Re: Drugged up insurgents?

Not a problem, Just here to help tell our story. But, definitely communicating to everyone that our hostile forces are drugged up is good Intel. You just have to remember the only ones with comms are the Team leaders, Squad Leaders, Platoon Sgt and Platoon Commander. The pointman (who I was) did not...

Re: Drugged up insurgents?

If you talk you give away the element of surprise. We never called out for needles. We just went to work no matter what the condition was.

Re: Drugged up insurgents?

The best way to take out a drugged up insurgent is to go for their brain housing group. I've seen these men take bullet after bullet and still have the will to fight. But once you put a round in the bridge of their nose. They fall like a sack of jihadi meat. And, that is with a M16A4's caliber. You ...

Re: Drugged up insurgents?

They weren't less lethal because of their drug intake. Infact they were more lethal because of it. They wouldn't need sleep because they are on artificial stuff. Also, I seen them take rounds that would normally kill a man and for these drugged up insurgents they would brush it off and keep going. F...

Re: Combat scenarios and mission objectives

How it was like over there? In my experience it's like playing Russian roulette before breaching every door. Besides that "hope" is your true enemy. I relinquished my hope to survive the battle and instead went in the mind set that I will be dead before the night's end. That being said, p...

Re: Combat scenarios and mission objectives

There was a point during the battle when not only was it house to house but also berm to berm. I think it's a little known fact that our RCT did berm fighting with the help of a donated Israeli D9. I forget the specifics of what was spray painted on the back but, it was something to the effect of &q...

Re: Other USMC wepons and equipment we should see

Our 0331's didn't have the 240 Bravo they had the 240 Golf. It would be interesting to see what attachments the SAW would get. One of my most favorite piece of equipment is the AN/PAS 13. Along with the AN/PVS 17. Although, I was issued the AN/PVS 7 Bravos with a PEQ 2 which wasn't bad either... I s...

Re: …It’s not coming this year is it?

You guys are missing out on a great opportunity to learn from another one our experiences... the experience of "hurry up and wait." Hahaha, but on a more serious note. If Steven Spielberg rushed Saving Private Ryan, would it still be the iconic film of World War II? The obvious answer is n...

Re: Interesting vid, possibly Fallujah

That's 3rd Platoon, Alpha 1/8 near the southern edge of Fallujah. And, when the insurgents start yelling "Takbir Alla Akbar" it's usually followed by an S-vest going off or any other booby trap. That reminds me of the morning of day 4 when one of the insurgents lit the house on fire that w...

Honoring those of us still here.

Hi, I served with the men of Alpha 1/8. I'm wondering if 6DiF will be released as a physical copy? Because, I would like to purchase a copy and have members of my platoon who are still alive to sign it.

Lastly, I want to thank you all again for working diligently on 6DiF.
