Re: My Job, My Hell...

Now just a quick sample of what it is like to be married to LIl.... I was working in the shop, getting ready to go to the range with some of the guys (Padilla and his family were coming up for the weekend) when the phone rang. I checked to see who it was and it was Lil's phone number. I knew that Cr...

Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

My wife and I were stationed in Hawaii when she was active duty AF. Some of her family came over to visit, so we had to do the usual tourist stuff. We ended up at the Halona Point blowhole and were just in time to watch a family of morons walk down the beach and up past the do not enter signs and st...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

We made it all the way to Florida but did some time up in Northern Alabama with Doobie and some cousins. Creepy asked me (after I started talking to her again, I’m on the fence about killing her.) One part proud of her, three parts still spitting and ticked off. Anyway she asked if all of our family...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

2nd Platoon, what can I say about 2nd Platoon....other than word from up high (also known as Battalion Headquarters) was that I was PCSing from Korea to a base stateside. Typically a list of soldiers being transferred would come out on a RIP, and then the Senior NCOs would take a look at the names a...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well we are heading out tomorrow. Lil gave me my license back so James, Dean and I are heading to El Paso (well the Border between El Paso and Juarez to pick up Billy Padilla and then over to Lubbock to meet up with Bobby Blackdog. Unfortunately I have to bring Creepy with me and bring her back. Tak...

Just when you think it won’t or can’t get worse.....it does. Granddaughter to Lil (known as Rollo instead of Lola) did you know that if you throw pieces of spark plug ceramic at car windows it can make them explode? Lil: Let me guess Pops taught you that? Lil- If you ruin up my Baby, I’ll hurt you. ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well it seems we are leaving. Lil is going to work and I am going with her because it seems I can’t behave in a “non-meat eating fashion”. Now at this point a rational husband would have kept his mouth shut, but oh no not me. I had to go an open my mouth....again and again....and one more time for g...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well I guess it was a sel fulfilling prophecy Lil “confiscated” my DL. I suppose I should not be surprised since back in 1989 she confiscated my retired military ID card for causing an issue. Still haven’t got it back yet. Lost the DL for aggressive driving. Our granddaughter wanted me to pick her u...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I would like to add that Robert had some of the guys from his unit come by and one of the was a pretty big guy. He was probably around 6’5” tall and built like a tank. Robert convinced him to pick him up and carry him to the Latrine. As they walked past my bed Robert said something to him and he sai...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I ended up in a Military hospital at Cubi Point, located adjacent to Subic Bay Naval base. I should have gotten a discount on multiple visits. As far as Military hospitals go it was not really that bad. The worst one I did time in was in Colorado. Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center, I actually escaped ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Welcome back Laager! I was wondering how it all turned out. Well let us just say that it was a long drive from Manila to Olongapo City. I also had to give up my Guns and gear allowance to pay for my last minute (due to my behavior) round trip ticket. It was a very “frosty” reception at the airport ...

Okay I have two more stories, but I'm thinking that once again I would let you guys choose which one comes next. Option one: the shoe laceless morons. Option two: New assignment and the loons and goons in 2nd Platoon found out I was being transferred to their unit and a bunch of them wanted either m...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

While Laager's comments about choosing the Army or jail are quite correct, what I was referring to when I wrote about jail time was the draft. I suppose that if I had said "the alternative was jail or going to Canada" I would have been clearer. While it is true that overall about 2/3 of the troops ...
