Poser in the 10TH.
I have had many surgeries to fix my body. I can show you a scar that is about 1/4 inch wide and is about 10-12 inches long from my ass to the nearly high part of my spine.. (Estimate.)
My surgeries were on my S,L,C spine, and legs. It's been some years now (Since 2003 for the last surgery (Spinal Cord Implants)) and I can gaurantee that if you were hit by an RPG or even a 7.62 going in at an angle you would have a very distinguishable scar.
You know, I have forgotten many things that I was a part of in the Army. Some because I put away for good because of the sheer terror it brings back to me and some I just plain don't remember. I try to but can only give generalities.
One thing I do know is that you never forget that very moment you were hit or hurt in some fashion. You will remember the area you were in and the unit you were with. you will remember the one guy that got you out and put in a safe zone to save your life. He is my hero. I could have died but that one Soldier put me back in the hands of Jesus Christ. I was saved. This will last you a lifetime.
