Modern day Anecdotes from soldiers... concerning the sling
Jan 12th, 2020 at 5:31am
 
I've managed to find and compile a few anecdotes together from soldiers who were stationed in Afghanistan.

Here is a quote from a British soldier's experience during the Iraq War:

"Having had some Iraq shepherd kid sling stones through my guard post windows Goliath was an idiot for not ducking IMHO. Not sure how fast they were ,but, really glad none of them connected. Several bags of candy and he went to bully another post Cheesy"

From an American soldier (Not sure if this was during the Iraq war).

"While I was pulling tower security shift in Afghanistan, a kid (who didn't like that I had no candy to give him and his friends) no more than 12 years old slung a small stone and chipped the newly installed bullet-proof window."

Remember to bring Candy, people!

Wow!  Talk about ungrateful and entitled kids... I get why candy is good to carry and a pragmatic solution, but those kids are real jerks!

“My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler

I wish I could get sweets by menacing passers-by with a sling...

Ich hörte von einem alten zuegenhirten. Er warf alte Café Dosen in Luft. Er traf sie im Flug. Diese Geschichte war für mich ein großer Anreiz es selbst zu versuchen.
