    we where moving up on a tunnel complex when three HF teams came under sustained fire

    we moved up on them and my team brought round a flank as we topped the ridge we came under fire from a 12.7

    we brought up the FAV to bring the twin .50's to bare, i left the vehicle and headed right my mate went left and my 2ic Andy was driving

    they had the ridgelines topped with mines

    Andy hit a mine , KIA

    i got hit with fragments and part of the suspension we think

    Dan was in the rear manning the fifty and broke both ankles

    Dan kept on firing though.. when he cooked the fifty he fired Laaws rockets until he had none left , then used his styer till that ran out

    i was propped up against a rock to help out when i could with the 203 but was fading out from the med's

    US chopper crews got me out later , one deliberatly drawing fire so the other could come in a get me

    hairy day but we stopped em but cost , well it happens eh

    but would be back in a flash if i could, but reality is i'll be 53 in a couple weeks

    45 was way to old to be playin grunt anyway, but been doing it since i was 16

    Airbourne Infantry, only way to go eh

    theres a treaty called ANZUS

    a attack on you is a attack on us

    this comes from a previous treaty signed when The Great White Fleet visited Oz in 1909

    longest military agreement in the world

    Glad your going airbourne , work hard, listen to your instructors and dont get dumb idea's ;) teams win not individuals,

    we need to win this one.. just need to politicians to stop tying one hand behind our backs, war is war, they made war on the US, they should know the full fury without the PC rules we got now..

    cheers to you Corey, cheers to all our troops fighting to keep us free

    Since my friend recently graduated from West Point, finished Ranger training this past week, and is assigned to the 10th Mountain Div. I'd have to say I support it if it is run by the commanders and not by politicians, the UN, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, or ABC. Failure in Afghanistan is not an option. Our boys need a commitment from the public and Washington. If they are going to Monday morning quarterback this, they may as well bring them all home. I already lost a marine friend in Fallujah. Semper Fi J-Man.

    US troops are engaged. I, as a US citizen, must support the war. I do not have to like it but I must support it.

    I support the Afghan war, but would make one really big change: drop Iraq right onto the Iraquis' shoulders and move a lot of our troops from there to Afghanistan. I just think Afghanistan is more important.
    The rest I'd send to "help our allies the Pakistanis" in rooting out Al-Quaeda there.
    You know they want that, and would support it.
    As our allies and all.

    (edit) Yes I'm being a tad fascetious about Pakistan wanting us to be there. Unlike some longer standing allies, I haven't seen what they've done for us lately.

    Politicians tried running the war in Vietnam and look what happened. They are trying to run the war now and look what's happening. They just DON'T LEARN. Admirals and Generals are paid very well to run and fight wars. Just let them do their jobs. Let them do what they are paid to do. It seems real easy to me.
