********** THAT MARINE THAT HAD THAT ILLEGAL SHOOTING ??????

Post by rich1001 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 2:26 am

OK THAT WAS ME, JUST BEFORE 1ST BATTALION 1ST MARINES MOVE OUT, WHILE GUARDING HQ COMPANY, 1ST MARINE DIV. YES, THEY HAD ME AND ANOTHER MACHINC HOOK UP WITH AN ATTACHMENT WITH 1ST COMM. COMPANY. THE GUN WENT OFF WHILE TRYING TO CLEAN MY M249 S.A.W, THE BOLT WASN'T HOME, AND ALMOST SHOOT ANOTHER MARINE HEAD OFF. DAM INCIDENT EVEN GOT IN THAT MOVIE GENERATION X.

OK, SORRY FOR THAT MARINES. BUT THAT CONVOY THREW THEM 'OIL WELL FIRES,' COST MY SON'S BIRTH DEFECTS. THAT'S WHY WE WERE TOLD NOT HAVE OFFSPRINGS FOR TWO YEARS. SOME HOW I JUST DIDN'T GET THAT MESAGE.

AFTER BEING IN THE FRONT OR OUT IN THE FIELD, WE CAME BACK TO OUR SECTION, MOTOR T COMPANY.

IT WAS STRANGE THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE TAKING THEM DAM PB PILLS, "PYRIDOSTIGMINE BROMIDE" ON TIME, EVERY TIME, ALL DAY LONG.

GUNNY FOUND OUT, AND HAD US STAND IN FORMATION AND WATCH EVERYBODY TAKE IT. I CAN SAY THEY DIDN'T SALLOW, SO THAT WAS IT FOR ME TO.
