FBI suspects there are gangs in the Army

I've wondered how long it would take for the FBI to get involved with this. I would be willing to bet that every gang is represented in the military. But don't be alarmed.

According to the above report, there is gang graffiti in dozens of latrines in Iraq. So, it will be interesting to see how this turns out.

How have you been? Well, I hope. Have a great day.

it may seem paranoiac, but I think that is better to prevent than regret later, and it is the best action the FBI can do. And what if they find that some army members consume Sildenafil ?
