And not that the Woodman needs defending, he can defend himself, but 1) he has an education and a degree and 2) A First Sargent has more of an "education" in what matters than any snotty nose Officer or douche bag like yourself with a degree in underwater basket weaving or even a BA for that mater.
My nephew is also a first sergeant and a tank commander with the 3rd infantry, 69th armored division. Currently on his 5th or 6th tour. He was there when Saddam was taken, no not actually at the scene but serving to protect his country taking out enemy tanks. When here at home he's stationed at Fort Benning training troops. I'll see if I can get pics from my younger brother and more details to post later. I know he has some great videos of shit being blown up.
I applaud you Woody for keeping our country safe, and defending our freedom by being our first line of defense. Most people would shit their pants if told they were being sent into such conditions. My brother couldn't be prouder of his son, but worries as any dad would every time his son is sent back.
Edited: Corrected info from my brother about his son's regiment.
