Hey Gang-Back in a local place for the time as I’ve been a bit off the grid doing Marine stuff and descent chow let alone the internet was a rarity but now the Boys are Back in Town for a bit. Few snakes, lots of badguys your Marines continue to do great things and impress me every day. Our economy and country may be coming apart but your Marine Corps is strong as are the warriors that make it up.
The art of sharing a “head” (toilet) with a couple hundred fellow warriors especially when it’s a port a john is always an experience. Even more so when they don’t get emptied. What you don’t like the food? Ha! You obviously aren’t hungry enough yet. It’s amazing what you will actually eat when you are no shit hungry. Sleep has been a crutch and cigars, chocolate have been proven once again to be a steady food group. Both my showers over the past month have been excellent but running hot water is a very nice thing to have. Yes, I’ve taken several hot showers in one day just cause I could.
Is your week kicking your ass? Well Cmon sally suck it up and know things could be a lot worse. You could be living in a mud hut in Southern Afg with no water, no coffee pot that you visit first thing in the morning and no air conditioner. Feel hot now? Here throw on some of this nice body armour and show me how tough you are when the bad guys start shooting at you and you have to run 100yrds to the nearest cover. Oh ya, take this load of ammo with you. Ya I know its heavy but when your spine goes numb it won’t seem that heavy anymore.
You probably aren’t wearing any sapi plates and Monday is over so put on your big boy/girl pants and get tough. When you think boo hoo I don’t feel like going to work etc, think about your warriors out there day after day with no weekends kicking ass! If they can do it I think you can get through your week and be a contribution to society. I know your warriors are making a contribution!
Time for a CGar!
