    How are they going to fight Covid 19?

    Our fathers came across the prairie, fought Indians, fought drought, fought locust , fought dicks!
    Remember when Richard Dicks came in here and tried to give us a virus?

    From the linked article ;


    Gov. Gina Raimondo ratcheted up the measures Friday afternoon, announcing she’ll also order the state National Guard to go door-to-door in coastal communities starting this weekend to find out whether any of the home’s residents have recently arrived from New York and inform them of the quarantine order.”

    It will look something like that.

    We just beat that.

    My son and his buddy graduated as normal, came home for ten days, and returned to sit in quarantine for 2 weeks.

    They finally start combat training this Tuesday.

    That is a state action, which is what I’m worried about.

    Wonder if they will be armed with complete guns & ammo? Back when I was in the Illinois National Guard all the M-16 bolts were locked up @ a bank, separate from the guns. IIRC the O3A3 & Garand rifles were complete. Can't say about the M-60's & 1919's.

    We called them WAM. That was way back when.

    My wife's grandson was supposed to go to Navy boot but has been delayed.

    The red dot means logistics, but so much for every Marine is a rifleman.

    It's not law enforcement or application of force, so it is at least arguably constitutional.

    I'm imagining something like helping set up distribution centers for medical supplies, setting up field medical facilities, and medical personnel (like retired doctors/nurses/corps) for staffing them.

    At least I hope it's something like that. But after the Ohio State massacre and New Orleans after Katrina, I plan to be ready for other scenarios too.
