Combat Town


Don't get me wrong, I appreciated the day's worth of squad tactics and clearing buildings of "insurgents". But does the Navy really want surgeons, trauma nurses, and corpsman ridding the world of bad guys? Lets just say if you see me in the news doing this.......that things are definitely not going as well as we had hoped........

Ha......funny comment. I hope the Navy never does have to have corpsmen, surgeons, and flight nurses clearing rooms or fighting combatants but if they do, I think we're in ok hands if they're like you. Something tells me you know your way around an M-16. :-) Just keep your helmet strapped on and don't go tryin to show off your mad skills!! :-)

I hope that if I see you in the news you will be wearing sunglasses and soaking in the sun while sipping a Margarita. But keep your weapon near by just in case.

.. and the sunscreen! Hopefully squad tactics was a little easier on you guys than being in the violent motion Helo dunker. Kinda remind you of that old washer mom used to have, Carl? That thing was pretty scary violent. I remember her sitting on it all the time just trying to anchor it down. Now you know what your jeans went through every time you washed them! Anyway, I'm really proud of you Carl, always have been, always will be. I love ya

Two words for that guy in the lower pic here...ANGER MANAGEMENT! That's what Iraq needs... a bunch of psychologist to help them with anger management. HHhhhmmm sounds like an SNL skit in the making. imagine a room full of insurgents crying by letting go of the time when they were a wee little insurgent and the other kids at the terrorist training camp made fun of the color of his scarf (whatever you call them).

No such thing as anger management...only anger resolution. Someone hasn't watched her Andy Andrews DVD yet..... :)
I had to get some pics of that guy: he was 250 pounds of pure muscle, and splintered the door off the hinges when he blasted thru...the Marine instructor just shook his head and threated to kick us out of his combat town. We said "make us"
As for me, I went thru holding a martini with my free hand...they never knew what hit em'

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
