    Riding through Afghan town, has a little stop and some kid is selling shit. I bought bread, yogurt to dip it in all sorts of tasty treats! (all afghan, loved it but fire shits the next few days) anyways he is offering to get some fire water for me and the crew! I have been hading this kid cash for hours so I was like hey w/e 20 buck isnt to bad! He takes off to get the stuff, comes back and starts closing up his shop and now I am like well he's done! dont see him again... smart kid, I totally respect his drive and initiative! If only the rest of the zombies had that! :wiggle:


    Cliffs:

    I think were classy enough by not being allowed to drop bombs with in 500 ft from a building... even if I am getting shot at... Our higher ups are classy enough and risking our lives because of hearts and minds as we are "guests in their country". Sorry, i am fighting an enemy that treats them like shit. I say Jewed because thats what happened I don't think they care what I say on OT. Ever been on the ground gun in hand, mortars going off 25 ft away? :bigthumb:

    Been through plenty, enough not to brag about it on OT :bigthumb:

    Also, I didn't use it as an excuse to act like a douche.

    how is your jump to conclusions mat working out for you?

    i fail to see any humor in your post or any of the following posts where you fail at trying to justify why you break the rules and laws we are bound by as members of the United States military.

    please point out where i said that i was perfect. i am not the one bragging about immature shit

    Definitely not an MP! lol although I did consider it for a sec when I enlisted. Company commander... If I am ever a company commander or an officer. I wish for someone to shoot me! Nothing against them I just wouldn't be able to to there job :noes:

    @Kazimer Some people obviously enjoyed this little tidbit of info, whether you found it humorous or not idc. Unless you have not broken a law or rule as a soldier then I dont see where its your right to be an ass about things like this. You are not my judge nor jury. I was not bragging I wanted to coax out whether I was speaking to some one who had actually dealt with the people and the enemy first hand or someone spouting off shit they heard from CNN back in the rear :rolleyes:

    :uh:
    you continue to jump to conclusions, but hey you can't do my job and you even stated as such.

    But since you are so curious as to whether I deployed. Yes I have. I have also been engaged by the enemy and not allowed to fire back. I have driven over 8 confirmed IEDs and past 2 EFPs that failed to fire. I had to pull the pieces of bodies of friends out of HMMWVs after they were hit by an EFP. I rolled out of the COP 6 days/wk and went with less security than most would ever think of patrolling with. I lived off of less than 800 calories/day..thanks to our non-NATO coalition partners called the Georgian Army. Do I think I am better than others for having done so? Fuck no. Seeing shit like that kills a piece of the human spirit that you never get back

    I am not perfect nor have I ever said anything as such. However I am smart enough to not brag about things I have done that were against the rules, especially when it is as serious as breaking general order number one downrange, thats just wreck-less behavior.

    A former peer of mine is serving a long sentence in Leavenworth for buying hooch downrange, driving "his tank" that he was not qualified to drive AND hitting an IED that resulted in the deaths of everyone but him....all for a hooch run

    I was not trying to brag about buying hooch nor my combat experience because I will say, yes, it is limited, especially compared to the circumstances you have described. I did not receive from the kid, was only taken, therefore not breaking the general order. The only person I was asking about combat experience was The Method because of his comment. Your comment was about the rules, nothing to do with combat. I apologize, I misunderstood what you though I was bragging about. I thought it (my story) had humor, my team did as well and I figured OT might! Can't convict someone for FAILING to break the law! So I was within the realm safety... now if I were to speak about my time in Tijuana with the hookers and coke that would be a different story :nickos:


    **** Disclaimer**** Kalel36 has never, nor intends to, associate with hookers and coke... in raunchy Mexican towns *** :p
