CAMP CASEY, South Korea — A younger Military specialist stationed in Korea legitimately simply desires to go sightseeing in Thailand, though some unsettling habits by members of his unit in current days has given him doubts, sources confirmed at present.
“The primary sergeant calls me into his workplace for what I assumed was gonna be a security lecture,” stated Spc. Lance Brender, “however then he fist bumps me and simply says, ‘aww yeah.’”
Though Brender thought that maybe the primary sergeant was simply keen about low cost airfare and shut proximity to Thailand, he later heard troopers whispering behind his again within the motor pool, whereas others started nodding their heads and flashing ear-to-ear grins.
“I knew the seashores there seemed good, and there’s a ton of cool issues like temples and nature sanctuaries to go to,” stated Lance. “I actually didn’t suppose it was that huge a deal.”
The alarm bells began to ring when Brender encountered an precise warrant officer for the very first time. In keeping with Lance, he initially noticed an officer approaching that seemed like a “very chubby lieutenant” with a “fucked-up” rank patch on his chest. That’s when he seen the insignia was, the truth is, three dots.
“It was like, holy shit! They’re actual! He even had our unit patch and every thing!” stated Lance. “However then he begins speaking to me about basket methods, bar fines, short-times, and soapy parlors. It was like he was fluent in some utterly totally different language.”
It wasn’t till the officer began speaking about “checking below the hood” and “ladyboys” that Lance needed to lastly interrupt and ask what the hell he was speaking about.
“He nearly seemed unhappy that I wasn’t monitoring,” stated Brender. “That’s after I heard someone hootin’ and hollerin’ at me, so I flip round and it’s the battalion commander himself strolling by. He seems to be me straight within the eyes with a smile and pretends to tug on a practice whistle.”
Like several good soldier, Brender got here to the place of consideration and saluted, however when he turned across the warrant officer had vanished. The one proof of their encounter was just a little commercial card left on the bottom for some “Penthouse Lodge” in Pattaya.
“If I’d have recognized shit was gonna get this bizarre, I’d have simply chilled within the barracks,” stated Brender. “However I already paid for this aircraft ticket and it’s nonrefundable, so I suppose I’ll simply see what occurs after I get there.”
