    Yeah, 2017 in Africa. Was trying to jack off in a portashitter, and I was fighting the heat. I'm usually slow at it, but this was a race for time. Took everything I had to be able to jack off to pictures of my ex-wife. We ended up following that action by messing around with an E4 from another company. Nobody found out, so it went well. Had to fight the stank on her nasty ass feet, though. Clearly didn't change her socks. It was a struggle, but I feel like I earned a CIB from it, even if never issued.

    The worst thing was that they often lacked ammunition and proper medical equipment in combat areas, and had to carry wounded soldiers for miles to get some kind of medical care.

    Firefights gives an incredibly savage feeling, being under attack by another person with an intent to kill you and being forced to retaliate by any means necessary. Once you have survived it, nothing will feel the same again.

          I remember waaaaaaay back in the day there was this old game called WW2 Online which was pretty much a persistent milsim shooter, kinda like Planetside 2 but more hardcore.
          Anyways some guys were getting into a flame war on the forums about how the different tanks took damage and handled, and one of the guys brought in his grandpa, who was an actual Crusader gunner in WW2 to tell everyone how they actually worked. Dude posted his face and old pictures and everything as proof.
          The games been dead for years but I'm sure you could find the forum posts on the wayback machine somehow. That game was fun while it lasted though.

        I went to mechanic school with an Iran-Iraq vet (he was Iranian.) He mentioned he’d “fought for his home country in their war against Iraq.” I think he was surprised someone my age knew anything about it, at least he looked surprised when he saw the expression on my face after he said that. All he would say when I asked was “I saw so much bloodshed…” He didn’t seem to want to say much else and I sure as hell wasn’t going to press him. Cool guy, great mechanic.

            It was terrible; I was drafted and separated from the wife I'd just married. But you could say it makes you want to appreciate life more, especially life at home because it's something precious. I haven't been off US soil since I came back from Korea and I'll never leave the US again.
            After I shot one of the Koreans I kept his gun for 5 months before the officers took it from me. I had to crawl 50 yards to get that gun.
            My worst experience was getting malaria and worrying that they were going to tell my wife. She was pregnant with my son and I was afraid she would get too upset and something would happen. Malaria was terrible and I almost died. The fever was awful because it would come and go. You're hot one day, freezing the next. And it also messes up your blood so you can't donate it anymore once you've had it.
            The whole time I was there was awful, really. I was in a dugout for days. It was actually more of a hole than a dugout - just enough room to crawl in and out with a little area underground big enough for you and two buddies.
            I hated it in there.

            I didn't have much contact with black people before the Army, but there I was able to live with them.
            Most of them are ok and did the same work as us but there were some lazy guys.
            After the war it took me 15 years to stop hating Koreans and keep at peace with all the suffering I saw there.
            I hope I live to see the day when North Korea is free but I doubt it.

    Yeah plenty. One that springs to mind is being at a halt and the guy right next to me got domed with a single aimed rifle shot. The platoon response was overwhelming firepower to pin down the shooter until part of the element moved up at finished him off.
    There was no time for me to deal with that first guy and I vaguely figured he was dead and put it out of my mind, but after the firefight I found the dude pushing away medics and insisting he was fine. A 54r bullet had somehow managed to lodge right in the brim of his helmet. Guy said on the walk back that it kept poking him in the forehead.
    I don't know if it was an underloaded round, or the corealis effect what that kept that round from penetrating the helmet that it rightfully should have, but that guy got to keep that helmet.

        Oh yeah, it was fun. One time me and my team lead got a call that some local woman said an RPG (reality OG-7) had flown in through her open window and was stuck in the inside wall of her home. We checked it out. I was about two steps behind my buddy when he went to look at this round that was chest height sticking out of the wall. He leaned in and the thing fell onto the hard floor with a loud smack. After like 2 seconds of silence when we realized we were still alive, we picked up the round and took it out to a farm field to blow it up with a small amount of C4. Picrel

    I was TPT for 75th Ranger Regiment on Shank and Bastion. Got mortared and rocketed a bunch on Shank. No ground attacks though. Wasn’t a door kicker anymore but one time when I was operating out of Bastion the intel guys fricked up and when we were doing our call out some dudes with AKs came out from a neighboring compound. I was pulling security on the rear with the other nerds. We had night vision and lasers. They didn’t. I fired one controlled pair along with the eight dudes next to me and remember being super amped up then laughing because the whole thing was so fricking anticlimactic. Then got cussed out for laughing about it. No music. No hero shit. Just another fricking compound we had to clear that night. Five years of my life pissed away at that point for two fricking bullets and an ass chewing. Frick that war was gay.

