I can verify him, or we can take his word for it.

He does need to learn how to spell Student Company, though.

Not sure about his three rules, either.

NousDefionsDoc ...

Very off topic, but;
Did you write what's in your sig line? It caught my eye, and I planned on writing it down. However, on the chance that I decide to quote it at some point in the future, I wanted to either ask your permission to quote it from you if you wrote it, and if not, then who did.
Sincerely,
Michael.

I pieced it together from bits and pieces I've seen over the years, I search would have told you, as the question has been asked and answered.

Yes, you can use it. Until you piss me off. Did you do PT today?

Well if you are asking NDD for an exercise list you may want to go ahead and take some advil...

surgical;

Luckily I have a bottle of advil in the cabinet downstairs. And I'm sure it would be a great exercise in learning to be the grey man. As my recruiter told me; "If you want to really get in shape by the time you leave benning....then every morning, first thing when you see your DS...tell him you feel he's not doing his job and your not being PT'd enough".

PT

I won't make up excuses for knowingly slacking. I'd rather take my (apparently painfull(thanks for the heads up surgical )) PT list without trying to cop out of it.

Enough of this on this thread. Go in the ISOFAC and post your last PT score.
