I couldn't find out why...but I did find:
(not my words, therefore, don't hit me up on the grammar)

Until mids of the 1960s, the most of the military U.S. vehicles had large white stars.(hood, doors or side) After it the large white stars were replaced by smaller ones at special vehicle places only ( bumpers and fenders). After it they got replaced again by small black stars. (Vietnam era)

Maybe your 1SG should have challenged you to find the "Shift" key.

WOW..He asked a question and your shooting him down. Looks like someone needs a time out. This is a forum is here to help people out, not for you to make a smart ass remark just cause you want to make yourself feel better.

I don't need a time-out, and I don't feel the need to make myself feel better. I'm just sick of the lack of basic English skills that has been exhibited on this forum recently.

Last time I checked, this was not an "English Grammar" or "Computer Skills" forum. Furthermore, "locating the "Shift" key" on the keyboard, does NOT require "basic English skills"
Nobody's grammar and spelling here is perfect. IntelSergeant: The worst thing to do is to call someone out when you yourself are making a mistake as well. I guess I'll challenge you to figure out what the mistake was.

tatiana411118,

What I meant was that a good link. It "spoonfed" ezactly what the guy who made the tread was tasked to do from 1SG. I.E. Accurate information.

Those sites exist (essaypaperduelikeRIGHTnow.com), b/c they saved my butt before long long time ago in HS or early college. lol

I'm quite aware that people make mistakes--it happens. I've never called anyone out because of a misspelled word or a missing period. However, to present a question in a manner reminiscent of a text message is, quite frankly, disheartening. If people want soldiers to break out of the "uneducated" stereotype, then an effort needs to be made to present ideas in a manner consistent with the language we use.

Wolve, are you referring to a grammatical and/or syntax error? If so, what is it?

If you're referring to the concept that I came down too hard on the OP, that's your opinion, and that's fine. I have a different opinion, maybe due to the fact that at least one death of which I am aware would have been prevented had someone actually written information properly. I don't know, maybe I am too touchy on it.
That's just my signature--while true in regards this thread, it's a reference to what our job entails. I was just thinking, though, that I've had it for a while and am due for a change.

I do enough of it on duty to try to avoid making it a habit outside of it, but it does happen.
