i see no problem here other than an obvious compititon on who is the coolest kid at nap time
@Bisexual Potato, "How do you sleep at night?"
"Like a princess"
@Bisexual Potato, they sleep on top of the sheets. I know I did when my mom got me my tweety bird sheets.
@Bisexual Potato, haha never mind, I get it.
For those not privy to a BX/PX around a basic training installation, if you yell at Soldiers enough like they are children (i.e. Privates) enough and you give them an inch of freedom, they will take every galactic space of that inch. The results are usually good, but there are always the few whom take it too far.
@City87, as someone who has been to basic and AIT, I approve of this
@rainfire, I never had the luxury of this when I went through, but I would have if given the chance. Out of six months for AIT, I had one off-post pass and someone fvcked that up by going to a strip club. After that, we weren't allowed to leave the barracks. When I earned my brown-round, I made sure to return that fun we all need to build camaraderie before we deploy. Especially through public humiliation, my favorite.
@City87, there's always gonna be "that guy" that ruins something for everyone, so public humiliation is the only acceptable punishment. Btw where'd you go for AIT?
@rainfire, first one was fort Sam, second was fort Jackson, and I was on my way to the third at fort Bragg after passing SERE but was hit by a drunk driver while on my motorcycle. Unfortunately, the army is not at metal gear status with robotic Soldiers yet and 18 series was not having it.
@City87, oh man that's rough, I feel like all drunk drivers should be executed on the spot, but that's just me. How long were you in?
@rainfire, 10 years, 6 deployments (3 in each and voluntarily), volunteered for Katrina and Rita relief when stationed at Hood, and Alaska mobilization when Putin threatened to take Alaska back in 2008. We need to get to metal gear status, so I can get back to what I do best.
@City87, I hear that, 6 years as a reservist with no deployments, currently in irr, but I'm not sure how hard it would be to get into active duty
@rainfire, after that first deployment and the hell I've been through, I couldn't imagine any other life. Airborne, All the Way!
@City87, I could imagine, yay signal..total pog right here lmao
@rainfire, it doesn't matter whether one is a pog or not, we're all in this together, "one team, one fight," right?
@City87, that's true, plus my mos would give me the option of going outside the wire since I can be used as an rto
@rainfire, I know Commo will always be needed, especially since we still use sincgars. The signal regiment just needs to shut down, tighten their shot group, and have pride in their regiment to rebuild that camaraderie again. I always had my Commo guys backs in anything they needed, like Supply, Cooks, Mechanics (since I once was an All-Wheeler Recovery NCO once upon a time), and any other support mos like it's supposed to be, but all the regiments have their priorities ate the hell up and there isn't one team anymore, but we know who is responsible for that jack-ball fuster-cluck. America needs to get back to being dress-right, dress and we can only do that if America polices itself up, instead of worrying about offensive feelings.
@rainfire, I went to Fort Lee.
@City87, I agree, and I definitely take pride in being in commo, since combat arms can't do their jobs properly without radios. I really wish this country would stop being offended by everything, it's just dragging us down and holding us back from our potential
@saturday night fever, what mos?
@rainfire, My primary was 77W (water purification) and secondary was 92F (petroleum).
@saturday night fever, oh clean water and fuel, always important, definitely could have been useful support at ft. Hunter-ligget, CA, a couple years ago lol
@rainfire, LOL. We provided support for the 2nd COSCOM and the 7th Corps. And we always had hot showers!
@saturday night fever, So lucky! We had to go a week without showers out there. Also the people refueling the gens didn't want to do their job so we kept losing power to the hospital and s6 shop
@rainfire, I feel for you! Being in QM Supply has its benefits.
@saturday night fever, too true friend, that's why I made friends in supply 😀
@City87, thank you for your service
@City87, I had a Batman set in my barracks room.
@saturday night fever, I did that class and drove the shjt out of those deuce and a halves and five tons with the 500 gallon fuel pods and the pls trucks when I was mechanic to motor sergeant(H8) and my mom had that as an mos during desert storm/desert shield. When I finished that class, I called my mom and told her that her job sucks, driving JP8 around is just asking to be blown up, but I drove the HEMMT Wrecker and that is just the same since the enemy knows what happens if they shoot/blow my truck up on convoys. I've also had to siphon JP8 before and that is the worst taste for the next few days. People said I was crazy for volunteering and passing SERE to go 18E, but y'all are crazy for driving those time bombs, so respect for y'all fuel handlers.
@frosty licker, thank you for allowing me to serve.
@rainfire, regardless of reserves, nasty guard, sailors that can't swim but work on the water, and even ughh airmen and women, thank y'all for yalls service and y'all are and will always be my Brothers and Sisters, pogs or not.
@saturday night fever, since many don't do it, except for those with true gratuity, as a fellow serviceman thank you for your service.
@City87, agreed, and I thank you for your service!
@City87, hats off to you too! Thanks for your service. Your mom and I didn't really have typical female Army jobs, but hey, once you learn it, it's all good. But you know that :)
@saturday night fever, right before I joined, I learned that the army taught my mom hand-to-hand combat well and she paid attention. I took a right hook to the mouth and I had braces. Before any judgement, I was pulled over by a cop on a midnight joyride in her company car and that's how she woke up. Gpa, mom, and myself were all army during major wars and we definitely like fighting. Ignorant denizens that say they would never fight any wars with women, truly have no idea the hell we could create together to fight those that want to create tyranny. The same goes to those afraid to fight with different sexual preferences. If I am shot, which I say from experience, I don't care what you prefer, pray to Whomever they believe is listening, or what gender you believe yourself to be, I expect to be firemen carried or rescued depending on condition all the same. However, due to social standards and musical standards set by us, I am technically a rapper after being shot.
I'm a senior in college and my bedding is all starwars. My roommates is all marvel
My admiration for those who serve just went up a few notches!
@Langenator, that whole charity event about stopping some African warlord from using child soldiers?
@Scusii, I know that, but what does that have to do with the picture
@Langenator, Oh, wait, I just got it
I agree with these choices
@girlnamedlime, you comment all the photos. That's takes work. I applaud you.
You guys!!! I actually made top comment on something!!! It only took me 7 months but I did it!!!
Legit the last one used to be my sheets when I was little
My bedding is all SpongeBob too and I'm 23.
I had a avengers complete bead set while I was in the army lol
I had the first bed sheets. I was really into sponge bob when I was a kid.
Good hospital corners doe
Did anyone else look at the top two pics at once and for a moment think "that is one f**ked up bunk bed!"? No? Just me? Okay....,.
Well. They are all about 18. Little tykes.
Don't have to ask but please, do tell ;)
My son has the same lightning McQueen sheets. And I'm super jealous.
And all of those were guys beds
