Reserve Marines spend two years on active duty and four years on active reserve. This consists of monthy meeting for… one weekend and two weeks of training each year.. But with Bush's war now going on you can pretty much figure all six years active whichever way you go. (MORE)

Only enlisted personnel in the United States military branches are generally bound to a specific service requirement, which is at this time eight years (at least four of active duty, and the balance of inactive reserve service). Officers in the U.S. military generally serve at their pleasure and …may resign their commissions at any time... though deployed personnel must of course wait for the end of their current tour. The exception to this rule is when specific training is tied to a service commitment. For example, an officer who received four years of tuition through a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program, will be required to 'repay' this through a specified number of years of service, typically four years, after which they would serve until they resign. Another excellent example is for other expensive and lengthy training, such as pilot training. Another exception is that sometimes accepting a promotion (notably to O-4/Major) may require a service commitment. It is for this reason that there are occasional situations where an officer may request being passed over for promotion, or refuse one awarded. These regulations change with time, and one's officer recruiter should be consulted for specific current regulations. (MORE)

If you had a simple circuit of one hot wire (10 ohms), a load (100 ohms), and a neutral wire (10 ohms) at 120 volts; total resistance would be 120 ohms, divide 120 volts by 120 ohms = 1 amp (electrons), current stays the same in a series circuit, so 1 amp would flow through each part of the …circuit, 1 amp times 10 ohms equals 10 volts dropped on each wire, 120 - (10 + 10) = 100 volts left for the load, 1 amp through the 100 ohm load proves this (MORE)

Semper Fi, or "Semper Fidelis", is the the Marine Corps motto. Semper Fidelis is the Latin term for "Always Faithful.
Very little. It was early in the war, production had not reached full capacity, and the Marines were at the end of the line for new equipment. They went ashore armed with with the WWI infantry arsenal - the 1903 Springfield bolt action rifle, for example. They also had an abomination called the Reis…ing Automatic Rifle, not heard of after the Guadalcanal Campaign, because it was a POS. The Marines were largely able to rearm themselves with M-1s and BARs by "liberating" weapons from the National Guard of the Army's 41st Infantry Division, which arrived in October. At the initial landings, the ships were not loaded properly, so vital equipment was buried deep in the holds. And the navy pulled out its ships, late in the day. The Navy was afraid to keep its ships in the area for fear of Japanese attacks. They'd come back every day, unload a little bit, then scuttle away. So the Marines went in without their artillery or ammunition, and without rations. The Marines lived on captured Japanese rations, rice and fish heads, for weeks. When they did get American rations, they were left over from WWI. Had to eat all that up before you could deserve any cans of survival food of recent vintage. (MORE)

The manufacturer should be able to provide both a MSDS as well as formulation recommendations. (MORE)
