It looks like some sort of addendum to their standard procedure. I dunno.

@TorturedZen Still ascertaining what’s what, Ready groups aside, it would appear that in a very short time we will know.

No idea. Obviously “make ready” but that could be anything from a duty reminder, to an adjustment of responsibility, to Holy Fuck! get new laces in those boots. With the vitriol currently being exchanged between those left and those right, and a full year to go prior to the next election, it’s probably a damn good idea to have up to date. It could be a planned activity such as firearm confiscation. It could be per foreign rumblings. It could be simply that an armada of Aliens from planet Zuktron are coming to eat you. (they won’t mess with Ogres). It may be that with everybody busy impeaching everybody else, the military is worried about the gooberment self destructing. Highly probable outcome at this point.

My guess is it’s to update the outdated MARADMINS of 2014.
