You'd think that, after serving two tours in Afghanistan, the marine in this video would be prepared for something as relatively harmless as a giant slingshot amusement park ride. Instead, the soldier, whose name is Adam, shrieks and howls like a little girl as he's catapulted into the air along with a friend.

To make matters worse, the operator of the ride deprives Adam of a proper countdown, so he has no time to prepare before hurtling skyward. For shame! Is that any way to treat one of our nation's heroes?
