This Item Should Never Be Bought Or Sold
So Why Are You Wearing It?
The Hog's Tooth
Information We All Should Know!
WOW...... That was not a very politically correct statement.... Even kind of nasty.
Your right! And I meant every word of it! And hopefully when you are done reading this very short and to the point article you will think the same about folks making money selling them, and the not so great folks that wear them...... Except for the very few among us that actually have the hard earned right to wear it!
The right to wear it?
you talking about?
The “Item” in question is called a “Hogstooth” and from Wikipedia this very important information :
Hog's Tooth is the name given to the 7.62×51mm NATO round presented to a United States Marine upon graduating from the Scout/Sniper school. A 7.62×51mm NATO round is used because that is the round fired by the M40A6, which is the primary rifle used by Marine snipers.
According to military superstition, there is ultimately one round destined to end the life of each person, "the bullet with your name on it." Until that round is fired, the person for which it is intended is invincible. If the sniper carries this round at all times, it can never be fired and the sniper is therefore untouchable.
The term "HOG" is actually an acronym derived from the title "Hunter Of Gunmen", which is the colloquial name for a sniper who killed an enemy sniper in combat. He then has to take a round from the enemy sniper's chamber - that's the one "with his name on it". The bullet is then worn as a necklace and symbolizes the tooth of a real hog, expressing his status as a "Hunter Of Gunmen".
All other members of a scout sniper platoon who have not graduated as a HOG are each considered a "PIG", or "Professionally Instructed Gunman".
So know you know, this should ONLY be worn by those that have Earned It! With maybe the only exception being the Family of a loved one that not only earned the right to wear it, but is no longer with us, and the Family member wears it as a remembrance of the sacrifices their loved one made.
In closing this article I ask one thing of you. Please share this article with your contacts of you agree that the “Average Joe” and others should not only understand why they should not be wearing this, but why others should not, and that if they see someone wearing one, they now know one of two things about the person wearing it. Either they are a Scum Bag Want To Be completely disrespecting those that have earned the right to wear it, or they are one of the very few that have sacrificed to serve and protect you and this country, or they are the family member of that America that sacrificed so much for you and me.
