Canadian Sniper Quits Military
Sunday, August 21, 2005 3:16 AM
An Edmonton Sniper who twice made headlines in Afghanistan has quit the Canadian Military.
Master Corporal Aaron Perry had been sent home from Afghanistan in disgrace.
Perry made headlines after he set a world record when he shot an al-Qaida fighter from two-thousand-430 metres away.
Perry was later accused of discreditable conduct for allegedly cutting the finger off the corpse of an al-Qaida fighter, defecating on another and setting up a trophy photo of a dead Taliban fighter.
Perry says he quit after feeling abandoned by the military.
He served for 13 years.
Ugh, if he thinks he was feeling abandoned after all that crap I'm glad the fella's gone. Goodjob for supporting and doing your dutie, but otherwise he loses all respect for all that shit.
This isn't vietnam where collecting ears was the thing, you'd think you'd be a little different some decades later. I see things on the battlefield never change. Takeing a finger just goes beyond that, it's disrespectful to the lowest denominator. But that's just me, sorry for venting.
