We found a Pathfinder FM in an old locker and had our office guy give it to a new private telling him he had to learn the book because he was slotted to be his squad's pathfinder and that it was no longer a school, it was just in house training so we'd ask him questions that weren't even in the book and smoke the **** out of him, we told him it was a sensitive item then we'd steal it from him and smoke him for it.... we also got him to learn his 9-line medivac and how to do a 7-step inverted Y LZ so it wasn't all just hazing, he did get a little out of it besides extra PT.

When we were doing our drivers course a couple years ago we got a couple guys to stand behind the HUMVEEs with plastic bags trying to collect exhaust samples, then we had them put their ear to it thumping, looking for soft spots in the armor to mark with 100mph tape.

Go check with the DSes for a box of ball tabs.....

Ask the TM's (and STG's) where to pick up the air slugs for the MS's, (Now CS's).

Had a midshipmen run around with a chit to crank the mast before we got to the Coronado bridge. It was working fine until WEPs stopped it . . . kill-joy

Sent a BM to the MS's to get a "killer tomato" for the GM's

Had an OS ask the OOD where to stand for the "Rat-guard"

Had a STGSN don the SAR rescue gear for a Dome-Dive in the Nassco Dry Dock, (funny to watch).

Sent a YN to the CDO for get some flight-quarters for the Air-Det.

Sent a JO to get some deck wash for his wash khakis, (that was one pissed JO when he came back, lol)

Crow tacking and blood pinning was frowned on in my era but still done a little bit. As I am on the larger side the crow tackers only tried it one or two times.

I never fell for that dumb sound powered phone batteries bit or the mail buoy.

I only have a small amount or none for some of the calibers, and some guns have not been shot for 5-7years. Also the guns I have the most of .22lr(30ish) and 9x19(20ish) are cheap to feed.

I have a feeling in the military of 2008 such practices are very frowned upon I think. By the 1990's it mainly (oficially) was a no no already.

I was in radar maintenance in the 80's, and we sent FNGs for a "gallon of SIF paint."

April fool's day was always good fun at LAAFB. When I was an Exec, I gave a message to a 2LT to return a phone call to "Mr. Lion"...

...I gave him the number of the animal manager for the L.A. Zoo.

Although some one has already mention de keys to the plane, I had a jeep assigned just as I was leaving to do an engine run on a F4. I was in hurry so I sent him off so he wouldnt get in the way for the keys. Got the run done, he was standing there. Told me the NCOIC wanted to see me. 2 weekend duties, and 2 weekend flightline fireguard duties made me see the error of my ways.

The only one I evergot tagged with was. as a Midshipman, sound-powered telephone batteries. Made it to the reactor control room from the Control Room on an SSN, and realized it as I was blurting out the request.

I did participate in sending searchers on to other people for the various items they were seeking ...

Back on the John C Stennis (w00t Chief!) we were getting ready to pull into Hawaii I sent one of the booter mess cranks to the pecker checkers for Channel Fever shots. I called ahead to HM1 of course and he had the biggest needle waiting for the poor FSA. The guy ran away LOL.

The new guys would get shown the "Voice Activated Light-All Unit". We had a guy climb in and hide inside and when he heard "Light-All ON" he would flip the switch and the light all would start. When he heard "Light-All OFF" he would flip it off. When the new guy couldn't get it to work later on, he would come back saying that the Light-All was busted.

We used to send guys for Prop wash, 100ft of flightline, 10 gallons of Sailboat fuel.

I can't remember what we called it, but we made up a signoff sheet with ALL the Section heads names on it. The NEWB would spend the better part of a day going all over base trying to get signatures. Everyone was in on it (except the newb of course). Good way for the Newbs to get a face to face with the Officers and Senior NCO's.

Good times.

That works best when you can manage to get a bag full of wet "mail" on the hook then make one of them go tell the captain they got his mail wet.

For all the 19Kilos out there and their Marine equivalents - did any of you ever find the batteries for the MRS?

Or better yet, break a green chem-light in your hand and find the new guys telling him you "broke the MRS" as you smeared it on him?

we would usually just send the fng's to supply to get 100' of flightline or send them to NDI to get their steel toe boot x-rayed, and have the NDI guys red tag them and send them back to the shop with tagged boots in hand and barefoot.

I knew an AF Security guy who worked the "can neither confirm or deny" nuclear weapons storage facility. With new guys, they would cut open a glow stick and pour it out at the bottom of the door. The new guy would report "some glowing stuff" leaking out of the Nuke facility, and the rest of the security guys would put on their gas masks and hose the guy off to decontaminate him. Heard of a few times when the new guy would get so ticked off that he'd try to pop someone.

How about 10 feet of keel?

Or send the new guy to the bridge to ask the CO for the keys to the main engines so the ship can get underway?

SeaBat: take a bucket or a carboard box, attach a long piece of string to it and place it upside down on the flight deck. Have a group of people stand around it while one person is out of sight with the other end of the string. As the FNG comes up to see the seabat, the person with the string gives it a few tugs to make it look like something is alive underneath. As the FNG bends over to lift the box and see the seabat, he gets whacked in the @$$ with a broom.

Well I just got back from Miramar AFB where I laid out 1375 feet of flightline. Anyone who has flown in or out of there lately should know exactly what I mean. For the rest of you, there's a 1375' section of runway missing right now. But, after a bit of surveying while jets dusted us with prop wash as they did some touch and gos, the contractor should be ready to fill up the whole as soon as it stops raining. Oh, BTW, while surveying we did use small pieces of keel to mark things with. Really, keel is a crayon commonly used to mark lumber with. So, 10' of keel would problably be about 3 dozen pieces. I also own a left handed hammer that was made by Ridged a few years back.

We always sent our new joins looking for one of the following:

ID-10T forms
Keys to the supply Humvee
go ask the Sgt for the long weight (aka "long wait")
Can of A.I.R.
Batteries for the chem lights

I've also Heard of:
muffler bearings
flight line
blinker fluid

I think one of the best ones is the ID-10T form... mostly because the noobs end up going all over the place, and end up learning where every other section is located, so the next time we tell him to go to the Motor T office, they know exactly where it is.
