Soldiers of the US Army 19th Special Forces Group, based at Draper, Utah, are shown in training in "Silent Warriors" a 1961 episode of the US Army series "The Big Picture." Sequences include martial arts demonstrations, firearms training, archery practice, scuba diving, rock climbing, skydiving, and training in ice and snow.

Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

"We Were Soldiers" Veteran Is Reunited with his Captured AK from Vietnam
TFB TV


Published on Nov 9, 2017
We've covered the story of the Dillon AK on TFB previously on the blog and due to the efforts of a faithful reader that actually put us in touch with Col. Dillon we were able to actually sit down and interview him about his service in the 1st of the 7th Cavalry, infamous for heroic actions in the Ia Drang Valley under Col. Moore. But in particular, Dillon shared with us the story about how he captured an early model AK47, carved his initials on the stock, was forced to abandon it, and then its miraculous journey to the National Firearms Centre in the United Kingdom.

This video and interview was only made possible by the gracious efforts of multiple people involved:

Col. Dillon and his family for accommodating the interview request.

Jonathan Ferguson of the National Firearms Center

Trevor Weston of the National Firearms Center

TFB reader Mike T. who found Dillon's contact information

Harrison Bresnahan (Bresh) for constantly reminding me of 2/9's inferiority complex in Sangin. Thanks man.

IS THE AGE OF THE SUBMARINE OVER? || WARTHOG 2017
Warthog Defense


Published on Nov 12, 2017
S’pose Bryan Clark has it right. The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) analyst and retired U.S. Navy commander postulates [3] that a technological revolution is about to overtake undersea warfare [4], rendering the wine-dark sea transparent to hostile antisubmarine (ASW) forces for the first time. This would be a bad thing from the standpoint of U.S. naval mastery. It would place in jeopardy America’s capacity to execute an ambitious foreign policy in distant waters, preside over the liberal maritime order, or accomplish all manner of worthy goals.

By Kris Osborn,

The Army has upgraded the power of its emerging Stryker-mounted laser weapon to 5kW and confirmed the new weapon's ability to incinerate numerous enemy drones and launch offensive attacks during ongoing testing at Fort Sill, Okla., service officials said.

No bullets were fired, and no sounds were made as the experimental laser, called Mobile High-Energy Laser (MEHEL), destroyed drone targets during recent testing, according to an Army report.

World War 2 Training Film | Why Keep Your Rifle Clean | 1943

This World War 2-era dramatized military training film – originally titled as "Fighting Men: Keep It Clean" – was produced by the US Army in 1943. It demonstrates the importance of keeping the rifle clean.

The film warns American soldiers that they must keep their rifle clean, or face the consequences. The lesson is told through letters written by soldiers who experienced issues due to their lack of care with their weapons. The film also shows re-enactment of combat situations where soldiers were unable to fire their rifles because of their negligence, nearly costing them their lives.

The film teaches not just how to fall with a rifle, but also how to lay it down correctly and keep it clean, because it can save your life. It also contains scenes of the famous blindfold training where troops are asked to put their weapon together and take it apart in total darkness.

The hand weapon shown in this short film is the M1 Garand, a .30 caliber semi-automatic rifle which was the standard US service rifle during World War 2. Most M1 rifles were issued to U.S. forces, though many hundreds of thousands were also provided as foreign aid to American allies. The Garand is still used by drill teams and military honor guards. It is also widely used by civilians for hunting, target shooting, and as a military collectible. Frequently referred to as the "Garand" or "M1 Garand" by civilians, its official designation when it was the issue rifle in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps was "U.S. Rifle, Caliber 30, M1" or just "M1" and Garand was not mentioned.


BACKGROUND / CONTEXT

Firearm maintenance (or gun care for short) is a series of periodic preventive maintenance procedures aiming to ensure the proper function of a firearm. Typically such maintenance is performed by the owner of the firearm using either simple methods such as cleaning the firearm with oil or other cleaning solutions, or more sophisticated practices such as lubricating moving parts with oil/grease and recoating exposed surfaces with protective finishes such as varnishing or bluing.

When a firearm presents with physical damage related to the ordinary use of the firearm, or when a firearm malfunctions, a professional gunsmith should perform advanced maintenance to determine if the firearm is repairable and/or safe to shoot anymore.

Necessity:
An inadequately maintained firearm will often accumulate excessive fouling and dirt within the barrel and receiver, which not only can clog up the rifling and decrease the firearm's accuracy and precision, but can also interfere with the proper operation of the action and lead to potentially dangerous malfunctions. Furthermore, some of the foulings and dirts are either corrosive themselves, or capable of making the firearm vulnerable to rusting and wears, and thus can lead to irreversible damages to the firearm over time.

