While the Army discontinued traditional bayonet training in 2010,Mb< the USMC still trains Marines with bayonets and issues them as standard equipment. The Army has also begun training soldiers in a different style of bayonet use--not affixed to the end of a rifle but as a secondary melee weapon. Instead, soldiers learn in combatives training how to use a knife or bayonet if someone grabs their primary weapon.Some users on Twitter have claimed that, by virtue of the USMC still using bayonets, there actually are more bayonets in use than 1916, when the army had between 100,000 and 140,000 enlisted members. As of 2010, the Corps boasted 203,000 active duty members and 40,000 reserve marines.http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/10/22/During-Debate-...----You can't even trust a Marxist socialist progressive to get even the 'simple facts' straight.There are MORE bayonets out there today in the military than in 1916!Face it - he hates the military.
