USPHS Commissioned Corps misinformation[edit]

May sure all corresponding pages also reflect the correct information and please cite references to avoid incorrect changes in the future. Neovu79 (talk) 00:11, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Assistant Secretary for Health[edit]

Thanks for your work on United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Do you happen to know if Eve Slater was commissioned into the PHSCC during her tenure as Assistant Secretary for Health (2002-2003)? I know she wasn't before and expressed interest during the confirmation process, but I can't tell what actually happened. (I'm almost positive Philip Lee was not, but then again, I was also positive James Mason wasn't and I was wrong about that.) - Morinao (talk) 00:12, 12 December 2007 (UTC)


I have noticed that you often edit without an edit summary. Please do your best to always fill in the summary field. This is considered an important guideline in Wikipedia. Even a short summary is better than no summary. An edit summary is even more important if you delete any text; otherwise, people may think you're being sneaky. Also, mentioning one change but not another one can be misleading to someone who finds the other one more important; add "and misc." to cover the other change(s).

30th HBCT move[edit]

Why did you move the 30th HBCT page to the 30th Armored Brigade Combat Team? It is not an armored brigade, it is a heavy brigade combat team. I should know, because I am in the 30th HBCT. The US Army doesn't even have armored brigades anymore. The three types of brigades are Heavy, Infantry, and Stryker. (See the Brigade Combat Team (United States) wiki page for further reference.)

If you would be so kind as to revert the page back to its old title, it would be greatly appreciated. PistolPete037 (talk) 00:28, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

26th IBCT[edit]

I see you are already making changes reference the 26th MEB MA Army National Guard, but you are jumping the gun a bit. The unit is still called the 26th IBCT, it doesn't officially become the 26th MEB until October 1 2008 (new fiscal year). Then all the combat units that currently fall under it will be reattached to different brigades ... for instance the 101st FA will fall under the 86th IBCT VT ARNG and the 86th FA Bn will be deactivated.

Army National Guard[edit]

Hi, Im currently working to create OrBat graphics for all the Army National Guard divisions (i.e. 34th Infantry Division (United States)#Current Structure or 35th Infantry Division (United States)#Current Structure, but as the National Guard is currently restructuring it is extremly difficult to find the necessary information. As of now I have done my best and created the follwoing 5 graphics:

most likely there will be some errors - if you have the time and knowledge could you please have a look and check for errors and/or omissions? Thank you very much. Also I will work on the 36th, 38th and 40th Divisions over the week and do hope that you could have a look at the Army National Guard#Divisions list and check if they listed brigades are correct. Also if you have some information regarding the units of the brigades of the aforementioned 3 divisions, this would massively help me in my endeavor. thanks, --noclador (talk) 22:29, 23 June 2008 (UTC)


July 2008[edit]

  1. Please stop moving pages without discussing it first. You are leaving a lot of messes, and many of us would like to comment on the moves you are making. Lou Sander (talk) 04:47, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. Information.svg When moving pages, as you did to United States Sixth Fleet, please remember to fix any double redirects. These can create slow, unpleasant experiences for the reader, waste server resources, and make the navigational structure of the site confusing. Thank you. --Kralizec! (talk) 17:47, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
  3. Stop moving Marine Corps article. you have not discussed theese with anyone and you are causing a mess in double redirects. Stop moving the articles--Looper5920 (talk) 18:16, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. Stop hand nuvola.svg Several people have asked you to stop unilaterally moving articles, as your bold page moves are incomplete, lack consensus, and create a lot of work for other editors. If you do not stop moving articles without discussing it first, you will be blocked from editing. --Kralizec! (talk) 18:21, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Sustainment Brigade (Special Operations) (Airborne)[edit]

According to the official 2009 US Special Operations Command Factbook the Special Operations Support Command does not exist in the U.S. Army Special Operations Command anymore and in its place the Sustainment Brigade (Special Operations) (Airborne) was activated on December 2, 2005 (with the same units attached). Therefore it is clear that User:Outdawg wrongly moved the page last August. I requested that the name be corrected and the article moved to Sustainment Brigade (Special Operations) (Airborne). However this supposedly runs afoul of the Wikipedia:naming conventions... which seems rather strange to me (how can the correct name as given by the US Special Operations Command be not acceptable???). Anyway: if you wish to participate in the discussion, you can find it here: Talk:Special Operations Support Command. --noclador (talk) 02:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

172nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team (United States)[edit]

Hello. You have moved this page several times and it has been repeatedly reverted by other users. Rather than prepetuating an edit war, I've opened a discussion on the article's talk page to discuss the move. Please present your case for moving it there so that a final decision can be made. Thanks! -Ed!(talk) 04:15, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
