    So, I saw this report on the news that just appeared and I wanted to be the first to congratulate the Armed Forces of the United States for the defeat of ISIS.

    So I am currently deployed under orders that say "not to exceed 180 days". The original deployment date was mid Sep but upon arriving at CRC I had to do additional training and wasn't able to leave until 1 month after I was originally supposed to. About receiving my amended orders, the only thing that changed was the day I was to leave CRC to deploy and the date to arrive at CRC stayed the same. Does my time at CRC count toward my deployment?

    Im 17 years old, junior in high school and I am interested in joining the Army Reserves. I am on here because I wanted to get different opinions and point of views from people. So what questions I want to ask are, why did you choose the Army Reserve instead of Guard? or vice versa, why did you choose Guard over Reserve? And also I would want to know the main differences between both the army reserve and guard AND the air force reserve and guard. If you could switch to another branch, which would it be? Why did you pick this specific branch and how was your recruitment experience?

    It's official: The U.S. Air Force will buy new wings for aging A-10 Warthogs that risked a one way trip to the boneyard. The Air Force has made clear its intention to keep the A-10 flying after concerns surfaced that the service was taking advantage of the issue to get rid of the iconic close air...
