An idea we should all employ to encourage the lil chiselers to get their own house ASAP. Can we take BAH out of their allowance?

Understand them all! Shoot! most of 'em apply to me.

10. You have sector sketches and range cards posted by every window in your house.
No comment:rolleyes:

20. Your wife's "high-n-tight" is more squared away then your commander's.
Her dad doesn't like it, though. Says she looks like Grace Jones.

34. You have pull-up bars outside the kitchen door.
Yeah. And your point is?

35. Your daughter's first haircut was a flattop.
OK, you got me there. Wife wouldn't allow it. Little girl cried on&off for two days, though, because "Daddy wouldn't give me a haircut."


:D

Any of you ex-military guys want to explain why command elements have "6" as part of their radio call sign?

And you might be a little too HOO-AHH! if your kids yell out, "Prepare for exfil!" when the school bus pull up.

Pretty easy one there.

1-4 = platoon or squads respectively
5 = NCOIC
6 = Commander or PL
7 = XO

So A136 would be the squad leader of Alpha company, 1st platoon, 3rd squad. We usually inserted a 0 for tracks = ie A1306 would be the same, with A Co, 1st platoon, 3rd squad track commander.

Then you add another level of confusion with Alpha for actual and Romeo for the RTO if Alpha isn't present.

When the crap hits the fan, procedure goes out the window many times and nicknames, "Code name <whatever>" (think last name), and more gets used.

"Whiskey Milkshake, this is Angry Badger, initiate the breach over."
"Ahhh, roger that, we're making a run for the border and have eyes on the Nachos Bellgrande":rolleyes:

Then you get the hardcore radio guys where if you do anything off the proper procedure you are getting an article 15. It's pretty funny when a hardcore RTO has to deal with a National Guard pilot who doesn't give a damn.
