First and foremost, thank you everyone for getting this pic enough attention that it’s currently on the main page. Even the haters helped make that happen. Quick little synopsis about the photo: 1) Yes, I am, in fact, a POG. A 2821, as it were. This means that even if I found myself in theater, 99% of my job would have me behind the wire, tucked into a little air-conditioned techo-vault. It’s not like I’d be going around kicking in doors anyway, so…yeah. I understand this concept is infuriating to those who I am presuming to be grunts/former grunts, because everyone knows that every grunt that ever existed spent 300% of their time eating foreign babies and buttfucking terrorists in the soul, ST6-style. And grunts are REALLY the only guys that count because let’s face it, chow/pay/comm-networks appear out of some fucking magical dimension all by themselves, and because explosions.
2.)The reason for the two hashmarks is simply that I crossed into the Corps after serving time in the Navy, then having to start all the way back at the bottom when I stepped on those yellow footprints at Parris Island. Once after boot camp/MCT/Comm School was done with, I started my Reserve time while enrolling in college under the Post 9/11. After all that, I still decided to pledge instead of be a GDI.
So, there it is. Seemingly disproportionate hashmark/rank ratio…no CAR…and still enlisted! Thanks again everyone for getting my pic on the main page, and to my detractors I now return you to your regularly scheduled mutual hatesturbation session. Cheers.
^ your wife is purrtay.
Oh and thanks for your service. And this book
In Afghan chow did actually appear magically out of the sky. It would fall down on a parachute. It was literally manna from heaven. Pay is always fucked up. I do have respect for 0621s. I appreciate the insight into the mind of an 8 year boot.
Thank you gentleman for serving our country.
Only service they’ve do is to each other behind their desks. Check their stacks (or lack thereof).
*they’d. My rage has forced me to type incoherently.
Marine Corps Ball, the best Formal you’ll ever attend.
Thank you for your service, gentlemen. Frat on.
HOLY SHIT!!! An eight year SGT. with no Iraq or Afghan campaign and no CAR!?!?!?! Where have you been hiding the last 8+ years? People like you are why I got the fuck out. POS POG(ue).
semper fi, but you’re not greek. those strips on your arms means you’ve never been commisioned or went through ocs, meaning you have no college degree.
Yeah dumbshit, my chapter has 2 brothers in the reserves and they still go to the Marine corps ball…
You can enlist after college as well.
Eskimo brothers? Still counts.
just cause you can doesnt mean anyone in their right mind would. do i want to be called sir and get paid better with better benefits and a better overal job/experience or shit on by basically everyone in the corps? and “dumbshit” you can be a commissioned officer in the reserves and it goes right back to what i said, there is no upside of patches over metal…none
Just because they’re not officers doesn’t mean they didn’t go to college, champ.
Calm down, Mitchell.
You’re so dumb
