Used to be 100, but they took the FAST helmet and sidearm back; those are only issued for support guys deploying now.

I'm also in the guard, it's a bit more skewed towards these things being less "cool" and more "lax".

Torn. Units in the Army versus current position to use for the poll.

Army - 10 points, only because we didn't do suicide presentations back in the day.

Current position - 80 points, but I wish, some days I could carry a sidearm.

I gave myself a low score of 95 because I went with a Team Wendy helmet instead. :p

Do you get bonus points for rank separation when using first names? E-3 calling an O-6 Group Commander by first name in front of conventional units and vice versa. When challenged by an NCO with a scroll for it, said O-6 locked him up and told him to mind his own business.

What about no hat, no salute being SOP in garrison?

The SHARP/EO points aren't fair, we had those literally every month no matter what tier we were with. (Giving odds that is what kept @Viper1 from getting 100)

Only got 50... when I was in we didn't have FAST helmets, Cold War stuff was odd. Do I get extra points for the "Heavy Ruck"? (only a few will get the last reference.)

As opposed to the light rucks they issue 18 series?

Keeping my hatchet sharp in the PNW
Probability is high on your assumption.

of a nuke in a ruck? Low.
of a ruck dwarfing you? High.


I bet watching you ruck from behind would be the same as watching my kid carry mine around, all you see is a set of feet, calves, and someone whining "this things heavvvvyyyy"
