Attention

Some of our newer members need to re-think your profiles. Please take a moment to go back and review the information you have placed there. Is that really how you wish to be thought of?

Please take the time to do it correctly with as much truthful information as you feel comfortable having in public.

Rules regarding such items will be forthcoming in the future. However, taking initiative is highly encouraqed in Special Forces...

Profiles such as "Somewhere collecting on your ass..." Will cause an SF Medic to do some collecting of his own.

Serious site for serious people.

Thumbs up Professional Soldiers ®

It is already apparent to me that this is shaping up to be what a professional military forum should be. I'm looking forward to learn from all of you.

Some of you apparently have either not read this thread or think we're just kidding. Well, we'll see.

They don't seem to understand that I'm the nice one. I'm in a good mood today, tomorrow I have an assault pack run with the dog through the poodle and manhole cover minefield. Let me fall and come back here and find a blank profile.

Lack of application, minus 10.

Failure to follow instructions, minus 20.

You are a No-Go at this station, return to the NBC Station.

Think I will see if I can figure out how to erase profiles tonight.

Is mine cool?

Getting kicked off a site in just a few days is a record I don't really want

Tomorrow seems like a good day to check profiles after PT. Seems like a Friday kind of activity. Yep, sounds like a real good Friday type activity.

Well, check conducted. 16 people now have new titles. Feel free to PM me to have them changed back after corrective action has been completed.

In case you don't know FTFSI means Failure To Follow Simple Instructions.

I didn't fall in a manhole this morning, hence, the opportunity.

Eagle, the Team Sergeant is a hard man - there is a case even tougher than the one you're talking about.

Again, Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a serious site for serious people.

Professional Soldiers Bulletin Board Rules:

1. Fill out your profile.
If you desire to engage a Quiet Professional in a discussion concerning issues you find interesting it is essential you fill out your profile. The Quiet Professionals are interested in knowing who they're discussing global terrorism with before they post a reply. While you need not submit your birthday, a year of birth helps.
