    I discovered on an ex that one of our new 2*'s was deaf (two hearing aids under her hair. Also, that she had stuffed her kidney pouches full of intimate female underwear :eek:). Add her to the parade...

    A reservist commissioned officer, moreover, and one whom I’ve never heard anything bad said about in three decades. I can also confidently guess who the ‘reservist Sgt. with AP skills’ is. Have yet...

    One private per officer? You don't know how good you have it. In our callsign the officers are time-sharing privates by this point.
