„Mountain Krauts & Bridgeport“

„Mountain Krauts & Bridgeport“– the subject line on an email MDL tossed our way today. (He being a former instructor at Bridgeport, back in the Old Corps.)

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.

    Agree with the Professor. Is it just me or is the long rifle the arquebus of the future?

    Yeah we don’t have Mountain Troops in the US Army. To be skilled at this takes years of training. The French are very good, I was lucky enough to go through their mountain school in the winter of 2009 while on exchange at their military academy.
