    ...after or during a war situation, and then puss out as we're about to deploy.

    I knew this guy. He was 30 years old. He came in as an E4 (SPC). He found out that our unit was going to Afghanistan. He joined 2 years after sept 11 and some time after the fall of iraq. So he knew what we were up against. Anywho...he found out our unit was getting deployed then goes up to the chaplain and puss's out right there.

    I was fucking pissed 'cause he should have known what he was getting himself into.

    His excuse was, "I don't believe in war." okay pal. So why in the hell did you volunteer in the first place?

    We are in an infantry battalion. Similar to an INF echelon.

    Oh yeah, that dude was a 63B (Light wheel mechanic). Still regaurdless of his MOS, he should have known that he has a chance of getting deployed.

    That dude pissed me off so bad 'cause he always would say some bs like, "Kyu, I'm a 30 year old man. I'm a grown up...blah blah blah..." and then he pusses out.

    That is pretty sad...I served from '95-99.
    Closest I got to combat was a TDY in Spain during the bombing campaign in Oct '98. I would have been more than ecstatic to serve my country better if I had the chance.