      I was at a TOC at Shank where we had a live feed to an Apache's camera as it circled around these dudes who stopped a pickup truck and were digging in the road at night. Obviously planting an IED. No clue they were being watched. I watched the feed and the text chatter back and forth from the helicopter to command asking for permission to fire. After like 45 minutes of watching these dudes they got permission and sent one missile. It was kind of weird because it was so late at night and quite on base you could actually here people in other TOCs being like "Frick yeah!" when that text came through.

    2020, we were tasked with aiding a raid group that had to ambush an enemy convoy. they started the attack and ambushed the convoy, then command orders us to get to them from their rear and reinforce our raid group. As we get near, the raid group confuses us as enemy and starts engaging us. I jumped to a ditch and stayed there frozen for about 20 minutes until the fricktards were radioed and told that it was a blue on blue engagement. They casually stop and redirect their fire to the enemy. We get to them and help them raid the enemy reinforcements (was ablut 10 guys who came after the convoy for some reason). buttholes never apologized. Most of them were trigger happy volunteers.

    You could go a whole tour and never see the people trying to kill you. You only see the other guy in a firefight because they fricked up. Of course, you shoot them. Your guys and the other guys mostly are shooting at each other blind. You're not seeing shit, you ain't showing them shit. Mostly it's suppressing and grazing fire. Seeing a target and actually getting a shot is really rare. It's loud, confusing and your adrenaline is off the charts. Yet I was cold and focused, scared but not reacting scared. My mind was at mach 2, but I focus on doing everything right. Go slow really fast is how it is. You can feel it when bullets get close. A sensation on your skin telling you death and pain just passed by that part of your body. Explosions sort of rape you. They slam through your body and hurt when strong enough. They also frick your hearing and disorient you if you eat too much of the shock. That smell, smell of an ammonia and chemical smell. Cordite they say. Explosives have an acrid greasy smell. Lots of blood in the air smells much like piss on a hot surface. Screams of agony really get your attention. Especially when you recognize the voice. I throw grenades towards the other voices. Moving with others is a tight knit dance. Fire, movement, cover.. Smoke for concealment. Knowing what is cover and what's just concealment. Distractions, misdirection. Out guessing the other guys. It's a fight. A deadly fight. The stupid and slow quickly die or get wounded permanently. It's terrifying, exhilarating, enraging and heartbreaking. It's everything, it's nothing. It's a few minutes of a year long tour. The rest is soul destroying boredom. You hate to love it. You hate it. You never want to do it again. You miss it. You wish it never happened. It happens. The pain of my injuries get worse every year. My tinnitus louder. But I care less. I look at my son and would rather be burned alive than have him go through it. But he likely will. Cont.

      So I won't lie or hide anything like my father did about war. War is stupid. Especially for the war fighter. Unless you are really fighting for your cause, your values and home. Not some rich fricks ego or bottom lines. War is evil. Your best friend raped a girl, and you gotta edit that out of your perception at least until you don't need him to stay alive. A little disagreement can mean death, but you can't be a b***h either. It's just like prison, only everyone is carrying weapons. Rank gives you authority, it can't get you respect. Respect is hard won and slowly built and lost in an instant.. Do everything right and proper and you'll die for sure. Get anything wrong you die. So you compromise here, hold a line there, let some local put an AK bullet in your best friend there because everyone knows it's what needs to happen.. Then lie effectively when you tell his wife and daughter he was the best of us and he was so honorable. What's it like in a firefight? Put on a motorcycle helmet with a painted visor next time you're on the freeway. Stomp the accelerator to the floor and keep going until whatever happens happens. Make sure you take all other precautions, wearing your seatbelt and such.. You'll probably survive. The feelings and fear? About the same.

    I've been in a lot of fist fights and those usually suck, ancient and medieval combat was probably horrible

    >Anyone here actually been in combat before? what was it like?
    We went in when we were already exhausted, morale was low, it was dark and it stank, a stale smell of sweat, hit with the sharp trace of piss. I had a nip of whisky and I was chain smoking even as I inserted.I went in the rear my buddy went in the front. Afterward? Ashamed, not something to ever discuss again. Maybe the occasional nightmare. Seeing that forgotten hideous mutilated face again. That's how you were conceived OP and I have not thought of your mother in a long long time

    Vamp here.

    Back when I was still mortal I served in the Legions. I was at the battle of Battle of Carrhae, got taken as a slave there and sold to the vamp who eventually changed me instead of eating me like the others.

    Well, let me tell you, all they say about Roman strategy is not true. "Hurr durr, let's just hang tight until they run out of arrows."

    Frick Crassus. Frick that guy.
