Discharged with hashmarks and no chevrons, hence no good cookie.
If you haven’t lost rank at least once, I’m not sure you are considered a fully qualified Marine…

I got an sumerized article 15. A month later got a good conduct medal. My CO and 1st SGT. Realized the Article 15 was BS.

I was waiting for a punchline in that story, like the guy that entered was the waitress's long lost boyfriend or something.

Oh well. Semper Fi.

Can I get you a box of crayons?

I also didn't quite get the point of the story. I read it three times tying to figure out why the alleged Marine assaulted a patron entering the establishment coincidentally with a waitress dropping a tray. I would have guessed "PTSD" but the alleged Marine in the story had supposedly never done anything more scary than going to the range.

So, without further context, the story reads to me from the perspective of the young man, "So, I'm a good looking man in my early 20's and I decided to go to the local diner. As I walk through the door, Mary, the waitress I've known for 3 yeas, saw me and got distracted then dropped her tray. It happens. Normally, we just clap and she gets a little embarrassed. But this time, some really old dude who I've never seen before, jumped up and screamed something about 'holes!' Then this wild-eyed lunatic, spittle flying from his mouth, jammed a fork (of all things) into my neck. Well, I looked at him like he was an idiot. He's obviously off his meds. After, he was kinda preening himself and mumbling something about 'marines'. I'm just glad he didn't babble something about 'Trump' because we don't need that kinda publicity."

Which, I'm guessing, was supposed to be the joke? Maybe?

Peace favor your sword,

Did y'all not read the last line of the story about seeing a truck in USMC gear and treading lightly to save your own life?

The "joke" was the entire story. It was a try hard bragging about being a try hard. Moonz made it actually funny by implying I was said try hard.

I know I'm just a dumb grunt, but I got the point...

Thank God it wasn't a butter bar joke...

I’m with Kirk, didn’t quite follow. Was the guy entering the restaurant a threat? Was he carrying a weapon when he walked in? Or was it a ptsd moment due to the waitress dropping her tray? So many questions…

Y'all probably think that poor thief tripped and fell off the curb after messing with the Marines at the Toys For Tots drop off too, huh?

🤦‍♂️

When you have a Marine sleeping in your guest bedroom and he warns you about "bad dreams", you definitely take heed o_O
So did you coat yourself in honey and soothe him back to sleep. Or just randomly hit the wall and scream.
