We even found a giant 20'x20' Rakasan symbol on top of the roof out or building... I mean they had enough time to site around and make this; out of metal no less. Yet they couldn't stop their own guys from dying... Just dumbfounds me, to say the lease.
did you ever think that the Rakasan symbol was erected to honor their fallen brothers? Men died doing the job we were sent to do, thats just the nature of war. You are very close to a universally unforgivable sin in the military of dishonoring the fallen. More specifically you just pisssed on all those men who lost a brother by telling them that they let their brothers down.

think before you open your mouth

I ain't disrespecting any of those that died over here, I have lost my own friends in this war, including family members. I know the sacrifices that have been made. All I was saying is that when you walk around all the FOB's/COP's here in RC East all you see is their symbol spray painted, and giant signs everywhere. Just doesn't seem to me that their heads may have been in the right place doing that when we're here "securing the population" but they felt the need for graffiti....
Now I am not saying that my unit has not done the same, because I have seen ours too, but not to the extent of them.

I wouldnt consider spraying their symbol or making signs graffiti. I'd call it unit pride. Kinda like a dog pissing on a tree or hydrant or something. Gotta mark your territory and where you've been.

March 2003 with the 173D Able Co. 2/503D ABN IN into Northern Iraq, got my mustard stain. Nice flight from Italy and in-flight rig. People say the DZ was secure...those people weren't there. It definitely wasn't Panama, but we received some small arms fire...and we didn't know what we were getting into. I ran into a chute on the way down. What was impressive was the amount of C-17s...never seen that many before and this was my 84th jump. When I got out I had just over 100 static and 24 free fall...and my knees are shot at 32. lol good times
Airborne!

Sky Soldiers!!!

I would really hope that you're just talking out your ass and I hope that the other members reading this realize that. Remember no plan ever survives the first enemy contact. The stupid stuff that happens seems to happen at the junior leader level. Namely the kill squad debacle that made headlines a few months ago are the black marks that units carry and will carry. That is true problem with the Army. The cowboy mentality has to go away.
absolutely agree with this 100%!!

I have not been to Airborne school. However I collect Halo pay and have around 1,000 jumps, the vast majority of those jumps are out of military aircraft. Here's a pic from a training jump we did last Friday.






Now, before you unleash the hounds , I have 12 Years TIS, several deployments and 2 years Drill Sgt time. But I am deffinately a dirty nasty 19D "leg" at heart.

Nice! I did DZ coverage at Bragg for some Golden Knights, and they almost had me ready to try out. Looking to get my civilian license now.

Yeah, we jump a lot. I've done 16 training jumps in a day. You do have to be Airborne or "willing to attend Abn School" After 2 years on the team I'm finaly going at the end of March. Not looking forward to static line

We are always looking for good teamates. Check out armygk.com, there is a Tryout link towards the top with all the info you need. The normal tour is 4 years, it used to be 3 but we struggled to keep slots full, then it's back down to the trenches.

Static line ain't bad. I love the rush that you get as soon as the jump doors open and everyone is yanking on their static lines making the cable jump up and down, then as soon as you exit the bird and every thing is quiet. Nothing beats that feeling, in my opinion.
And being the #1 jumper watching the ground fly by like that, those jumps are the best, especially since you don't gotta worry about the guy in front of you screwing you over lol
