[size=small]If it’s called it a helicopter in the Air Force and a chopper in the Army, what do they call it in the Marines?

In the Navy it's a "Helo"!

Prolly better off telling funny storys of our service...

Well the pilots of the choppers were always trying to get a rush from their flying and showing off their guts and skills, having rotated out of the Nam regular duty must have been boring as hell to them. Needing to log flight hours just to stay qualified, there was alot of joy rides seemingly without purpose. Or to far off small airfields just for lunch and letter deliverys.
Anyhow, this one particular hot shot liked to hunt deer, with the landing gear by chasing the deer and knocking one off by impact! He finally did some damage on one run, to the thin skined aluminum panels before he quite the practice... There were a lot of cowboys amongst these hot shots but they definately had some skills and would give you the ride of your life!!!




This one warrent officer liked to go hunting, yes with our UH-1D

Army, Infantry officer (11A), 2003-2006.

Korea - First and last duty station. Had a great time even though the winters sucked, the summers sucked even more, and you could die if you inhaled enough dirt kicked up from running around in the training areas.

Sorry Jarheads...

I can admit that MARINES rarely use proper nomenclature (we call Humvees "Jeeps") but the Army issues pre-loaded magazines. Do they really think these guys can't load a mag?
How about the color-coded safeties.

ARMY-inventors of the 3-shot burst and pre-paid calling cards.

All the NAVY jokes are really dirty.

Hey I was in the NAVY and learned:

Never Again Volunteer Yourself.

My favorite was sending someone to the Bosuns' locker for about 40 feet of "shore line" or a small tub of "relative Bearing Grease"!

^ Oh yeah, that reminds me of the initiation of the newbees in Army Aviation, sent to source out the urgently needed "prop wash" and their going from one department to the next and being refered on to the next in search of this hard to come by "prop wash", until they realize on their own and remember 'prop wash' is the air that eddys from the rotors....

The shore line was in the same vane as the metric crescent wrench, left turn phillips, etc.

We had a couple of friends who came in under the buddy program. One of them was getting married so the friend got some of the enginemen to hold him down and used blue bearing grease on his privates. As you may or may not know, this is used to mark wear patterns in casings to repair bearings. This stuff will stay in your skin for many months.

We also had a real arse electrician 1st class who just busted everybody's chops. A bit of a heavy drinker. He would get so many gags pulled on him. Grease on the mouthpiece of the phone, etc. The best though was he would fall asleep at the desk. Someone wired a megger (voltage generator used to test cable insulation) between the chair back and arm rest(right arm). He got fired up pretty good. He came out of that chair looking for blood. I just ducked a punch while I was lmao.

I won't tell ...... yeah I will. We were in drydock so had been moved to the barracks for 6 mos. The ship had a softball team in the base league. The divers got the idea to kidnap the base marine's mascot bulldog. These guys were sick. For a day, they wore this poor dog out sexually. The jarheads knew they had him and pulled a full barracks inspection looking for him with no luck. The next day we were playing them and the guys released him at the game. The dog kept coming over to our side of the field cuz he was in love.

Fun times underway on a haze grey navy day.

Me and my ship, the USS Kitty Hawk, were back in the States in San Diego at the same time my little brothers' ship was in Long Beach.

As a matter of fact his ship, an Oiler, the USS Manatee, pumped us gas a few times during our WestPac deployment, but anyway we managed to get together for an afternoon and decided to play a dirty trick....on our Parents!

He made the call and as usual it was our Mom who answered at the other end. He talked for a bit and our Mom eventually handed the phone to our Dad at the same time as my Brother handed the phone to me. We cycled back and forth like that for a few minutes until our parents almost got into an argument on just which of us kids they were talking to!

Prop wash, yeah, we used to pull that one too.
One young man kind of beat us at the joke when he returned with a bucket of soap from the wash rack.
We were like, "uh thanks"?

There were some chemicals that we used in leak testing fuel bladder cells. One of them being phenolphthalein, the main ingredient in Ex-Lax.
If someone was being a real ass to us, sometimes a capful of that made it's way into his coffee.

We also had the new guys help us with the "echo test" on the jet engines.
They were told to repeatedly shout "testing" into the intake while we went to the rear of the engine to check for the echo. Of course you walked away leaving the newbie screaming at a jet while everyone watching on the flight line bust a gut laughing.
Ah, good old initiation rites. What fun.

That reminds me! Those tricks can backfire at that!

A shipmate actually asked one of the new guys who just got on board in San Diego to "get me forty feet of 'shore line'" and a few minutes later the kid called him over and said he didn't know how many feet it was, but handed him the phone.

He said "hello" and the voice answered: "Base operator; How may I help you Sir?"

....yeah; "Sir," only one kind of head on board ship in those days!
