I have never read something so rediculous in my life, Its funny I didnt see this post earlier this week, I was in my Intel shop getting some info about some stuff and they were talking about this and heres the Story floating around 2nd Recon and 3rd Special Operation Bn,

He was the rear man on a patrol, the mission was to push through a certain AO for a quick route recon and the patrol was a 50 man squad with engineers ect, they dispersion got to far apart and he got to far back and was pinched off and captured. I dont care what story you heard the point of this whole thing is maybe mission accomplihment shouldnt always be infront of troop welfare.

your version of the story has no honor.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that your time on this board will be short....

That will be up to SilverBullet but I hope he gets to stay so the rest of us can learn how to hunt gunmen and find out what is really going on in the war.

So your second or third hand story holds any merit? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound, especially considering that you work in an intel shop?

You called out the wrong guy and your choice of screen name further confirms your amazing lack of SA. My guess is that you're maybe a PFC and think that this board is a mil dot com clone.

They seem to travel in small herds...

we don't hear anything for a while, then a few pop up for target practice...and they go to ground again.

Mandatory Christmas parties so the junior troop know you care about them. It should be on a weekend because if they see you giving up your precious free time to spend the day with them, they'll have to respect that.

Who you callin' a fairy lady? I'll fight a girl/drill sergeant!

Actually, I'm just going to call your command and suggest it... mwuhahahahahaha... I think getting to know each other when the students aren't around will make for a better training team.

Oh yeah, I'll just saunter on down while you're in a murderous rage caused by me. What's the best way to get there from the airport?
