I would remember if someone shot at me..

 

I did find myself in a war zone in the Viet Nam war. Collected combat pay and got to mail stuff for free. Thankfully I was stationed on the Carrier USS Bon Homme Richard and the Vietnamese didn't seem inclined to bomb us.

So imagine my surprise when Hillary told her harrowing story of dodging sniper fire. I thought about this a bit. Wouldn't this be imprinted on your memory? Having people shooting at you?

"There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result."
Winston Churchill
