This is just for some laughs

What was your call sign or nickname while in and how did you get it...

Mine was Wreck It Ralph, due to I actually broke a GSA Safe that ended up needing to be drilled to get it open.

Elevator, from 1979 until 1982 I went up and down in rank so many times that it became a good fit.

I wrote a quote on my dry erase board in my legal office once that said; "SPC **** was promoted more times that a CSM." He made it to SPC 4 times. after Field Grade Article 15's reducing him to PVT E1.

I had a DS like that. Never really knew what rank he would be when we woke each morning Started as E7 and the platoons head DS.Two days later he was an E6 and the asst. DS, A week later he was an E5. A few days later he was an E6 again. The day prior to graduation he was wearing E7 stripes again. I still have no Idea how he got the stripes back so fast. I do know I was impressed that he could go from E7 down to E5 and back to E7 so fast.

SGT Patrick Wells - Back then you could contest the field grade by taking it up the chain and having it expunged. He got the rank back as he got the charges expunged from his record.

While working in a Army Confinement Facility we were having forced cell movement training. I just so happen to hit one of the guards who was portraying the "inmate" just right in the jaw and broke it and he had to have it wired shut for a few months. After that I was "Jaw Breaker".

Britannica. Apparently, my ability to pull out endless amounts of useless trivia was my most outstanding trait. haha
