Panicing and throwing the pin is a mistake you'll only make once and it will cause me to kick your ass the entire way to heaven.

I was nearly killed in entry level training by a grenade that the Marine in the grenade pit threw. It went nearly straight up in the air, hit the front of my pit and landed right next 3 feet away from me. I didn't panic and shielded myself behind the short 2 ft tall concrete wall between the grenade and I. I was amazed that I didn't recieve any shrapnel. It was luck and sharp and quick rational thinking that helped me.
