"Pvt Snuffy you are correct, they are backwards, because you pointed that out you can go enjoy the rest of the day off"
There was an officer lets call him Captain America because he was a pretty squared away officer. One thing he preached to his soldiers was its important to be accurate, if you notice something is wrong point it out so that it can be fixed.
Private Snuffy had been detailed out to another detail and reported back to the unit shortly after lunch. Private Snuffy noticed Captain American name tapes...
Why do they always feel like taking a piece of Sandpaper to the taint?
-They always during PCS Season so Boom Summer Heat
-Everyone and their Mother must attend, which means Outdoor venues only
-The fuckin Speeches I swear upon all the unborn kids that I will ejaculate later tonight, that not a single Speech at any CoC Ceremony in history for any branch has had any meaningful speech that actually...
Since I’m a Finnish male I did my military service as most other males did and I was also assigned to spend the year there as an NCO. But that of course came with a lot of perks during the later part of year.
This story takes place after our last leave, we had been told that the morning after our last leave we would be going to the firing range because the never guys where supposed to do some...
Ft Meade MD, Army Intelligence Agency, circa 1974/75.
I (SP5, Specialist E5) work in the Operations Center for the Intel Agency. Once a month you have to perform duties on behalf of the Agency and not your office. This day, I was selected as were two others to mow the rather large lawn around the HQs.
I had learned that the easiest way to sham on this detail was to go to the stockade and check...
I got to spend a week in the swamps of the Florida panhandle for what we called Block 5 of our schoolhouse. I think I got about two hours of sleep that week because a fellow student got lost during the night navigation final, but otherwise no sleep during this Monday to Friday exercise.
The day before I had been saddled with humping the radio all day instead of switching off like we were supposed...
Before I get anywhere with the story, I need to do something the Canadian Armed Forces calls "christening the ground" (aka provide context). Basic training for CAF officers is called Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) which is made up of two modules. Enlisted personnel who make the switch to the dark side without a certain career course known as PLQ (Primary Leadership Qualification) are...
During the apogee of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, there was a great deal of attention on martial arts training. As 5th platoon commander at my unit (officer billet but I was only a SSgt), I made an effort to take this seriously, unlike many other things that came down from command that I found rather frivolous.
So when we had platoon PT on M-W-F, I crushed my platoon sergeant's hopes...
So this happened at Navy Hospital Camp Lejeune in December 2006.
Me: OP (HR E-1) Idiot In Charge: HN Dumb@$$(E-3) LPO: HM1 (E-6)
I had recently graduated from Navy Hospital Corpsman School and was temporarily assigned to the Navy Hospital on Camp Lejeune to await the start of Field Medical School with a group of about 25.
One of the shop office area was supposed to get a new carpet and...
In the Navy some jobs are fun. Some are less so.
Some jobs it depends on context.
Painting the side is one of those jobs. When you are under the pump and the crew are lazy it's shit but when you have a good team and it's a nice day and there's no rush it can be almost fun.
So after almost two years in a ship with a mediocre crew we were preparing for a three month trip to South East Asia. With...
For some background, my father in law grew up in small town Texas in the 60s/70s, like less than 1000 people small town, and he enlisted into the Army in the 80s. So the world was a little different at that time. Anyway, on to the story.
I just got back from a year in Korea and was talking with my father in law about our, exchanging stories and such. He asks me if I ever got in trouble while I was...
