His platoon was too ignorant to even have a proper blanket party for the snitch. Instead they left bruises. I thought everyone had seen "Full Metal Jacket".

We live not far from there, and while I am not fond of the area I feel obliged to tell you to GFY.

Why do people bother giving fake names to journalists? It's one thing to ask for anonymity. It's another to make shiat up, which then puts into question everything you're telling the journalists. Or is that the point?

Well the goverment,bugged the men's room
In the local disco lounge
All she wants to do is dance,dance
To keep the boys from selling
All the weapons they can scrounge
All she wants to do is dance
But that don't keep the boys
From making a buck or two
And all she wants to do is dance,dance
They still can sell the army
All the drugs that they can do
And all she wants to do is
All she wants to do is dance
And make romance

When I was in the Army I had a roommate who was a crackhead. He went to town one weekend and when they found him about a week later he was selling his arse for rock $$$.

He had a bleeding anal fissure and was hospitalized upon return to the base. He stayed there until his discharge shortly after.

From things I've heard from many friends of mine who are now vets, smoking hash isn't exactly uncommon in Afghanistan among our troops (as well as native Afghan forces, no matter which side they take), and I can't say I blame them at all.
 
2010-10-16 02:43:05 PM  
I can't belive we are mired down in that shiathole, fighting the same assholes that WE armed and trained to fight the Soviets. That fight lasted YEARS and the Soviets had to finally slink away, just like we're eventually going to have to do. Hell, if I was over there I'd be on heroin. I can't believe people SIGN UP for this shiat. Our nation has completely lost it's krafing mind.

I used to get 3 surprise piss tests a year, in the Marines, in the 90's.

There was even a designated "meat watcher" to make sure we weren't cheating.

Are they not doing this any more?

I'm going to choose to not believe it based on this one article.

Yep. As soon as I got promoted to E-5, my big present was becoming the new UPL: Unit (Drug) Prevention Leader, the guy who runs the piss tests.

We did tests about every other month, although we'd sometimes do them repeatedly, in case guys thought they'd be "safe" to do drugs until the next testing cycle. My job was go down to the Bio-Chemical Testing Lab, pick up the piss bottles, and the paperwork. Then hit the "randomizer" to spit out names, since we needed probable cause to target a specific individual. I was not the actual Meat Gazer, Pecker Checker, Beef Inspector, etc. to make sure guys weren't using someone else's clean piss. I simply gathered up the samples, checked the seals, maintained "the chain of custody" then dropped them off at the lab so they could mailed out to the testing facility, which I think was at Fort Sam Houston.

Then delivered the results to the CO. You do enough "random" tests and you'll eventually hit everyone. Plus Opiates tend to stay in their system for awhile, so I have no idea what the fark was going on at that unit.

/So glad when the next guy got promoted. The Passing of the Piss Bottle was a time-honored tradition.

It depends on the unit. When my company was deployed to Iraq people were only tested when they got back from mid-tour leave, and even then only some of the time. Possibly the powers that be were afraid of what such tests would discover. Were such fears unfounded? No, no they were not. And that's all I have to say about that.

/ I do want to emphasize that none of us murdered civilians or collected body parts, however.

But it's ok, because it wasn't for the sex and pleasure. The ONLY reason he took that up the ass was for DRUGS.

We're an all-male Combat Arms unit, so we don't have female soldiers, but from what I gather, it's "Hole Patrol."

Opiates are usually in a persons system for no longer than a week. Cannabinoids, however, last much longer as marijuana metabolites tend to get stored in and slowly released from a person's fat tissue. But I guess that's what you meant ;)

Heh. Probably. I used to have know all that crap, after an 80-hour UPL course. I did a brain-dump after I gladly retired from that job.
