    Whenever someone fresh out of school, or new to the type of unit, new to the country shows up at your unit, you mess around with them a little. Anyone got good ones?

    -Sending a fresh pvt to get a box of grid squares from supply
    -Checking the thickness of the armor on tracked vehicles
    -Checking the muffler fluid
    -Sending them to get a muffler belt from the motor pool

    A marine I work with told me about how when new guys would show up in Thailand, they would tell them that initiation was having to eat the bananas that the juicy girls put up inside them. No one ever did it until one year when they had 3 new guys and they ate them and everybody was sitting there watching :eek4: amazed

    I once watched a buddy of mine 'instruct' a newjoin on the proper way to *recharge* a chemlight (involved cutting it open and holding a d battery between the cut-off end and the rest - on an unbroken chemlight of course). I'm still amazed to this day how serious a tone my buddy had while he was 'instructing'. The kid fell for it hook, line and sinker. It was a thing of beauty.

    Other fun things:
    Get the keys to the Humvee.
    Get 50 yards of flightline (for those on airwing bases).

    Another fun one was when (as MPs) we were showing newjoins around the base on our nightshift. The patrol sup took 3 of them in his cruiser out to the birdbath on the flightline (the automated contraption that sprays down aircraft like C130s). He told them that when he stopped, jump out and setup a perimeter around the car. They did as he said, and as soon as they were out and the doors shut, he locked the doors, rolled forward a foot, and triggered the birdbath. Woo! That was probably their funnest night of their tour there.

    Boom test - get a newbie to yell "boom" down the tail of a chopper to check for weak spots.

    Have them go get some rotor wash in fun also.

    At my current maintenance unit, I've had a few guys attempt to get synthetic blinker fluid and muffler bearings from parts before :big grin:

    An old landing support (shore party) prank for new joins is having them ground guide the ship into port on their first port operation.

    That's not really a prank, I'd put pinning in a catagory of its own. I've never been pinned for jump wings but we've got air deilvery in our company, I've heard some stories from some of them about being pinned. :bowdown:
