Yeah, I thought he meant not counting the ones before the 19th one?

I was talking about the number that they were on for the excercise, so the 19th would be the correct answer. The 'One, two, three' was just to keep the pace of the movement.

Good job Skinny. Sorry, aircadets4eva.

I haven't seen you around lately, Britt. How's it going?

Anyway, back on topic. Next Question:

(I'll make this one interesting)...

Tell me the ENTIRE "This is my Rifle" prayer. No cheating by using the script. This question is worth 10 Milbucks

Any takers out there for this one?

I'll give people until 1600Z on Wednesday, Sept 8 to answer. After that, I'll post the answer and give another, easier question.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend, it is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.
I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me.
Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemies. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace.
Amen!



I hope this is acceptable. Sometimes it's pretty hard to get every single word from an English movie.

Good job, Bootboy82. I'm going to accept it, even though you missed 2 words. 'before he shoots me *I will*, before God.....' Sometime's it's easy to miss that part. I've done it before.

Anyway....next question to come at 1600Z tomorrow.

Because he doesn't like the Name Laurence, He said "Only and Sailors are called Laurence"
