  1. The Corona Virus Thread

    Hello everyone, i haven't posted here for a couple of years, being busy with real life issues, but stayed in contact with a few of us and just came to say hi. We are in lockdown in Spain, i was in the Army Logistics Academy converting after promotion (from Infantry to Electronics, feels like a monkey training to become an astronaut) and they basiclly told of to F back home and carry on with the subjects online. It is kind of frustrating since we just got certified back in Law Enforcement and NBQ and could be out with some units wich were deployed providing support. Family is Ok, but my sister works as a therapist in a nursing home and has lost several patients to Covid-19. She was quite attached to them, and it is taking its toll, i'm concerned she might get old-sergeant syndrome as this crap goes by. Just wish you all the best, take any lockdown or quarantine measures seriously, it sucks but you get used to it. Don't give it any chances, it is far more serious than any flu and it is quite a cruel way to die.
  2. RIP Sam Shepard

    RIP. It was ALS as far as i heard
  3. Dunkirk

    Christopher Nolan acknowledged that the editing was risky and kind of experimental, but the photography was awesome. Have some quirks with some stuff, wich you may have if you saw the movie, but overall i enjoyed it. Anyone else mind to share their thoughts?
  4. KC-130 Crash in Mississippi 16 Dead

    I had the pleasure to jump from a VMGR-252 KC-130 about a year ago, great guys. Godspeed Leathernecks
  5. Somehow, i wish the Sukhoi pilot made it alive, but still, i think a NoFlyZone sould have been enforced before ISIS took over
  6. I'm going to war against a mole!

    Oh, vet stories from the Great Rodent War? Me wants in! Turns out we had a cold wave or something this winter. It snowed after like 70 years on Cartagena, my hometown, on the shore of the mediterranean. I was in the dining room with my family and girlfriend, recovering after screwing up my collarbone, when i saw that big ass rat crawling by the chimney, taking shelter from the cold or something. When i called it up, everybody scrambled out of the room, while i came unto the rodent, to, say befriend it. Having the civilians evacuated to the kitchen, this limp paratrooper, with the encouragement, moral support and technical advise of out family Navy representative (dad), got to kill the rat. After having my airsoft G36 jam on me (had neglected it for about 2 years to be fair) and trying to impale it with a walking cane, i had to crush it under my boot. The psycoest fun i had during sick leave that winter. However, it did not end there. The rat had dug a hole in the lawn and i was concerned that it may be a sanctuary to more RatCharlies, so i decided to napalm the shit out of it. My parents just were about to pave it anyway, so they told me to leave it alone. But like i said, i was bored to hell. So when they were both at work, i went out shopping and came back with a bottle of zippo gas and a box of firecrakers. The biggest i found, they were like dynamite sticks. So a poured the bottle of gas down the hole and dropped one of the firecrackers. I didn´t here it thump, only had a burst of flames erupt from the hole and lots of smoke coming up from the ground. The stench was unbearable. The little kids of the Moroccan family across the street, wich should have been at school, were laughing their asses looking from their window, while i was pumped out with this "fuckfuckfuck i did it again" feeling. I hosed down the hole trying to put the smoke out, only to have it turn from black to white, a dense, even stinkier cloud of steam coming up. It was taking forever. Just as i had this feeling "somebody saw me do it, or is just about to" i had this lovely granny, a couple of houses down the street, walk by back from buying some groceries and stop to chat, asking me about my injury "Nah, im doing better" while i pretend to be watering the grass wich still had some snow on it while casually ignoring the cloud of smoke flying a block away, the stench and the puffs of smoke coming out of the ground.
  7. I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.

    In basic, that show may be intimidating "Wow, is this for real? This guy is going to eat my heart out". Later on, with a few jump induced bruises on my ass, i had a barely out ot teenage superior (leg, pog, fobbit, you name it) trying to do that to me because he had got pressed to look mean. It was because i had my MG4 slung my way, not against regulations, but a general advise. In fact, i had already showed my sarge how i did it and he made me show it to the new guys. I almost got chewed up when i couldn't help but chuckle a bit trying to look all serious at attention, with him screaming at his toes and a wimpy pitch, my sarge giving me that "don't laugh you fucker" look in the background.
  8. WWII After WWII
