Assumption of Command

25 March 2005

This is my kind of Sergeant Major.

I just ran in to this posting by a former Marine Officer, ShadesOfGrey, and he explains how his Sergeant Major saved his rear end.

The Sergeant Major--A Sea Story:
It so happened that while I was in the process of killing this snake, the military variant of the Parks and Wild Life Swat Team was driving by and witnessed me in violation of some federal statute protecting rattlesnakes. The vehicle pulled up just as I administered the death knell blow, pumped my arms, and yelled “Yeah!”
This is a good story.
