Hi All, I'm a long time viewer, short time member and first time poster, so go easy if I get something wrong.
I have recently read the book Robert's Ridge regarding the Battle of Takur Gahr. In the book, there is a picture of Neil Roberts (below), the SEAL who fell from the Chinook and was killed on the mountaintop - RIP. In the photo, he appears to have a long flat-nosed screwdriver attached with a rubber band to the webbing on his left shoulder. It also looks like there is a spanner of some description beside it.
Can anyone out there who has BTDT tell me why he would need a screwdriver there? Is the rubber band, so he can get to it quickly if necessary
This has been bugging me for a while and I'd be interested in any opinions.
List of screwdriver uses:
Stabe the hell out of the bad guy(s)
Single ****ged fork (for eating those tasty MREs)
Blunt object to hit enemy with
Object to wear on outside of clothing and make people like stealth21 wonder why
(someone else can continue...)
