No Wonder ISIS Thinks We’re Weak

Two words, if “words” is the right word– Pokemon Go.

I was out earlier this evening on a quick four-miler (with pack, too) and instead of heading west out of town for the whole thing, I doubled back east in to town for a bit.

Pokemon idiots everywhere. ADULTS. Whole families. Most disappointingly, groups of young men.

Herds of bleating sheep, heads down and staring at little screens in pursuit of things that don’t exist.

Fortunately I didn’t see any VMI or USMC logos on hats or t-shirts. That was the only bright spot.

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.

    But the “game” might be a really good tool for training in the field to provide targets etc.
