    Re: ISAF Raw footage - GPMG guy gets shoot in the helmet

    It too bad we couldn't really ever know for sure... but I would venture to say, if everyone in that outfit had like a 40x scope on their rifle they would have done much better spotting enemy. There is no way I would want to go to war without optics on my rifle and some freaking huge spotting binoculars.

      Gill have to agree with you. stuff just seems more boring (might be the wrong word) when you have had people shoot at you.
      This has been my problem. Some doctors told me I have PTSD, I don't though. I don't have nighmares or flashbacks or whatever.

      Just things that get people all excited doesn't get me very excited anymore. My last deployment to Iraq was just last year... and crap was just so boring there now that my team (I was on a MiTT) thought I didn't care or wasn't trying just because I didn't run around like an idiot for nothing. Of course, only myself and the team medic had ever been deployed before (it was my third), so they didn't really get it.

      And to the guy who said they wouldn't want to die for something stupid like Iraq, that's fine. We don't want your sorry brainwashed butt anyway.

        i don't think that his butt is brainwashed. but the comment from vin wasn't a critic on the troops, they just follow orders. (i'm pretty sure, that the iraq discussion took place in an other threat before...)

        the wages stuff... the brits got 16k pounds, thats more than here. and it really depends for which country you serve, especially when it goes to abroad missions. a german pilot for example don't even get the half of an american pilot., when they serve in afghanistan, but i wanna serve my country and don't do that to become rich.

          In peace time, the military is always over paid. In war (especially when the other side is attempting high velocity heavy metal poisoning) you are always seriously underpaid.

              I dont think we are ever overpaid. An E-4 Specialist with kids, off post housing allowance, and Seperate Rats (food money basically) actually qualifies for welfare. That doesn't say "over paid" to me.

                That was a military saying along with “If the military expected you to have a family, they would have issued you one.” The military recruits “individuals” and retains “families”.

                What an SP-4 made in the ’80 was less with base pay, rations not available, housing, VHA and champus health care, some qualified for food stamps. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                  I didn't get paid a LOT... but I got paid enough. When I was single, my monthly pay (deposited bi-weekly) was play money for me. If you're single in the military, you never really have to worry about money. If your bank account hits zero, well... you still have a place to sleep, hot food served three times a day, you'll be warm in the winter, cool in the summer, no worries about the electricity being shut off, etc.

                  As an E-5 living off-post with my wife, I was making about $48,000/yr. Again, that's not breaking the bank, but it was more than enough to live comfortably by itself. Combined with my wife's job, we were making about 80k/yr. Easy living, man.


                  I don't make anything near that much since I've left the military. :D
