howdy all,
with all these pic of kit in serious use, i thought i would add to the fray. since i have been relegated to being a deployed REMF, my kit has had to be downgraded to lunchbox status. mind you, my Navigator is the most sturdy, comfortable PX shopping cart i have ever owned. i just cant get enough tea...

set your phasers to flame...

OH well no everyone can be combat arms, atleast u're part of the Kifaru gang.

Joelies -

Nice ruck. Don't worry man, I don't think there are really any REMFs anymore.

Take care and keep your head down.

I looked at that picture and thought to myself "who would make a drink called Alimony?"

I need more coffee.

Hey brotha, you're there doing the voodoo!! No REMFs on this battlefield! Be safe and enjoy the Navigator! I took my marauder to Iraq with me and loved it!

Bouncing Souls or Say Anything reference? (Or both?)

Hey bro, I'm a kifaru equipped REMF too, no shame in that, I guess somebody has got to do it. Some choose to and some don't, just try to keep a Soldier's mindset and don't fall into the non-shootin, fatass internet surfing, desk riding REMF way of life. Nice Navigator!

OK fellas, I can keep up with most of your stars and stripes, mom's apple pie jargen but what is a REMF? I would imagine that it is the equivalent of our Aussie POGO? (From the early English military of "Posted On Garrison Orders").

I'm seriously surpised you haven't heard of REMF before Thommo, I've heard other Aussie AJs use it.

Re POGO - I understood it was rhyming slang as in what starts with 'P', rhymes with "pogo stick" and is used to describe the male genitalia?

One of us is being told fuphies.

I think it is a generation gap thing!

Perhaps I need to start a post for acroynms on this site, there must be some old farts out there like me who can't keep up with all this new lingo!

Dont sweat the REMF stuff. I'm a combat arms guy, and you are a hell of a lot closer to the **** that I am.

Stay safe.

WHat do u mean "Generation Gap" my dad was using that term since Vietnam, and it's stil being used today in the Army atleast. Although it has gone a bit to the wayside as FOBITS has become quite popular over here in the sandbox. And to think my wife always said i was wasting my time on sioghts liek this, i helped someone learn somehting new.

Thommo and I are in a different country.

So the generation gap he refers to I think is from one generation of Diggers to another, not one generation of GIs to another.
