GAS-15 Gary Stading (CA, KIA 25 April 68) on the beach at Chu Lai… Note the Combat Infantry Badge (CIB), as well as the ‘California’ and single stripe on the cap. 

Note from Doc Norman: I was present when this photo was shot. It was taken by the Battalion mail clerk. Can’t remember his name, but he was an oriental guy, heavy into photography… It was colorized by somebody cause the clerk only shot B & W. He [the mail clerk] wanted to be a news photographer when he got back to the world and all they do is B & W. … Doc

Stading was in Company A, 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment of the 198th Light Infantry Brigade.

NEW RULE RUMOURS: YUKO DISAPPEARS, 4 WAZARI FOR THE VICTORY

At the Grand Slam in Tokyo the new rules were discussed in the IJF Executive Committee at 5 December. The official version will be unveiled by the end of December by the IJF. The unofficial rumours are widely spread today via French website All Judo.

According to the article the yuko will disappear

> What used to be yuko, will now be awarded as waza-ari to make the understanding of the game easier for a wider audience.

> Two wazari was enough for the victory until this year, however with the merge of the yuko and waza-ari, the victory will be awarded after four wazari scores.

> 10 seconds of immobilization will count as wazari

> You can not win bouts by shidos, which will only serve to tie a showdown in the event of a tie. There must be an equal situation in waza-ari scores when a shido can be decisive. Unless three shidos are given out.

> Instead of four shido, the plan is to give hansokumake after three shido.

> For the first leg-grab, a shido warning will be given, for the second time in a match, direct Hansokumake.

Other sources added the adjustment of the duartion of the contest which will go down from five to four minutes for men.

Obviously all official rules will be announced soon and will be activated/tested at the first Continental Open of the year in Tunis at 14-15 January.

At the IJF Coach and Referee Seminar in Baku all rules will be practiced by coaches and referee from 5-8 January. Also IJF President Marius Vizer will be available for a twitter chat.

When Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited Abu Dhabi in 2016, she was the first member of the British royal family to be protected by an all-women security team. The women wore flowing, black hijabs, are all members of the UAE’s presidential guard, are highly skilled in martial arts and combat, and each one is hiding unidentified weapons on her person.

A fine example of how choreographed longsword combat with historical techniques can be entertaining while still remaining grounded in reality.

OK BUT

Pyrrha being really bad at throwing non-metal things. Like she turn around and throw a wrench into a basket on a moving target. She can flip a ring with two fingers while blindfolded onto the bottle tops to win the grand prize at the fair. She throw a dart under one arm and make a perfectly good bullseye six times in a row. Team JNPR has a vine account dedicated for this reason only.
But she cannot coordinate non-metal things. It’s like a bad infomercial. She’ll toss the pancake mix to Ren and it’ll explode all over him. She’ll pass Nora her scroll charger and it’ll land five feet away from her. She’ll toss Jaune a snack after training and it’ll land on the roof. Team JNPR has a vine account dedicated for this reason only also.

Well, I don’t care if it’s God’s own anti-son-of-a-bitch machine, or a giant hula hoop, we’re not gonna let ‘em have it! What we will let 'em have is a belly full of lead, and a pool of their own blood to drown in!

Happy 15th Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved!
