    After I bled out I walked over and gave the guys in door of building 48 (don't know letters) my kill card. I figured they earned it. I was pretty happy when I found out it was the MAKO guys. If you are gonna get taken down nice to be taken down by a worthy opponent.

    Yea, as soon as we knew you were MAKO, we were like "oh hell yea these dudes are cool!" and while we were murdered in 2 minutes, the adrenaline of being pinned and flanked was awesome. I was actually the guy behind the tall tree shooting people running up to the burm. It was so worth the 2 hours sloshing around in the woods.

    Thanks for the post Zip. Wanted to commend UFS, jdelps18, and tons of UFS for the display of amazing sportsmanship and really great attitudes. Sat standing on M for 2 hours in the killer sun was made up for by the firefights Sunday! Honestly I tend to find myself being critical of command often at ops, "we shoulda pulled troops and hit back hard". Thats why I'm probably best not being in command! At the end of the day AMS did a great job of setting up an OP where command, the teams, and players were left to execute plans and make fun. Other then getting shot in the forehead from 15ft I had a blast!

    I think this section sums things up pretty well. It's bound to happen with all our new community members, but I think it's important to really consider what you are coming away from the event with. When the event is over with and you return home, bragging about a win should be the last thing you do. The stories and experiences you come away with are what's important. One of the best parts of an OP are after it ends, and you hunt down a guy or group you had extended combat situation with, or your teammates you may have linked up with for a few minutes only to witness something amazing. Me for example: Even though CDF lost at RY2, I spent a great deal of the time with a sniper team trading shots with a CoST sniper team on an adjacent rooftop. I made a point of it to find those guys and congratulate them for giving us a hard time. Why? Because they made the event fun for my group when we weren't given any of the higher profile missions. It's player interactions that make these AMS events great. Not the missions, not the glory, sometimes not even the AO, but the people that are putting their all into the experience. It's not the suitcase nukes that make events a blast, and I think it's important for people to stay humble in that respect.
     
    Thanks for the post. Some good stuff there.

    Seriously people, enough. Enough whining about who does what, get your own gear and squads together and focus on making this a great event like always.

    I think any organization, whether military, or business is a reflection of the leadership.
     
    As far as a good time, that was beyond amazing! As well run an OP as you will ever encounter. The staff of AMS should be proud that they provided some 600 people with memories that will be remembered for a lifetime.
     
    How many people get to provide people with memories like that. My boy and I will talk of, and remember this forever. You guys at AMS did this for us. My boy at 13, and I, had the opportunity to go away for the weekend with 14 other guys on our team in a positive non drinking environment. Things like this are lessons and memories of teamwork, and comaraderie that are the building blocks to form him into a young man

    A quick question concerning the trophy bracelets.
     
    As I understood it, if I personally shot someone and was able to retrieve the bracelet from the individual, I had a legitimate Trophy Kill.
     
    The reason I ask, there were members of our team that were KIA, and had the bracelets removed by dead tan soldiers who had not personally shot our guys.
     
    To me this is an example of poor sportsmanship, and defeats the purpose of the Trophy Kill accomplishment.
     
    Could I ask for some clarification as to the legitimacy of these actions.

    Thanks for the reply. No hard feelings, and not that big a deal really. It was left up to the interpretation of the individual, and in my mind I saw it one way. No right or wrong here I guess. Just wanted to bounce it off someone.
     
    I do appreciate another perspective

    Great topic! Ya all the cool tactical gear is pretty neeto, belts, helmets etc... But good boots I believe are the most important piece of gear.
    I run Belleville boots and have been really happy with them. They are a little heavy, but very comfortable and durable. Made in USA, hard to find anything for shoe wear made here.
     
    My boy has a pair of Converse boots that he has worn twice. Lighter weight, composite toe. Curious to see if they are as durable as the Bellevilles cause they are made in China like everything these days....

    I have been using Belleville 390 DES boots for almost a year now and they are great, while they are not water proof they keep my feet nice and ventilated during the summer time. I wear them at work and have to stand on them for about 8-9 hours at a time and my feet do not hurt.

    It is admirable how the core group has banded together in the face of adversity to move forward. It speaks volumes about the core groups dedication, organizational skills, and mutual respect to have moved so quickly.
     
    There is no place for inflated egos, pride run amok, or a me attitude in a cohesive team. When one person is pointing the finger at a united group, it's time for that person to take a long hard look in the mirror. Team...
