    The Code

    So with 60k$ total, a house and an apartment? On a side note, are colored nail polish allowed in the Marines?

    A service member couple. Wife was an E2 (PFC), husband was an E3 (LCpl). And they could afford a house and an apartment around DC area? How much does junior enlisted make, with housing and all?

    Since her Shameless days, I just wish that Emma Greenwell would close her mouth in her normal expression.

    I am a bit confused about the Gitmo episode. The court martial is called by the Convening Authority, is it not? The prosecutors are not like DAs that they can prosecute their cases independently. CMIIW. If that is the case, certainly the CO of NS Guantanamo Bay could stop the proceeding as he is the Convening Authority on that base, rather than taking the convoluted way around.

    S06.E03: He Be Tight. He Be Mean.

    Looking at the angle that his loft has towards the Statue, quick check with Google Maps actually indicates that his loft is located somewhere in New Jersey. Yeah, I know. It is like every hotel window in Paris looks directly to Eiffel Tower and in Toronto to CN Tower. Except for playoffs - which is far and away for the Knicks - it is not that difficult on StubHub. For pretty penny, of course. On a separate note, I check Raoul's French restaurant in New York. It is not that expensive. $52 for steak and $44 for halibut + lobster. So why Ray gave Lena that stack of money? Of course, knowing American money, those bills could be just $10s.

    Not exactly EoE but Ozzy did this in South Pacific. He wanted to be voted out to Redemption Island. Upon his return however, Cochran turned on his alliance and eventually voted Ozzy out.

    The victim was a Captain in the Afghan National Army. So who cares about what happens to his family and his legacy, right? Sarcastic, of course. The judge was a Lieutenant Colonel, not a General Officer. But your point stands. Why conduct a court martial in an operational zone like that? Do the members of the panel not have anything to do while downrange?

    New episodes of The Code are pulled off schedule and replaced by reruns of Magnum P.I. *Taps*

    I understand that adage, but it seems like a very inefficient way to keep ferrying JAGC officers from CONUS downrange. And JAGC doing the investigation seems out of place. Why bother with MP and NCIS if they have Abe and Harper, right? So they revealed that Capt Dyer's unit was part of Marine Raider Regiment. So they are not regular Marine grunts, they are special operator. Which means the firefight scene more implausible. There they were, in a firefight. The company CO was KIA and the first thing the first shirt did was to ask a JAGC officer for order? He knew exactly that the most combat training 1stLt Li had was SOI and he had a platoon of well-trained Raiders. The sensible thing to do is for him to take charge and protect the Lieutenant. This is the second episode that they deal with a MARSOC unit. Genuine question, I thought SOCOM was somewhat independent to the services? I thought SOCOM had its own counsel?

    The Hot Zone

    Not to mention that she never wears her headgear, even when she is outdoor and off the base. Monday was fun, watching this show led-in by Chernobyl. Two shows with gory deaths, what not to like?

    You mean Tyler Grey (SO1 Trent Sawyer)? He was Army Ranger, no?

    I shook my head when Davis picked up Quinn and while hugging her Quinn said something like, "Let us find a bedroom ASAP." It is something to fraternize when they both were POs, while it might be hard to be objective with one's partner in the same unit. But once Davis received her commission, it was a different story. Their action was a punishable offense under UCMJ.

    Just to correct you a little bit. The sailor suit, as the name implies, is only worn by the junior enlisted personnel in the Navy. Private First Class is an Army and Marine Corps rank, thus those with that rank wear either Army or Marines uniform. Army and Marines uniforms do not differ significantly between junior and senior ranks. Midshipmen are student officers in the Department of Navy. Those are students in the US Naval Academy or at the Naval ROTC. IIRC, unlike what is depicted in this show, OCS candidates are not midshipmen. As they are student officers, midshipmen wear officer-style service dress uniforms.

    1. And commissioned officers, of course. In that scene LCDR Blackburn and CPT Harrington. 2. I was a bit surprised that it was prepared Budweiser that they pinned on the casket. I always thought that the operators took the insignia from their breast then put it on the casket. Speaking of which, who was the additional Senior Chief in that detail? He was apparently close to the team as he sat next to Hays in the bar.

    I can not help but wonder though. If CAS was available from the beginning, why Jason only requested one once they were pinned down and in critical situation? Why not asked for one once they knew tangos in multiple vehicles were closing in? And then Trent controlled the air attack. I would think that they had TACP there considering the A-10 was not a SOCOM asset. Speaking of SOCOM asset, Mali was a long, long way from Guam. I found it hard to swallow that there were no SOCOM assets available in the whole AFRICOM, EUCOM and CENTCOM AOs. Even Virginia Beach or Fort Bragg were closer. CMIIW but operators needed certain amount of rest after travelling across time zones.
