U.S. Army fires


This short short vid makes me envious of the tremendous firepower the Army has at its disposal.

I know they were pushing the Marine Expeditionary Brigade concept real hard only a couple of years ago (seems to have fallen by the wayside...don't hear much about it lately) but I have yet to see any real deal exercises or wargaming with US Army units.

We practice all the time with foreign units but never with the guys just a few hundred miles away inside the continental United States.  If nothing else I can see a strong case being made to regularly attach Army Air Defense and Artillery units to Marine forces.  If for no other reason than to save money and not have to duplicate resources.

I don't think either service is too interested in that.  Too bad.  The Army would get wet but it would still be a win for them.
