Are You supporting the Troops?

I was told to make sure he kept standing up, but something was wrong with his leg. He was injured, and he kept falling to the ground. The sergeant in charge would come and tell me to get him up on his feet, so I'd have to pick him up and put him against the wall. He kept going down. I kept pulling him up and putting him against the wall. My sergeant was upset with me for not making him continue to stand. He picked him up and slammed him against the wall several times. Then he left. When the man went down on the ground again, I noticed blood pouring down from under the sandbag. I let him sit, and when I noticed my sergeant coming again, I would tell him quickly to stand up. Instead of guarding my unit from this detainee, I realized I was guarding the detainee from my unit.

Hum...

Now remind me again why all of the ProWarSatOnTheirFaceCrowd are still in the rear with the beer?

Rather than taking one of those high paying jobs torturing detainees????

Or is that too pointed a question to be asking the Karl Roverian Draft Dodger Kultur???
