met the USMC Commandant at the PX today
he d'bo'd like three LTs that tried to come up and talk to him, he was checking out Valentines day cards hahah
I met Gen. Wesley Clark when he came up my station at a medical facility. He was super chill.
My OIC (A Maj.) was scared $hitless. He was all like "Can YOU take care of him?!?!" I was like, "I got this, boss."
Did he get anything at the pharmacy? If so what was it? Viagra?
You know I can't answer that!
My dad went to King's Point, missed out on Annapolis by like 2 points on the entrance test.
An Admiral showed up when he was fully in the Navy to talk to all the new officers (this is like 1962 in San Diego) and he sees my dad at attention, they briefly chat (the "where are you from?" sorta shit) and then goes, "take a seat son" so my dad sits.
the Lts on either side of him stare at him in shock "You sat down? WITH AN ADMIRAL PRESENT?!"
"Well, he fucking told me to... does going to Annapolis make you all lose your ability to think for yourselves and just suck dick?"
I really wish my dad would tell me more about his time in as it seems like he was a unique guy, especially for a "Gold Bar" essentially but it was Vietnam, so I kinda get WHY he doesn't want to mentally go back there.
FUCKING FOUND MY FAVORITE CLIP:
"When the Judge said the Marines would be a superior alternative to jail, I shoulda just shut up and done my time"
When I first started dating my wife, my father-in-law asked me if that was how Marines really acted. I just laughed and walked away.
All my friends that served said that show is an almost perfect representation of what life is like... right down to saying roll out then sitting for 4 hours waiting for the single translator to get rounded up
Just wanted to stop by and say thank you to you guys. I love and respect you all. My “brother” is an Mp in the army. Wanna give a huge shout out to @The Higher Power @Minotauro Rex and @J Danger
I’m going to be an E-7 in July for the Air Force. I’ll sew it on at my 11 year mark. They got me until I can retire with Chief Master Sgt (E-9) pay.
Welcome to the SNCO fold!

Hey man, thanks!
I’m goimg to apply to be a first sgt probably first quarter 2019.
No, confusing maroon and red is nothing like the pronunciation of tomato.
Airborne units wear maroon berets. It makes them feel special over us "legs."
Ha, ha, saw the Ranger Handbook come out during 'danger close'. That little handbook is a gold mine. Some guys kept it in a Ziploc bag, others had all the pages laminated. Small: 6" x 4" x 1"
You wanna be a Shirt!!??! Good on you brother! They wanted me to go T.I., but I was pharmacy through and through. You're a man and a half to go Shirt!
The entire army needs to feel special, black berets, cab, there's a push for an eab, the amount of patches and flair is ridiculous.
Marines got it right, name rank - maybe wings and dive bubble, no other bullshit.
Yeah I think I would be really good at it. I’m an aircraft maintenance guy sitting in the office as the section chief that runs night shift so I’m probably already doing about 50% of the first sgts job as is.
