Why don't you fill us in on why YOU think he's no longer in the military. Rob was an excellent soldier and a good friend.

My understanding was that he took trophies from the Taliban he shot. I heard this from NIS officers at the time he left the military.

The NIS officers investigated the alleged trophy taking based on an off hand remark from an unidentified soldier and came up with ZERO proof. They even took the suspects knife, who wasn't Rob, and tested it for DNA which came back negative. Unsubstantiated rumours, plus a DND Command structure that was still in full "we don't kill we're peacekeepers" mode. Our snipers were treated like pariahs by the upper echelon of DND and because of this 3 of the 5 snipers are out of the Forces. The same 5 snipers that were praised highly by the US command in Kandahar were treated like shit by our own command.

The NIS officers lied to you if they stated Rob toke trophies, but that doesn't really surprise me. :roll:

The US military would not want us to have newer equipment because it would show how much better soldiers we are compared to them!!

Seeing that he's now a constable, you'd think that any truth to those type of 'rumours' would have kept him off of any police force. Shows their strength right there.

This was my understanding as well. It seemed to me that they were victims of dick-envy by over zealous desk warmers. Sometimes above average performance or 'getting noticed' just sets up a unit or it's members for abuse.

but whatever.
