The Story Of How A U.S Ranger Got A Confirmed Kill With A Spoon
There's an awful lot of praise to give to anyone who risks their lives for their country. You can't deny their dedication to the what they do, and that has never been truer for this next guy.
Basically, an unnamed American ranger has got a confirmed kill with a spoon.
Report: Army Ranger Gets Confirmed Kill With MRE Spoon :point_left: - A first hand report from the veteran run website Grunt Stuff, who says they have already verified the claims with multiple witnesses, tells the story of an #ArmyRanger who got a confirmed terrorist kill with nothing but his MRE spoon at the Haditha Dam in Iraq - They came up to a building they were ordered to clear, and inside 3-5 bad guys lay waiting for the stack to come through the door. As the Rangers entered the room they managed to kill all but one of the fighters. In the smoke and chaos of battle one of the rangers realized a bad guy was still alive and was attempting to pull the pin on a grenade - Only being a few feet away the ranger rushed him and engaged into hand to hand combat. As they wrestle on the ground the #Ranger is unable to pull his knife because his kit kept getting in the way. The only thing he had at the ready was a MRE spoon he had stashed in the MOLLE of his kit. He grabbed the spoon and prison shanked that son of a bitch in the neck until he was dead - - #rltw #military #militarybadassery #igmilitia

According to Grunt Stuff, a small group of U.S rangers were given the task of clearing a building in Iraq, which, unbeknownst to them, contained four hostiles.
Upon entering the building the group were greeted by gunfire, which they returned. They killed three of the four, but the one survivor was wounded on the floor attempting to set off a grenade.
The closest man to him dived on him and they began to wrestle and have some hand-to-hand combat. He couldn't quite make it to any of his weapons, so you know what he did? He grabbed a fucking spoon.
Taking his MRE spoon he repeatedly stabbed the hostile in the neck until he died.
How he managed it, I don't know. But he's definitely now made it to another level of hero.
