my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: The only live grenades you got to toss had a very long, very thorough lead up and lecture about exactly what was going to happen, and what would happen if some privatey-private farked it up. You throw the grenade from a foxhole about waist deep, and there is an instructor in the hole with you. If something goes wrong and you drop the grenade the instructors will 1. jump out of the hole and 2. grab your dumbass and pull you out, in that order. They did not fark around with live explosives.

Our DS said "If you fark this up and drop the grenade , I am only required to make one attempt to save you. If I go to grab you and you pull back, that's it, I'm going over the sandbag wall without you. Now if you suddenly decide you don't want to die, grab on to the back of my jacket because it sure as shait ain't gonna slow me down."

When it came time to toss the live grenade I won't lie, I was pretty damn scared. As soon as it left my hand I was on the ground. I didn't know where it landed and I didn't care since it wasn't in the pit with me. I wanted nothing further to do with that thing once I pulled the pin. I didn't even pop the spoon and *then* throw like you see in the movies.  The spoon went flying with the grenade.

Kit Fister: With grenades, there's generally not a hell of a lot of time to react due to the fuse.  Kicking, throwing, whatever...your best bet is to find a shield, or just try to keep it from taking everyone else out.

This one's for you, Kaiser Bill. Special delivery from Uncle Sam and all the boys in D Company. Yeah, Johnny, Harris, Brooklyn Bob, and Reggie. Yeah, even Reggie. He ain't so stuck up once you get to know him...

Coolfusis: Huskadoodle: He wasen't kicking it away from himself, he was trying to get it away from everyone else.

Yep. The smart thing would be to run away. This dude did the not smart, but goddamn brave thing, and deserves his efforts applauded.

He should have just shielded everyone with his giant brass balls.
