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. http://today.reuters.com/news/articlenews.aspx?type=worldNews&storyID=2006-09-22T204551Z_01_N22171610_RTRUKOC_0_US-ARMS-USA-AFRICA.xml
     
  2. Good idea, but one I am rather surprised is not already in place.
     
  3. I'm always a bit dubious about the term 'Region' Command.

    It could almost, if one were so inclined, to be interpretted as the belief of being in command of the region.

    I think US Military Command (Africa) is much more friendly and, importantly, accurate.

    You could even do it the RN way and make it into the world longest and most pointless acronym (STANAVFORMED).

    USMCOMMAF, anyone?
