    I read about this guy a few months ago, and absolutely loved it. I loved it because the bad guys got humiliated so terribly by one man, while being handed their a$$. As well as how determination, and tenacity can win the day if your courage will hold. A true testament to the Gurkha warrior spirit.

    We are all honored that this guy is on our side, fighting against the cowardice of the Talibitches.
    CONFIDENCE: Is that feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.

    Sgt. Pun is only a third-generation Gurkha. His ancestors in the service have been inspiring fear in the Afghans for much longer than that. Usually then, as now, with the aid of the khookree.

    A TYPE OF THE MOST DETERMINED FIGHTERS ON THE INDIAN FRONTIER: A GURKHA SHARPENING HIS KHOOKREE.
    The most dogged fighters of the Indian Army are the little Gurkhas, the Fifth Regiment of which corps is with General Willcocks in the expedition against the Zakka Khels. In addition to the usual arms the Gurkhas carry a peculiar broad-bladed dirk, called the khookree, of which they make terrible use at close quarters. Not only in appearance but in their determined methods of warfare, the Gurkhas are not unlike the Japanese. Kipling has immortalized "Johnny Gurkha."

    Damn, man! That's one balsy little dude right there, don't piss that guy off!

    Beating one to death with his MG's tripod? Sounds like something that'd be in the SEAL manual, right out of an action movie. Glad to see his bravery recognized, I'd like to buy that guy a drink.

    Can you imagine what he would do if he pulled his khukuri?

    I'd buy him as many beers as he wanted.

    Little man, giant spirit!




    No wonder the knives get the glory...but the Nepali heart is where the power lies.
