Terminal Lance #361 “That Guy II”
January 13, 2015
That guy is back at it again. Well, that’s slightly incorrect, because he never actually left.
You see, that guy perpetually exists in every platoon, squad or team. He’s the one that just can’t seem to get it right. He’s the guy that fucks everything up for everyone and drags the rest of the normal guys down. There’s nothing he can do about it… there’s nothing you can do about it… he’s just always going to be there. Remember the next time you have some kind of awful 4 hour safety brief about something you’ve never even considered to be a real problem.
That brief exists for a reason.
That brief exists because of that guy.
Every time you have a packing list, a gear inspection, field day, a long liberty brief (the list goes on); just remember that he’s the reason you’re there.
He’s that guy.
In other news, last night I was able to attend a late screening of American Sniper in San Francisco; hence the late update today. I’ll be posting a full review later after I’ve been able to really gather my thoughts on it. Simply put, it is a good film. It’s an emotional barrage of well-paced action ladened with bits of home and suffering.
