    The Five Most Dangerous Things in the Army





    1. A Private saying, "I learned this in Basic..."

    2. A Sargeant saying, "Trust me, sir..."

    3. A Second Lieutenant saying, "Based upon my experience..."

    4. A Captain saying, "I was just thinking..."

    5. A Warrant Officer chuckling, "Watch this $#!+..."

    had a brand new LT be unable to see a road that was within 50meters of our position. Only a little bump was in the way but he could not find the damn road.

    Going out to the field the LT was "allowed" on the radio :confused: , because let's be honest who cares how quick you get there.Going home was a bit different, 1SG was the only voice you'd hear and oddly enough the same trip that took 4 hours to get there, only took 1 :D

    I had an LT that was a Yale business school grad. Sucker could figure your net worth in 5 minutes, but couldn't find his butt with both hands and a map.

    Once upon a time we had a 1Lt copilot, fairly fresh out of flight school, write up one of the aircraft's radios after a flight. The discrepancy was (I sh*t you not)

    "COM2 radio does not work in OFF position"

    The HAC (Helicopter Aircraft Commander) let him write it up as a learning experience... plus he wanted to see how it got signed off. After 4 hours of intense debate (which they logged on the discrepancy as troubleshooting time), our avionics shop signed off the discrepancy like so:

    "CH-53E avionics equipment is designed to be non-functional in OFF position. Reference NFM-000 for further details."

    NFM-000 is the NATOPS (Naval Aircraft Training and OPerationS) Flight Manual for the aircraft; basically it's the owners manual. Tells you how everything works and how to operate it......
