  1. Unarmed contractor returns home? I’m glad this made the news, but the story was done on the wrong person. Close calls from 150 yards? Never leaving the wire? Thousands of hired guns are putting rounds down range and Putting foot to ass everyday in service to our country. But I guess that’s why in OUR world were known as ” quiet professionals ” and aren’t authorized to do interviews of any kind. This isn’t meant as a rip guy, just don’t play that “contractor” horn to loud.

    • Get where your coming from Kevin but according to Insurance Companies that Injured Contractors are forced to deal with NO contractors are subjected to danger, even the ones that are blown up.
      And while we’re all impressed that thousands of hired guns are putting rounds down range and foot to ass everyday, plenty of soldiers and contractors alike have been severely injured or killed INSIDE THE WIRE.

      We appreciate that this guy was not too hung up on himself to admit that having mortars lobbed at him from outside the wire could be unsettling. He did not claim to have won the war or save the world for democracy.

      Often those who have not been injured, whether by sheer luck or because they are just so damn good, will come off with an attitude like this.

      This isn’t meant as a rip guy, just don’t play that bad ass contractor horn to loud.

      It takes away from your quiet professionalism.
