Several. Many are posted somewhere on CR so I won't bore you with them. Never was a soldier so mine won't come close to yours.

Closest I recall was in Colorado while hiking at 9000' elevation while still used to 1100' air. My thinking got affected and I managed to posit myself at the very end of a spherical shaped cliff where if something wasn't figured out quickly I would be the gravity victim of a 500' fall to railroad tracks immediately below. My ass was up against the heels of my boots with no traction left to push up. It was either straight down or a body roll into a crevasse to my left. I did the latter. Escaped with scrapes, bruises, contusion here and there. Ruined 2 camera lenses. Boo hoo.

At age 2 I was thrown out of a car through the windshield as it rolled off the highway onto the shoulder near railroad tracks in NE Missouri. My Dad didn't survive it. I managed to account Mother put me in a 1-piece uni-body baby suit; otherwise, dirt germs and infection would've taken me also. I don't recall any of it.

I nearly drowned at a swimming pool when I was 13. Scariest moment of my life. I was born extremely premature so my lung capacity is much smaller compared to most people.

When I was small I went to the beach with my family. I walked in the water and walked as far as I could until I stood on my toes.Then the water dragged me in and I didn't know how to swim so I kept splashing my arms around and then I saw my older brother coming to me on his board. I don't remember what happened next because I blacked out. But apparently a lifeguard did mouth to mouth cause when I opened my eyes I wasn't breathing for a moment and saw lots of people surrounding me then I coughed up water. But I don't really think I understood what happened to me that day because I wanted to the back in the water
