Hey kid, 18X,
How does it feel knowing that your name is now out there?

Did you start to sweat as soon as you saw it?

Did you automatically realize how screwed you were?

I am just curious. I am taking a stress management class, and I wondered what exactly the physiological symptoms you experienced at that specific instant.

I know I fucked up. I pissed a lot of people off, and no matter what I say I'm sure I'll fuck it up even more. So I'm just going to stop visiting this site so I can quit monkey-stomping on my dick. Other than my last fuck-up this was a good site with a lot of info on it. Thanks for the previous advice and I'm positive I'll catch shit for my comments. I'm out.

It's not just the comments you made on the site, dude. You (intentionally or not) insulted a lot of Paratroopers. Quite frankly, I hope that you do well. Good luck with whatever happens.

I guess effective communication skills are no longer taught in the Q?

SF soldiers are called "Quiet Professionals" for a reason, Mr. XXXXXXX.

Owned.....

Oh I think you went way beyond just fucking up. You brought a knife to a gun fight. Hopefully someone will pass this post on to your future platoon sergeant in the 82nd.

Looks like I've got his rank, unit and even a phone # now, but it appears he's learned his lesson... ?

They're the "Quiet Professionals," John, "Quiet Professionals."

This is one of the most interesting threads I've seen in ages. I'm going to copy it show it to some active duty guys. I'd like their take on this.

Wouldn't it suck if that wasn't his name....and some other poor motherfucker was going to get ass-raped over this.

I think if that happened, and I was that guy, I would just go ahead and change my last name to Murphy.

I hope we have the right man.

Your life in the Army will soon become much more difficult than it had to be and when that happens, please feel free to send me a thank you card.

That is probably the most lucid post you've had so far.

Alright, take the hit(s) and drive on.

A great ending...

...to a great day!

Awesome thread! It covered the bases from dingus stomping to violent and focused return fire all the way to pseudo redemption.

Whew!

Good luck, 18Xrecruit -- this seems like a (hard) lesson learned on your part. At least you'll never have to worry about arriving --anywhere-- unnoticed

I want it to be known that John brought this upon himself by publically posting his e-mail address in the first place. Had he not have done that, his ID never would have been disclosed.

Based on your PM, C-M-R, be sure to revise your printed copy, so that those who read know where to properly place blame.

A Public Apology

I'd like to apologize to Tracy, Guy, and other SF BTDT for my dispostion in this thread. I was wrong and my posts reflected that.

However, there are reasons for me thinking differently than say Tracy or Guy even though that's not an excuse for behaving badly. Here are a couple of thoughts for the differences in my thinking -

Several of the younger members of my family are serving or have served in the military, two of my brothers, two of my brothers-in-law, and, of course, my husband. At various times the younger members needed guidance for one reason or another and the older guys provided it. They did so as Uncles, and Fathers, but also as military personnel with a stake in seeing the soldiers and sailors coming up behind them succeed.

It was with the way they have done things in mind that I read this thread. What I didn't take into account was 1.no one here is related to the poster in question. 2. In the real world my family members were quite likely treated much differently by outsiders than they were by people to whom they are related - not that I ever saw treatment of them at the hands of strangers, and I've asked myself if I would have interceded had I done so. The answer is no I would not have. Therefore, to have done in this thread for a stranger what I would not have done in real life for a family member was wrong.

So gentlemen, you have my apologies. I hope you will accept them.
