Re: First day of SAR leads to the E.R.
Dang, I was going to ask for your jeans!! Just kidding. 1st day, 5 stiches, wow, you would so earn the nickname "bump". Heal quickly and don't let it turn you off from SAR.
Oh and don't feel bad, I got the nickname "Turtle" after being slung back by a vine during my SARtech II exam catching on my heavy pack and laying on my back winded like a struggling turtle. Infront of all my other unit and other guest units taking their land nav part of the test. 5 years plus later I still carry the nick name frequently.
