    There is no way I believe a Marine Corps veteran, traveling to bury his son at Arlington National Cemetery, embellished something like this.

    Nothing in the story says they were traveling to bury anyone anywhere. There is no mention of Arlington in the story.

     

    The family was traveling to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to await the Arrival of their sons body from Afghanistan. The pilot did a Outstanding job the father didn't embellished the story the media did.

     

     

    The story was told poorly. I didn't say the father embellished anything. Dover also isn't mentioned in the story, nor is the pilot.

  3. You're still sub-prime for insulting an entire armed service. You claim to know so much about tactics - yet you fail to realize that the Army and the Marines are all part of the same team. You make your team look bad when you claim the army is sub-prime. You see one fat guy in an Army t-shirt and just blanket the rest of us with the same evaluation.

     

    I realize now that no argument will convince you of the error of your ways because logic seems to be lost on you. I do thank you for your service, though. Just not your asinine commentary.

    Mr Mechanic you insulted the entire MARINE CORPS and the 50 MARINES that gave their life during desert shield/storm with that BS statement! And Konrad would never make his CORPS look bad but you certainly made your team look bad with your ignorance.


  4. It would be more accurate to state that the Army goes in while the Marines watch.

    In the Gulf War, The Marines were off shore, near Kuwait while we invaded. You guys were never actively involved.

     

     

    :rofl: NOT TRUE The Gulf War was the largest deployment of Marines since Viet Nam and prior to OEF & OIF! https://www.mca-marines.org/leatherneck/gallery/desert-shield-and-desert-storm-3 Good Day :wave:

    "He said that he had tried to use his personal debit card, but that it had not worked overseas."

    :D

    Debit is subprime. :D
    The Army is subprime
    Why would you say this? Criticize this general all you like, but please don't paint the entire Army with the same brush.
    LOL. You think you're a better judge of military matters?

     

    If the Army prime, we'd call them Marines as well.

     

    Yes, I do think I'm a better judge of military matters. I was in the Army. Good men, most of them. Some knuckleheads, sure. Every data set has a few knuckleheads. That doesn't mean they are all "sub prime".

     

    Nice. What was your MOS?

     

    Have you fought alongside Marines and Sailors?

  6. Wells Fargo Bank will pay $4.1 million to settle allegations that it illegally repossessed 413 vehicles owned by service members without obtaining a court order, the Justice Department said Thursday. The settlement, which covers repossessions from Jan. 1, 2008 to July 1, 2015, https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-reaches-4-million-settlement-wells-fargo-dealer-services-illegally

    I'm obviously just doing it as a geek thing, seeing how close I can get to 850.

    FICO 8 scores in the low 800s have a good chance to get there.

    Just to clarify, closed positive installment loans (personal / auto / mortgage) will not skewer the results, right?

    Correct.

    That's my understanding as well. If you have open installments, it's a moot point. Closed or none you will see a gain.

    And whatever, it's 6% interest on $50. We pay (or paid) for daily pullers, we pay (or paid) for monitoring services, I pay annual fees for D* cards I don't need. I gave a valet a 5 spot for not charging me for parking an hour ago and just paid $10 for a Pliny the Elder DIPA.

    The MFers thead talks about how the biggest gain would be if nobody has any closed installment loans reporting. It goes on to say that if you have old, closed installments reporting that your gain wouldn't be as high.

     

    Any results from people here that have tried this with old, closed installments already reporting?

     

    I had 2 closed installments reporting prior to paying down my open SSL to less then 9% and pick up 30+ plus points on all 3 CRA's

    Does the NFCU CLOC count as an installment loan as well? So that would invalidate this method if you had the CLOC? If that's the case would it make more sense to jump through the NFCU hoops to get the CLOC and then put 5% on it, and leave it with that 5-8% balance?

     

    I don't know how it reports, just figured this was the right place to ask. And for most a membership with NFCU should be the first thing they do, especially if they are rebuilding.

    NFCU CLOC is revolving not installment.

     

    You could probably get the same bennies from an NFCU installment loan except you might get an HP for it.

     

    NFCU Shares Secured Loan terms go up to 180 months/15yrs at 3% int or 60 months/5yrs at 2% int

    Semi-automatics are only for chAir Force. And Camp Fire Girls. The rest have fully automatics.

     

    If it's any consolation, though, the SecDef is gonna authorize a pilot program to allow zoomies fully automatic pencil sharpeners. As long as efficiency improves and the casualty rate is low, they might agree to make it permanent.

     

    All of our M16A2's and M16A4's were S-1-3. And I believe the USMC transition is to M4's (S-1-3), not M4A1's (S-1-F)

     

    The Army has had nothing but problems with their M4A1's. A bunch of undisciplined soldiers given a light profile 14.5" barrel weapon with a short carbine length gas system...and oh lets make it full auto so it overheats and fills up with carbon. The M4A1 was designed for SpecOps for suppressive fire while breaking contact. There's no need for a rifle company to have everyone carrying a full auto weapon. They keep needing PIP's to make them work properly. Now they have heavier barrels and buffers.

     

    I figured zoomies would have those little mechanical pencils that cost a lot of money. Like an F35 pencil.

    Just remember the army was in Fallujah first

     

    Affirmative, the 82nd Airborne was the first US unit to enter in Apr2003. Several weeks after, the 82nd Airborne lit up a crowd of non-combatants, killed like 20 and wounded 100. And so the stage was set.

    Let the butt hurt flow, the force is strong with this one

     

    2004 and Al-Fajr was no picnic.

    You can call and have the Signature benefit add to the card since its at 5k
    It should be automatic if that is the starting limit.

    Yes its a 5k start limit what do you mean call for the benefit ?

     

    With a 5k limit you qualify for the signature version of the card which you should automatically receive.
