    This isn't a discussion unless I drop Jimmy in here. Jumped into Normandy at 17 years old, Bastogne, and Holland (bridge too far).

    RIP Jimmy.

    First tour the U.S. used the Stryker. We certified the concept for the army that year. MRAPs take a hit way better (v-hull) but you’re less of a soft target when you have a .50 cal, M240, two M249s, M203, and 4 M4s sticking out the hatches. Of course we rarely seen who blew us up or shot at us. Just helped avoid sustained fights or emboldened attacks. We had some guys from the same post doing other routes in the same area on our second tour, completely MRAPs. They used to get ambushed with small arms all the time. Something to be said for a response of mass fire.

    Ok, we're getting way to serious in here. Time for something a little different.

    This looks full gonzo, in a good way.

    You have no idea. That dude was always chatting up bitches half his age. All. The. Time. And they were digging it.

    And on 9-11, we were at Reno. It is the only time I ever saw him utterly distraught and incapacitated. My best friend spent quite some time at the bar with him that day and night. Jimmy was his mentor to earn his A&P.

    That makes sense. Most of those guys should have a book written about them.

    Another not well known hero- Kittelson. This dudes book is one of those “this fucking guy is nuts,” books. Well worth the read.

    I think things are still complicated in your head buddy.

    As far as the "Thankyou for your service" comments.....especially on Veterans day....I'm just like Capt. and Shane, i clam up and usually just nod, take a sip of my drink and say something to my buddy sitting next to me at the bar to divert the subject. It's weird, most guys I know are like that.

    As far as the getting shot at/towards....:anonymous:...I'm with Shane on that one...I remember the first time, laying behind a log in a jungle in South America looking at my boy Jay, we were shave head rookies going "I think we are being shot at :notsure: " then hearing, "SHOOT BACK MOTHER FUCKERS!!!!"....so we did. Good times though.

    The only time it really bothered me being shot at was when we were in a rib boat on the ocean chasing the drug runners. Hated that, mainly because I didnt feel like going swimming if they hit the boat. Ever try and swim with armor on and 30 lbs of ammo strapped to you? Think..... the opening scene from Saving Private Ryan. Always scared the hell out of me going out that way, rather take one to the noodle than drown.

    I always think of this when talking about our patrols. Glad I didn’t have to worry about swimming in kit though.

    Just thinking someone might be offended makes me imagine it might be me, which in turn triggers me.
