This guy sounds like obd, but talking **** about units rather than politics.
Yep. Good old Taniwha Hill.

I remember going shot for shot with your Master Chief over a bottle of Indian Army rum.
For the purposes of national pride I shall say the outcome was a draw...
Damn, that was a good night.

I was there a bit earlier. We left country around March.

We all had not had much to drink in a long time, (4 months of continuous boxes, ground hogs day). The Kiwi beer is a bit more "potent" than U.S. beer, we all got pissed.
Kiwis are good folk, we had a great time that night.
This thread made my day. Thanks guys.
MArine sniper initials D.s. (22 kills)..... 1st force....
Just from his spotters mouth today I grilled him. ....U want his number seal dude?? Don't kill the messenger he specifically stated the short dude with alot of TATOOS from 5th couldnt hit the broad side of a barn.
It seams strange we can acept a seal hitting 20 in an evening but everybody got flabbergasted when i said a Marine did?
Hey if u are in Dam Neck next week ill be more than happy to see u there. Hey provide me your creds ill check u out since pretending to be a SEAL is a national sport. I fun reading how much fun u guys had drinking in Somalia. We never had time for any of that.
I'm gonna get some popcorn for this..
Ok but don't put any damned butter on it, I'll grab a couple of Newcastles...

He sat next to me all day in the gunnys office . He is going to the Advanced Sniper course next month. Ill get his SRB and look at page 3. But I ve served in 2 reserve units with him, and he is the real deal. Tommorrow night i will get him to post..
He aint claiming he shot anyone.. He is 100% adamant in his words.. He is was the spotter. I have to drive to FT Drum with him tommorrow and i will get the entire story..
The idiot that says he never heard of MArines shooting anyone was just being ignorant. I went to sniperschool and Carlos Hathcock was the best. A few years later I learn about CHuck MAHWHINNEY. Hmm I guess some of these dudes arent putting i killed 22 people on their resumes. I wonder why.....daaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh.
An SF sniper was credited with over 40 in one day, in fact 1 night engagement. A-stan..
As far as the for the little annoying strap hangers on this board.. go see a recruiter or do something usefull like.....choke urself.
I wasn't in Somalia either at least that is what America thought.. I will get home and post a pic of me in a RUSSIAN bird in us cammies being flown to Mogadishu.. Im sure the American looking dudes we left all our extra ammo too when we got pulled out we not there either.. hahahah
IF seals where there Recon was too...its part of the MEU package.

How did Gunny Hathcock get involved in this?
And Match is the real deal and he was there. We know this.
But Argyll, TP can shoot. Or at least I figured he could, given his current vocation.
And im worried why???? since i dont do socnet or whatever....... u tell one of your seal buddies who is at Dam Neck to pm me and i will see him next week.

Id love to post more but i gotta work so tune in later...for more harrowing action.
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Well one thing is for sure, 1st force was in somalia.
Mog, you and I apparently know some of the same people. Brian K was in your fast co? You have a pic of him in your CQB training photo. So were you a DM in somalia, or a 8541?
Not that you should take my word for it (although pulling Brian's name out my ass from one of your pics might lend some weight to me being a Marine) but I saw Match in somalia, he is the deal.
