If you are stationed in a state that allows concealed handgun licenses...I advise you to get one and start carrying when you are off post. Ive long suspected that military personnel are especially suceptable stateside since you not mandated to be armed while out and about in the civilian world and on post as well to a lesser degree. Lately there has been an increase in attacks targeting military personnel and property.

The uniform isn't the only thing that puts you out there. Being former Military myself, if you put me in a crowd of 100 Men, 50 civilian, and 50 Military, I'm pretty sure I could pick out who's who with a fair amount of certainty, just by looks. You are a target, just like Police Officers, but not to such an extent.

The number one target has to be the recruiters...they are out and about in the civilian world more than anyone else in the military, are almost always in noticeable uniform, and often in the worst neighborhoods.....and driving government vehicles as well. And everyone knows they are not armed. The military is NOTORIOUS for not protecting its personnel stateside, military individuals need to take it upon themselves to do so...legally. When I have drill weekend, and am out and about for lets say lunch hour, my circle of NCOs includes several who are police officers already, a couple who are in the academy, and others who simply carry concearled based on CHL holders...we are constantly aware that the ACUs make us a target...a very soft target since people THINK we are not armed. The Guard however has many police officers....the regular components have VERY few personnel who are mandated to be armed while out and about.


With the recent spate of attacks toward Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel and property in the Virginia area, and with the murder of a Marine in uniform in New Orleans....military personnel.....remember, just because you are not overseas doesnt mean you are not still in a 360 degree threat environment.

I have to agree... Especially in some specific "liberal" jurisdictions, where been part of the Armed Forces is somewhat "Taboo".

Yes there are.  I'm no longer attached but have three friends that are full timers here and two of them do carry concealed and/or stored in their vehicles.  All three of these guys are former LEO's from my former agency.

BUMP. Good topic. Doesn't hurt to change your daily routes and routines off the clock as well. The buddy system still works too. As corny as it may sound.


It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared.

 Good topic. This is why I try to keep my profession under wraps when I'm not in uniform.
