    This thread has been the best thread in this whole section of the forum, due to the fact that noone was being a gear queer and/or making themselves look too dumb. Lets keep it that way, lest we incur the wrath of Hollywood Marine(and Vor033, our gracious pic supplier) and his posse of death-dealing, amphibious hard chargers.

    Someone's getting a negative counseling right now.

    Somehow in spite of my inherent clumsiness, I never wrecked my 7-Ton, even though I was widely regarded as the worst driver in my company. Whatever. That's what happens when you give grunts licenses. We break stuff and send it back to get fixed so we can break it again. Ooorah.

    ‘War Dog’ Marine Awarded Silver Star

    MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. -- In the chaos and danger of battle, Marines are trained to look out for each other, take control and bring chaos to their enemy.

    Lance Cpl. Daniel Hickey, a machine gunner with 1st platoon, Company G, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, did all these things and helped save lives in Afghanistan in 2008.For his actions, he was awarded a Silver Star during a ceremony at Lance Cpl. Torrey Gray Field, July 16. Hickey demonstrated great heroism during combat when his patrol came under attack by medium machine gun fire and rocket propelled grenades during an ambush.
