Contract door gunner job huh?

Well, if ya get the job watch you ass bro. Just got back from over there and those Suns-a-bitches get smarter every time I go over. IM me if you need any tips or tricks on the GAU17 or GAU2 as we call it in the AF. Attended a class at Dillon this summer and learned some cool shit.

doesn't work... it's been tried, many times. the play head vibrate to much. You'd need a remote camera this the recording device separate. I'm going to try my helmet camera on the next gun run.

So do people who man those gun positions actually shout "get some"?


Sorry, couldn't help it.

What qualifications did you need?

You'll be flying armed security in support of cut and burn ops. Just keep in mind that if you have to shoot someone, you will most likely get to go home early.

I heard there was a vid of some Iraqis getting wasted back in the first one. A general said that "if that video was released to the public, there would be no more war."

I want a copy

The DOORGUNNER laughs and yells as he fires
his
M-60 machine gun.

We see Vietnamese below running and falling.


DOORGUNNER
Get some ... get some ... get some ... get
some ... yeah ... yeah ... get some ... get
some.

After a while the
DOORGUNNER stops firing and
grins at JOKER.

DOORGUNNER

(shouting to be heard)
Anyone who runs is a V.C. Anyone who

stands still is a well-disciplined V.C.
(laughs)
You
guys oughtta do a story about me
sometime.

JOKER

Why should we do a story about you?

DOORGUNNER
'Cause I'm so fucking good! That ain't no
shit neither. I've done got me one hundred
and fifty-seven dead gooks killed. And fifty
water buffaloes, too. Them're all certified.

RAFTERMAN gags.


JOKER
Any women or children?

DOORGUNNER
Sometimes.


JOKER
How can you shoot women and children?

RAFTERMAN gags.


DOORGUNNER
Easy. You just don't lead 'em so much.

(laughs)
Ain't war hell?

No big secret. Just company policy for your safety if you kill a local. Better to be home in the states if the Afghans decide to have a trial. There is also the potential threat of reprisals.

ETA: Red highlighting to emphasis the operative word. Returning fire is one thing, the other changes the situation dramatically.
