After reading these experiences I've fully realized the need to get off the first shot and to make it count. Even if you don't die from a gunshot wound you'll, in all likelihood, suffer some rea pain. When it comes to pain I'm a first class CS!

Yeah, makes me think all the time. It's funny how something as simple as 1 degree of angle can change a "grazing wound" into "no more brain matter". If I think about it too hard the whole not existing thing messes with me a bit too much.

When I was hit in the neck with a bullet "fragment" as the Police called it, I remember a bad burning sensation followed by a wave of pain.

When the devildog with 2/2 dropped a grenade at his feet and I tackled him, I remember the burn from being debreeded. They have this iodine brush that they use in a circular motion that has a burning sensation that rivals the onset of the wounds pain.

When a Glock KB'd in my hand last year all I remember is a numbing like when you sleep on your arm wrong.

thankfully never shot but my left arm did get peppered with shrapnel after we were hit with an ied in 03- Everything pulled out was smaller than a BB and were not very deep- It all happened fast and some of what happened afterwards is blurry but I dont really remember it hurting at all at the time. A buddy lost both legs and the truck was engulfed in flames- someone was watching out for me.
-Currently on second tour of duty in Iraq-
-We appreciate the support from home-
