Terminal Lance #241 “The Wooly Pully”
December 18, 2012
I know there’s some Marines in various places and billets that probably wear this thing a lot. For the average grunt, however, it’s just that ugly sweater that sits next to your all-weather jacket, left in the crevices and forgotten corners of your body bag, as new and crisp as the day it was issued to you in boot camp.
It’s entirely possible I just never wore the damned thing because I was stationed in beautiful Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. There’s no need for wool sweaters in such a climate that stays 85 year-round with high humidity. I still have it though, I’m honestly not even sure if I have ever actually tried it on. The same could be said for my all-weather jacket, which still has the tags it was issued to me with firmly attached.
Regardless, it’s kind of a cool-looking sweater. It has a very kind of weirdly science-fiction quality to it, wearing it (I’m sure) embues one with a sense of piloting a star cruiser in the depths of the Milky Way.
Okay, I don’t really have a whole lot to say about the wooly pully, other than I’ve still never worn it.
In other news, I hinted at some new items on the Facebook page. Stay tuned this week (hopefully later today or tomorrow) on how you can get ahold of the item I posted. I have a very limited quantity for the time being, but if demand is high enough I’ll be able to do more.
