Be careful what you tell your kids

| April 6, 2012

ROS sent us a Facebook link to this letter that a little girl sent to deployed sailors. Since many of you are sociopaths who don’t do Facebook, I thought I’d drop it off for you here.

Oh, put down your beverage before you read.

    Ahhh…the brutal honesty of children.

  2. MSgt B says:

    I’m speechless.
    There is so much WIN in that letter.

    Those gaddamn Marines.

  3. Old Tanker says:

    There’s no doubt her Daddy is a Marine!

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh myyyyyyyyyyyyy. I almost went on my back and did the “dead bug” here at work while laughing. That kinda sorta makes up for seing General Disarray’s photo.

    I’ll grant that this might be the product of the highly creative mind of a fellow Marine. Then again, it’s likely that only a kid would think of drawing a Christmas tree as letterhead.

  5. Marine_7002 #4: Little girls and Marines have a lot in common it seems.

  6. Hondo says:

    Thanks for the beverage warning, Jonn. Truly necessary with this one.

    Holy Moly! LOL!!!

  8. NHSparky says:

    Someone should tell that little girl that the only reason Marines are on ships is because sheep are too obvious.

  9. Crucible says:

    Yes, Marines are a department of the Navy-the MEN’S department .

    That said, I find this letter so stunning as to not be believed, so I raise the BS fake flag.

  10. Marine_7002 says:

    @8 Sparky: a chief once told me that the problem with Marines and sheep was the odor. He paused and then said, “Ain’t saying WHOSE odor!”

  11. NHSparky says:

    Then again, Marine, you know the difference between a WAVE and an elephant? Five pounds. Know how to compensate? Force feed the elephant.

    I will give the Marines credit for one thing, though. Female Marines are either uber-hawt or uber-buttfuckinugly, and there really ain’t no in-between.

  12. Instinct says:

    I am a former sailor, and that shit is funny.

    We did have this one WAVE in a training squadron (speaking of elephants) who went into labor in the hanger bay. Thing was, she was so fat she didn’t even realize she was pregnant.

    Yeah, it was that fucked up.

  13. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    Sparky, unfortunately you are sooo right. Fortunately for me I dated one of the uber cute BAMs who was at “Remington Raider U” at Camp Del Mar at Camp Pendleton! My Skipper put the kabosh on it because I was a Cpl n she was a PFC.

    Words fail me, as one who did a tour in a seagoing MarDet aboard a carrier I concur with the father and all comments. The back and forth between us and the sailors was truly memorable. The best part was forming a ships landing company, and all the squadrons and divisions sending us their shitbirds. Taking them into the jungle in PI for 2-3 days was a sight to behold.

  15. Instinct says:

    #14 – We had a guy in my squadron we sent for shit like that. He one time fell because he tripped over a weld mark in the deck. Worst part is that he cut his face up because he forgot his right hand wasn’t carrying anything.

    Kinda wish they had lost him out there.

  16. Hondo says:

    I have to say that this brings to mind this purported child’s note from a few years ago:

  17. malclave says:

    Love the smily face at the bottom of the letter. Reminds me of “Airplane” when they talk about blowing the automatic pilot.

  18. harold says:

    My sides hurt from laughing so hard.

    A Marine and a Sailor were standing at the urinels in the Men’s Room at the airport when a young boy walks in. The kid walks up to the Marine and says “Gee mister, are you a Marine?”. The Marine smiles and says “Sure am sonny… Want to wear my hat?”. The kid’s face lights up and, smiling ear to ear, he says “Sure!!”. The Marine puts his hat on the kid’s head and the boy goes to the mirror to admire himself. Then the boy notices the Sailor still standing at the urinal. He walks up to the Squid and says “Gee mister, are you a Sailor??”

    The Sailor glares at the little pest and growls, “Jesus kid, what the Hell are you? Some kind of pervert who likes to look at other guy’s dicks??”. The kid’s eyes go wide and he starts shaking his head “Oh No Mister! I’m not a Marine, I’m just wearing his hat!!!”.

    @19 Ray: phhhhhhhhhhhhttttttttttttt!

    LOL hadn’t heard that one before.
