the message from about ten years ago by COMAVREGSW (or somebody) saying "you know, I'm an Admiral. I get saluted by the pier sentries. And so do a lot of other people. Fix the problem."

This is a good message. The closer we are in our military day to day routine to "Fort Apache" the better we will do in war. And I have no reason not to think there wasn't a need. Discipline, discipline, discipline. Taut and crisp. That's what we need to instill both love of service and resiliency in combat.

And as far as the King message...I agree, but let us not forget that Ernie's Navy still had cocked hats and epaulets as a uniform item, and wearing swords while on duty had only gone away within living memory. His was a military and officer corps sure of itself, not a politically-correct Jacksonian democracy at sea trying to please Washington mores above all else.

I mean, sorry for the stream of consciousness, but think back to "Tora, Tora, Tora". The battleship Nevada had a band mustered to play colors.

On a *Sunday*. Now that was a military.

Regarding my Nevada comment, I mean, can't you see it?

Chieftain: Conan, what is best in military lfe?

Conan: To have your ship disciplined enough to have the band playing morning colors. In whites. On a Sunday. As the bombs start dropping.

Chieftain: This is good.

Regulation stated-- CHECK. Expectation clearly defined -- CHECK. Standard set-- CHECK. This is a simple effective way to return to the basics. LIKE!

I drop a comment when I appreciate a article on a site or if I
have something to contribute to the conversation.
It is triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.
And on this article "Ummm ... about para 3.D.(2) .....". I was actually
excited enough to post a commenta response :-P I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to
keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list every one of all your communal pages like
your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

shoe lifts are not make up nor are they a style item, shoe lifts aren't a face lift and shoe lifts are certainly not a physique building course or a self defense course, shoe lifts are image enhancement precisely the same as make up, nail polish, hair combing or shining shoes, that is all
