Anyway, he said that he had buddies in the service and that when I get to Afghanistan to look for the soldiers that have necklaces strewn with ears. Human ****ing ears!?

I didn't really know how to react to this, but WTF? Are there actually soldiers out there collecting the severed ears of insurgents?
Sounds like that guy was watching Universal Soldier... Dolph Lungrin did a most convincing cast as a pscho super soldier..... Dude, I would not take that seriously....
