Pick up a weapon and charge enemy fortifications? !?! That hasn't happened since the frigging civil war, well maybe hamburger hill or the likes in Vietnam but really? Modern combat is nothing like past conflicts especially if youre gonna compare them to theaters of conflict in WWII. Yes I come from a long long line of military service (I'm the first son who hasn't enlisted) but yeah know what everyone in my family told me to do. "DO NOT subject yourself to that horror!" May the people who CHOOSE to serve be honored and watched over for their families!
then what happened in Fallujah?
lots of door to door, & hand to hand combat went on there...
or how about Afghanistan
when troops were dropped right on top of a Taliban stronghold in the mountains..
