Yes, I Might Just Beat You to Death w/ Your Own Machine Gun

I've seen this floating around and maybe we've run it here, but it's a classic like Raiders of the Lost Ark. You can watch it over and over again, without ever getting bored.

From Cpl. Clifford Wooldridge's Navy Cross citation:

As he crouched back behind the wall to reload, he saw the barrel of an enemy machine gun appear from around the wall. Without hesitation, he dropped his empty weapon and seized the machine gun barrel. He overwhelmed the enemy fighter in hand-to-hand combat, killing him with several blows to the head with the enemy’s own machine gun.
Yes, we are that good.

More here.

1 Some stories just make me happy. Who has time for hate when you are busy killing? Really. Cheers and keep up the good work. Your mom appreciates your efforts, as do many of us.

Come back alive, we need more neighbors like yourself. I might even share my scarce ammo with you. Maybe. :)

4 Greetings:

I'm afraid we have a bit of a disagreement hereabouts. My personal favorite was about a soldier in Viet Nam who beat an NVA-type to death with a hand grenade.

6 THIS is the guy (or someone very like him) we want to be writing our ROEs. I pray this is the spirit our armed forces continue to exhibit.

7 @1: Doom, some people need ammo to even the score. Some, like Cpl. Clifford Wooldridge, don't. I am thankful we have men like him to defend us from murderous cowards like the Taliban.

8 Gork,

You are silly. I need ammo no more than he does. I just like it. Damned kids.
