We will always need a place to vent the hate. Let the topic continue.

Go Navy!

Yeah, the Air Farce sucked too...

War, War is hell. I had to spend my time in "Conflict" in a 4 Star Hotel, drinking beer and working 8 hours a day while making just $125 a day per diem! I mean, come on...Who works 8 hours a day!

Grammatical errors aside, I'm pretty sure from the context that he was rubbing our noses in the fact that we all signed on the wrong dotted line.

It was a boring "Conflict." We never actually declared war on Serbia or whoever we were blowing up at the time.

Either way, we made up for it by drinking the Italians out of alcohol and stealing all of their daughters away.

(And Yes, my grammar sucks)

There's always been two. Didn't you ever wonder how he got into his rack so fast from wherever he was on the ship? That's because one of them was always there.

He's 6 inches shorter and has blonde hair. Yeah, we aren't identical.

Being able to get to my rack WAS a super power.

Not really a story of pain, but yesterday we got a new RC Div LCPO. None other than ETCS (SW/SS) Tim Euman. I don't know how he was after I left, but he was always a decent sort to me, so it's a welcome change to how things have been going on the mighty GW.
