The e-Gauntlet Has Been Thrown!

May of 2010 was a busy month to say the least. Amid the fury of various exercises, security missions, and training ranges was the particularly memorable experience of Lt Navel Lint, who has forever sullied my opinion of Navy 03s. The very next week I was in the NEX when out of the corner of my eye I noticed another Navy Lt sashay up and down the DVD aisle. As he turned my way I feigned interest in some random selection of movies. His pace slowed when he fixed his big doe eyes on me in slack jawed fascination. Clenching my teeth I turned to glare in his direction and render the proper greeting of the day. With an anxious shift of his feet he bolted to through electronics towards women’s lingerie before I could even open my mouth.
Later, I visited some of my Marines selling unit t-shirts and coins in the passageway downstairs. I asked the men how business was going and they told me about another Navy 03 they had just fleeced. Seems he wanted a double XL for a night shirt to sleep in and they convinced him to buy a coin too. Well done lads.
Over a year later and I saw this outrageous article.  After being stationed elsewhere, our Naval Officer from the NEX has decided to electronically confront America’s 1stSgt with his grievances/man crush.

Am I the only one who longs for the good old days when Marines and Sailors simply fought in bars?

  1. If you like, I can send you my wife Gilmore Girls 1Sgt.

    Just kidding, i am sure you were doing some recon for a friend right?

    So where can one get a FAST company t-shirt?

  2. Ah, the other side of the story. Double XL? Women’s lingerie? I don’t know who to respect more. The cross dressing O-3 or the Gilmore Girl wannabe.

  3. I want one of those t-shirts, too! If you can figure out a way to sell them online your Marines could raise some extra dough.
    If you use PayPal, remember to add the cost of their fees to the selling price and shipping fees so you don’t lose money.

  4. With a friends memorial service, this is a tough week. The mental picture of America’s 1st Sgt as a Ninja Zombie Killing Marine Gilmore Girl will probably get me through the week.

    I think I need a brownie. =]

    Standing by for shirt info…..

  5. Hey America’s 1st Sergeant,

    We should get a cut of all the shirts you sell. After all, the Mellow Jihadi has been driving your sales.

    Speaking of shirts, we ran out of our Gilmore Girls ones. I know you have a big stash. Can you send a couple our way?
