Hey Kate Ramunni,

What the hell is the Pennsylvania National Army Reserves????

When did Pennsylvania become a nation?

Either its the Pennsylvania Army National Guard or its the Army Reserve which doesn't belong to a state like the National Guard does. His Army Reserve unit may be based in Pennsylvania but it doesn't report to the Governor like the National Guard does.

Are there no veterans on the CT Post staff that would catch this???

Wow. Didn't know Pennsylvania had a National Army Reserves. I knew about the National Guard, but not the National Army Reserves.

Do you have a Web site or something? How can someone sign up?

Maybe your editor can help?

While we're at it... you might want to check on the definition of the word "inactive."

Reservists who drill are not "inactive." They are "active reservists."

Inactive reserve is something else.

Funny thing about being in the reserves ... you can get called up.

I did my active duty time, but I'm still on the rolls in the reserves. I could get called up at any time. If I do, I do. I knew the risks when I signed on the dotted line, and so did this troop.

Life's tough. Get a helmet. It's not hard to find a place to store your furniture, and since he's going to be active for more than 30 days, he should qualify for BAH, which will more than cover his storage bill.

He is a bad cop any one who has ever had the displeasure to have come across him will agree. He lies, and pushes you around like you were the enemy his companion is Dyki. DR evil and mini me. Because Soules is only 5 tall and about 100lbs. The two together are trouble. They come to infuse a situation not defuse it. BAD< BAD< BAD

I know Gary. I really liked him, but things happened. I don't know why people would see that he's a scumbag, he's definitely not. He is really a great guy and I just hope he comes back ok.

Reservists and active duty military personel sign up to "Serve."
Its not just about being a weekend warrior and getting free training and college expenses paid for!
What do you expect?
In my 4years in the Navy, I was out at sea 85% of the time.
Get over it, people!

To Mike Reynolds post and the other jealous types-- you guys obviously have no experience with the military showing that you never heard what happened. When you are reactivated in IRR status, you can be placed with any unit that needs you while they are activating for a deployment.
He is a long time combat infantry veteran that wet to air assault school and was 101st airborne division, while you guys are probably cooks and truck drivers (POG's). You couldn't handle the front line through 3 combat tours like he did and on top of that get promoted to Sergeant by his units.
He is a sweet and caring guy that will treat you with respect if you are a half way decent person. I am SO glad he was able to make it home after all of that. He truly is amazing and a hero. HE fought so WE could survive... Remember that.
