Now....., how often do you eat biscuits? Oh, every day, in the morning with my tea. Now, sir, just a question about fruit and vegetables. Do you eat fruit every day? No, I don’t, in fact. I never eat fruit really but I do eat a lot of vegetables. I really like ..... O.K. Just two more questions. Do you eat meat every day? Oh no, not every day. My wife does a roast on Sundays and in the week, probably twice in a week we have a bit of mince or maybe pork chop ..... never chicken. We don’t like chicken. Last question, sir, fish. Do you eat fish once a week, twice a week or more...? Fish .... oooh, err. We never eat fresh fish, sometimes a bit of frozen. My wife doesn’t like the smell. Well, thank you, sir. That’s O.K. Bye then.

I love dangerous sports you know......hang gliding........ Oh, my God! No! I don’t like flying by plane let alone hang gliding. I like staying at home and watching TV. I always watch the news and I never miss a good horror film. I hate TV news and horror films. What I like is going out - you know, to the gym or swimming. Oh, I like the gym too but I can’t swim. Do you know what I really like? No, what? Gardening. Oh, no! I never do the gardening. My wife does it all.

Lewis, nice to see you again. You too, Anne. Why are you here? I’m here for Thanksgiving. You know my grandmother’s American. Ah, that’s right. You don’t have Thanksgiving, do you? No, we don’t, but we have Guy Fawke’s day. Really, what’s that? It’s the day when we have a fire and a barbecue in the garden and fireworks. Really! We have a lot of different holidays, don’t we? Yeah, we don’t celebrate the 4th of July - in fact, it’s a sad day for Britain! (laugh, laugh) Ah, come on - you’re joking! I know my wife tells me you don’t have Halloween. That’s right. It’s not really very popular in England but today some people celebrate that too. But we don’t have pumpkins or “trick or treat” like you do. Anyway, my favourite holiday is one we both have..... What’s that? Christmas! You’re right! It’s mine too!

Well, I’m the Area Coordinator for Camp Darby. Let’s say I’m the Italian Senior Representative at Camp Darby. I coordinate in conjunction with USASETAF G3, training, local training activities (including airborne) for SETAF units at Camp Darby. It’s my job to work with local Army Commands and SETAF Carabinieri on all security matters, including emergency plans for USASETAF installations and sites in the Livorno area. I’m also responsible for coordination and supervision of all activities conducted by Italian military personnel assigned to Camp Darby. Of course, I have a good working knowledge of English and previous NATO staff experience. Yes, I like my job, it’s challenging and rewarding and, yes, I can say I don’t regret joining the Army. Now listen to Lt. Col. Podda talking about his hobbies. Well, I really don’t have much free time, you know. I’m married and I’ve got two kids. I suppose my real hobby is collecting war medals. I have medals from the Boer War, the First and Second World Wars and I also have a medal that goes back to the Crimean War. Of course I don’t have any medals from the Falklands conflict or the Gulf War. Another hobby I have .......I suppose it’s connected to the first, is history and anything to do with strategy and tactics of war. My wife thinks it’s not very interesting. I think she means boring!! Anyway, apart from this, I like eating out and my wife and I try to go out for dinner, without the kids, at least once a month. We sometimes go to the Indian restaurant or the Chinese and we often meet friends at the Mexican restaurant in the centre of town. My wife loves spicy food.......and........

It was a dreadful day that I remember with great sorrow. On an ordinary spring day a crazy, demented gunman walked into Canbry primary school, and entered the gymnasium. The children were having their gym lesson. He shot 16 children, their teacher and then himself. Other staff members close by heard the screams and rounds of fire. They immediately called for help. Carl:

That’s shocking. Did it take the police long to get there?

Doug: No, they were quickly on the scene and together with the teachers, they gave first aid to the wounded children. The poor children were traumatized and in a state of shock. Ambulances then took the survivors to the local hospital. Carl:

What happened then?

Doug: Oh, then the police and teachers began the terrible task of identifying the dead and informing the families. Carl:

Oh, those poor people!

We don’t know what strange forces are at play in that area, but between 1945 and 1972 over 100 ships and planes and over 1,000 people disappeared. People, ships and planes are still disappearing and we can’t understand why. Until now, we don’t have a logical scientific explanation. In december 1945 five planes from Fort Lauderdale disappeared. At the time the pilot was in communication with the control tower. He reported his position saying he could hear strange noises and a bright light was coming close to him. Radio contact ended.

