    MGySgt -vs- SgtMaj

    MGySgt 1. When you meet a MGySgt in the passageway and say "What's up
    Master Guns?" He says (smiling) "What's up numb nuts". You both laugh,
    especially if it's a WM.

    SgtMaj 1. When you meet a SgtMaj in the passageway and you say "Good
    Morning Sgt Major" His response will vary depending on if he is within
    earshot of the CO. If he is, you will get a loud motivated response, a
    comment on your appearance, and an inquiry as to your welfare. If the CO
    is not present you will get only a grunt, with no eye contact at best.


    MGySgt 2. When you see a MGySgt on a Saturday morning, he's probably
    gassing up his $30,000 Custom Harley. He is wearing a ratty bike week
    tee shirt, faded ripped jeans, and riding boots. He's with his 3rd wife
    (very cute) who is 15 years younger than him, ("met her on recruiting
    duty, had to DQ her").

    You say "What's up Master Guns?" He responds with, "What's up Numb
    nuts".

    You all laugh, and you wish you had a bike like that.

    SgtMaj 2. When you see a SgtMaj on a Saturday morning. He's wearing a
    smartly pressed collared shirt, Dockers, boat shoes, and leather belt.
    He's sitting by himself in the PX food court wondering what he is going to do
    with a day off? You walk all the way around to avoid him because you
    aren't dressed like a gay Tiger Woods and don't want to hear his crap on
    a Sat.


    MGySgt 3. If you ever find yourself in the MGySgt's office for an butt
    chewing, it's very likely you'll leave shaken, probably crying, but
    highly motivated to do better.

    SgtMaj 3. If you ever find yourself in the SgtMaj's office for an butt
    chewing, it's very likely you'll leave mostly knowing all about how
    great the SgtMaj was when he was your rank (3 years ago). However you
    know your Master Gunny will get you back on track, see MGySgt 3.


    MGySgt 4. If you run in to the MGySgt at the club, he'll probably be a
    half a beer away from smacking some new WO, who used to work for him 10
    years ago. He is also about three dollars away from being broke, but
    will borrow a $20 from his Gunny to buy you beer. However you will most
    likely have to hear stories about how much of a screw up he was as a
    troop, how much pipe he laid overseas, and how much illegal stuff he did
    on recruiting duty.

    The stories will get better the drunker the MGunz gets. The MGunz' new wife
    will show up later to drive him home, but she won't drink as she isn't
    old enough.

    SgtMaj 4. If you run in to the SgtMaj at the club, he'll probably be
    drinking water, and keeping close tabs on how much beer everybody else
    is drinking. He wouldn't think of inviting you, or anyone for that
    matter over, because he is afraid of a confrontation with any Marine
    that is drinking. He will always leave early (before 1800) as he to
    field day his room in the barracks.


    MGySgt 5. When you see the MGySgt at unit P.T. you'll be surprised how
    well a fat old guy can run. But more importantly, you want to get in
    better shape so that old prick can't talk mess to you about PT anymore.

    SgtMaj 5. When you see the SgtMaj at unit P.T., he'll be running back and
    forth yelling at the road guards, the meat wagon driver, Plt Sgts, run
    drops, etc., or anything/anybody that will get him attention. After the
    run he will call all the SNCO's together and counsel them for poor
    cadence, crappy cover and alignment, and generally how nobody is as good
    a leader as he is. Oh and by the way he will remind everyone that he is
    "The Sgt Major" several times.


    MGySgt 6. When you call the MGySgt at 0100 and tell him that you are
    heading to the hospital because your wife is in labor, he'll probably
    say "Alright brother, drive safely and I'll see you in a couple of
    weeks. Make sure you call me if you need anything."

    SgtMaj 6. When you call the SgtMaj at 0100 and tell him that you are
    heading to the hospital because your wife is in labor, he'll probably
    say "Why are you calling me?"


    MGySgt 7. If you happen to see the MGySgt in the barracks after 1630,
    he's probably just stumbled over from the club half lit, hide the W.M.s.

    SgtMaj 7. If you happen to see the SgtMaj in the barracks after 1630,
    he's probably just passing through coming back from attending the free
    movie on base. Hide the MGySgt and the W.M. he is currently counseling.


    MGySgt 8. If you happen to run into the MGySgt in the field, he's
    probably sitting on a lawn chair, joking with his Marines. He'll most
    likely be nursing a hang over from all the warm beer he drank at the
    card game with his SNCO's the night before.

    SgtMaj 8. If you happen to run into the SgtMaj in the field, he'll be
    bird dogging the CO, rearranging the guard schedule for the 18th time,
    or in his hooch, wondering how he can get a fourth tour on the drill
    field.


    MGySgt 9. If you happen to see the MGySgt at the Marine Corps Ball, he's
    probably about half a beer past smacking somebody (rank doesn't matter)
    and working on getting smacked by somebody (rank doesn't matter). He'll
    gladly buy you a drink if you could tell him where his medals are?
    You'll need to help him find his medals, as they fell off when he was
    trying to break dance.

    SgtMaj 9. If you happen to see the SgtMaj at the Marine Corps Ball, he's
    probably drinking water and telling stories about his three tours on the
    drill field. His wife's not there because she is a 1st Sgt who is
    presently on the drill field, and has duty.


    MGySgt 10. If you happen to see a MGySgt talking to a SgtMaj he's
    probably calling the SgtMaj by his 1st name and helping him with a
    problem he handled when he was acting Sgt Major. (When he was a Gunny 10
    years ago).

    SgtMaj 10. If you happen to see a SgtMaj talking to a MGySgt, he is
    calling the MGunz,.. "Master Gunnery Sergeant" and trying his best to
    convince himself that he's the senior Marine.

    Guess I am not that familiar with any Master Guns as the only one I personally knew was my girlfriend's father.

    At Schwab, never saw a Master Guns.

    No Master Guns at Fuji with Sub Unit or Range Company.

    Only saw Master Guns in passing on mainside Lejeune because unless the Engineer schoolhouse had them at Courthouse Bay, there were none at 2nd Tracks during my time there.

    Always ran into a Sgt Major everywhere...

    MGySgt honcho of the chow hall at Edson Range approaches private me - standing around after cooking breakfast all night and not knowing what to do with myself:
    Did you eat yet?
    "No sir"
    Well, you know how to cook!?
    "Yes sir"
