I remember seeing this picture during basic training. The guy who got shot and in the second picture was a Staff Sergeant. Basically, they didn't lie down supressive fire on the enemy before trying to go in drag him to cover. Since that wasn't done, the enemy could clearly get a shot off on the Sergeant. And thus, he became another casualty. So whereas most people see a picture of a marine who was willing to give his life to save a comrade, anyone who knows the story behind this picture sees a marine who, had they followed proper procedure to saving your wounded in the battlefield, did something that was considered dumb and now his squad is a man down.

Very true. Then right after a Corpsman ran out, with an M9 pistol, to try and help, but ran back to cover after the enemy started firing again at him. I don't see how this counts as feels/

You just referred a Staff Sergeant as Sergeant? To my knowledge you are supposed you address a Marine by his or her rank. To prove my point I learned this from a retired First Sergeant who was a DI and a mortar-ma and from a retired Lieutenant Colonel.

I'm in the army, if they're a Sergeant, Staff Sergeant, or Sergeant First Class, we call them all Sergeant. I'm not marines so I don't know all their customs. It varies from branch to branch. So yes, I'm going to call a staff sergeant, sergeant.

He gave his life trying to save his friend

I just noticed that, the large amount of space between the two suggests that he got shot while carrying his comrade, forcing him to drop him and tried to get away before dying too

Consider the situation. This was his friend and his brother. If someone you respected and loved like family has fallen wouldn't you go back for them? It's not a conscious decision. Its something you do in the moment without question because this is someone you love.

Nah, its just these men in the army only have each other to rely on. Their friends are really the only thing keeping them together. Hey, zombie apocalypse comes around yeah, Shane some people. Its just a whole different experience and social structure over there.

lol good luck man. I spent 8 years in the army. Infantry isn't too hard to do, any idiot who can point a rifle can do it, and for Rangers, you better be the best of the best. They don't take average people.

oorah brother. good luck. its not that bad.

All everyone wants to think is that they will be the hero. But in reality. You'll be lying on the floor. Waiting for one.

These guys are posted as examples of what not to do in almost every basic training nation wide.