Cleaning:
The ordinary firing action releases fine particles of gunpowder, metals (mostly lead and copper from the bullet moving over the riflings) and other contaminates into the inner spaces of a firearm, which may cause malfunctions or in rarer cases of extreme buildup may raise the barrel pressure too high causing the firearm to explode upon being fired. It has been widely reported that firearms without a spring to control the inertia of the firing pin require constant cleaning of the bolt assembly, as extremely dangerous phenomena such as slamfire may occur. Slamfire is a malfunction in which a firearm which is normally semi-automatic may temporarily and involuntarily become fully automatic, firing repeatedly – without another pull of the trigger – until the firearm is out of ammunition or jams.

Lubrication:
Firearms produce massive momentary forces upon firing a bullet. A typical 9mm projectile produces a maximum of 34,084 psi (2,350.0 bar) of pressure in the instant of firing. The amount of pressure a firearm may endure for the first few milliseconds after the cartridge fires can be over 2,300 times more than the normal atmospheric pressure. Therefore it is important for the safety of the shooter, and the longevity of a firearm that it is properly lubricated.

FIRST CAVALRY DIVISION IN VIETNAM THE BIG PICTURE TV SHOW 56814
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Nov 18, 2017
Produced by the Army Pictorial Center as part of The Big Picture TV show, this 1969 episode “The First Cavalry Division (Airmobile)” is “the story of how air mobility is helping the First Air Cavalry, the ‘First Team,’ win the battle for freedom in Southeast Asia.” By 1965, helicopters are used for more than just transport; they are a crucial element of combat (01:01). Helicopters allow for fast and powerful mobilization, so it is only natural that the First Cavalry Division, renamed the First Cavalry Division Airmobile, is the is the first to use them in combat. Airmobile combat was developed and tested in Fort Benning Georgia and tried out by the experimental organization 11th Air Assault Division, prior to activation of First Cavalry 1 July 1965. The First Cavalry is deployed to Vietnam and sets up base set up at An Khe (03:07), also known as Camp Radcliff. The base is built around helipads (03:15), encircled by a clear-cut section, and reinforced with howitzer batteries (03:27) and machine gunners (03:37). For additional security, another force is posted on top of a mountain (03:59) overlooking the base. Other fixed-wing craft operate out of An Khe (04:09). The First Cavalry patrol a large range of territory in South Vietnam (04:53) featuring highlands and mountains. The first air assaults are launched in September and October of 1965, proving the usefulness of helicopters in combat. A CH-47 Chinook (05:36) transports men and equipment. Quick-firing howitzers (05:37) and aerial rocket artillery (05:44) give the Division a significant advantage in firepower over the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). Air superiority allows U.S. forces to retrieve damaged equipment—a CH-54 Tarhe hauls a cargo plane (06:23) off for repairs. Logistics are much more efficient with airmobile operations: troops are supplied in the field and wounded are evacuated (06:49) in minimal time. The first major engagement is the Pleiku campaign in Pleiku province (07:19). The NVA prepares for a major offensive with a diversionary attack at Plei Me, leading to an ambush of South Vietnamese soldiers (08:14). The South Vietnamese fight back and are assisted by the First Cavalry at LZ Field Goal with gun batteries brought in by helicopters (09:14). General William C. Westmoreland (09:32) changes the First Cavalry’s limited role, sending the division out to find and attack NVA forces (10:05). Infantry are airdropped into a number of landing zones to search for the enemy, and on 1 November 1965, they attack an NVA outpost on Ia Tae river (10:45). Helicopter troop carriers bring in fresh troops as artillery and air force tactical strikes punish the NVA 33rd Regiment. A First Cavalry battalion flies into LZ X-Ray in Ia Drang (12:00) to engage NVA troops reinforced by NVA 66th regiment. Sky troopers continue fighting (12:43). Artillery is flown in and helicopters fire aerial rockets while the wounded and killed are evacuated (13:38). NVA troops are hit by B-52 raids (13:53) as they withdraw. X-Ray troops marched out to LZ Columbus and LZ Albany. The Albany-bound troops run into an NVA column, but the First Cavalry is victorious: NVA leaves behind almost 2,000 dead and enemy prisoners and stores of ammo and weapons (15:19). The Pleiku Campaign, also called the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, is over. Helicopters return from the Pleiku Campaign (15:57), and the Division and supporting units receive the Presidential Unit Citation (16:08). In 1966, the First Cavalry turns north to Bong Son. Air Force bombers, artillery, and gunships prep the area for infantry assault (17:19). Troops hike through difficult terrain looking for Vietcong (17:36). The First enters a cleared village (18:08) to question suspects. The First continues to clear NVA-held territory while also feeding (18:41) and providing medical attention to South Vietnamese, and accepting the surrender of NVA soldiers (19:01). Each operation has lessons: the M102 105mm howitzer (19:40) is built much lighter for more efficient transport; collapsible fuel containers replace metal containers to help with weight capacities (20:01). Fresh troops arrive (20:34) and operations. 8-inch howitzers reinforce air assaults (21:38). Armored forces join when the terrain allows (22:43). The First helps relieve besieged Marines in Khe Sanh (24:22). NVA moves troops and supplies into Laos via the Ho Chi Minh Trail, but the First Cavalry, in coordination with Paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division, attack and force the NVA to abandon the valley, leading to the capture of a storehouse of weaponry (26:51).

