” That’s a new directive from the Pentagon. That’s right out of G2 and G3 making a G5 Combined Officers Op-Tech Glitch. We’re experimenting with a new rank: Major First Class. We’re down here taking a survey, to see, uh, you know, if everybody likes it, uh, asking everybody in Seoul. ”
Does he have an ear ring in!? You’d think a Major First Class, particularly one assigned to a Hero Squad like the Marine Counter Terrorist outfit would know better about jewelry… It could get caught on something while exiting the super stealth Blackhawks.
Devtun: the US Navy also had Commodore as a 1-star rank during World War II. However, by 1947 all had either been promoted to RADM or had left the service.
Another point of trivia: the term “Major General” derived from an older term for the same rank (one rank lower than Lieutenant General): “Sergeant Major General”. Over time and with the adoption of the position “Sergeant Major” in units not commanded by GOs, the term “Sergeant” was dropped from the GO rank title. This led to the apparent logical rank inversion in GO ranks – a Major outranks a Lieutenant, but a Major General is outranked by a Lieutenant General.
Fats McTits here probably fell out soon after having to stand getting this picture taken. Those are the new marsoc earings which reduce drag making for higher speed low drag operators able to deploy from the stratosphere.
Now maybe I’m slow because I’m a squid and all, but when did the Marines start wearing black undershirts with bacon collars? Also, WTF is up with his cover??? Did he jam that thing all the way down on his fat blob of a head?
Jeebus!!! This is why I only use the terminal rank from my less than stellar military career in a InterTubes screen name. Most of my career was spent preparing for the Great Fulda Gap Live-Fire Exercise that was cancelled in 1989.
I really don’t want any real heroes linking me with one of these asshats.
Sorry I came late in the day to this one.
‘Bout fell out of my chair laughing out loud.
Major First Class . . . First Class idiot.
He may not be a winner in the BallDuster McSoulPatch tourney, but you just KNOW he’s going to be right up there in the finals.
Anyone know this asstard’s real name and addy, so that a REAL man can go and have a little heart-to-heart (wall-to-wall) counseling with this whatever it is??
Have been following for awhile but haven’t felt I should say anything but this is one that just has to be commented about after I cleaned off the tablet.
1) Where did the Emblem on the ID Card come from because I’m 62 and can’t remember when the reference to the Navy was removed from the Marine Emblem on their ID Card. Also, is the Marine Emblem suppose to be sort of oblong.? I always have seen it Round.
2) The shirt looks as if it has been button wrong…one side higher than the other. My First-Cousin learned in boot with a Drill Instructor screaming in one ear how to dress properly in a uniform.
3) When was the last time that “blouse” saw or felt a hot steam iron. That First-Cousin loomed over me when I offered to press his trousers before we went to the movies. (He was 19 and I was 15.) His instructions were as if both his Drill Instructors would come busting through the door at any moment….. memories…. smile
4) Looks as if there is something in the right ear lobe…check it out
@45…The head cover looks like a hunting (as in deer hunting) watch cap because I don’t see a brim over his glasses.
