Armyin' Is Hard, Yo

"You've got to go through basic training before you slay any dragons, dude or dudette. You have to sit on the bus and talk about shrimp first, Napoleon. It has always been thus.

Eisenhower had to get MacArthur's coffee for a good long time before they let him up on the furniture. And no offense, but you're no Eisenhower. So just try to hold the pin and throw the grenade, not the other way around, and do whatever the fellow with all the stripes and the stentorian voice tells you, and you'll do fine." | The Borderline Sociopathic Blog For Boys

That shoulder patch is 1st Marine Division, not Army.

Both services have it hard, though.

Three cheers for the cargo pilot bouncing off the roadway. It takes presence of mind not to force the nose down or yank the nose up after the bounce, both of which would have made things worse.
