    Uniform Mod

    This would work for In game to a point but not applicable for our website Uniforms, we will not be editing our template for the website uniforms to have all the possible units out there. I can see the same being an issue for it in game as well. There are far too many unit patches out there and isn't fair to those that don't serve in a major division (IE: National Guard, State Guard or Reserve) So as cool as it would be I would have to say no. Our ingame uniforms currently have the 3rdID patch (from XML) and we currently have Squad/ Platoon patches for the other arm.

    Unites States Army NGSW upgrade for the 3rd?

    I will admit, with transitioning to using the Badger IFV (base arma 'Marshall') it would be logistically suitable to use this weapon.

    Uniform Mod

    Hello, So I got a idea to run by you all. So when i was in 173rd our uniforms relflected the unit and real life unit they were with in the actual military for example left arm we would wear the 3rd ID patch and if I was in the 82nd airborne i would have it on my right arm in game. It just a little something that we did at 173rd for military members who served. Like for example aswell I know some units in the 3rd ID had the logo on the helmet cover idk if we have anything like that but it would also be nice "De oppresso liber"
  13. Could we see a change to a MX style weapon system in game? The Army has made a purchase of some one hundred thousand new rifles. These weapons include a replacement for all 5.56 caliber rifles and machineguns. The new caliber is a 6.8 caliber bullet. There is no real equivalent in Arma 3 but there is a similar weapon. Here is a post from the wiki about them. The MX is a 6.5mm assault rifle used as a standard-issue weapon for the BLUFOR army. It is lightweight, reliable, easily serviceable and compatible with a large number of accessories. Several variants of the MX rifle exist: MX 3GL is equipped with a 3GL grenade launcher. MXM is a designated marksman rifle for engaging targets from a larger distance compared to assault rifles. MX SW is a light support weapon providing light machinegun support. And finally MXC is a carbine version with shorter barrel, better suited for close quarters combat. This post is not meant to confirm any kinds of changes. It is just a thought I have been having since the confirmed purchase from the United States Army. I encourage everyone to look into the everyday activities of the Army and post comments about a weapon change like this for real life reasons and about the group.
  14. Sgt. Nicholas Serra (right), 24th FMSU, STB, 3IDSB, accepts a certificate from Command Sgt. Maj. Gerald Capo, the senior enlisted leader of the STB during the battalion’s NCO induction ceremony, June 6 on Fort Stewart Providers hold NCO induction ceremony, remember D-Day The Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade, held a noncommissioned officers induction ceremony June 6 at Moon Theater. The tradition is used by senior NCOs to convey the sense of esteem and pride felt when a newly-promoted Soldier realizes that they are now a part of the backbone of the Army. Sgt. Maj. Jon Noyes, brigade operations sergeant major, spoke at the event retelling the story of D-Day and the Medal of Honor recipient, Technician 5th Grade John J. Pinder. “I tell it because, while the Army has changed plenty since D-Day, the basic role of NCOs has changed very little since World War II,” Noyes said. “Our charge is to provide our Soldiers with the leadership and training they deserve.” When promoted from specialist to corporal or sergeant, role changes to include more oversight of Soldiers and property. Sergeants are expected to achieve results while leading and developing Soldiers through training. Sgt. Jasmine Bullard, HHC, STB, 3IDSB, passes under an arch and sabers during the battalion’s noncommissioned officer induction ceremony, June 6 on Fort Stewart. “I’m a squad leader and I’m in charge of four Soldiers. When I was a specialist I only had one, so it’s more responsibility and thinking on my feet,” said Sgt. Nicholas Smith, squad leader with 90th Human Resources Company, STB, 3IDSB. “To me, to be an NCO is to take care of your Soldiers and place their needs above your own.” As a leader you must believe in the Army values and take pride in the uniform you wear each day and remember your basic responsibilities are accomplishment of the mission, and the welfare of Soldiers and upholding the standards. “Good leaders are trusted by followers,” said Noyes. “Soldiers are watching you. If you accomplish the mission and take care of your people you will gain their trust.” Junior enlisted Soldiers also assisted with the rite of passage. They read letters asking their NCOs to mentor them to someday follow in their footsteps. “When you’re in the Army you are part of something greater than yourself and NCOs get to help people learn and grow,” said Pfc. Courtney Harris, 287th Quartermaster Company, STB, 3rd IDSB. The ceremony concluded with the inductees raising their right hand reciting The NCO in charge, pledging to fulfill their greatest obligation as a leader. Noyes finished his speech quoting Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, “The sergeant is the Army. […] Remember those who came before and strive every day to be the best leader you can possibly be.” Editors note: Co-written by 3rd IDSB Public Affairs specialist, Sgt. Laurissa Hodges and Sgt. Elizabeth White. Source
  15. Private Trainee D.Doom,

              We have met, though briefly, in the server already. Your tenacious attitude and willingness to gain access and accompany us on a small mission is much appreciated. I hope that any further issues are found and ironed out. I know you know that being a member of the United States military is a special course. This course can lead many to succeed and surpass where others fear to even try. Here in this 3rd infantry group we practice to keep the same levels of difficulties that real world operations have. I am honored you would attend our training all weekends and especially this weekend again.

    Honestly,

    Sergeant J.Feagin

    Ranger School Graduation 09JUN19

    Ranger School teaches members leadership skills in a 12-hour high intensity course. This themed Ranger School this year; every ranger candidate and cadre will be representing Rangers as they would have appeared in the 1980s: woodland BDUs, boonie hats, old style M16s, and more.The first phase of this themed Ranger School was an introduction and explanation of the mission along with a quick training on the procedures and tactics that were expected and utilized to complete the objectives. Once the training phase was over, the mission started with setting up the camp hours after midnight and guarding the camp/going on patrols during the 9 hours night. The course ended with 2-3 hours of intensive combat shortly paused for briefings between missions.
