Mama’s Fried Chicken! In Hot as Hell Mojave-land NTC?

Actually, during non-Summer months the high temps at Fort Irwin, California, aren’t that bad.  In the Gregorian month of May the average high temperature is 28C (83F).  A record high temp for May hit 42C (107F).  Back in 1998 I went to NTC with Idaho’s 116th Armored Cav (as a 13F with the 148th FA BN), and unfortunately it was during the hottest time of the year when the average high temp is around 38C (100F), and record highs hit 46C (114F)!  By the way, 1998 was one of those record setting years for high temps.

In 2014, TV personality Gordon Ramsay videoed the biggest cooking challenge of the show MasterChef at Fort Irwin, California.

Currently the Illinois, Kanasa and Mississippi National Guards are doing a three weeks ‘rotation’ at NTC, started right before the Memorial weekend.  What’re they going to eat?  Supposedly you get two yummy (not) MREs and a hot meal per day (reality is you could go days without a hot cooked meal). But Mississippi’s Militia cooks boast they’re up to the job of providing at least one hot cooked meal per day for the 3-thousand-8-hundred-plus Militia personnel on the current rotation, even going as far as optimistically promising Sergeant First Class ‘Mama’ Jackson’s fried chicken:

United States surrenders warships to Vietnam?

“Vietnam’s future prosperity depends upon a stable and peaceful maritime environment. The United States and the rest of the international community also benefit from regional stability, which is why we are here today, and it is why we are very pleased to be working together with the Vietnam Coast Guard.”-Ted Osius, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, 22 MAY 2017

Nemesis to the United States, Vietnam, got a new (to them) cutter warship from the U.S. Coast Guard.  Vietnam also received six ‘new build’ boats from the U.S. Department of State!

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau hand over ceremony in Hawaii, 25 MAY 2017.

The nearly 50 years old former U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau was transferred to the Vietnamese coast guard, under the name CSB-8020, on 25 MAY 2017 in Hawaii.

On 22 MAY 2017, U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius officiated over the presentation of six new 45 feet long Defiant patrol boats (built in Louisiana) to Vietnam in Quang Nam Province.

“This cutter [Morgenthau-CSB-8020] provides a concrete and significant symbol of the U.S.-Vietnam Comprehensive Partnership. The Coast Guard is honored to see this vessel continue to preserve global peace and prosperity as a part of the Vietnam coast guard.”-Rear Admiral Michael J. Haycock, U.S. Coast Guard

Ostensibly the ‘gift’ of U.S. taxpayer funded military boats to Vietnam is to fight smuggling, illicit trafficking, piracy and illegal fishing.  It’s more likely part of the U.S. Pivot to Asia military policy started under the Obama regime.

West Virginia Militia spends $3.7-million on a gate!

26 May 2017 (14:56 UTC-07 Tango 06) 05 Khordad 1396/29 Sha ‘ban 1438/01 Yi Si(5th) 4715

West Virginia National Guard’s 130th Airlift Wing revealed its new $3.75-million USD entry way (gate) to McLaughlin Air National Guard Base, as well as the West Virginia Joint Force Headquarters.

Major General James Hoyer admitted there were “security deficiencies” with the old base entryway.  Colonel Johnny Ryan added that it “will significantly improve traffic flow onto our installation and reduce congestion into the neighborhoods surrounding us.”

What did taxpayers get for $3.75-million?  A new sign, 4-hundred-square-feet guard facility, 1-thousand-6-hundred-square-feet inspection canopy with three inspection lanes, a driver waiting area, and a ‘rain garden’ to deal with storm water runoff.
