Good God WHY?!?!?!?!

No this is isn't about anything Congress did. As most of you know, I attended VMI and as a result of this marched in every parade for 4 years except for 1. I thought I was done with that.

Oh no.

Today I got to march in another one as the S3 for my battalion at the Post Retirement ceremony. This is done to honor soldiers who are retiring so its a good cause. But it still sucks to do. Especially since our post commander can't give a short speech (30 minutes long, and bad jokes to boot).

Ever stand at parade rest for 60 minutes? "Blows" doesn't get it.


  1. Perfect on parade mister!

    Because this isn't a family friendly forum I expect cussing next.

  2. Could be. We had 9 privates drop this morning. We would have been good IF the general had kept his speech under 30 minutes.

  3. Actually, I have done that. Yeah, it blows...
