What's up high-speed..?
Right down the road from you - 3/101st aviation from 93 - 96.
Well, got a buddy in there - u2u the name (maybe) and see what's what...
I caught wind of the night stalkers after signing up for SFAS...talked to a few berets that told me it was a tight outfit and the TDY pay was tops...
So, I meet with the 3/5 platoon sgt. (55Bravo here) and things go just fine...I'm already counting the days to being a night stalker and all the fun that goes with it...(yes, the job is serious and deadly, just tealin' how I felt about it then, right or wrong)
Well, the previous month I had to go to Air Assault school and showed up drunk as hell...long story short - got AR 15 and 2 weeks extra duty...and it was my very own Sgt. Major that picked me up, ran me about 3 miles (yes, I puked a few times) and then smoked me in front of the WHOLE battalion...
In the end, 160th contacts my battalion to verify my MOS, ect. and guess who gets on the phone to represent..? Yes, the goddamn SM...
They denied the transfer...
But hey - Black Hawk Down happened about 6 months after that...maybe I got lucky...
Appreciate the post...take care.

Try being a rational human being, and all that other stuff. It's one thing having being in a situation where you can be killed, while trying to kill other humans, and knowing that you can kill. It's another to be a member of the 1337st Chairborne Rangers Internet Division.

Whatever you saw, I hope it wasn't under adversarial conditions.
If a superior ordered me to attack an alien there is no way I'd follow that order. A lot of service people have been killed in such confrontations, accidents happen.

You come here, you start a thread looking for people to share their stories while you won't share your own because your "not comfortable"?
The very least you could do is provide something to back up your claims, but instead you attack people who request you prove your claims?
What kind of special ops is uncomfortable with anything? Its the rules of the world. if you make a statement you be darn sure you can back it up. That goes anywhere and you well know that. Man up and walk the walk.
BTW guys.. this guy registered today just to make this post. Reese is the name of the guy John Connor sent back to help his mother in Terminator.
We may have a troll. I would love to be wrong about that.. but it smells like chicken!

LOL! I am sorry but that made me laugh. Like I said I know the OP and this is tooooo funny. No he is not a chicken I can assure you. Also I dont believe he even watches The Terminator, believe I tried to and he wouldnt watch it. So that theory is gone!
