Well I have to agree with sherman on this! A soldier signs up to server fights to survive and comes home a hero that is a soldier in my eyes. A soldier fights so that the man on his left and the man on his right go's home to there familys that love them! because he knows you have a family that loves you and he wants to see you go home too!!!!
War does not decide whos right only whos left!!!

That's my basic definition of a soldier.
Every drop of blood
Every bitter tear
Every bead of sweat
I live for this
If you don\'t live for something you\'ll die for nothing!

Now listen up Cadet Brit!
I don´t just fight for one country.
I wear a uniform and commit extreme violence for all people in the world who are not themselves able to do it. I do this so you, me and everyone else can live the life we want without fear. This is an obligation the soldier assumes. Just like your local police officer we serve and protect, we just do it globally. This is what we are here for - to act as a protective wall in front of those who can´t defend themselves. Forget the romantic nonsense about fighting for your country, no soldier has ever done that.
What do you know about killing?? You know s***!
Quote: u need to have no problem with killing!
You can damn well believe I have a problem with that.
It requires special circumstances before I take a human life.
Quote: be that because u are doing it for your buddies!
Negative! I do it for the reasons I gave above.
Quote: cos your ordered to!
No ****ing way!!! I and only I take that decision.
Quote: cos you just don’t care about the other guy!
I´m not an insensitive psychopath. If there is an alternative solution to neutralize a threat, then it´s the one I chose.
Quote: u need to be able to kill the other guy without a seconded thought and you need to do it without remorse!
If you think you can turn off the brain, then you should not carry a weapon. You need a split second to decide whether it is justifiable to shoot (even if you are fired upon). If you are incapable of feeling remorse then you suffer from antisocial personality disorder. Ask any veteran and they will tell you about the thoughts they have afterwards. Personally I have reflected on every kill that I or my chaps have committed.
You are like a virgin talking about intercourse - You know the technique, but not the feeling.
So Cadet Brit
Take note of this and then I will gladly welcome you to our ranks.

Forget the country bit and every thing else as when the sh*t start to fly yo are looking after your self and your buddies either side of you and hopefully they are doing the same for for you, if you are well trained and have a bit of luck you will come through it and have a few tales to tell. If not you are drinking in the halls of Valhalla for eternity.

yepper, being a soldier it is what you said in the final analysis....
now if we can ever get those pesky merchant marines from stealing the good beer.... or do you folks on your side of the river not have this problem? I'm thinking, regardless of who's military, when it comes to being supplied there are those who take from them who live in the trenches.... on my side of the pond we call them REMF's
(rear echelon muther f**kers) so, what is your phrase for such types?
side note.... how does one get a *by-line* at the bottom of thier post... for instance I like
One Flag --- One Heart --- One Nation
how does one get that to appear at the bottom of each post? Help would be much appreciated.

If you go to Your UserCP (you will find it on the top right beneath your name here) When you are there scroll down to Edit Signature. There can you add One Flag --- One Heart --- One Nation if you like.
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.
