The United States Army recently announced it will discontinue instruction in BAYONET FIGHTING for recruits undergoing Basic Combat Training.

Personally, I consider this to be a HUGE mistake!

The British Army still uses the bayonet, employing bayonet charges during the Falkland Islands War, and more recently, at Basra, Iraq.

During the current campaign in Afghanistan, a British soldier used a bayonet to kill two enemy attackers.

I'm grateful to the SIPSEY STREET IRREGULARS for furnishing this excellent photograph.
