Our DIs frequently referred to Pvt.Joe S**t the Ragman. In his case, I doubt that making rank would have helped.
Seaman Guzzler! Wow! I don't think I would have joined the navy!Major Dick's , Airman CENSOREDGI (with the fancy french hyphen over the i I believe) and Seaman Guzzler (she was cute. saw her in the services school at Lackland)
In mos school (or I think it was in school, things get muddled over time) there was this guy named Major, not sure if he ever reached Sgt. There was also a guy named Marines, his name tape sequence was interesting.we had a sergent sergent who later became a major sergent. I also knew a seman salior and a seman gozler
I was deployed with my unit and had to do duty at the DFAC at our camp for a week, sitting at the door after the sinks, clicking a counter to count patrons and turning away people in dirty PT gear or who were attempting to bring backpacks into the DFAC, that kind of stuff.A CPT Frank Burns was in IOAC with me.
Back to velcro nametapes, I saw the name "Hercules" on a troop. He looked like the before pic in one of those old Charles Atlas ads: 5-nothin' and 90 pounds soaking wet. I asked to see his ID.
Or at the very least, busted my tail and made Third Class Petty Officer as fast as humanly possible.Seaman Guzzler! Wow! I don't think I would have joined the navy!
That's just funny!
