Reverse bucket list, What’s one thing you won’t do again……… An essay by William Marshall

Rifle Ammunition

My buddy listed his as, “I won’t run out of ammo again.”  

Wow, some of my friends sound militant.  I guess maybe that is because they are.  We are.  I was trained just like they were.  Bayonet’s draw blood, blood makes the grass grow.  Superior firepower.  The beaten zone. Grazing fire.  Those are things that are in my head.  Sectors of fire, LACE reports, range cards, tourniquet etiquette, lift and shift.

I think my reverse bucket list is to never have to think about those things again.  I don’t want to shoot nobody.  My reverse bucket list is to “never worry about ammo again.”
