It’s not his fault, Staff NCO’s actually naturally communicate at higher decibel levels.
They say the loudest weapon organic to the infantry is the SMAW rocket launcher, but that’s only sort of true. The standard issue Staff NCO actually has a natural speaking voice louder than the Assaultman MOS classic, but he’s not classified as a “weapon” technically (though his knife-hands actually are). If there’s one thing to be said about the Marine Corps in general, it’s that yelling in general is some pretty common shit. In boot camp, you actually get so used to people just screaming in your face for no apparent reason that you become pretty desensitized to it by the time you leave the Depot.
I apologize for the recycled comic (if you read the Marine Corps Times, anyway), it’s just been a crazy busy last couple of weeks with the book launch and everything going on around here. Hopefully things will calm down after this weekend.
Speaking of this weekend, I will be at Hi De Ho Comics in Santa Monica on Saturday at 7pm! There’s a special VIP hour for Kickstarter backers only starting at 6pm, so come by and say hi!
