Well today is a great day for the Marine Corps. My buddy and fellow coworker was promoted to Master gunnery sergeant. The highest rank obtainable for an enlisted man. If anybody truly deserved it, He is Da Man to get it. In his entire 20+ year career he has never written papers on anybody. They have suffered the wrath of Hell but never had to get office hours or NJP'ed. Unfortunately it comes with a price. He will no longer be our maintenance chief and he is getting orders to Japan, Unaccompanied. Which means he has to leave his family here for 2 years while he goes and plays overseas..
Its going to be a GREAT WET DOWN tonight.
