I like to make fun of Marines, Navy, Airforce and Airborne guy's
As for nothing light about light infantry, AMEN BROTHER!!!!!

However, what I don't understand is you went from engineer to grunt? What, you suffer a head injury? Most folks I know do a tour in the grunts, then we clamor for something else. Anything else, especialy things where we get to ride and stay indoors.

PAUL!!! PAUL!!!! You may have a challenger for the groups mental illness spokesman with this guy!