U.S. Small Arms Experiences and Use in the Vietnam War
TFB TV


Published on Nov 22, 2017
Our last episode with Col. Dillon, the infantry officer discusses U.S. small arms and some of their finer points of employment within the Vietnam War while on his two tours there as a battalion field grade officer. The Colt 1911? Great for shooting off locks. The M16A1? Dillon actually credits that rifle with getting through the Battle of Ia Drang due to the ability to carry more ammunition over the M14. M60s? Issues with barrel changing in the middle of a firefight due to the barrel mounted bipods. Blooper carriers/grenadiers never used their mechanical sights when employing their M79 grenade launchers.

Special Forces Sniper shows off a Minigun | Sniper Locker | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Feb 1, 2016
I miss getting behind the minigun. We used to run them on a few of our Assault Force HUMMERs, back when I was working with the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Force (ICTF). This was a joint force, consisting of trained Iraqi operators led by their US Green Beret advisors. Troops would conduct “Rolling Assaults” using about a dozen HUMMERs. These HUMMERs were open-topped with running boards, to haul about 9 assaulters each. They were armed with a .50cal BMG in the turret, and 4x M-240s mounted on swing-arms off the sides and back. Usually one HUMMER per Troop would mount an M-134 Minigun. Occasionally, if I wasn’t tied up, I would roll on these raids manning that minigun. While being a vehicle turret gunner sounds boring (and it is), it is a job that needs to be done. However, every once in a while, someone would be stupid enough to pick a fight with us, and I would get to flip up that Red Safety, hit that trigger, and let that “Breath of Allah” sing.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARINE RECON & MARINE RAIDERS
Nick Koumalatsos


Published on Nov 26, 2017
This is definitely the most requested video I have had. Rightfully so because the history of Reconnaissance and Marine Raiders are so intertwined it can leave someone filling a bit confused, I have your back. Not only does this video give you my military history, it also gives you the history of Marine Recon and Marine Raiders (MARSOC), the requirements to get into both units, and also some very sound advice from other Recon and Raider Operators. So get some popcorn, grab a notepad, and put your feet up. Enjoy!

M17 Pistol • The U.S. Army's New Modular Handgun
Gung Ho Vids


Published on Dec 9, 2017
U.S. Army Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division test fire the M17 pistol at a target range on December 5, 2017. The M17 Modular Handgun System replaces the M9 pistol, the standard Army sidearm since 1986. The M-17 is a Military version of the SIG Sauer P320 pistol. The new handgun has an external safety, self-illuminating sights for low-light conditions, an integrated rail for attaching enablers and an Army standard suppressor conversion kit to attach an acoustic/flash suppressor. There is also an M18 version which is a compact version of the M17. These Soldiers are among the first to fire the Army's new handgun. Sig Sauer beat out Glock for the $580 million contract to produce the weapons after winning the Army and Air Force modular handgun competition. Filmed at Fort Campbell on November 27 and December 5, 2017.

TFR 72: Recruiter Problems#2
Stew Smith


Published on Dec 7, 2017
Jeff and Stew discuss a situation that occurred to one of our Navy veteran emailers and his recruiter. There are programs you should know about and your recruiter should also know about. If you feel your recruiter is not up to current knowledge on such special ops entry level programs, find a new recruiter.

The only way to get to your preferred job in the military is through a recruiter. Make sure YOU do your own homework so you know what you are being told is accurate.

In the end it is up to you to know this and besides, you should know EVERYTHING there is to know about your future profession - do your homework.
