GRUNTS

-Underwear is entirely optional at all times
-You have shit in the same bag you ate from.
-You put that bag into your Ruck next to your sleeping bag.
-You've shit in a hole more than a porta potty
-Every time you shit, you tell everyone everything about it.
-You go on missions with your fly undone so you can piss while pulling security.


-You have no problem running 5 miles drunk.
-You have no problem maxing a PT Test drunk.
-You have no problems doing a 12-mile foot march drunk.
-You have no problems but drinking problems, and you don't think it’s a problem at all.

-You would fight for a guy you barely know, as long as he's Infantry.
-You'd fight your best friend, even though he's Infantry.

-Monday morning formation should be taped and sent in to the Howard Stern Show.


-You know someone who has done the following:
1. Pissed themselves, shit themselves, puked on themselves. No problems.
2. Killed a Haj. No problems.
3. Played with the head of a dead animal or person, for points. No problems.
4. Killed a case in between COB and last light. No problems.
5. Ran for a few miles on a broken something. No problems.


-You know that work is work and play is play. No-holds-barred with either.
-You pride yourself on getting dirtier than any pogue, and somehow still end up looking better.
-You've done a PT test sick or injured and still scored better than 90% of any support unit.
-You wince when a pogue handles his weapon like a pogue.
-You know pogue dudes hate you because pogue chicks dig you.

-You know heroes.
-You know heroes that don’t care if they're heroes.

-Your buddies know all of your business, tell all of your business and when shit goes south they'll help you handle your business.
-Your squad does "the wave" after calling in close-air support.


-You got stopped in the airport by some fat security guard on the way home from OIF or OEF because your uniform had bomb residue or powder burns on it, and they treated you like a terrorist because of it.
-You've had a uniform taken away because it was so caked with blood and bodily fluids, it was considered biohazardous material.
-Your arms are so chewed up from IV needles (training and live) that you could be mistaken for a heroine addict.

-You use words like Roger in casual conversation.
-You say Roger when Roger could just mean you're having a really bad day.
-You say Roger when Roger could be just welcoming a really bad day.

-You can fall asleep absolutely anywhere.
-Your meals may consist of any of the following: stolen animals, chewing tobacco, hate, cold coffee, dry ramen, warm bottled water, energy drinks and rat-fucked MREs.

-You hear Kuwait, you automatically get the shits,
-You hear Iraq/Afghanistan, you say, fuck it dude, Round Two, Three, Four, whatever.

-You're hunched-over from too many rucks that out-weighed you. You're deaf from demo breaches and hours spent next to a tube. You always seem to be digging dirt out of your ears. You've earned a bad complexion from too much time under greasepaint and sweat-dried-to-salt. Fucked-up joints, compressed spine and fallen arches from too much running and jumping. There are scars behind your ears from carrying logs and litters for PT.
If needed, you would bleed on the flag so the stripes stayed red.

Using everything from knives and bare hands to mortars and machine guns... you're the sleepy-looking, blister-footed, camo-faced, sun-burnt, hungry, filthy, swearing sons-of-bitches that have fought so long to keep the wolves at bay.

Nothing could be as bad as C's 'ham and mothers'. The only thing we had that was close to MREs was ' LURP' rations, and if you were on the move, you ate them dry and drank a canteen of water after.

Ft. Benning is still home of the Infantry. It's just that the Armor school is moving there too.

He's doing the two week MOS Qualification course that is done in several locations in the US.

Yeah no shit. God how I miss it and would love to get back to it. I was forced to go through a medical reclass. I can tell you these carrer support guys are fucking weak. Hell they think I am crazy. What due you expect being 11B for 14 years.

Ham slices were my kryptonite. I actually liked the meatballs and the atomic alpo. I actually broke a tooth on the beef patty once. As a young private I had more than a few SP-4's and E-5's tell me I was F@#$%&G crazy to go Infantry. Got to be 11B.

As a private, I was actually able to convince my team leader that I sharpened my knife with an oatmeal cookie bar.
I had to sharpen e-tools and pioneer sets for the whole company when he found out I was being sarcastic.

Just pay attention, drink plenty of O2, be a team player, keep awake on fire watch, sing your cadences loud and clear, learn to drill properly and don't break any bones. You'll do just fine!

In fact, you'll probably have a blast.

Good luck! (And we expect to see some pics when you can. One of you with a "300 Club PT" trophy and all "expert badges" . . . Yeah. That's sounds good.)