He began his political career as an army political agent in the German Workers (later National Socialist or Nazi) party in 1919. He became head of its propaganda arm in 1920. He was soon made president of the party and began his creation of a mass movement and his climb to power. In his work “Mein Kampf”, written in prison, he condemned democratic government and expressed his hatred and fear of Jews. Throughout the 20’s he continued to gain strength and the support of people. He was both Chancellor and President in the mid-thirties when he turned his attention to foreign policy and W.W. II. Part of his “New Order” was the complete extermination of the Jews. In 1945 faced with imminent defeat, he committed suicide. 247

No, well, I suppose he wasn’t. He was, of course, - you know, a perfectionist. He was the most cautious, bravest and most thorough strategist I ever knew. He never left anything to chance.

Yes, of course, in fact, he was perhaps the most outstanding allied commander of World War II, wasn’t he?

Yes, he did, and with great courage too. People say he was very popular with the troops, is that right?

Oh yes, indeed it is. He always insisted on complete readiness of men and material before he attempted any strike. He thought the safety of his troops was more important than military success, and , of course, he was often in conflict with other commanders over this.

Are you thinking of anyone in particular?

Gen

Oh yes, well Eisenhower. You know they were very different. Eisenhower, you know, who made quicker decisions, he was not as popular with his men as Monty. You know Monty really believed in the importance of morale in the troops.

I'd like to begin by saying that in the eighties, I was in favour of the policy of recruiting women for duty at sea. I believed that there was a place for women in the disciplined environment of a warship. However, after fifteen years experience, I now realise I was wrong. My experience showed me that men and women together in confined spaces for long periods of time led to sexual tensions. We can't ignore the crucial, emotional factor. The intensity of emotion that develops between people in these situations, often results in conflict. I believe that this, undermines the mission. I must add that I am convinced that women are competent to do the job and are professional, but that in the end it's a question of emotion - human emotions. In conclusion, I must say I am completely against the proposal to allow women on submarines.

Ex. 28

I'd like to begin by saying that I disagree totally with Captain Sharp. In my opinion, men and women work together well, on and off warships! It's all a question of common sense. I must add that this opinion was shared by most of the male officers I worked with. I believe that women have much experience to offer and that men and women work together well, because they complement each other. In conclusion, I see a future where both sexes will work together competently and efficiently in pursuit of the common goal - the successful outcome of the mission.

I didn't get on well with my stepfather, so I always looked forward to the weekends. At that time my father lived in the country and we used to go fishing down by the river and sometimes we went horse riding on Sunday afternoons. I didn't use to play with girls, I spent my time with my brothers. We spent all the long holidays in the country, and this was when I was happiest.

Vietcong soldiers hiding in the jungle at the time were contaminated with the toxic agent. Evidence shows that these soldiers, later fathered a disproportionately high number of children with mental and physical disabilities.

Once a relationship between the military and the civilian group is established, it must be maintained. Individual dignity and individual human rights must be respected within the limitations of the law and the Rules of Engagement. It is important to maintain open and constant communication. The direction of CIMIC activity is the responsibility of the commander. Concentration of assets available for CIMIC operations will normally be limited and they must be used appropriately. The military mission takes priority in all circumstances.

Ex. 62 Commander’s Briefing: At ease, men. This morning I've called a briefing to inform you of a special mission. You must carry out this mission before the snow falls because the terrain is very rough. There are only about two months until winter arrives. Then you'll have to deal with poor road conditions which will make it quite difficult to move your men and equipment into the area. Minefields have been mapped and marked but you must keep out of unchecked territory. Your task is to bring supplies and fuel to units already in the area and to deal with all of their logistical needs.

Journalist:

Well, Captain Ricci, can you tell us something about your involvement in the East Timor mission?

Capt. Ricci:

First of all, it was a new experience for me in terms of climate. I was in Bosnia in ’92 and that was completely different. Our biggest problems in Bosnia were the mines and the terrible road conditions in winter, but East Timor was totally different.

Journalist:

You mentioned the climate.

Capt. Ricci:

Yes, it was extremely hot and humid. The heat was oppressive. We had to drink water continuously to avoid dehydration. It was hard for our soldiers to climatize.

Journalist:

Was it difficult to keep the situation under control?

Capt. Ricci:

Well, I witnessed examples of brutality and violence that I had not seen in Bosnia. But then, for example, the discovery of mass graves was something that we had already seen in Bosnia. These are things it is difficult to forget.

Journalist:

What about the local people?

Capt. Ricci:

They were obviously relieved to see us but the desperation and fear in their faces was clear. What I’ll probably remember most is the kindness of the old people and the sadness of the children.

Journalist:

Thank you Captain Ricci for sharing your experience with us.

Capt. Ricci:

You’re welcome.
