Question: Regardless of the Major's interference, what is the ideal way for a sniper to take out two targets in that situation with a bolt-action 7.62 sniper rifle?
Chosen answer: Strange as it may sound humans take a long time to process the unknown. Once a sniper has patterned the subjects he will take the shot on the one furthest away. Hearing glass break and his friend thud to the floor. The remaining subject will take at least 4 seconds to comprehend what just happened. He will obsever, decypher, and react. Each one of those takes at least a second and a half, maybe a little less. By the time the second guy has comprehended what is going on the second bullet is already hitting its target. In the history of snipers this has been done.
Question: Who is the guy getting on the bus yelling "Semper Fi" at the end of the movie?
Chosen answer: He was just an old former Marine (I would assume a Vietnam vet) that wanted to congratulate the Marines, and give them a better welcome home than the Vietnam vets ever got.
Question: What is "Jody" a reference to?
Chosen answer: "Jody" is a generic term for any man who steals your girl while you are off in the military. Also referred to as "Sancho" by Hispanic troops.
Question: What does Fowler signal when the truck full of marines pass a car with a woman with a veil in it?
Chosen answer: Its a crude gesture meaning "I want to perform oral sex on you."
Tora! Tora! Tora!
