Gabeisinthearmy Large is not the word that describes this RuskSack. I can actually put my large ALICE pack with frame inside this one and still have room to pack more stuff.

At the time of the Armistice, the following British warships were in North Russian waters: At Archangel, two monitors, four gunboats, and icebreaking vessels; At Murmansk, battleship “Glory”; At Pechanga, Russian cruiser “Askold” manned by a British crew ; with 20 small craft, which were distributed as their services were required. Early in it was decided to reinforce the Naval Expedition at Archangel in order that operations might be undertaken on the River Dwina as soon as the ice conditions permitted.
The ships allocated for this purpose were: One light cruiser, six monitors, two gunboats, four minesweepers, a sloop, an aircraft carrier, a repair ship, and a large number of auxiliaries and small craft. These vessels assembled at Murmansk at the beginning of May, and proceeded to Archangel when the ice conditions allowed, the White Sea being open to navigation by the 5th June.
The River Dwina, however, was clear of ice early in May, and this allowed the river craft, which had been iced in at Archangel during the winter, to commence operations before the White Sea was open. By the 15th May two gunboats were engaged on the River Vaga, while two monitors and two gunboats were co-operating with the military forces at Kurgomen on the River Dwina. By the middle of June the reinforcements from Great Britain had arrived at Archangel, and the Archangel River Expeditionary force supported the military forces in their operations on the Dwina during the summer.
On the 21st July news was received of a mutiny among the Russian troops co-operating with the British at Onega as the result of which a force of about Royal Marines was despatched from the United Kingdom to Murmansk to act under the military authorities, the monitor “Erebus” armed with inch guns, being sent to the White Sea at the same time. In consequence of the turn which events took, it was decided that the plans, already made for the evacuation of North Russia before the winter set in should be proceeded with at once, as soon as the necessary transport could be sent out.
To facilitate the evacuation, a heavy blow was to be delivered against the Bolsheviks, thus enabling the North Russians to occupy our positions as we withdrew.

Recognize the invisible wounds. Not every soldier comes home with post-traumatic stress. However, for those who do, there is nothing wrong with that. Just keep in mind that the chances of him wanting to open up and talk about it — let alone seek help — are slim to none, at least at first.

Dating an Army Soldier Stories (Part Two)
Shutterstock Recently, I read a really interesting piece by Raul Felix about the Generation Y Division that inevitably exists , based on those who entered the military versus those who went to college. It further resonated with me because although I first went to college, I also worked in contingency operations in Bagram, Afghanistan from Yes, I was objectified. Yes, I received plenty of attention.
Yes, I knew that I could pretty easily sleep with anyone that I wanted if I really tried. And yes, I still chose to date a man-in-uniform despite the crude, ugly truths that Raul described.

Curious as to what I was in for, and wanting some solid guidance, I went looking for advice on how to be a good Army girlfriend. Not sure how wise that was. What follows is some humble advice on how to cope with being the significant other of soldier. Dating a soldier is a commitment, and not one to be taken lightly. Read those web pages and top ten lists. Then do some soul-searching. As soon as my guy used the g-word, I hit the keyboard and called my sister-in-law retired Army wife extraordinaire.
Both gave me a wealth of knowledge I otherwise would not have had. Get used to being alone. Soldiers work long hours that they have absolutely no control over. They work weekends with little or no notice.
