    Well it depends :). We are looking to target 49,000 Army HMMWV replacements over 20 years. Marines will get around 5500 initially. Other Services are possible too.

    A little bit of everything.
    When I wasn’t on deployment it was the same thing. Just nothing that cool. Guard duty and access control points. Constant training with jumps, airfield seizure, and MOUT training.

    That’s pretty cool. I wonder if the current HMMWV fleet will last 20 more years? They’re all about ready for the boneyard.

    I was looking at that beautiful catfish too. It would fry up awful nice. Lol. My biggest is a 56lb. Flathead. There ain’t nothing like pulling a big old hoglipped cat out of the water.

    My favorite is stealhead fishing. Biggest fish I’ve caught was a sturgeon those are prehistoric looking monsters. I’ve never caught a giant catfish, ugly things. Haha

    I’ve caught and ate my share of catfish but not the giant ones. They are tasty fried up. Flour lots of salt and pepper and butter in a fry pan yum yum. They have all been the smaller ones out of some of the lakes I’ve fished.

    If the Army decides to reset the HMMWV fleet to augment the JLTVs then they will last some more years. Our Program Office stands ready to support.

    haha, i appreciate it, but i enjoy training dogs, and i enjoy watching folks benefit from them. it really makes ya think when you turn a trained dog over to a retired navy seal and wattch em smile, or turn a trained dog over to a 9yo wheelchair bound boy suffering from ALS and may never see twenty.
