I was a PFC Platoon RTO in the 82D. We did some training in VA and were on a Trailways bus back to Bragg. I took a thick marker and wrote "Show Us Your Tits!" on a large piece of paper. I'll be DAMNED! It WORKED! Some chick that was a passenger of a car actually did it! The bus went CrAzY! In a matter of minutes, everyone had the same sign on their window. When we finally got to the Post Gate, The Installation CSM and My Brigade CSM were waiting for us. A retired COL was traveling with his wife and Grandkids and saw all the signs. He called Trailways with the Bus#, then the Bragg Provost Marshall, then the Bragg Installation Commander.

I fessed up and took all the blame. I did 45 days of Additional Duty with the Brigade CSM. It was worth every minute! I was a freaking HERO in the Company!

As a 1SG I had to report to the Fort Campbell Post Commander and CSM for calling a dirtbag an oxygen thief . It appears that he cried to his momma, who called her congress man, who called the CG. I showed the CG and CSM his packet and that I was trying to get him out but the process was to slow, got chewed out and then CSM made a few phone calls, dirtbag was gone in a few days. Yes I would do it again.

Tsgt Kenna, I sense contention in your comment. Quite obviously the weed alone most likely did not cause his brother (or him, whoever was driving) to kill the both of them, but I am sure the unfortunate private's enjoying getting stoned on weed, pills, booze, and misc. mind altertering substances did. I said weed and pills in the generic sense. I can't speak for you, but I saw lot's of guys f'd up on a combo of weed and other crap, and they were pretty much out of it.

Sorry for the confusion here. It sounds like Tsgt Keena, when saying "got to watch out for that deadly weed" was downplaying it's effect on people. I don't think marajuana is, by itself, deadly....and I don't think Tsgt Keena does either. But what I can say is that the "stoner" types I knew in the army (luckily few in number in my units) did not just smoke weed, they smoked it and ate, drank, and mixed whatever they could to get a buzz on, including entire bottles of Robitussin from the despensary. It is my humble option that the late private's life ended early, in part, due to his affinity for weed,whiskey, quaaludes....whatever would fry his melon.

Think I told this one before but we had a real Alpha Hotel XO down in Antarctica who made everyone's day that much more trying. If we could just get rid of him. So I found out the XO really wanted to go to the South Pole but didn't want to be gone long. I told him to have his gear ready for the next "double shuttle". It was a deal where two Hercs took off about 3 hours apart. So after the first one got unloaded and the stuff put away, the second one would come in an repeat the process. So that gave about 4 hours time at the station. The XO was elated so I told him to standby. The following week, I ran into the command center and yelled, "XO, double shuttle!" He was off like a shot and on his quick adventure. Problem was the Skipper overheard and said "Kev, there's no double shuttle today." Apparently the Skipper was worn down by the XO and was looking to have some time away from him too. He told the Department Heads that he was going to think up a suitable punishment for my egregious behavior. Turned out he never did and my FITREP didn't suffer. Like the bus episode I was the hero and pretty much drank free at the club for the rest of the deployment. Footnote: the XO was gone for a week. I sent a case of scotch to the South Pole station manager for his troubles. He sent an note back that said to send another case. The XO wanted to nail me but somehow the Skipper didn't have a problem knowing the VXE-6 folk doctored the log to indicate the second half of the shuttle went down for parts.

This incident occurred some time after I gassed him with nitrous oxide in his stateroom. Another story.

CAPT, that is simply one of the best stories I've seen. We need more officers like you.
