Many of you know that I spent some time on Active duty, most of which was spent in places over the sea. During my ventures, I amassed quite a bit of extra equipment. Changing units often, and being lent out to units even more often allowed me to grab alot of "Army Booty". Magazines, TA-50, Unifroms, knives, Gas Masks, Kevlars, and much more could not escape me. I now have a whole two closets, something like 7 duffel bags full of stuff that has been reapropriated to me. I got off of Active Duty a little while ago, and when I did, I outprocessed with a clean bill at CIF. (Central Issue Faciltiy). Meaning, all of that "booty" is mine. Why do I hold on to it? For the Post Apocolyptic Future of course. Anyway, my wife, who is currently on Active Duty, has blabbed to members of her unit of my ability to outfit a small platoon. The Officers in her unit are supposed to go to the range and qualify on their 9mm's next week, and guess what, they are short about 20 9mm magazines. Naturally, my wife just has to tell 1SG that I have plenty. Now all my precious 9mm mags (not all, but 12 of 'em) are on her 1SG's desk, awaiting qualification. Will I ever see my precious beauties again. Not likely. I had my revenge though. When I was talking to the 1SG about the mags, he said he could have me arrested for having so much stuff that belongs to the Army. I told him that there was no way he could prove that I didnt buy all that crap, and if the cops did show up, I knew that they wouldn't shoot me with their empty guns. He didn't laugh, but I sure did. I have the satisfaction of knowing that my wifes 1SG is running a unit that has to harrass civilians to make it's equipment needs. Next time I hear of a Humvee breaking down, I'm dressing the K5 up like a Civic. What is our Army coming to?
