After reading a CNN story about Juba the Sniper, I did a google search and one of the top sites was this esteemed watering hole for some of the best degenerates I have had the privilege of meeting. This was way back in 2005. Their opinions were strong, funny yet firm and like it or not, balanced. As I surpass my second year in this madhouse, I would like to ask, how and when did you decide you liked a little bit of ARRSE in you life? The responses I have got through the open forums and PMs have been fantastic and I have had the virtual opportunity of hearing voices that the rest of the world never has a chance of listening to - until they choose to believe (consciously or unconsciously) that freedom comes with a price. When the final chapters of these tremendous events that we have lived through are written, these are the letters from whom a bygone era will give a voice and encourage the next great generation to do the right thing. Just as letters written from the foxholes and the frontlines of past wars give us a voice and a hope now. ARRSERS, who are you and what made you decide to hang around and raise up your voice above the the thundering din of what is going on around you?
