The M16 rifle and it derivatives, variants, and generations. The M16 rifle is the main service rifle of the U.S Armed Forces since 1969 until today. It saw action on many major wars, from the Vietnam War (where it was notorious for it poor reliability) to the Global War on Terror. Due to it futuristic shape that was way ahead of it's time in the 60s it's often nicknamed as the "Space Gun". The M16 and M16A1 served from Vietnam until mid 80s, when it was replaced by the M16A2. The M16A2 then would serve for 20 years, and saw action in the Gulf War, Somalia, Kosovo, and the early stages of Iraq War, when it was replaced by the M16A4 and it shortened variant, the M4 Carbine. Early reception for the first generation of the rifle was very poor. The rifle often jammed in the heat of the battle and lacked forward assist and cleaning tools to deal with jams (which was because it was advertised as self-cleaning rifle), which caused many G.I.s to lost their lives. The rifle was then improved over time, with the arrival of M16A1, which include forward assists and brass deflector, and later the M16A2, which improve the accuracy and utilize the new M855 ammo. The M16A4 is the latest of the evolution of the rifle's main family, which include Rail Interface System, making it suitable for multiple combat situations. M16's carbine variant, the M4 (and its full auto variant, the M4A1), became the main service rifle of the United States Armed Forces. It shortened length and lesser weight, which both are important for urban combat scenarios that the U.S force mostly encountered today, are the primary factor of this switch. m16 m4 ar15 m4a1 gun weapon america secondamendment firearms 556 boom fuckisis military police cqb army marines usa usmc troops

Starting off my morning with my bible study Lord Change My Attitude and Elvis. I Have noticed when I start my morning digging into Gods word and giving him thanks for the day my whole attitude is more positive and uplifting. My day has more purpose. My takeaway from today was 3 reasons we should give thanks to God. 1. God answers YOUR prayers 2. God gives YOU hope 3. God is still working on YOU Happy Wednesday 😊 : : : : : : : : : : : :stayathomemom athomefitness momswhoworkout motivation inspire havingfun marinewife reachinggoals momoftwo girlmom boymom healthy workingonme militarywife loveyourbody timetogetfit chasingdreams fitness healthylifestyle postpartumjourney postpartum marines shareyourstory love loveyourself fitfam momswhoworkout igotthis mykidsareeverything startingthedayoffwithGod

Comment from Observed In His Native Habitat:


It's a harrowing feeling standing in front of memorials from the war you served in. In my head I'm still too young to be "a part of history." Maybe that feeling will never go away. This is a section of wall that was taken from an Air Force base in Iraq. My squad would often visit that base as we were stationed near the area. I didn't personally sign this wall nor did I ever visit the medical team where it was taken from but, the miles and the years I've put between the 19 year old soldier version of myself and the now 33 yr old family man version of myself leave an incredible distance for the mind to fall through in moments like these when I am so blatantly confronted with the memories of my time in war. Indeed I have grown past those experiences, but the ghosts of those days still linger in my mind. "A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands, love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper; his hands remember the rifle." - Jarhead war veterans army airforce navy marines terrorism america

New blog post--like most things military life related, 'settling down' after retirement was another transition I wasn't necessarily prepared for. Can you relate? http://jenmcdonald.net/jen-mcdonald/2017/8/14/4-things-i-learned-while-househunting-after-military- (link in profile)
