They came from Camp Echo in Iraq to Camp Virginia in Kuwait, for a short stopover before they head home to the United States for Christmas. "These troops are reposturing from Iraq, signifying the end of Operation New Dawn and the beginning of the next step in the future for the country of Iraq," said major Daniel Elliott. All US troops are scheduled to leave Iraq by 31 December, bring to an end nearly nine years of battle. US President Barack Obama marked the end of the war earlier in the week, meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The withdrawal caps a war in which nearly 4,500 Americans were killed, about 32-thousand were wounded and hundreds of (b) billions of dollars were spent.

A boonie hat, also known as a bush hat, is a form of wide-brim hat commonly used by military forces. Its design is similar to a bucket hat but with a stiffer brim. Often a fabric tape band of 'branch loops' is sewn around the crown of the hat. This 'foliage ring' is meant to hold additional vegetation as camouflage. A strap provides stability. The crown may be vented with rivets or mesh panels. Snaps may also be provided with which to fix the brim in the style of an Australian bush hat. The boonie hat was introduced to the United States armed forces during the Vietnam War, when United States Army Green Berets began wearing them in the field, along with Australian and Army of the Republic of Vietnam units. These leopard spot or tigerstripe boonie hats were locally procured, the camo cloth was usually salvaged from other uniform items or with the former from a parachute or made up by the tailor. In 1967, the US Army began issuing boonie hats, as the "Hat, Jungle, with Insect Net", made of cotton and wind-resistant poplin, in olive drab, tigerstripe, and ERDL pattern. It was meant to supplement and replace the patrol and baseball caps that had been in service since World War II. As the U.S. military evolved away from a garrison mentality, the boonie found a permanent place as part of the uniform of all services. The boonie has changed little through the decades since Vietnam and is still in use in Iraq and Afghanistan as an alternative to the patrol cap. The U.S. Military boonie hat has come in a variety of camouflage patterns; the current assortment includes US M81 woodland, three-color desert, UCP, and both desert and woodland versions of MARPAT, as well as the Air Force ABU pattern. The boonie hat is often worn with the wearer's rank insignia pinned to the front, above the branch loops.

A U.N. official said on Wednesday that Iraq has requested a one-year deferral of its final payment of 4 point 6 billion dollars in reparations for destroying Kuwait's oil facilities during its 1990-91 occupation. Kuwait and major powers on the ruling body of the U.N. Compensation Commission will consider the formal request at a special session in Geneva on Thursday. The official said "We have a request for a one-year suspension of the requirement to deposit 5 percent of Iraqi oil revenues into the compensation fund." Iraq faces a cash crisis caused by falling oil prices and war with Islamic militants. And with its economy set to shrink for the first time since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam and ended more than a decade of sanctions, Iraq can ill afford to divert a large chunk of the 2015 budget to make that last payment due next year. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/qRzdkqsEsIM/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The dual-edged Sangrador™ is a fixed blade tactical combat knife with a dagger style blade that serves one purpose. Let's hope someone rushing at you never finds out. You'd expect a knife like the Sangrador™ to be created by a veteran who's spent plenty of time in the field. An advanced soldier who knows what works and what doesn't. Darrin Sirois, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, is all that and more. Working with our Forged By War™ program, he created a knife that a Special Ops fighter would find invaluable. After all, he spent 11 tours in Iraq and fought in the Balkans and Panama. Sangrador means bleeder in Latin. And this knife takes its role seriously. A 5.5" dual-edged SK5 steel dagger style blade that has unbelievable penetrating abilities. Add Veff Serrations™ and you have a knife that feels as powerful at preventing attacks as it does cutting through cord and rope. A black powder coat finish resists corrosion and camouflages it perfectly in the dark of night. AKA: working hours for you. A non-slip G10 handle provides unbeatable grip in all conditions, even in sweaty hand-to-hand combat. Just slide it into your MOLLE compatible sheath with a compartment for extra accessories. Then prepare to go into battle with extra large force. When you want twice as much offense in battle, reach for the dual-edged Sangrador™. About the Forged By War™ program – In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them on the battlefield. CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War™ program. These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice. Mission ready tools that are, Forged By War™. Darren Sirois' charity of choice for this tool is the Purple Heart Homes. Filmed on location in Fayetteville, NC and Las Vegas, NV, 2016. Filmed and edited by Ben Petersen.

