    “Remember gentlemen, smile, be nice, and be prepared to kill everyone you meet”

    I remember someone wrote that on the wall of the passenger terminal at Basra. Hooah, sir.

    I was there from Jan 2010 to Jan 2011, as a part of the DHHB, 1 ID. Curious to ask, are you a part of the Assassins that were up near Zurbatiyah, or is that another Assassin troop?

      Assassin was the platoon name, we are straight up Attack Troop. I think everyone goes for Assassins if they can. Sadly the new PL is changing the name to Aesier or some other norse name.
