During continuation training in Belize I was patrolling near the border, and we came under fire after challenging them, them being an incursion.

I dropped and picked a target.

I put 3 rounds in his T.

Turned out he was 15 years old.

I can't let go of that.

It haunts me every day.

Mexican or Guatemala border?

Either way, let it go. As you said, you were shot at.

Guatamala - the usual disputed border where they run drugs

We asked them who they were.

That is some [snip] right there

I don't know how I would feel. Someone shoots at me and I will take their life in protection of my own. But I would feel horrible about the whole situation. So I can kind of understand your situation, kinda.

Time will pass and the memory will get dimmer and dimmer. I wish you well in this dilemma

budsk - I agree with everyone else who said that you gotta do what you gotta do but on the flip side, it's not so easy for people with a conscience to just let it go. For us to tell you to go easy on yourself is simple because we're not the ones living with the guilt. You should find some solace in knowing that you're a good and decent person or you wouldn't be having these feelings of guilt and you owe it to yourself to go and get some professional help to reconcile your feelings. I hope you find some peace!

Central America is becoming a hotbed for drug gangs and violence. High unemployment doesn't help the situation. I expect things to get worse.


“Youth gangs in Central America in some areas are a predominant player," Olson said. Youth gangs often control pieces of territory — for example, a roadway or coastal route — that become important when transnational organized crime groups want to move their product through the area.

Peace is hard to find.

I only went into SF because I wanted to stretch myself.

I was supposed to be training.

Interesting!
Will you please expand a bit more?
Who is "we"?
Are you in the military?
Where were you and what were you doing there? When did this happen?
Why are you telling us this?

Sorry for all the questions but just seems that there is not much to the story except "I shot some one".

I went up and down some welsh hills, and hid in a few of them as well

You should know what that means.