Key quote from President Obama:But for years, many veterans with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome) who have tried to seek benefits -- veterans of today's wars and earlier wars -- have often found themselves stymied. They've been required to produce evidence proving that a specific event caused their PTSD. And that practice has kept the vast majority of those with PTSD who served in non-combat roles, but who still waged war, from getting the care they need. Well, I don't think our troops on the battlefield should have to take notes to keep for a claims application. And I've met enough veterans to know that you don't have to engage in a firefight to endure the trauma of war. So we're changing the way things are done. On Monday, the Department of Veterans Affairs, led by Secretary Ric Shinseki, will begin making it easier for a veteran with PTSD to get the benefits he or she needs. This is a long-overdue step that will help veterans not just of the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars, but generations of their brave predecessors who proudly served and sacrificed in all our wars. It's a step that proves America will always be here for our veterans, just as they've been there for us. We won't let them down. We take care of our own. And as long as I'm Commander-in-Chief, that's what we're going to keep doing. Thank you.

Terrier Missile Launch from the USS Jouett. The USS Jouett had "Terrier" missiles, which were state-of-the-art in Vietnam for at shipboard SAMs [surface to air missiles]. On one occasion we were close to the North Vietnam coast during bombing raids on Vinh. After March 1968, President Johnson put all of North Vietnam above 20 degrees North Latitude off-limits for bombing missions. The Navy was confined to missions south of this no-bomb latitude. A lead Navy target was Vinh. Vinh was an assembly point for funneling arms south to the war below the DMZ. The North Vietnamese air force used an airfield called Bai Thong for marshalling Mig-21s for interdiction of our planes on bombing missions near Vinh. Late in the afternoon, when missions were being conducted against Vinh, the Migs would fly to the west and engage our aircraft when the setting sun was behind the Migs. One afternoon an F-4 flying CAP (combat air patrol) engaged a Mig-21. The command came from the commander at "Yankee Station" (carrier location in Gulf of Tonkin) to "take the Mig with the F-4. Our DLG had missiles on the rail with the Mig closing on our ship. The probability of a shoot down of the Mig by our ship's Terriers was around 96 percent (if my memory is correct). Ultimately the F-4 engaged the Mig and the Mig won the day by shooting down the F-4. My own feeling after that experience was one of sadness for the downed crew and anger for the arrogance shown by the commander at "Yankee Station". Two fliers were lost or captured when our missiles could have done the job without risking two airmen. In fairness to the Yankee Station commander, I never heard their side of the story but would love to hear that explanation some day. The F-4 crew would have probably preferred to engage the Mig, just like they did, knowing the risks. Our guys were gutsy and aggressive.

US aircraft carrier to visit Vietnam in post-war first SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z Source video: http://www.gulf-times.com/story/579460/US-aircraft-carrier-to-visit-Vietnam-in-post-war-f G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In a post-war first, the United States will send an aircraft carrier to Vietnam, Hanoi’s defence ministry said yesterday, a major demonstration of deepening military ties between the former enemies more than four decades after the Vietnam War. The announcement came during a two-day visit to Hanoi by US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that had been expected to focus on shared concerns about China. The proposed visit is set for March at the central port of Danang, Vietnam’s defence ministry said in a statement. Such a visit by a US aircraft carrier could bring the most US forces to Vietnam since the conflict ended in 1975. US officials were not immediately available for comment and no further details were available. The arrival of a US aircraft carrier in Vietnam will be welcomed by an emerging network of countries that are nervously eyeing China’s military rise, particularly its assertive stance and island-building activities in the South China Sea. The busy waterway is a vital global trade route linking Northeast Asia with the Middle East and Europe. In particular, the militaries of US, Japan, India and Australia are working more closely together as a “quad” of liberal democracies across what they now term the “Indo-Pacific” – moves driven by mistrust of China. US Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris last week described China as a “disruptive transitional force in the Indo-Pacific” after meetings with Japanese and Indian military leaders in New Delhi. India, Japan and Australia have all boosted military relations with Vietnam in recent years, with New Delhi providing advanced training for its emerging submarine forces and jet fighter pilots. Yesterday’s confirmation of the US aircraft carrier visit to Danang caps months of backroom military diplomacy between Hanoi and the Pentagon, diplomats said.
