    "The feint you're ignoring is the main attack."

    "Items that MUST be used together in combat are NEVER shipped together."

    I always liked the claymores.

    \"This side towards enemy\"

    I wonder how many were placed backwards? I almost always put these out in the dark. The curve of it gave it away if you ask me.

    That one about fuses is definitely true.

    Of course most of the Army PM stuff was in comic book form when I was in.
