RP Members, Connections, and Friends I believe there are some really outrageous nicknames that have been handed out to some of you when you served in the Military. Lets' get them out there and don't be embarrased. Please share! This is one of those Posts that just keep giving over time. RP Members keep adding your nicknames.

Don't leave us hanging - share the story behind the nickname too!!

One of my many was: "Burly" and when I was a PFC/E-3 it was "Horse Collar!" Others I can't repeat from Basic Training - use your imagination!

Hojo. Weird seems like forever ago. Not even sure who gave it to me or when it started.

I worked in NDI and we did a lot of x-raying on F-15s. We had a cart that held all of our x-ray equipment. We made magnet signs to stick on it when we went out that had Coors Light X-Ray Team on them.

I was called "MAC" until I made Chief Petty Officer (CPO E-7) and then they called me "Chief Mac". After I made Warrant they called me "Mr. Mac"

I think everyone that their last name was Mc was called Mac. On job #2 they never did call me that.
