Jerzkid, God Bless you. Your humble service makes us all proud to be Americans. Selfless sacrifice to defend our country and give the oppressed the same opportunity for freedom = Hero atriot:
Your attitude makes you one of my role models. :cheers:GO_DRVN said:I have what I consider to be one of the best jobs in the Army and that is being an Army Career Counselor...
In over 19 years of doing this particular job I am proud of the fact that I have never once run across a Soldier that thought that I screwed them over in the process of keeping them in the Army.
jerzkid said:(My Grandfather) was wounded at Chosin when a jeep he was in hit a landmine. He took shrapnel in his lower back. One of his very best friends, who happened to be sitting directly to his right, was killed. He was a field radio operator with 1bn, 2nd Marines, C co.
I was wounded when my truck ran over what was determined to be 2 enemy placed, M-18 American Anti-tank mines (for those of you that are curious about how big a blast that is, it is 36 pounds of composition B). I broke the bottom 5 vertabrae in my lower back. One of my very best friends, who was sitting directly to my right, was killed. Attached to my unit and with us on the convoy that day, was 1bn, 2nd Marines, C co.
