Even training is dangerous; I remember a buddy of mine got distracted and forgot to put on his gloves before repelling out of a helicopter during training. I repelled a few seconds behind him and remember him screaming in pain from a broken leg with blisters on his hands.

The closest you ever got to repelling was using a can of OFF>

Harry Reid blames the sequester, an Obama plan that he signed. Let's see, that's 204 for Fast and Furious, 4 for Benghazi and now 7 more due to his sequester. That boy is a one man population control portal.

More proof that you're a phony--one doesn't 'repel' from a helicopter. If you had ever done so, you'd know it is 'rappelling'.

Well that proves it; I put an “e” where an “a” goes and left off a "p"… LOL, as if anything I post would make you deal with the reality of my honorable military service. You desperately need to cling onto anything that refuses to allow you to accept the truth. Next you'll say that i forgot an "s" on my name.

Keep it up; I enjoy laughing at you silly stupidity.

No, 2 p's
Rapelling is the Frightwing's new adjective for non-legitimate (consensual) rape.

The sequester, a joint venture by Obama and Boehner
and passed in the Congress by a majority of Republicans.

You are a moron.

Unfortunately mortar shells exploding in the tube while not a daily event in the 60's, did happen often.

Blaming this on the sequester as reid did is just political play, I didn't hear him call the last few military aircraft accidents with deaths as caused by the sequester. He's just a posturing pimp playing on a tragic accident.

Condolences to these young Marines families.

Department of Ed creates new six-figure job, while wielding sequester ax.

The Department of Education’s sequester cuts are taking a brutal toll on federally-funded schools on Native American reservations, but the federal agency still found money to create a new six-figure job promoting “Educational Excellence for African-Americans.”

Already torched you on this filthy lie on another thread, you America-hating putz. This one is racist, too, since by "That boy" you clearly mean Obama.

You could use a mortar round yourself...

Misspellings are proof someone is "lying?"

Then that's even more proof that most righties here are liars...:)

No, Professor Idiot, Patty didn't 'misspell' it; he doesn't KNOW the word from experience, meaning he's a liar, much like he can't spell 'corps'. He's a phony.

As stated, that's not "proof." You need to come UP with proof he's "lied" or is a "phony," or stop compulsively slandering a genuine American soldier.

What haters and hypocrites you righties are...
