one thing i want to say why????????????
why u want to know do u really want to kill someone or why anyone do this cruel game everybody in this earth have right to live either with good experience or with bad experience so its not our job to take away this right from anyone.
but instead of all that there would be something different in ur life either u would get smart towards doing this bad job or may be you feel guilty that why u did that .
in last if u r good one then definety u would feel quite ashamed that you are a creation of god not a devil to take away the life of other you are here to give life to others not to take back.

I don't know who killed the guy, but when I searched his body, I found a picture of a young woman and a young girl...his wife and daughter? Although yellowed and cracked, I still have that picture 40 years later and come across it from time to time. I'm not ashamed to say I've shed tears when I've looked at that picture. I wondered where she lived in Viet Nam, what happened to her after she was made a widow; what happened to her (and her daughter) after the war. His daughter looked to be about 5 or 6 in the picture in 1967.
A Vietnamese friend of mine told me that without a father, a Vietnamese girl would have a hard time getting a husband because it would be unlikely there would be a sufficient dowry without a father in the family, unless her mother remarried (which, during those times, would be highly unlikely).
Every soldier is someones son who will grieve for a long time.

What a stupid question.

People never seem to stop amazing me on here.

I though it might have been a real question until you asked if it made you smarter.

This is the question I hate the most to be asked and making a joke out it is worse.

I found out the M4 carbine and M855 5.56x45mm cartridge is not nearly as effective as it should be.

Later, since I was Company Armorer and near adopted son, I asked a harmless favor from the First Sergeant.

I got an M16A2. A Belgian one, my "FN16".

I honestly NEVER thought that I would WANT an M16, but I am convinced that the fact I had a rifle - with a purchased C-More reflector sight - is the reason I survived my first combat tour from March 2003 - April 2004.



As for what I felt?

In all honesty . . . I really felt surprisingly little. With the exception that "The weapon is NOT working".

Turns out every round I fired at the Haji hit . . . and went THROUGH him.

It was around thirty meters when I first fired. Initially six entry wounds and six exit wounds, after the third controlled pair, I dropped to a knee and put a round through his right hip bone, which dropped him immediately. Then I rushed up and shot him in the head.

I never thought a human being could produce a scream like that.

I did not even have to make the justification of "Him or Me", I just felt numb. Nothing of note for any of the individuals I shot at. The fact I was numb was more frightening.

Except for that scream.

It stays with me. Comes out every now and again during the night, but I don't even remember the bastard's face, just the scream.

The CO, 1SG and Chaplain helped me figure out that it was not my inner sociopath screaming to get out, but it was more that I had a higher maturity level - I was an "Old Man" at 26 at the time - and I was better prepared to not dwell on it.

Able to compartmentalize, as we say.

In combat I felt real anxiety, yet in many ways felt cold and detached from it all.

Quite surreal compared to the stories of other men.

You don't get smarter, you just get older by one more day.

Until the next mission, then you do it all over again. There is no *********, because you know you are not bulletproof.

For me there was just detached focus as I looked for a fight.

I had an M14 rifle in my tool box my second time in.

The guy I popped with that found out how good a shot I was, as I hit him just below his left eye. My other 1SG, who had ordered me to fire, was impressed. The M118 sniper round is a real argument winner.

He gave me a dollar he bet with the CO, who I knew from my last duty station and was picked by him for his radioman and part of his Personal Security Detachment, that I would nail the enemy in the head.

To balance my Karma, I gave the 1SG an ice-cold Coca-Cola when we finally got back to the FOB.

We were both relieved the Fates had been satisfied.



The one thing I AM afraid of is talking to people about it in person.

I wound up making some people uncomfortable the only time I did. And I am leery of speaking to people at the VA, as I cannot account for true confidentiality there.

The LAST thing I need is for my name to pop up on a "Banned from ownership" list when I go to purchase a rifle or pistol.

I did not fight for this country just to be DENIED my rights.
