Military Vehicles [United States]: AM General M998 HMMWV “Humvee” (US Army)

Posted on June 9th, 2010 by admin  |  7 Comments »

Language of Video Presentation: English. The M998 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee) is an early Humvee vehicle model created by AM General. Developments started in the 1970s when the United States Army concluded that the militarized civilian trucks in use no longer satisfied their requirements. Among the contenders were Lamborghini which in 1977 developed the Cheetah model in an attempt to meet the Army contract specifications. In 1979, the Army drafted final specifications for a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, or HMMWV and by July of that year, AM General (a subsidiary of American Motors Corporation) began preliminary design work. In less than a year later, the first prototype, the M998, was in testing. In June 1981, the Army awarded AM General a contract for development of several more prototype vehicles to be delivered to the US government for another series of tests, and the company was later awarded the initial production contract for 55000 HMMWVs to be delivered in 1985. HMMWVs first saw combat in Operation Just Cause, the US invasion of Panama in 1989. Since then, the HMMWV has become the vehicular backbone of US forces around the world. For example, over 10000 were deployed by coalition forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom, the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The basic HMMWV has no armour or protection against nuclear, biological, and chemical threats; it was never designed to offer protection against intense small arms fire, much

      To former and current military personnel: Can NCOs send a person down range despite doctors' orders?

      Posted on October 31st, 2010 by admin  |  11 Comments »

      My husband was diagnosed with epilepsy last year, about a month before his unit was sent down range. Yesterday he found out (for the dozenth time) that he’s supposed to be deploying soon. They gave him an exact date this time.
      There is a neurologist he sees, and the division surgeon who both have said, and put in writing, that he is NOT to be deployed, unless it’s as a noncombatant, and voluntary on his part. After all, he can’t hold or fire a military weapon, or drive a military vehicle, or even drive his POV until at least October.
      He did not volunteer. I’m trying to reach the division surgeon and the neurologist to find out if his profile has changed, and if so, why? He still has the condition, even though it’s being controlled by meds.
      Who else can I go to? I’m worried about my husband’s health. If he has another seizure, he’s getting med-boarded, and that’s the last thing we need or want.
      Thanks in advance for your help!
      Thanks everyone! His nondeployable status is not permanent. He’s currently on a "trial of duty"…basically to make sure that his medication works. There is one update: His neurologist, who is usually booked solid for at least six weeks, made time to set my husband a special appointment to update his profile. He (the neurologist) is pretty angry about the whole thing, because my husband’s commanders have already tried this a dozen times. I have some words for them, but I don’t want my hubby to lose rank over ‘em, LOL.
