Dont get angry I heard some of them abusing the gun shooting civillians with sniper rifle and they always defended themselves with military code they just leaving couple of granades and food when a civillian comes to pick up they shoot him or her regardless of age.Cause code frees you open fire when there is a pillage of American Army goods.

I haven't heard of anything like that happening. Outside of the range we never actually fired either of the two EBRs that we had.

Well brother then Im glad atleast your pals not abusing.WE heard it from a guy lost his son or something quite sad Bah war all same.Father told me about grand grand fathers war stories.Some soldier always shoot some civils never changes gun abusers thats why my nations army give counted ammo and asks each target and reason but for Iraq its hard ranges are smaller distance from one fort to another getting longer and more dangerous.There are dudes with Soviet sniper rifles hunting soldiers guarding fort towers in that kinda place organise ammo would be useless and loss of time.

Its really great to talking with you cause so few I met shares war stories and pictures.

Thank you. I tried to reenlist for it but I was denied. Medics are a high priority MOS now, or so I am told.

Bummer. I could imagine medics are much needed at the moment. With any luck, we'll get out of Viet-raq and Cambodistan and you can get that photography MOS. I grew up during the Vietnam War so I'm a bit cynical about the current situation. I support you guys and the tough job you have but the reasons for the Iraq war were BS (as it turned out) as were the reasons for getting into Vietnam all those years ago.

I hope your right about getting out. I agree on all counts regarding Iraq, no doubt.

It seems that things are proceeding more or less on schedule to get out of Viet-raq. Cambodistan is probably another story. I don't think they learned from the Russians' experience in that particular s**thole country.

Snipers have a very important work, don't they ?
They actually need to cover their friends, not hunt the enemy, 'eh ?

Greg-frey Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Absolutely, we actually do very little offensive actions these days and mostly we use them as our eyes and for security.

Their work is really important and responsible.
I saw a movie (not hollywood's) about sniper's training. My thought ? "These guys are really patient".

:icongreg-frey:
Greg-frey Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeah no doubt. Those two are not actually snipers but what we call " designated marksmen". We use them in a different way I suppose and they haven't had as much training as an actual sniper, but they are both stand up guys and it is always nice to have them around.

Sometimes they will and sometimes they won't. It just depends. Most of our missions are fairly short so they may switch out once or not at all.
