There are scads of books written about military leadership, or act of heroism so great they are deserving of their own manuscript. This is not one of those books.
This book is about the moments that made us laugh along the way. These are the times that built morale, helped us cope, and otherwise helped make the in between times bearable.
Have you ever sent a brand new Private to the Supply Sergeant looking for dehydrated water, or a personalized body bag? We have.
Have you ever planned a prank that backfired? We have.
Have you ever put together a prank that took advanced planning, time, trouble, and precision to execute?
When that prank took place, did people have to leave the room because they were laughing too hard?
These are the stories of what happens when guys spend too much time together and start to act like, well, guys. These are the times we pranked someone with ether (the anesthetic), the times we made the new Private do things just to see if he would. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed living them.
