Ah, the joys of redeployment. There’s always a Marine who attempts to fit an entire 7-ton truck’s worth of garbage into his sea bag. These articles range from the unused detritus of care packages; seven months of PX truck purchases including DVDs, tattoo magazines, and workout supplements; and finally a host of miscellaneous crap the Marine insists is a “war trophy.”
The mere thought of reckless, alcohol fueled, post-deployment chainsaw madness in the barracks is enough to give the most hardened company 1stSgt the chills.
Leaders, to prevent barracks chainsaw madness, remain vigilant and engaged. You never know when you might catch a Marine trying to shoehorn a flame thrower into his pack.
