i'm deployed to iraq right now a little area about 20 min. away from camp fallujah, goin house to house setting up patrol bases, well i was standing post on the roof with 3 other marines and we heard a gun shot, we automatically got down and sought cover, and my leg felt like it was burning, i looked down and sure enough there was blood everywhere. i got rushed to fallujah surgical and they patched me up right away, suprisingly it missed everything just hit the meaty portion of my calf. the best part about it is that the only thing i got was a week of light duty

no word on the shooter, its a sniper that's been taking shots at us then lays low for a while, i still have 6 months left and i'll be damned if i come home without giving the shooter a double tap to the head

I knew a LTC that got a purple heart cuz a mortar had come in, and the shrapnel missed him, but sand got in his eye and scratched it. Glad to hear your ok, though. Make it home safe.

After the double tap you can say my favorite Marine line "He's fucking dead now" just don't do it infront of some cameras. My grandfather was lucky in WWII he was yawning and sniper got him right through both cheeks.

I had a dirtbag in my unit that was in a truck that an IED blew up next to.....this SSG crapped his pants and got a PH for it.....really no other issue but he shat himself....

Glad you are OK....well as ok as you could be still in the sand box.....hope you get home same and soon.

Keep you head tucked in your helmet! Glad to hear your okay. And I like ur attitude about the double tap, remember: anything worth shooting once is worth shooting again.

MAn. Make sure to say you use a "Controlled Pair" to the head. With the fucking bleading hearts in the area, they say a Double tap isn't a "Legal Shot". WTF ever.

Make sure to do 2 to the head and 2 to the heart. That way you KNOW he's dead.

as a matter of fact we do operate out at op 4 and op raider, we get so much mortar fire and pop shots out at op 4 you'd think it was open season on our ass or something
