U.S. division deployment
After researching the Web sites of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps combat divisions, including National Guard divisions, I have updated and revamped the table that shows their current deployment, which can be found on the War page. The information on it is still tentative, pending further research. One useful feature of that table is that it includes links to each division's official Web site, though some are not currently available. Some of those Web sites are of professional quality, and others are embarrassingly amateurish. I used to count on a similar but much more detailed page called "Where Are the Divisions?" at StrategyPage.com, but it has not been updated in nearly one year.
I asked a friend of mine who used to serve in the
Army [Marine Corps!], Chris Green, how it is that wheeled combat vehicles such as the new Stryker can withstand having their tires blown out by rifle bullets. He said the tires are built integrally onto the wheel rims, presumably with a stiff inner frame. He also sent me this interesting link: www.strykernews.com.
