  •  I went through ROTC with a similar bunch. (5+ / 0-)

    See, I'm a woman and these guys thought military service was a boy's club.  No girls allowed.  

    They play pretty rough sometimes.  For instance, in JROTC, one of them once tried to slash my face with a rifle's sight blade.  But one of our cadre, a Command Sergeant Major (with a shitload of real decorations on his chest), saw what he was trying to do and gave him the longest, most frightening glare.  This scared the asshole so much he about wet his pants.  Anyway, this punk ended up going to West Point.  And I heard from an illustrious West Point grad that the place is pretty good at attitude readjustment.

    These Dominionists are just a bunch of bullies.  Once a colonel or above lets him know he's got him in his sights, I'm sure this young officer will straighten up real fast.  

    Quinctilius Varus, give me back my legions.

      Well, a shitstorm like this ought to make sure he never makes Lt. Col.  I'm sure it will weigh heavily on his next assignment, too--that is, if they can find anything worse than Iraq.
