if you can go LAV crewman more power to you. Riding pigs are good times. Drive by so fast at night they can't even time the IED's right.

Off topic, but about two years ago they started switching out LAVs in iraq with newer uparmor and engines. During my last deployment, they had an older model with just an upgraded engine. Sonuva***** was the fastest moving vehicle in Al-Anbar province.

Can't discount the tanks either. Considering how heavy they are, they move unfreakingbelievably fast. Nothing scarier than walking down the road in Camp Fallujah and a freaking Abrams comes screaming by trying to turn a corner.

Follow my yellowbrick road. We should have got his real name so we could have sent him a postcard with kittens or daisies on the front.

Saw 2 guys that paid for those 2 treats.

My DI called me into the duty hut
Had me shove 8-9 in my mouth
"CHEW!"
"Mubbled Aye Aye Sir"
I choked on them..

I got a half can of monster out of it though

Hope Edward doesn't get IT'd to death there.
See ya in 3 months

The more i think of it, we should try to find out his real name. Im sure finding the platoon he drops with wont be hard after that.

Only thing is we should wait at least 3 weeks so the guy has a fighting chance...I know Im soft but wouldnt want the guy to get attacked in the first week.

How about that phone call home.
Recruit "Hi it's me,I'm safe and I graduate on 18 NOV 94"
Mom or Dad "are you OK do you like it?"
Recruit "I gotta go"
DI "GET OFF THE PHONE!!"
Recruit --Hangs up--
Mom or Dad "hello,hello?"
I say,If he is single,Hello kitty envelope w/some girly pics,He'll get to keep em' after they are "paid for"

My son is 3 weeks away from becoming a Marine, he is at MCRD in San Diego now. Its tough mentally and physically. Momma and I have been writing lots of encouraging letters. Our son is in great physical shape, and its still tough. Anyway, congrats, keep your head low and your voice loud.
