Military news…

It’s a rare treat when a movie or TV show actually gets a military uniform right, and it’s even rarer when that uniform that hasn’t even been adopted yet. But somehow, the animated comedy series “South Park” pulled it off for Space Force.

In a recent viral video, a senior airman in the Air Force asks viewers to help find jobs for service members leaving the military because they refuse to take the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine. Her video resonated with thousands of viewers, but the number of service members leaving the military due to declining the vaccine, and for which reason, is still unknown.

Top U.S. military leaders have finally acknowledged that they knew President Biden’s decision to leave Afghanistan would seal the country’s fate. The acknowledgement marks a sharp turn from the earlier narrative, where Biden and other officials said it was unlikely the Taliban would win the entire country.

Military news…

A VA employee is under investigation for allegedly sharing a patient’s medical information on Twitter in a (poor) attempt at a joke about how penis surgery for the patient is a waste of taxpayer money. The tweet was not only a HIPAA violation, but it was also a callous barb against emotional and physical injuries that thousands of veterans, old and young, suffer from.

The baby daughter of one of the 13 American service members killed in a suicide bombing last month in Afghanistan was born on Sept. 13 and given a warm welcome from her Marine Corps family and beyond. Levi Rylee Rose McCollum, daughter of Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum and his wife Jiennah, “came roaring into this world and graced us all with her presence,”

The Army finally revealed why a soldier is being court-martialed for a mysterious firefight that took place in Syria last year. Though the details of the firefight itself are still murky, Sgt. 1st Class Robert Nicoson allegedly disobeyed orders and recklessly led his men into a gunfight with Syrian government forces, then attempted to cover up the evidence.

900 U.S. troops are still over there and nobody knows why. U.S. troops first went there to help destroy the Islamic State group’s former caliphate, but now they are stuck in between their Kurdish allies, Turkish forces who want to destroy those Kurdish allies, and the remnants of ISIS.

Remember the F-117 Nighthawk, the arrow-shaped stealth jet that kicked serious butt in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom? It’s back. Though the attack plane officially retired in 2008, the Air Force has low-key brought it back over the past few years for training missions with fighter crews, and the service publicly confirmed a recent Nighthawk training mission on Thursday.
