What kind of show are y'all doing over there @ 2nd COSCOM? :)

We heard some rumors about some major whose wife sent him a movie of her cheating on him and he went berzerk. Damn rumors about everything. I started making some up myself after about 4 months in country. 8)

The story about the major was true redmaxx? The rumor was very explicit video was sent and he didn't know it and showed it to everyone.

Haze: The dude you thinkin' about was SPC. Wilky. He was a wheel mechanic but not very good.

He went off at the range with his pistol. He pointed at everyone there. I was there and he turned the weapon on himself. That light skinned black SGT. who sang cadences well talked him down; but, yes he was almost taken out.

I don't think that he ever got a video. He was wacked before we left for Saudi. He would make us drink a canteen full of water at the morning formation. We have 1 minute to do it. If we didn't then we had to refill them and do it again.

That is the kind of mess I don't miss. We had a platoon SGT. in Korea that was frikkin' bonkers. Accused during team spirit of steeling his underwear. Whacko!

I always hated drinking that much water, everytime it seemed you had to drink a canteen full.i allways kept a little koolaid in mine just to give it some flavor.

That is the reason that I do not like to drink plain water.

The water was actually a necessity, but like many other things, it got out of control. It is much healthier to drink a couple quarts a day, but in smaller amounts at a time ... that way you don't just piss it out. Water under the bridge, I know, but there were so many of these stupid rules because somebody in charge interpreted something important into something stupid.

I went nearly 4 days with no sleep ... none ... finally got a break when the cease fire took place and I racked out on a cot next to my track. Within an hour I was woken up and told to clean the graffitti off my track that Franks came thru and saw the graffiti and had a fit, so I was ordered to remove it immediately. The graffiti I had on my track was "The Duece Coupe" written in chalk ... Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!

General Franks is a Super Lifer. People like him don't like to see things like that. Even though it wasn't anything offensive, he didn't like it.
