    The Roland Special. Pretty popular config.

    What’s soupy about his uniform besides the belt?

    Soldiers are not allowed to take any personal weapons into a combat zone. Generals don't have to follow the rules.

    Normal soldiers may not, people who go places that don't exist have much more leeway.

    The only rule for generals is “do what I order, not what I do”. The lower ranks get NJP for breaking the regs and rules.

    Given that even a General can only use "Nato Approved" ammunition, no hollow points, no critical defense, etc... Which would you carry in a combat zone? The Glock 17 with extended magazine, or the 1911?

    Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Walmart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time.

    Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late.

    But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies.

    One day the boss called him into the office for a talk.

    "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being late so often is quite bothersome."

    "Yes, I know boss, and I am sorry and am working on it."

    "Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear.”

    “Yes sir, I understand your concern and I will try harder.“

    Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment, “I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning late so often?"

    The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled.

    He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin, "They usually saluted and said, Good morning, General, can I get your coffee, sir?
