Shit, while doing shuttle runs (C-130 flight crew) like foward deploying units to different FOB’s or taking folks back for some R&R, we always had a rule. Before we let anyone in the cargo compartment to be crammed in like sardines, the pilot always had the Flight Engineer talk to the troop leader to find out if there were any females in their unit so they can put them up in the flight deck. One conversation went like this, “Hey Sarge, do you have any females with your unit? Doesn’t matter if they are hot or ugly, but preferably hot. If you don’t have any, then send us your units pretty boy.” The Sarge just stared for a moment, shook his head then turned around and yelled,”HEY PRETTY BOY, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GET TO RIDE UP FRONT TODAY.” Without missing a beat, some young PFC came running up with the biggest grin like he just found a bag of dicks.
