Team Code names

Some of my team mates have been given some interesting "code-names" by the Tm Sgt. There was usually an interesting f+++-up or perhaps story behind each of those names, one such was "Shit House Man". He got his name because he came in a little early and we had 13 guys on the team. Having but 12 lockers the team sgt told him to put his gear in the closet in the shit house... Another "Prairie Dog" got his name from a riverine op, he was perched in the bow of a Zodiac watching for rocks and looked like a prarie dog sitting up in a hole. There was also "flash", hit a high power electric fence with the barrel of his rifle in a heavy rainstorm.

Anyone like to share some other "code-names"?

Add a little explanation....

We had a Warrant that was dubbed "2K". When asked, the RON, RP etc. where always just 2 klicks away...

Although not on my team (or Bn) there was a guy in 3/10 that was christened "combat" by the CSM. Got the name when enquiring which team would get into combat first.

We had a post-SFAS/pre-Q Course OJT guy for a short while by the name of Mike. He quickly became "Carl" because we already had three Mikes.

Let's see.....

"BT" - This one was for a particular CSM. The "B" was a reference for "boof", which is the sound that a .45 round would make when entering his chest cavity. The "T" stood for his name. I think "The Reaper" also has another nickname for him.

"Butthead" - He was a young kid that tried really hard but just did not seem to be all there. Previously he was SOCOM commander's driver an if the grapevine was correct his GT score was just a tick above SGM BT's, which was somewhere below that of a mentally defficient onion. While down range one time we had a team meeting and at the end of the meeting a new guy brought up the fact that we should not be calling this guy "Butthead", especially in public. The rest of the team seemed to be coming around to this line of thinking until "Butthead" piped in with, "But I like being called Butthead. It makes me feel like part of the team." There was no changing our mind after that.

"Spanky" - Tm Ldr. Overall good guy, I guess he looked a little too much like the character from "The Little Rascals."

"Wally the Wong" - (10th Group guys might remember this.) His genitalia was supposed to be so big that every time that he became excited all of the blood would rush from the rest of his body to his private area and because his member was so big, there was a decided lack of blood for the rest of his body, his brain in particular, and he would pass out. The whole thing was of course, just a joke. The truth behind this is that after drinking hard he would just pass out without any warning. The young ladies present would ask what had happened to him and the "Wally the Wong" story is what they were told. Oh, the fun that "Wally" and I had at DLI.

"Horse dick" - (Another 10th Group one) His member was that big and was damned proud of it. I could not count the number of times that he would show it off. Funniest guy in the world though. I spent a week with him in a spider hole during a StratRecon exercise and he kept me laughing continuously for that entire week.

"McWeeWee" - Tm Ldr whose member was that small and seemingly so was the amount of gray matter between his ears.

I almost left SF because that idiot wore a Green Beret. He grabbed my arm one time, and I told him I'd kill him if he ever did it again.

He had one peer. Billy Lee.

First rule: Look cool. Second rule: Always know where you are. Third rule: If you don't know where you are, continue to look cool.

------BT-------------

Code Names.

Knew a 18D Navajo who we called the "HO".

Johnny Handsome, no matter how bad the weather was, dirt, mud, scum in the water, he combed his hair.

Had two guys named "Peter". We called then "Peter 1" and "Peter 2", then it became "Pete" and "Re-Peat".

Crazy Larry, he drove a 69 Dodge Charger, although his name was Chris.

Guns, a big 18E with large arms.

Boner, he was embarrassed by the name at first, when the Tm SGT said, "put that thing away before someone trips over it". Scott was heading into the shower, half a sleep. The name stuck, he was secure, team wives and GFs liked the name, calling him "Boner" as well.

Another Medic called "scrubs". He had completed 3 of 4 years of medical school with a 4.0, but enlisted instead, pissed his father off, who was already a doctor.

Had a "Punchy", "Kicks", "Zinger", "Smiles", and "Frank". Of course there was a "Chief", "Doc", and "Dad" on every ODA, followed also by "Kid" for all new young arrivals. All E7's coming from another team we called by their names until something happened, then it was "Fuckin Bob", or "Fuckin Todd". It was never in a bad way, but something along the line of, "who shot the best today? Fuckin Bob. Who fired the Ring Main? Fuckin Todd.
