Scott Thomas: "Toungue" in Cheek

Where there is no vision, the people perish:

My experience in the Army so far has been a lot like war: long doldrums of boredom intermixed with drunken whirlwind weekends of hanky panky and martini politics...both also lead to anguish and permanent emotional scars. I was invited to participate in the Green to Gold (ROTC) program at SIU-Carbondale, and I started my application packet today. I doubt that I'll get a scholarship due to my lackluster GPA, but at least I'll be coming home and going to school. My goal is to become an incompetent leader that gets fragged by 30 something NCO's at a forward operating base in Sadr City. Heres to the memories and stardust kid.

love, Scott

Just in case you doubted the motivation.

H/t Michelle.

Well, if his account of things is to be believed he has already shown himself that he already knows how to be an incompetent leader by not only witnessing, but participating (actively or passively) in some unethical and dangerous activities without the slightest reproach of himself or others around him.

Consider yourself successful in part I of your goal.

He is a PV2 after two-three years in the Army?
Do we hear 'issues' boys and girls?

Best of luck on your career goals, Scott. You deserve nothing more.

The system is working. Something to be said for that.

OK, that was funny.

I am about to cook myself a huge, honking steak.

Because I'm feeling massively sorry for myself. With asparagus. And a nice spinach salad. And tomatoes.

I want tomatoes. And fresh mushrooms too.

Look at this comment he left on his site or whatever.

If you really want to support your country and the war effort...in a word, the troops...then you'll die of a heroin overdose if I have a coming home party. If I come home.

Somebody needs to slap this boy upside the head and tell him that he too is mortal and can feel pain. What pain you ask? Best folks not know about that.

I saw that this morning.

I just did not know what to make of it. It was so outside my experience.

What exactly does a Cheese Danish Bikini look like?

Posted by: Ymarsakar at July 26, 2007 06:39 PM

I don't know. I always nibble away at it before I can get to a mirror.
