Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the track
Not a creature was stirring
We'd all hit the rack.
Our web gear was hung
On the side with great care
Hoping our relief
Would soon be there.
Suddenly we saw
On the radar with fright
A blip heading from the East
With great height
Unable to raise Pittman (the batteries had froze)
We saw through the binos a shiny read…Continue
What? The Army now wears berets? No shit. Wonder where they got that idea from.

Thanks for calling Gene. Haven't been on here for years. A very Merry Christmas and a semi sober New Year to everyone. Me? Working for JPMorgan Chase as a home equity loan auditor. Downtown Phoenix, Arizona on the 23rd floor. Some military, mostly civilian. My trainer was a Marine and my AVP was Air Force. Guess they needed someone from the Army to round it out. No stress, easy job, good money. I'd venture to say this is a good place to retire from.
Been reading posts about the Rock and stories about bunkers, Ammo storage, etc. The How Battery complex at Bayreuth (barracks, Mess, Offices and club building) had a fourth floor. The 1st Sergeant and I inspected it often to ensure it was clean and no female garments were there. Seems the previous 2ACR Commander had walked through once and wanted to see the whole building. He found a bra and panties on the fourth floor. That floor was off limits, but soldiers will be soldiers...
