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. Greetings to our cousins across the pond have a beer for absent friends.
  2. Next week is Memorial Day (the 30th but observed on the 28th so that the clueless can have a 3 day weekend.) Thanks for the shout however and yes, I will be meeting with some old friends that day and we will be making a toast to our brothers who didn't make it as well as those who went before and since.

    I'll be doing my annual Memorial Day activities.:

    On Saturday 26 May, My wife and I will meet with a Veterans organization that I'm a member of and place flags on the graves of all veterans at a local cemetery.

    Many Veterans organizations, Boy Scouts and organized citizens join in this activity. We are all assigned sections within the cemetery to work. We meet at 9AM and are usually finished by Noon.

    On Monday 28 May (Memorial Day) We'll return to the same cemetery to attend a Memorial Day ceremony at the POW/MIA Plaza, in the cemetery to take part in the ceremony and place a flower wreath, on that monument in honor of all departed veterans as well as MIAs/POWs.
  4. I take it all the anti war protesters have been out in force?
    Have a few beers for me.
  5. To absent friends.

    "Step forward now you soldier,
    You have bourne your burdens well,
    Walk peacefully on heavens streets,
    You have done your time in Hell.
