Terminal Lance #284 “Gear Accountability”
August 6, 2013
Boots do amazing things. They aren’t particularly positive in their implications, but they do amazing things nonetheless. When I was at SOI, I remember seeing my “libo-buddy” lose his flak jacket on a 5k hump from the barracks to the range. There were hundreds of Marines, safety vehicles, Staff NCO’s, officers, and somehow this guy lost his entire flak jacket during the movement. He wasn’t in the rear either, he was in the middle of the formation. I’ll admit–like any Marine–I have lost my fair share of random shit, but never anything like this.
I once had a boot I was temporarily in charge of permanently injure his knee while sleeping. Yes, this happened. He was in the top rack and rolled out of bed, in the barracks, at 4am. As my drill instructors always said, something about those yellow footprints just sucks the common sense out of you–and you usually don’t get it back til after your first deployment.
In Kickstarter news, we’re nearing the end of The White Donkey campaign! As of writing, there’s 5 days left and we’re just over $133,400! I’ve said it a million times now, but holy shit.
I’m in talks with many different people to produce a lot of awesome stuff once this campaign is over, so stick around for that. We’re coming dangerously close to the next stretch goal, I have something in mind for $150,000 as well; lets see how far we can go!
On a side note, if you’re a person that rents out apartments or houses and you don’t allow pets over 20 lbs, go fuck yourself.
