You know what trade I am guys. There are more of (the collective) "you", than there are of us, but we are often more effective at getting the point across (bite now, over).

On the subject of military training and getting qualified, I believe it's a part of professional soldiering. MATTs and other Mil trg isn't just there to blunder through prior to ops to get that tick in the box, it's about maintaining and improving your skills and ability to operate effectively. It's about credibility too, how many times have you seen Corps guys deploying with belt kits hanging all over the place, and bergans that cadets would be ashamed of?

We, as a Corps are too keen on affirming what we are and what we are not:

Darkside or Light Side
OPMI or OPMI (L)
HUMINT / SIGINT / IMINT / Op Int and Sy
Transferee from (insert Regt / Corps here) and never got over it

And we all get really chopsy about it

Let's be flexible, versatile and able to turn our hand to, or at least remain open to other employment. Also, let's be good soldiers first, and excellent, specialist tradesmen (not "second", but) as well.

okay, so after 3 weeks it appears the Op Ints have it by a long way.



either that or some of the darksiders haven't figured out how to click and vote :)

Thats only because there are alot of old OP INT & Sy farts on here. Give it 10 years and OPMI will have it!

For the OPMI(L), I have checked thsi post for grammar and spelling!

Well you didn't check it thoroughly enough, did you? 'That's' is a contraction of 'that is', and therefore requires an apostrophe. Also, I think you checked 'this' post, not 'thsi' post.

it's funny. having met perevodchik over a beer or six, i find it hard to reconcile the fun-loving real life chap with the spelling & grammar Nazi who haunts these boards :)

i've come to the conclusion that perevodchik lets his wife use the PC and it is she, not he, who is picking up these errors.

wait for it...

Could start a new thread...I could post items and you (Darksiders) could check for typos and grammar, or any post I have I could send to deerhunter and perevodchik for QC before I submit...how's that?

Who said that I am a he?

you could save more time by teaching your guys not to fly to 35,000ft in a blind panic over absolutely nothing ;)
