Yeah, it's like I just told you.
I'm in the humvee, on the radio, and then I see the new C.O. coming. Except, he isn't in uniform; he's wearing a suit. Yeah, a grey suit. The shirt? It was white -- with a blue tie.
It gets better though. Or worse, I should say. Walking back to camp, I see him again. This time, he's instructing the IED unit on the new robot. He makes it go this way, that way, every which way.
When I got up today, my head seemed much clearer ... until I stepped out of the barracks. Then I saw him again, checking out the armor, marching straight as a stick.
It's unimaginable a guy in civvies could be running the unit. Although no one else around here seems to notice.
Maybe that fourth rotation puts you over the edge?
