08-02-06, 04:13 PM
or If you ever made your girlfriend stay the weekend in the barracks because hotels are expensive. If you ran a pft better hung over than you did sober. If you have ever been to a bar with 13 of your closest friends and wondered why you couldn't pick up any women. If you know your 12th and 13th general orders. If you think the girl you met in J'Ville was really a virgin. If you think that girl doesn't know how to get in touch with you when you leave her and she finds out she's pregnant with your platoon's child. If you still arrive an hour and ahalf early to everything-and you got out six months ago.

08-02-06, 04:24 PM
or If you ever made your girlfriend stay the weekend in the barracks because hotels are expensive. If you ran a pft better hung over than you did sober.

Lol. I read that to my wife and we both started laughing. Back when she was my gf she spent an entire week in the barracks on the DL. She was visiting from Iowa and a room was way to much. lol..oh and dont get any ideas she was the barracks rat either ! she was all mine and i wasnt sharing. :)

Every Pft I ran hung over I had awesome times. all the ones where i got plenty of sleep and was well rested i sucked.

08-02-06, 04:39 PM
true, outlaw. my wife did too. man, i kinda miss those days. I mean..if you ever miss living in the barracks....

08-02-06, 04:43 PM
yeah i was bs'ing with a few buddies of mine yesterday and barracks rats came up. How any time chicks would show up all the grunts would get out on the catwalks and start hooting and hollering. OH and God forbid you actually had a rat in your room. Every Tom , Dick and Harry wanted to stop by ( with their shirt off ) to borrow soap, brasso, iron, to return that dollar they borrowed from you back in SOI, to ask you a question about some crap on their MCI . Lol....f*cking Marines!

08-02-06, 05:06 PM
how about when the nerdy guy two rooms down had his sister in town to visit? you could see it from any tlz on base. there'd be about twenty f'in Marines out there trying to get a good look at some poor guys fat 15 yr. old sister. dirty, dirty bastards. even the boots would show up. one of my friends had these two rats that would cook for him and bring him food like everyother night. and that was it. they just felt like feeding this Marine that wouldn't even be seen out in j'ville with them. pretty funny stuff.

08-02-06, 05:16 PM
lol....exactly ...oh wow you brought up some funny memories, and when you said a fat 15 year old sister thats no sh*t! Marines are dirty , filthy , vile creatures , who have absolutely no morals or standards. I would never ever want any of those bastards around my sister and theres absolutely no way in hell I would ever go to war without those same bastards.

08-02-06, 05:35 PM
no doubt, well said. man, i miss those guys.

08-02-06, 06:52 PM
sounds like I missed out lol
