I was driving the Rte. 31 / 68 today heading toward the U.W. Campus on 25th N.E. at about 1000 hrs.
After about 50 18-23 year-old college co-ed nymphettes boarded my Bus, I again put my attention to the road...
Next thing I see is a Concert Truck heading the other direction with a familiar face at the wheel.
Yep. I seen that dude before, and recently, too!
I was going back the other way about 1145 and looked into the site where there were 4 Concert Trucks. I think the familiar face was at the wheel of the one in the middle facing South.

I've seen Tweak at "work" ... if that counts.


I've seen Berserker at work ... in fact, that's how we all found out he was on the board!


Oh, and I've seen Beetle at work ... since we work at the same place.

So you saw me at the mud/water pit huh?









Thanks to the General Contractor, this jobsite is a friggin mess. That cheap bastard wont buy a load of rock or two, and the place is underwater damn near everywhere. Solution? Dig a pit to let the water drain into. Problem with that answer, at 3 feet they hit water.



I missed ya Busman... Sorry.




And to answer the thread, I saw an Arfcommer on the job once. I was at a nice house in Madison Park, and MkIIUltra was working there.




Running that route again tommorrow???

I see PCR-00 and Bosifus on the job every day since we work at the same place. I also see LargeMarge and GodNoStar from time to time in passing since they also work here, but in different departments.

Hey 161, while I have'nt seen Matt45 actually work, I have seen hem eat. If he works half as much as he eats he will retire as a millionaire before he's 40, And thats not counting the times he's been passed out on the toilet in the latrine.

At least I was selected to go. What were you doing again? Oh yeah, desk bitch. And not one of you high speed B Co guys squared me away, didn't even notice until after the 1ST told me. Or you did notice and just buddy fucked me

Yeah, I was a pogue for the last few years. And not even a CAB (that I probably wouldn't wear anyway) since my company was screwed and attached to the those two of the one sore dicks and sent to do glorified, if that, security guard crap. Is my bitterness showing?
Maybe next time ('07, '08, '09 depending on which rumor you listen to :( ) or if I just say to hell with it and volunteer to go with another unit.

But at least I was able to hit Starbucks everyday, along with the pool, American style restaurant, and a Chinese restaurant delivery no less, and live in a 5 bedroom house with our own washer, dryer, AC units in each room, satellite TV (unedited and Fashion TV ROCKS) and oh yeah at the end each villa had it's own DSN line. Plus a decently stocked Commissary if we wnated to use our kitchen to cook. AND I got paid just as much as you did just to sit on my couch and sleep in my queen sized bed! So there!

the only time i've ever seen anyone from ARFCOM... they were drinking.
or they were standing around a fire, smoking and talking about the various merits of having laserbeam eyes or machinegun arms.

by the way, how long does it take to write an OPORD on a stone tablet anyways? did you have to do the Yabba-Dabba-Doo running start on your tanks back then? did you get paid TDY in shells or pelts... or was it beads? commo was probably horns being blared from mountaintops. i bet that your first CO was mentioned in the Old Testament. archeologists found one of your NCOERs in a cave painted on the wall.
what was your first designated training center, Stonehenge? back then, the chain of command was probably determined by who could throw the boulder the furthest.

i'm not gonna hold it against you that you were cav. at least you're admitting that you had a problem, that will make the recovery process a lot easier to endure.

can't wait to meet more of these weirdos in person, maybe we can discuss the merits of machinegun arms and laserbeam eyes while wearing spurs or stetsons. i'm sure you got some cool stories.


oh yeah, my boots don't just sit in the shade of an armchair all day either.
(Ooh, that's gonna leave a mark!) sorry, i am required to give you to give you a hard time about wearing a man badge behind a desk.

We did actually get paid in cash, not some credit bullshit on a plastic card. They gave you a check, and the pay officer (NON CONUS) drew the cash, had payline, and cashed your check.

And yes the guy who drew pay guard was armed with real ammo.

And we werent some homo ass Army of One either.

I think our TIS is about the same isn't it?

And yeah, we were amber anytime we were at one of the gates or in the exclusion zone. And it didn't mean a damn thing. I'm not one of those arty punks that embarrased themselved telling dudes who did recieve their CIB's (especially what was C Co since you did get in the shit more than the rest of the brigade) that they were scared because they heard gunfire or even a blast in the distance. That's just fucking sad really.

I'd be scared too if I was an Army of One.




All bs aside, from the outside looking in, I see some big differences and changes in the .mil. While I dont know if you guys have the comradere or fun off duty that we had, I know your lethality is far greater. Modern warfare has allowed you an advantage never seen before, and a greater chance of survival in combat.

Im truley grateful out of a generation most of us olders have written off as pussies, geeks and dumbasses some of you have risen to be counted as men, to do what needs to be done and stand taller than the rest.

Thank you.

1/161 Infantry Regiment (Mechanised

So by your standards we aren't legs, so right back at you.

But both 161 and I started in the 101st IIRC. Dope on a rope or whatever. Of course he was in only in the five 'oh douche, or three two heaven, but that wasn't his fault.

When I was active there was a lot of camraderie off duty, especially within the platoon. That was a while ago, but it doesn't seem like it's changed from what I've seen living near posts.

In the Guard a lot of units get realy tight. We often see each other between drills, and sometimes become real friends, not just Army buddies. Especially in smaller towns. I haven't run into anybody from my current unit, but then it's based in Kent and people are drawn from all over this region of the state, so we're sort of spread out.

i'm not a leg, and who ever heard of airborne cav anyway? i still don't know what hooah means, i write off anyone that uses the term.

i've been in long enough to remember pay lines, in CONUS and OCONUS assignments.

i had to walk, talk, eat, sleep and shit on red. i didn't have the benefit of living on a FOB. i did have civilian internet (we drove a guy down from Turkey to install it) and i got to share a satellite phone for talking home, that was pretty cool for where i was at.
we had fun, we even made a pool out of an old holding pond at the missile plant i lived at.

1st Batt, 327th... right across the street from Champions, LOL. If you ever needed the cops, look at the parking lot at Champions.

the one unit i was assigned to with the greatest unit history was the 506th. best known from the Stephen Ambrose book Band of Brothers. there is even one company that is allowed to keep its' original designation, Baker Company... everybody else is plain old Bravo Company.

we got to mix our grog in a chalise made from silverware taken from Hitlers final resting place. you probably saw one of the captains at the end of the movie stealing it, it was later recovered and melted down.

i always thought that was pretty cool.
