THE POINT IS GANGS OPERATE ON A ANIMAL LEVAL, NOT ON A SOLDIER LEVEL.

The first time i heard of this (gang thing) was several years ago. I think the report was the first report was shortly after desert storm, but i didnt know what to make of it.I dont know what to make of it, it blows me away. I really hope the media is fibing a bit, but those of us that served in the early 80s and 90s seen the army change alot.{STAY WITH ME THIS MAY BE A LITTLE BORING}......... IN 1983 i was stationed in this little place called WILDFLECKIN GERMANY. anyway it had alot of seedy people there, drugs ran rappit, crime, just alot of bad people left over from the 1970s.our first sargent was so bad he was not aloud to be in the barreks after hours. We had a couple of guys that were actully MENTALLY RETARTED.. IM not kidding!IT got so bad the usar comander had to entervien, i remember we got a new comand, and a post comand. I had a similar experience in korea. anyway, my point is hopfully the troops will reject them the way we ask for change then. i believe people will always choose good over bad.thats how we became AMERICA.
