As I reflect upon what this date means, I offer you my version of a triple expresso!

Good guess.
Sea Knight. The Corps version of a Chinook.

Is that what they call the Jolly Green Giants?

CH-46 Sea Knight. The USMC's medium lift helicopter. Twin rotor like the Chinook but smaller. The Chinook is the Army's heavy lift helo.

The Jolly Green Giants are the Air Force's HH3C helicopter. They are the little brother to the CH-53's, known as Super Jolly Green Giants in the A.F. and Sea Stallions in the USMC.

I ate, slept, and pissed at 29 palms. Nice training area. The tower operator at the moving target range is my retirement plan Delta.

If you guys would waste all those Desert Turtles, they wouldn't be endangered, they'd be extinct. Nothing like changing the way you train for war because of some turtle.

Nothing tops the Super Sea Stallion though. Mmmmmmmmmmm, 3-engine goodness.

Seen on a CH-53E patch: "Don't piss me off, I'll lift your house."
