for what? trade
Yes, but some unit commanders keep that shit under lock and key.
It just deppends, some CO's will say "nah someone (meaning joe) will get hurt" or "we don't need that stuff". When I was on my first deployment in the Sniper section we had to claymores per team and 2 frags per person. I went to a line company mid deployment and was told I could not have any frags and they took my smoke b/c SL's only needed smoke. My last deployment we did not have anything other then primary weapons and combat load ammo... Nothing else.
Gay leadership! Not saying that was the case with these guys.
That one weapon could have turned the battle for that OP with ease.
Any commander that has that as policy should be removed from command, regardless of position.
They are fucking holding the low land....what the hell is up with that? Damn stupid if you ask me 6 guys up top how about every swinging dick
Our policy has been to control the lines of communication, not the terrain. We concentrate our forces around villages, roads, and blue lines, not the highest portion on the map.
