Recently retired after 28 years.

I was a Private/E-1 and we were out on a 42-day Field Training Exercise in Hohenfels, Germany, and my Squad Leader kept saying "Where the **** is my Squelch Oil?" while he was pulling everything out of his Ruck Sack and his Duffel Bag. He then asked my Team Leader if he brought any Squelch Oil and he said "No, You said you were bringing it!!" Then my Squad Leader was in a panic saying he forgot the Squelch Oil!!" At that point, my Team Leader said "While he is putting all his **** back in his bags, go down to the Motor Pool and ask the Motor Pool NCOIC if you could draw a whole case of Squelch Oil and issue it to the Platoon. So I did. Motor Pool NCOIC said he could, but only if approved by the First Sergeant. He picked up the phone and called the First Sergeant and the First Sergeant wasn't in. So he sent me to where the First Sergeant was and stand by. I was standing at Parade rest for about 20 minutes until the First Sergeant was available. When he called me into his Office, I didn't get beyond "First Sergeant, Sergeant Johnson forgot his Squelch Oil and....." the First Sergeant started laughing. At that point. I asked the First Sergeant "Is this one of those tasks where they are ******* with you?" He just kept laughing and asked "How long you been looking for Squelch Oil?" I said "For about two hours." When I got back to the tent, everyone was laughing at me. The *******. Hahahaha

Lets see, 25 yards of flight line, a can of K9P, a 55 Gal drum of rotor wash, just a few that I remember.

We did something similar. Sent a new guy over to another building to get a ID10T form. While he was enroute we called over there and those fuggers actually created one and sent him back with it.

When I was PL in Korea (Camp Colburn C Co, 204th Sig Bn, 1st Signal Brigade...since returned to ROKs), the new arrivals were always told they had to learn how to properly collect and tag exhaust samples from each vehicle. I'm standing with my Company CO discussing something when the Battalion XO decided to join in. Mind you, he hated Lieutenants and especially me since I found a pic of him as a butter bar which got displayed during a hail and farewell event.

then FNG Private Whatshisnuts comes running by with two 4 trash bags filled with air, he puts tags on them, labels each bag, and puts them in a pile. Right in front of this ******** major. He asks, "Lieutenat B, what the **** was that?"

"That, sir? The new Private is undergoing training to properrly collect exahaust samples for the Battalion Maintenance Officer."
"Cpt. Wood, I want to see you and LT B. in my office standing at attention in 15 mics."

So, we went, got our asses chewed, and the CCompany Commander said the way i nonchalantly answered what the PVT was doing was priceless. So instead of getting wrote up like the XO demanded, he faked chewing my *** out with the XO looking through the window. The yelling went like this (he's pounding the desk with his fist real hard, too):

"God dammit, John. That's the funniest **** I've seen in a long time. You don't deserve anything less than a cold beer for that which i will buy this friday after close of business. Tell the other LTs we are meeting at Rock N Roll Club in Itaewon 2000hrs Friday night and all the beer is on me. Now get out of here, hang your head, apologize to the XO, and look sad!" Yeah, he blatantly stole part of that from Jeff Foxworthy, but man, the LT Mafia put that event into the history books.

I had to do a TDY on the USS Blue Ridge one year to fix a satellite issue. 13 year old documented problem, and it took me and the NCO I picked 36 hours to check all cconfigs and trace the problem to one 50-pin cable that two pins on the distant end connecting to the router backwards. Anyway, the N6 and his Senior Chief decided to **** with me as we got underway. They said I needed to get a request chit signed to blow the MPA for safety reasons before we could get working on the equipment for safety reasons. I delegated that task to the SSG who knew nothing off that joke.

He comes back two hours later and I asked if the request was approved.

"Sir, that's fucked up. He approved it and dropped his pants. I guess it's not safe to work because the MPA ain't getting blown."

The squids were surprised I new that joke and it was the subject of conversation for a couple of meals in the Admiral's Flag Mess.

We used to like getting the new soldiers to ask the Platoon Sargeant where the PRC-E7 (***** E 7) was so comms could be set up. The fallout was always funny and Platoon Daddy always went along with it

Airplanes were cranking up out on the flightline. Noisy Phantoms. I sent one FNG over to Unit Supply to get a 'Sound Barrier'. I found him later in the beer garden. Wise ***.

Yeah. Later he went to OTS and became an O-club specialist and was promoted to Major. But he finished. Somewhat.
