I can't believe people think this says anything about the state of the military. Do you know how many highly intelligent people do shit like this on occasion? It happens.

Agreed with #26. #13- Just because I person messed up doesn't mean that all moments are like that. Unless you are fighting over there, than you really can't talk because you don't have actual experience of what's going on.

oh christ, settle down. they're normal people. you haven't ever lost something just to find it in front of your face? This has no impact on "the state of our soldiers." And guess what, as I used to be in the navy, I can tell you that we get paid a flat rate every day. you can either pay him to look for his gps, or pay him to sit and play cards. so anyway, settle down.

@ #39: 42. Seriously? No one thought to ask the man to check his pockets, etc. before searching? This happens in my life all the time so I now frisk before going on the hunt.

Ohhh, this happened to me too at Fort Polk. Some asshole lost a detnation cord and we had to spend three extra days in the field after a 40 day field training exercise. Those extra three days after you really expected to go home and take a much needed shower does feel like your life has been fucked.

couldn't they just look on their gps linked net thing and find it? unless they don't have those yet or it was off though... yeah that really sucks sorry that that happened to you.

how about you STFU or get a c*nt punt if you aren't even in the service. you wouldn't want someone talking about you if they don't know a thing about you or your life 13, 15. 52 he is in Georgia training for war dipstick. besides there are some amenities as computers for those that defend. 57 so correct, PCC's and PCI's. 12 just STFU. the best for last.

IMAGINARY FOE, yeah your just that. you use the term wanker so you must be of British/ crown. if so, the current state of things occurred due to the empires forced ruling and meddling in that semi autonomous region. personally, I believe you raghead loving Brits should be all there and resolving this problem. not Americans.

My unit always had us check our shit before we went on the hunt for any high value items. We also avoided giving them to retards... But really though, it's good you found it, you don't want to go through the headache if you didn't... We had someone lose thier DAGR on a mission after an IED hit. We had to search all over for that bitch.

Seouldier, I have no idea what you're talking about with meddling empires and the butt hurt thing. Most of my friends who joined the military did it for the various benefits they would get, not to valiantly defend the world from "ragheads" or anyone else. I'm not saying it lessens the sacrifices they've made but they are more clueless - and angry - than I about why they are risking their lives. However, they do all agree they are not doing it for me which is a relief because I wouldn't want them to.

26 wins and @52: Read where this was posted from. GEORGIA. Even if you didn't read that, do you know anywhere the U.S is fighting a war at where there are chest-high swamps and 32 degree weather? Also, in case you don't know, fighting a war is generally long periods of boredom punctuated by breif, intense periods of fighting. Soldiers have enough time to post an FML every now and then.

@96- Being in the military doesn't put you in some elite class of better people. While we (or I, at least) appreciate your services, we will still laugh at you when you act stupid. :)

Wow, absolutely hilarious. Let me help here for a second, perhaps put things into context. As a Sergeant of Marines I pulled this often; it's classic "two birds, one stone" leadership. 1. Everyone knows that we can't hit people anymore, right?? And you know that we can't force a squad/fireteam into a freezing ass swamp because they are being sh1th3ads right?( These are both career Enders, and are considered hazing). Solution??: take a piece of very important gear, or tool ( never weapon or explosive) from the guy who REALLY needs a lesson, then make the squad/ fireteam go through he77 and highwater to find it. put it back with that person, in a jacket pocket perhaps. or vest that is put down out of eyesight. everyone learns some discipline, and sh1thead will swear up and down how he looked in the vest ten times as the rest of the squad kicks his a&$. Op will understand when he puts on some rank and has to be a leader someday.

Have you ever done a month of patrolling? That shit becomes second nature, and your gear like an extension to you, but if you never use it, its like out of sight out of mind... i could see this happening, place it somewhere other than usual and then at the end of all the training, when you go to turn it in you forget where it was... i got through customs with a full combat load of ammo...

Swamp water would not freeze because: water has a freezing point of 32 degrees F; 0 degrees C. When water us mixed with salt, the freezing point is lowered. When water is mixed with things you can naturally find, the freezing point also decreases. That is why swamp water wouldn't freeze at 0 degrees C.

OP was in a swamp, swamp water is typically full of stuff, the more things in the water that are saturated into it, the lower the freezing point is, an example from earlier would be salt water, won't freeze at 32F. Your pond being fresh water will freeze much closer to 32F

A GPS is a small, lightweight device that you don't keep in your hand, and is likely not tethered to you. Meanwhile, a rifle is a 9 pound, massive, piece of kit that is always in your hands, and may actually be tethered to your body.
