Assumption of Command

27 February 2005

Can't Spell LosT Without LT.

Reminds me of the scene in Platoon.

SGT B. in The Gun Line: Newbie Antics...:
My Platoon Commander had been assigned the job of navigating. Folks, it didn't bode well when he tried to take a MAGNETIC azimuth from the Troop Commander's hatch of the LVPT7A1 (now called the AAV-7, basically an APC that swims), and was convinced that whatever direction he was heading was NORTH...


Its nice not to be a Lieutenant anymore.
