*Snip* Mindless drivel
I would avoid a conversation like this. But, I find it funny this person boasts about real world practical situations.
If you want to know what a real world practical situation is. I can have my buddy jump on these forums.
He was a specialist in the 3rd infantry.
He can describe the fact he has expert marskmenship with about 6 different gun types. (that I know of) Both pistols and full auto assault rifles. Ranging up to 800m.
He can describe to you what it's like to stare down the barrel of an 125mm cannon aimed directly at you.
He can describe to you what it's like being blown up by an IED and limping the rest of your life.
He can describe to you what it's like talking to a buddy only to see a hole in his head 5 seconds later.
He can describe to you the unusual circumstances that would or would not lead to your ultimate demise. For example picking up a picture of his gf that fell on the floor right before spray fire ricochets off the hatch of his bradley which would have killed him.
He can describe to you what it's like to have 17 confirmed kills and 2 T72 kills.
He can describe to you rather that Bronze star means jack to him after all that real world practical experience.
These are just things he was able to talk about. I couldn't even pretend to understand what he can't talk about.
People do this for fun, not survivability.
I do not pretend to be an expert by any means. But, I know a troll when I see one.
You want to be all you can be then join the military. But, I find it comical you are quick to judge others but offer little to no experience or expertise as a basis for a forumulated opinion most here have already dismissed as "Trolling."
