Horseshoe up! Let’s get this done because your heathens have a four day!
Not you Meach, that stunt you pulled with Droz and that crazy Blue Heeler of his – Jeeezuz. I don’t think the Chaplain will ever recover from that sick shit.
As we take the long weekend to celebrate the birth of the greatest nation to ever exist, let us remember why we do so with fireworks – because our hardnosed ass kicking ancestors fought the limey redcoats for our LIBERTY! So – take a second while you are between keg-stands and BBQ to consider what that generation of Americans put on the line to secure our future. This is the ONE holiday that it is OK to through some shade on our British allies (sorry mates!) – So, give ‘em hell! By the way – have you seen that cute little aircraft carrier they just built? Even the Russians are laughing at that thing – and their single carrier can’t even go to sea without a full contingent of tugs and repair vessels to keep it moving!
That being said, be a stand-up guy – don’t be a douchebag, even when giving your British buddies shit. Don’t ruin things for everyone around you this weekend. For you Vets – that means staying FUNCTIONAL – tighten up your shot group and be a productive member of society. There are too many who were the uniform and believe that the world owes them favors for the rest of their lives. Don’t be that guy.
Aside from that, keep an eye on the news – between the Pentagon believing that the Islamic State is already defeated, and the Islamic State starting shit around the globe… who knows what will happen next. Definitely keep your head on a swivel, you know those goatfuckers like to hit us in crowds and on holidays. BUT – it looks like the SCOTUS has reinstated the travel ban – so there is that.
Last but not least – remember to PMCS your POS before you GTFO.
Don’t Do Drugs or your Battle Buddy’s wife.
Don’t beat your dog, or your wife – and the kids only within reason.
If you are driving don’t drink, you know those MPs and troopers will bust your ass.
Meach – you and Droz stand by in the Motorpool – I think at least 12 of the HMMWVs need the tires changed.
Platoon Sergeants, take charge of your Platoons.
