Scorpion In Your Tent

Scorpion In Your Tent

A man was conducting an All Service member briefing one day, and he posed the question: “What would you do if you found a scorpion in your tent?”

A Sailor said, “I’d step on it.”

A Soldier said, “I’d hit it with my boot.”

A Marine said, “I’d catch it, break the stinger off, and eat it.”

An Airman said, “I’d call room service and find out why there’s a damn tent in my room.”

    During Desert Shield/Desert Storm we were required to dig defensive positions near out work stations. At one site about four feet down in the sand I discovered a scorion that was alive and well it was black and 4 to 5 inches long and after showing it around on a shovel blade. I regret that I killed it. It was not bothering anyone 4 feet under the sand.

    A FRIEND GAVE ME A SHOWER CURTAIN IT HAD SKULL WITH A HELMET ON HIS HEAD “USMC WE FIGHT FIGHT WHAT YOU FEAR. BUT A MONTH LATER I NOTICE A PRINT THAT WAS COVERED BY THE SKULL AND IT SAYS “ARMY UNIVERSE”. IF GOT THIS FROM SOMEBODY ELSE I WOULD OF TRASH THAT THING.

    Wholeheartedly agree. Kaepernick doesn’t know the first thing about sacrifice!

    You need to get rid of the Nike branded products. An insult to all Marines!
