11XHooah Posted June 9, 2005 Share Posted June 9, 2005 Not sure if this would be considered a spamming topic. If it is, sorry. The question is this: What is the signifigance of your name/sig/avatar selection on these forums. I thought this would be a good way for us to find out a little more about other users on these boards. I'll start: I chose the name 11XHooah because I'm enlisted with an 11X (Infantry) contract in the U.S. Army, and I try to be as hooah as possible (always doing my best, putting in 100% and then some into everything I do, as well as being highly motivated). My reasons for the military avatar are pretty self explanatory. As for my sig, my favorite quote is in there, and it's by John Stewart Mill. It holds a lot of wisdom and truth in it. As for the other two, the one by SGT. Struecker is from the book Black Hawk Down, and the other was said by a friend of mine. War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. --John Stewart Mill-- "Victory was for those willing to fight and die. Intellectuals could theorize until they sucked their thumbs right off their hands, but in the real world, power still flowed from the barrel of a gun.....you could send in your bleeding-heart do-gooders, you could hold hands and pray and sing hootenanny songs and invoke the great gods CNN and BBC, but the only way to finally open the roads to the big-eyed babies was to show up with more guns." --Black Hawk Down-- MySpace: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea...iendid=44500195 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
