Pre-deployment Training, Carrying the M249 was fun for about 5 minutes
I got stuck with the 249 for all of basic with the exception of one week which I had the 240B...I'm 5'9 ~120lbs soaking wet, LOL. I enjoyed the 249 though when we did WTX. Now I'm at AIT (94A, Ordnance leads the way!) and haven't seen a weapon in weeks.
I love the 240B and the SAW, I was Marksmanship Instructor for a while and I was 5'7" 140 and was the 240b gunner in my squad before I moved up to squad leader, nothing like making them talk back and forth during support by fire loved it, but I loved kicking in doors better yea!
Its kind of nice to see what other pics people get to take while there, believe me I have some I would like to show you but as another fellow soldier said OPSEC is everyone's mission and I dont want anyone getting any ideas about me hahaha
Well when I was an NCO that was not a very good idea to beat soldiers up, since you are in a combat zone with a bunch of angry teenagers with live rounds and explosives, that's not a very effective way of discipline. My NCOs kept the fight were it should be, against the enemy.
I never treat my soldiers with disrespect. When they **** up I make sure they know it, they learn from it, and we all move on. It sucks enough out here, no need to make it any worse then it already is.
I have, and they sounds like the entire can explodes when you open it, and just about everyone at the table "feels" it.
Gotta love that picture of the **** tubes.. good stuff. Nothing like aiming into that **** without letting your dick touch anything in the middle of the night on a black out FOB.. can't even see your hand in front of your face if you try.
it's kinda weird at first cause the way they have it set up, is everyone is facing eachother while they ****.
We joke to but I guess thats the difference between an 03 and 11b, Im not trying to get into a pissing contest I could care less about what you did to pass the time. After 3 tours there is nothing that had not been done.
