COMBAT ARMS SURVEY

This test was given to young enlisted combat Marines stationed at Twenty Nine Palms, California. It was called "Combat Arms Survey"

Please read all of the questions, but pay attention to questions 35, 39, 40, 42, 44, 45 and 46.



A test for the Military:

In March of 1995 a "Thesis on Peacekeeping and U.N. Operational Control: A Study of Their Effect On Unit Cohesion" by Ernest G. Cunningham, Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy was distributed to the following members of Congress: Senators Nickles, Santorum, Phil Gramm, Helms, Mack, Hatch and Representatives Dornan, Armey, Combest, Cunningham, Canady, and Gingrich.

This thesis on unit cohesion, under United Nations operational control, asked forty-six (46) questions of young enlisted combat Marines stationed at Twenty Nine Palms, California. It was called "Combat Arms Survey"

Please remember; this thesis was distributed to Republican leaders and again you and I have heard nothing from them.

End Note:

Our civilian readers may be wondering why the Combat Arms Survey was circulated so heavily within the Department of the Navy. The reason is simple; the Navy is not subject to USC Title 10 Posse Comitatus prohibitions against using federal military forces for domestic law enforcement. This includes the US Marine Corps.
