Texas National Guard backtracks on report of food bank use
Austin American-Statesman
Texas National Guard officials said recently they have no indication that any Guardsmen received assistance from the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley. According to spokeswoman Lt. Col. Joanne MacGregor, a “proactive” family assistance coordinator “contacted the Rio Grande Valley food bank to see what resources were potentially available.” The Guard said it had identified 50 service members who, because of their early August start date, weren’t going to be paid until Sept. 5.

The Washington Post
Iraqi troops and militias aided by U.S. airstrikes broke through a two-month siege of the town of Amerli on Aug. 31, opening up a humanitarian corridor to thousands of Shiite Turkmen who had been trapped by Sunni militants and deprived of food, water, and medicine. “Amerli has been liberated,” said Mahdi Taqi, a local official who spoke by phone from inside the town after the army had entered. “There is so much joy and people are cheering in the streets.”

American Rifleman via The Daily Caller
One must remember that the U.S. Army studies everything. Odds are, if you dig deep enough you will find a war plan for the invasion of Canada. Not a likely occurrence. There have been stories flying around that the U.S. military will be soon adopting a new service handgun. Anyone with any familiarity with U.S. military — let alone U.S. military procurement — knows that nothing happens quickly. This is just a beginning of a very long process.

Army sees 'megacities' as the future battlefield
Military Times
When the Army looks to the future, it sees cities. Dense, sprawling, congested cities where criminal and extremist groups flourish almost undetected by authorities, but who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state. And the service is convinced that these “megacities” of 20 million or more people will be the battleground of the future. The problem from a military strategists’ point of view, however, is that no army has ever fought it out in a city of this size.

KING-TV

"What we object to, is that we are being taken down to a force structure level that we haven't seen since before WWII. And we think that's dangerous," said Major General Bret Daugherty, the Washington Guard's adjutant general.

Commentary: Nation needs its for-profit colleges
The Columbus Dispatch
By 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world." So President Barack Obama told Congress in his 2009 State of the Union address, when he called on every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. Those are laudable aspirations. But it is hard to see how the country can fulfill them, given the administration’s animus toward the for-profit colleges that provide the only realistic educational opportunity for millions of underserved Americans.
