Not normally one for starting a Walt thread, maybe the story does have some truth but I'm curious. Can 21 tours really be done in an Army career? Say 2 - 6 month tours. One of my mates posted this on his faceache today... 'Today I got chatting to a man in a wheelchair in McDonalds. He was a former medic paratrooper who had been on 21 tours of duty across the world yet had only fired his gun in Kosovo. He ended up in a wheelchair, not because of his job but because of a head-on collision with a drunk driver. Now he teaches medics in the paras. He laughed and joked about everything, including the accident, never once appearing negative about what had happened. He said, 'The biggest disability in this world? Attitude. Have the right attitude and everything is easy.' Total Legend.' Fantastic story if true.
