    The Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) program is a U.S. Army initiative that has a lot on its plate: replace both the M4 carbine as well as the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon with a rifle and automatic rifle. Not only that, but the NGSW competition also wants to incorporate a new intermediate caliber rifle cartridge too–and Textron has some interesting ideas on how to win this big contract. How Textron Is Approaching the Competition Textron is joined by SIG Sauer and General Dynamics in NGSW program participation, and one of the three bids should be selected sometime this year. The...

    A member of the US Army was charged Sunday in the deadly mass shooting at an Illinois bowling alley — a random attack in which a 14-year-old boy was also shot in the face, according to officials. Suspect Duke Webb, 37, of Florida faces three counts of murder and three counts of first-degree attempted murder in Saturday’s shooting in Rockford, police and prosecutors said at a press conference Sunday. Webb is “a current active military member, and we are in contact with the US Army regarding his military status,” Police Chief Dan O’Shea said. “We believe this was a completely...

    Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt, spokesman for the academy at West Point, said Monday that 73 cadets were accused of cheating on the calculus exam in May after instructors noticed irregularities in answers. All but one were freshmen, or plebes, in a class of 1,200. The other was a sophomore. After an investigation by an honors committee made up of trained cadets, two cases were dropped for lack of evidence and four were dropped because the cadets resigned, Ophardt said. Of the remaining 67 cases, 55 cadets have admitted cheating and have been enrolled in a six-month rehabilitation program focused on...

    West Point will host the 121st Army-Navy game on Dec. 12 instead of it being played in Philadelphia as planned, because attendance limits in the state of Pennsylvania during the coronavirus pandemic would prevent the Brigade of Midshipmen and Corps of Cadets to attend the game, the service academies announced on Friday. It will be the first time since World War II -- when Annapolis hosted the 1942 game and West Point the 1943 game -- that the rivalry has been played at a home site. The two schools also rotated hosting the first four games from 1890 to 1893.

The Daily Caller obtained an unredacted Department of Defense document from a source with direct knowledge of an investigation into Gordon’s behavior as a lieutenant colonel from December 2011, as well as a redacted Department of Defense document (described as “interim findings”) that shows Gordon...
