Listenining to replay.....PO was wrong about making up the Dead Bug. My father was Special Forces and I remember doing the Dead Bug (same name and position) as a kid when I got in trouble(late70's- early 80's)...Years later in an interview I did for high school (1987) on veterans...I asked about dead bug...he said at Fort Bragg they had to do it for physical training and as a punishment for screwing up.

It's a stupid name, no matter who named it. Shouldn't it be dying bug? After all, isn't something still alive if its kicking and moving its legs?

I was born in 87. Aside, my dad taught me the dead bug as well, but he was a river rat in vietnam for the navy.
Did you ever ask him why he didn't "friendly fire" upon John Kerry?

fuckin.. john kerry, what a joke. mother fucker was too busy soakin up shrapnel so the real guys could get the job done.

my dads crew pumped their tunnel systems full of napalm, got sprayed by agent orange (which attribute to our fucking ridiculous medical bills). he says he used a bow and arrow more often than a rifle or mounted gun or anything

My dad would kill John Kerry if given the chance calls... him a traitor...Never saw my dad so vehemently pissed at a person.... and he did alot of Agent Orange legal stuff back in the 80's for the vets..I got to meet the guy from C.H.iP.s.... Larry Wilcox.

errr... how did this turn into a referendum on Kerry.

there are 2 opinions of vets on Kerry

1 - Vets who think we shouldn't have been in Vietnam in the first place (i.e. a majority, especially among the drafted) like him.

2 - The vets who think that we ABSOLUTLY should have been there, and how dare you question your superiors before or after orders..... hate him...

The replay where Po Says he invented it is on now
1 - Vets who think we shouldn't have been in Vietnam in the first place (i.e. a majority, especially among the drafted) like him.
And no it is not the majority from what I have encountered most I have met felt it was their duty to go...
Oh and
Happy Veterans Day!
Thank You all for all you gave!!!!

Agreed, Po's a thief. I have done that ball-buster many times, these days the Army calls it the 'Dying Cockroach'.
