Have you noticed my location?
Living the legend with the 1st Cav for the last 8+ years... after two long years of AIT and DLI. Now I'm the cranky HUMINT platoon sergeant on FOB Warhorse. Most people find it hilarious that I have gone from being the FNG straight out of school to being the platoon sergeant in the same platoon without ever leaving.
The problem with being around such specialized and high-demand troops is you get stuck with the menial jobs... like manning the M2 on one of the gun trucks for patrols.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” - Samuel Adams
