    That doesn't sound half as bad as all the shit I'll have to go through over the next year.

    Try deploying as Army National Guard through Fort Motherfucking McCoy, Wisconsin. :ugh:

    18-20 hour days. The absolute shittiest DFACs that I have every seen. In my life. The DFAC serving/cleanup crew actually looked like they were on some kind of work release from a local prison. I was sick as a dog every day that we stayed in the WWII era barracks. The sickness only lifted when we moved from the barracks to the tents. And we were treated like we were in basic training for the entire fucking 2+ months that we were there.

    cliffs: pitty me, bitch :madfawk:

    ha old man I bet you still got there faster, I mean it sure did suck going over to the box from florida but it was basically constant movement, not being stuck in places for god knows how long

    granted yea im in germany for 3 days, I ve been there enough, I dont speak german so going around is going to be a pain in my anus

    I could be at home chilling with my lady and friends instead of there for 3 days

    deployments are always fun, but getting there usually sucks
