It's Friday, so we know you're counting down to libo formation (If you're getting it. Are you sure you're getting it? I heard 1SG is making everyone pull duty because that one guy in your squad was caught shirking off again, you know the one).

It does reduce the number of sailors visiting the corpsman after port call.

Poor Coast Guard, homeland security just doesn't have that DoD budget.

"Alright guys, now act like we're getting on the invisible helicopter."

"Used to date a beauty queen..."

The sound of freedom... is annoying.

Spotters are like battle buddies, but not so touchy-feely.

They're also good for keeping score.

These things always sneak up on me...

Time to stock up on energy shots and protein powder.

You think your girlfriend nags a lot? Wait till you meet the petty officers.

A man in pajamas at a liquor store is to a recruiter what blood in the water is to sharks.
