AFTER 2 Straffing runs, Coalition Chevrons, Red Smoke and a Union Flag, the pilot still didn't recognise that the Vehicles were british. I Thought you couldn't fly if you had Impaired Vision
I am that, I normally stay on www.military.com with my fellow soldiers. But this link was posted and I felt I should express my sympathies. My screen name is the same on mil.com and you can ask anyone about me. I have also provided a link to my simple web page if that would provide you any additional information.11B3VB4, if you are indeed an American soldier
I can't... I wasn't there and the reports are sketchy. From what I have read it sounds like the pilot made a serious error in judgment, if not criminal error. I don't think all pilots are hotshots, but I don't know that many pilots to form an accurate judgment of them as a whole.how would you respond to the allegation that American military are trigger happy?
I am expressing the sadness and frustration with this incident, any screw up by any military irritates me to no extent. Stupid mistakes (as this appears to be) make it that much worse. I'm not here to explain the incident, as I was not a flyer. But apologies should have been forwarded immediately regardless of the situation.Yes mate, if you are what you say you are, it took a pair of balls to come on here and post something like that.
I can't speak for others, myself I've become a bit cold over the years. Not many things do I feel require apologies, as it is war. This thought, is an instance when it should have been immediate and heart felt.Is that the common feeling amongst your men or are they as blasé as usual.
11B3VB4: I'll agree that for any US serviceman to show his head here takes balls, and I salute you for taking the time to pen kind sentiments.
You will find that feelings are running high on the issue, don't take it personally.
