'The true Soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because He loves what is behind him.' -G. K. Chesterton

Go visit Gaius and watch all these videos and bask in their brilliant warm glow.
Thanks to Magic Negro Watch and The Black Sphere. They are truly worthy of the admiration of The Warrior Class.

Kevin and Gaius. As The Six I am allowed, nay encouraged, to hand out citations and laudations where deserved and when so moved. I am so moved.


Attention To Orders:

Gaius Lawrenitis Negris and Kevin Jackson.
Be it known that for actions above and beyond the call of duty in direct action against the enemies of America you are hereby awarded the Distinguished Blogging Cross, First Class
And further
I hereby confer upon you the title of True American Warriors.

You may now be suitably impressed. This citation may be framed for the benefit of future descendants that they may know of your awesomeness.

Welcome to The Brotherhood (I know, Gaius was Air Force. But We will not hold that against him for He seems to have risen above his spotty past. Right Ed???)
First beer's on me.

The Six

Hand salute!

And what's that AF crack? We tend to be well ahead of the armor and beyond the reach of artillery. We battle alone like knights of old and we kill the enemy in greater numbers than the bravest of the brave leading the infantry charge. Then we come home to cheap whisky and beautiful women to sleep in air conditioned comfort until mounting our steeds for individual combat the next time.

We also respond to frantic calls for close air support with massive firepower and precision whenever you need us.

At ease.

Mmmm. Cheap women and beautiful whiskey.

Close Air Support covereth a multitude of sins. Not that any ground pounder commander ever makes mistakes. Nope. Nope. That screaming you hear on the radio is just our manly war cry.

I swear.

Well, whether cheap or beautiful, I'm partial to women and whisky.

As for mistakes, I've never had any ground commander demand his money back. I'll also claim the dubious and distinctly unpleasant experience of a couple of years as Brigade ALO for 2nd Bde/4th ID (mech). You guys sure know how to make life painful.
