[QUOTE="Pistol_Pete, post: 143917, member: 2511"] Noobs who are contemplating SOF and happen to be reading my intro - In reference to "out-shooting" my team sergeant above - DON'T GET THE WRONG IDEA like I was swaggering about it. It just explains how my nickname was begrudgingly awarded. And don't take that as a sign of disrespect towards my Team Sergeant. He was an acting Team Sergeant at the time and I may have out-shot him, but I damn sure didn't gloat about it and stayed as humble as I could manage. Nevertheless, always perform to the best of your ability. That's what your team expects including your Team Sergeant. I was also the best free faller on the team at the time as a Noob because I had a lot of free falls prior to arriving at my unit which is how I somehow talked my way onto a HALO team as a Noob straight out of the "Q" course. Doesn't mean I was jack shit though and I sucked in plenty of other areas because it takes YEARS to become a well seasoned Operator. One time I totally screwed up on a HAHO out in Yakima because instead of reading the compass I though I could just navigate by VR sight but instead landed in the wrong place by miles. I caught a lot of shit for that but the experience paid off and saved my life a couple of years later on a night op. Just remember - one "aw shit!" can wipe out ten attaboys. Always give your seniors nothing but the utmost respect - especially your Team Sergeant. Cause if you don't - you're screwed. I guarantee it. [/QUOTE]
