Our Reserve unit deployed in 2003 and 2008. Both times, the unit had two 15 pax vans at our disposal. Our unit was a Theater Opening Element so we had a large number of officers. Some of the characters we had was a Major who always could recite a Monte Python script to fit a situation, a Lieutenant Col who could do the same only using SouthPark quotes. We would pile in the van at the end of the day and review the days antics. Officers let their guard down in the Van. In 2003, our Reserve unit was mobilized and ordered to Ft Stewart for mobilization training. Some of the funny things that happened was during our CTT training, we had a unit Chaplain (full Colonel) who had a glass eye. The CTT station was first aid. The instructor shouted incoming and everyone hit the deck to include the Chaplain (hats off to him for wanting to play the game). Upon hitting the ground, he got on his hands and knees. Turns out, his glass eye popped out and was lost in the grass. We all stopped the training to help him look for his eye. Later on our "posse" of Majors and Captains were "in the van" (a 15 pax), talking and laughing about the CTT training. As we were laughing about the CTT, I quipped,"We can now call COL G a "one eyed bishop"!. Another time our posse had to go off post to a coin laundry (we were Reserves, so we stayed in the WWII era open bay barracks with no washer). There was a lot of screwing around at the laundry mat, but the funniest thing was going back onto post. The post had contract cops on the gate and they looked bad ass, full battle rattle, weapons helmets etc. I'm a white guy driving the van and I realized I didnt have my ID, One of the guys in the back of the van passed his up and said, "use this". I showed the ID to the guard and he waved us on. Turns out, the ID was one of my Black friends! We all cracked up! When we deployed forward, we had an AGR Major (Gualy) who was from Puerto Rico, we couldnt understand a thing he said. Ironically, He would deliver the morning briefing to the Commander and would get crucified by the Colonel. (i.e Gualy would say "fries" instead of "flights". The Commander also from PR and well spoken would go ballistic. We would all go to the briefings just to watch the "sausage fest". Gualy also was caught by the Commander walking around the FOB with his MOPP gear in a pillow case. That didn't go well. Perhaps this can be an inspiration?
