    The main reason I am posting this is I have some friends in the same unit, so I found out about it through Facebook. Sometimes it hits a little too close to home.

    Remove the soldiers and send drones and nukes. Annihilate them. Fuck innocent bystanders. Nobody gave a fuck about innocents when we nuked Japan.

    Almost posted that but out of respect wanted to keep it more personal and less political in a thread like this...

    RIP buddy.

    (Quick political comment)

    I'm glad 82nd Airborne out of Bragg is no longer considered a combat oriented unit. :rolleyes:

    That's bullshit. If you're killed the least they can do is send you home the next day.

    Private Cowboy: Tough break for Hand Job. He was all set to get shipped out on a medical.

    Private Joker: What was the matter with him?

    Private Cowboy: He was jerkin' off ten times a day.

    Private Eightball: No shit. At least ten times a day.

    Private Cowboy: Last week he was sent down to Da Nang to see the Navy head shrinker, and the crazy fucker starts jerking off in the waiting room. Instant Section Eight. He was just waiting for his papers to clear division.

    The odds of getting killed or injured over there have never been high in general, but if you're in combat arms or some combat support type like MPs, transportation even CA and PSYOP you're out of the wire quite often and the odds get worse. Add to that the multiple deployments you're likely to be a part of the odds get even hairier. The fucking non-combat injuries and deaths were numerous as well. That last month was always a gut-wrenching time if I stopped and thought about it too long.

    RIP SPC Hickman
