Went TDY to savannah back in August where our flight really ****ed up. Had 6 of our guys (out of 20 who came) get sent back on a Greyhound. Reasons? 4 cases of ****ing married people (one of those cases were between my buddy from BMT, who was a Staff, ****ing the A1C on his shift), and 2 cases of ARI's, well, same case, just two people...one of whom was driving the GOV in the town. So what did I do? I remade the TDY patch. It was called Operation Southern Fury. I changed it to this;
I had found out I passed the WAPS test while in Savannah, and this image somehow made the rounds via phone...it got to people back here at Langley, and one guy (who was cool before he made staff...) immediately went to the first shirt, whom went to the commander. Then the CO sent a message to our lead in savannah, cussing and pissed off and wanting the neck of whoever made it. Keep in mind this is all within 24hrs. Our lead knew it was me, warned me about it...so I said **** it and called our shop back at home station and fessed up. Came back from TDY, went to see the CO in blues expecting to be hemmed up. He completely caught me off guard and had a little chat. Then we had a roll call the following week and he showed it on the big screen. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. We had an LCAP inspection and scored the highest in the history of the LCAP since it was revamped (beating our own record). He named out shops who didn't get any write ups. He saved us for last...but before he named our shop he popped it back on the screen. This patch has become my legacy at Langley.
PCSing to Tyndall in a week. Unfortunately we (military) are replacing contractors. Those civvies ****ed our jets up...and their (for lack of a better term) 'stealth ratings' are off the ****ing charts. So I am walking into 60-70hr weeks for probably the next 3yrs. Oh yea, I also reenlisted.
NE- I had lost your flashlight in my apartment...I just found it in my closet. I am so ****ing sorry! I feels bad. I'll add something to your package when I send it back (after I PCS) to make it worth your while.
Oh...HAAAAAIIII. Haven't 'balled in a year.
