You know in all this...No one asked us what unit used that offensive slide. We’lI get to that later. We own the caption. Totally. We expected enemies to come out, what I didn’t expect is all those we worked in collaboration, show their colors that “WTFM is going down.” 1/
“You love to see it.” Then I dug deeper in some threads, “They should play with UXO..” Wow. Gotcha. Never wished anyone to play with anything that would do them harm, but hey thanks! 2/
Our inbox? Commanders, Soldiers, and PAOs; telling us we should die, we are pathetic, and numerous other degrading insults. Being told that we have no expertise, just some person BSing, and scaring units...yada..yada..3/
Oh really? Would you like to see how many of your peers hit up @TheWTFNation for updates to policy, promotions, and input to policy makers? PAOs dragging us publicly, after recent zoom meetings, speaking to units, and LPDs then “hey we should meet, hang out.." 4/
“ friends and family..” Really? You doing that roof raise and jumping on threads. I see ya. That an official statement by the way? Even had one engage one of my former troops on the collective statement we tweeted out.

We just came to terms that we would have a mutual respect to not do that. Hell we have a deconfliction zone, because olive branches were extended. Are we media? Not media? 6/
Can you call up any media organization that has a scoop and tell them to stop, correct or retract on a whim? While your command can fix the issue to NOT have a story published?

Three. Three reached out to me about the land nav post. 7/
Great talks and I appreciate the heads up. Actions taken and followed up. Now, about that slide..I am going to show you an enhanced portion of that slide. See that? 8/
Those that know repetitive slides from an NCOPDS could see, that is the emblem of @NCOLCoE

Doing some digging, those were from a slide deck from an NCOPDS. Then used at a unit for training. More digging and it was an NCOA product. 9/
One of our NCO institutions put this crap out to our NCO corps. We’ll let the @16thSMA put the word out to all NCOAs to check training media. fin/

Actions executed to deliberately mislead adversary decision makers as to friendly mil capabilities, intentions, and operations, thereby causing the adversary to take specific actions (or inactions) that will contribute to the accomplishment of the friendly mission. Buckle up!
The Operational Environment looked pretty bleak for the "Battled Bastards Of Bastogne" of the @101stAASLTDIV . All this talk of "Patton this..Patton that..".."Commanded massive formations.." ...or did he? We will come back to this question later in the thread. For now..2/
Allow me to introduce the secret weapon Patton had at his disposal..3/
