    Yep, this enemy is a right bunch of hoors....it's gas, all this discussion about the hoors invading, the hoors doing this and that.....and none of these lads get it. I'd bring up the war cry, but it might be too much for these feeble minds.

    Haven't been to 6th st in a while, seem to think Crocodile Rocks is closed though, and yep, it's a great place to live.

    A lot of these papers that are written as part of the C & S Course end up in the
    Annual Defence Forces Review book each year

    Some of them are quite good reads, others are mind numbingly boring.

    Irishrgr, I' ve been in Austin with the job - great city !!!

    "Crocodile Rocks" on 6th Street was a great spot although I believe it' s
    closed down now ?

    Ahuristan? Probably elements of Limerick, Tipperary, Kerry, Clare and a few odds and sods rolled up in one harmonious, peaceful country.With added Kalashnikovs and a rebel yell along the lines of "up, ya boy, ya!"

    Yeah, I've read some of the papers some of these lads write, I actually used on in a grad course as a source. It seems there is one Irish Commandant at the Command and General Staff College (CGSC) in the US every year as part of the international contingent. I'm sure most of the lads Ireland sends are the "high flyers" destined for greatness.

    CT, I'm doing the Reserve version of ILE, finishing up the final phase in San Antonio, done this weekend, tired of writing papers, reading Army crap and dealing with some of the dumbest Majors in the Army. Honestly its scary to see who can make it to the grade, doesn't do much for your faith in the Army system.

    If you pass through Austin, drop me a line......A

    Of course, this was June 1992, so he's probably moved on a bit since then...

    How's the place treating you? I've got another month to go here in Knox at MC3, will be taking the scenic route back via TX in AUG.

    CT, the afore mentioned officer is now a full Colonel...

    started a topic Ireland in Staff School

    Ireland in Staff School

    So I'm trogging through the final week of the Army Staff school and we begin our graduation staff exercise planning for a UN sponsored, US led coalition to prevent the fictional country of Ahuristan (who's population are known as the "hoors" much to my delight) invading it's fictional neighbour. Bear in mind, this is all fictional, so don't get too excited. The UN already has a force in place, a BDE sized element led by the Irish who have also provided a Bn. Nice to know our lads are getting a look in at the Staff Course, eh?

    In other related news, the US Army annouced it's annual applications (for active only) for the various foreign staff schools for Majors. On the list was the Irish Army Staff Course at the Curragh. One lucky US Major gets to spend 9 months or so there on Uncle Sams dime, must be nice. Naturally these courses are not open to reservists........

    Ireland can rightfully claim it is "on the map" when you get a look in at the Command and General Staff Course...!!!!!!
