Except that they play Reveille  and not the national anthem.

It's Reveille, over at the sawmill.
Tell folks it's time to get up.

Sorry, neighbors, but that's the sound of freedom.  You should thank your chewed up bubble gum ass that the soldiers can play it every morning instead of the German National Anthem "Du Hast"

nickdaisy: The only thing that could get me to visit New Jersey would be a Mayor Ford v Gov Christie sumo wrestling match.

That might actually be a good idea. Maybe they'd finally get a handful of tourists into that ghost town Atlantic City. New Jersey is a rust belt state with a rusty coastline. Even the supposed beautiful/decent places (Cape May, Princeton, Cherry Hill, whichever Orange is the rich one) are flanked by intolerable hellholes (Vineland, Trenton, Camden, whichever Orange is the poor one). And the people are so loud and bombastic. Just terrible. It's a state populated by people who think a long weekend in Miami wearing jean shorts and "Scarface" tee shirts means they made it.

Hauptmann shouldn't have been executed, he should have been acquitted and rewarded from sparing that kid the suffering of growing up in the "Garden State."


Awesome.  9/10

demaL-demaL-yeH: give me doughnuts: Tat'dGreaser: cman: When I first saw the headline I thought back to AIT (for you non-military, AIT means Advanced Individual Training). We had this Drill Sergeant who would run outside when To The Colors played. farker would drop everything he was doing just for that.

Considering most of us would run inside every evening to avoid it.............good for him

I was down in Ft. Gordon, GA for AIT. During the winter months, we did PT in the evenings. We always had to stop in the middle of our run to salute the colors. Then our sergeants would run our asses off to make up for the "lost time."

*strokes chin*
Hmm.
*looks at your fark handle*
I wonder why.

/When I was there, I was still young enough to eat a whole pizza for dinner and be hungry the next morning.


I was in uniform and holding an M-16 when I first said that, thus earning the nickname "doughnuts" and terrifying the counter-man at Krispy Kreme.

Which national anthem are they playing?  If it's the American national anthem I'm okay with this. I love Toby Keith.

As a military brat and veteran, part of me misses Reveille and Retreat, but only a very small part.  The rest of me is damn happy not hear it twice a day, every day for 20 odd years.  None of me misses it blasting over barracks speakers while some no neck sergeant screams at me to get my ass out of bed,
