CONCERNING THE PATROL BOAT CAPTURE:Why were they carrying US passports on an active patrol??? Something smells rotten as many suspect.
Steve, I saw something on FOX News Friday evening that caught my eye while
watching video footage from the Iranians displaying the "captured" US navy
sailors. In the video clip, they showed the Iranians displaying US
passports, allegedly belonging to some of the sailors.
I'm former US army cavalry trooper of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment,
3rd Squadron, West Germany, mid-late '70's. We patrolled the Czech border
trace with W. Germany. No GPS back then, just charts. When out on patrol,
inside the 1K zone, 50 meter zone, we were forbidden to carry any documents
other than a US armed forces identification card. If it looked as though
any of us were really going to be "captured" by the PS guards for
accidentally straying inside Czech, we were to ASAP change the frequencies
on the radios to random and BURN the CEOI book (communications electronics
operating instructions...the radio frequencies, call sign and
authentication tables booklet). Nothing in your wallet but an US armed
forces identification card was allowed.
Why were they carrying US passports on an active patrol??? Something smells
rotten as many suspect.
Thank you Steve for being our watchmen of the Lord to us all...all over
