My adventure began on some yellow footprints in San Diego in 1994.  Round about 1997 I took a detour courtesy of some nice persuasive men from the Department of the Army.  In 2011 I got hurt in Afghanistan...enough to take me out of the game and send me home in mid 2012.

When we put the miniguns on the B-model Hueys we detuned them from 6000 to 4000 rds per minute:

Pretty sure we left them at 6000 rpm on the Cobras, sweet system:

Would the excitement you are referring to have anything to do with a couple of your guys throwing insults at Special Forces soldiers?

In the early 1970's my father did a survey of our family (his and mom's side of the family).  He found that there ere 32 honerable discharges (including his and mine).  His oldest brother served in WWI and had a purple heart from being machine gunned by the Germans while on patrol.

So far I've lost three fellow high school class of 1966 to agent orange cancer.  That's three of thirty three males in my class which is not a good thing.  We have one class of 1966 classmate KIA from Viet Nam who's name is Willet Amendola:  http://www.marzone.com/7thMarines/NC021167.htm

Deployment 1: OIF1 Feb 2003

Deployment 2: OIF2 Feb 2004 (as PSP and heavy weapon instructor) attached to MWSS 274/2nd LAAD

I left the Marines to go Army Ranger in 2006. My plan was get a deployment in Ranger Batt then go to SF selections. Army screws my RIP contract up. The civilian recruiter for the blue to green program didn't have Airborne in contract. I didn't know how it was suppose to look... In hind sight I should have taken more care with that contract. Airborne holdover was full. Senior Drill tells me he can't get me into RIP.... New plan, get to unit put in SF packet. I Get to unit, unit deploying... New plan, do deployment then do selections....

Deployment 3: OIF whatever number Oct 2006 - Dec 2007
Ramadi during the "Awakening"
Unit 1-9 Inf 2nd BCT, 2ID from Ft. Carson (light infantry)

This is where it gets unique. I got hit with an IED on a dismounted raid about 6-8 feet in front of me. I got blown back and had a small concussion, small pieces of shrapnel. Well, my injuries were not bad enough to leave country. I was suffering horrible headaches though from TBI. I was a team leader and squad leader at certain parts so I sucked it up like an infantryman. Finally get home, get an MRI and find I have a brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Neurosurgeon said I was lucky to be alive. I had 5 brain surgeries through 3 different kinds of procedures in 2008. It was a horrible year I barely remember anything between the surgeries and meds I was on.  Anyways, the Army started my med board process and I spent over 2 years in WTU (Warrior Transistion Unit). I got medically retired in 2011.

So that's my service record. I wish I was still in! But I have no say in that. I was not made for civilian life. I can't work in LE or PMC either. Closest thing I can do is collect guns and shoot, lol. Sorry if it's tl;dr! Kind of hard to describe my military road easily.

Welcome to the board, and thank you for your service.  My wife had a stroke resulting from an AVM bleed.  She is left side disabled as a result.  After the stroke, the AVM was obliterated with radiation (Gamma Knife).

Oh man, that's horrible. Did she know she had it before the stroke?  My last surgery/procedure was a gamma knife. The the other two procedures were (3) embolizations and (1) craniotomy. The craniotomy was pretty rough to recover from. The gamma knife made a big 3x3" patch of hair fall off to complete skin. It eventually grew back, but my hair is a lot thinner now.  I'm curious, since I don't know any other gamma knifed people. But did she lose any hair or have hair issues  after?

It eventually grew back, but my hair is a lot thinner now.  I'm curious, since I don't know any other gamma knifed people. But did she lose any hair or have hair issues  after?


No, she didn't lose any hair.  She never knew about the AVM because is was so small and deep that the only way they found it was by doing a cat scan with an iodine contrast.  My wife also had a craniotomy, but it wasn't directly related to this.  With all the brain scans and stuff done after her stroke, the discovered an aneurism in one of her arteries, so the craniotomy was done to clip that.  I was amazed that they did that in 3 hours, and fortunately had few issues.  She had an amazing neurosurgeon.

Oh man, that's horrible. Did she know she had it before the stroke?  My last surgery/procedure was a gamma knife. The the other two procedures were (3) embolizations and (1) craniotomy. The craniotomy was pretty rough to recover from. The gamma knife made a big 3x3" patch of hair fall off to complete skin. It eventually grew back, but my hair is a lot thinner now.  I'm curious, since I don't know any other gamma knifed people. But did she lose any hair or have hair issues  after?

The neurosurgeons said my AVM was "impressive" so I'm guessing that was a doctors way of saying big, lol. My craniotomy was in the 9-10 hour range... But felt like 5 minutes to. But the pain when I woke was the worst I've ever felt. Sounds like your wife couldn't catch a break with brain surgery related stuff. That stuff is just no fun and quite miserable.
