Get Some!

In Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket", the helo door gunner yelled "get some" as he gunned down VC in a rice paddy as his helo flew over. Gunner's have been yelling "get some" ever since. While my preferred target is Taliban/Al-Qaida, this week I was able to shoot at milspec silhouettes, old decommissioned tanks and a broken-down deuce and a half truck. Civilians pay good money to do this at the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot every year. Uncle Sam lets me do it for free.

Until next time: Keep your eye on a shipmate, head on a swivel and stand by to Give'em Hell! Hooah!
