Anybody here ever experience combat?
    #3275195 - 10/25/04 02:26 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Or do you know somebody who has experienced combat?

Is it a positive experience? I am not implying that killing
people is something to look forward to, but I am wondering if
that kind of struggle and suffering builds character and makes a
person appreciate life more.

Or is it a negative experience that scars one for life and that
you would never want to experience again?

I know a lot of people that have seen combat, new and old.

My uncle talks of it as the darkest part of his life and wishes he could get it to stop playing in his mind. It's something that is impossible to forget, hearing the screams of a man as napalm is melting the flesh from his still living body. That I definately don't see as an uplifting feeling.

My friends who were in Iraq, one of which was in a stand off for over 24 hours witnessed two of his buddies killed, one shot right in the face. His squad had to kill I believe 8 opposing soldiers and lost 2 of their own while doing so. This is nothing compared to my uncle's experience, but my friend said that he was basically in a zombied state after the entire battle had finished and he was sitting at his bunker.

According to both of them:

You don't understand how hard it is to be talking to a friend one minute and the next leaving his lifeless body in the path of fire to save your ass and kill another human being.

You will remember their screams for help for the rest of your life.

You will be killing for reasons other than your own freedom.



How great does it sound to you?

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
