Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Four Marines died over the weekend during combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan, the Defense Department announced Tuesday.

    Lance Cpl. Jeremy M. Kane, 22, of Towson, Md., died last Saturday. A reservist, he was assigned to the 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif.

    Sgt. Daniel M. Angus, 28, of Thonotosassa, Fla.; Lance Cpl. Timothy J. Poole, 22, of Bowling Green, Ky.; and Lance Cpl. Zachary D. Smith, 19, of Hornell, N.Y. died Sunday.

    Angus and Smith were assigned to 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C.

    Poole was assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines, out of Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. He joined the Corps in June 2007 and reported to Kaneohe Bay in December 2007. He was deployed to Iraq in 2008 and 2009, returning to Kaneohe in March.
  2. RIP

    God Bless
  3. Very sad - and how horribly ironic given the banter re the USMC we had on the US forum yesterday.

    RIP and Semper Fidelis boys.
  4. Thanks-a bad weekend all round.
