    6 holes in left leg and 3 in right from shrapnel > Nicaragua
    Scars from repair of torn left achilles tendon > Alaska
    Left index finger knuckle now hi-tech plastics > Iraq
    2 #4 Shotgun pellets still in left hand > Somalia
    Scar on right shoulder where chunk of concrete was removed > Somalia
    Several smashed in and now deformed ribs on left side > Somalia
    And...
    Trigger finger, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, labral tear, torn rotor, nerve damage to several fingers and toes > Just from my old age... almost 38!

    Wonder why no one wants to go on vacation with me...

    I'm not worthy but my main visible scars are

    before 17 - Elbows, knee, shins: typicall stupid kid stuff
    17 - Scalp, Left: Stitches for gash caused by a chair
    19 - Chin: Stitches for minor gash after slipping on a wet floor and landing on the chin
    20 - Ankle, Right: Surgery, exploratory on ligament inflamation and scarring, 1 titanium screw
    25 - Palms, Both: only part not covered during a fall on tarmac
    26 - Knee, Left: ACL reconstruction after running around on a detached ACL for about 2 months, 1 titanium screw, 1 titanium pin, new ACL

    Like I said not as bad but the ankle and knee are very prominent.

    All I have is a scar from playing lazer tag...you don't want to know.

    There was an incident where I was taking out a blow down with a chainsaw that to this day I don't know how it was that nobody was killed much less walked away unscathed.

    Yea... saw that on your list. I think my arms hurt more from the crutching then anything else! But that's 'cause I'm trying to ignore the road ahead :wink:
