I know the ones that were killed Sunday were American and didn’t have the same training.
But, weren’t the Sikhs at one time one of the more feared Indian Warriors? I seem to recall they wore double swords. Real Bad asses. They even had their own martial arts, Sanatan Shastarvidiya.
I have trouble keeping the Gurkha and Sikhs separate in my mind. Both are from India? The Gurkha still train and continue their warrior tradition.
As shock troops how were the Gurkha and Sikhs deployed? Were they given different functions?
