Hey gents, no new new strip today, it’s finals week and I’m balls deep in 12F animation paper trying to get this final finished before tomorrow. However, please accept this Marine Corps Times strip as a token of my appreciation for bearing with me.
Brand new Terminal Lance strips are featured in the Marine Corps Times every week, just so you know.
As for this guy, obviously this sort of thing probably isn’t something they actually do anymore (especially with the draw-down). But I always remember hearing these stories, and at the very least, back when I enlisted this sort of ultimatum still happened (from what some other Marines told me anyway, it’s entirely possible they were full of shit). In any case, we’ve all definitely heard the story of the Ultimatum from somewhere.
