One of the most consistently terrible experiences of my career before becoming an NCO was fire watch. It didn’t matter if I had the first or last hour, or the ones in between, I hated it. All of it. Every time. Sure, you would be able to catch beautiful sunsets and sunrises and look up at nature in all its glory every once in a while. Then when it’s over you look down at your “POS” sleeping bag, sometimes in a literal hole in the ground with a spider on it, and that is part of nature too. This is the good shift.

The worst fire watch would be two hours before reveille, stand guard for one, and then either get a head start with your day or try to sleep for an hour, which you won’t be able to because the early bird troops are already waking up and making noise. It’s my most vividly loathed experience. As a boot I’d rather get hazed to death than stand one hour of it – but I digress.

Well, well, well. If it isn’t the consequences of my own actions.

Now cough!

USMC: Ah- Coyote Brown!? At this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within your branch!?
USAF: Yes.
USMC: …May I see it?
USAF: …No.

Nah, nah, nah. You wanted everyone to know how smart you are. Now you’re going to prove it with death by PowerPoint.

That’s just, like, your opinion, SSGT.

One of my favorite memories of my time in the Corps was when we were in Djibouti, Africa, during a training exercise. The drawdown also overlapped with our company Gunny’s birthday. Now let me tell you, this man was respected and loved by everyone across all ranks. We celebrated his birthday with a massive BBQ, flares in the night sky to simulate fireworks, two beers per troop, and a giant bonfire in the desert. Now when I say giant, I mean massive. Like, if we were civilians, it would have been a hazard because we slightly underestimated how huge it became.

However, because we are rational Marines we simply stepped back. We made sure we had enough space and a plan to control the fire if it got out of hand. Yet, this one Marine captured a mouse in his gear. Ran up to the flames, dangled the criminal creature up to his face and yelled ‘F*** you!’ and launched it into the mouth of hades like some sort of pagan sacrifice. Morale was never higher than that day.

I enlisted to lead, not to read. I pick number three! Number three!

This has to be CCP propaganda against beards leaked.

I loved Korea. Was only there two months as only a small part of our UDP, but I loved every second of it. I would have reenlisted if you told me I could stay there for four more years. We even went on a tour guide to the DMZ. IF you ever get a chance to go to the museum, absolutely do it. You won’t regret it.

What about the little yellow birdie on the windowsill? He’s okay, right? Guys?

“SSGT tells me you want to take leave for the holiday block but you have duty.”

Would you survive drinking games with this legend?

I’ll always be a Marine in my heart.

Now we’re all combat ineffective.

It’s not four more years, it’s four different years.

Those MCIs don’t look so stupid now, huh?

Actually, your triad decided to just not show up that day.

Short king love.

Well, technically if the Captain has to use this then I guess we are in hot water.


This is fine.

We got a runner!
