Default earned the purple heart last week

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

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 ******* 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.

A light duty chit in a combat zone... that's funny.

Glad you're ok and hope you make it home in one piece.

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 ******* 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.
