This shot may offend some people. To them I say here's 2 cents, buy a sense of humour. Swear by *Velox-Mortis is by far one of the funniest shots I have seen in a long time. Read into it what you will. ( Suggested by Slimmons and Featured by Ghouldaddy )

Offend???????? Lordy, this is your third enlistment and you and your fellow soldiers are absolutely entitled to a bit of fun!
My respect to you and your superiors for having such a great sense of humour!
Go safe.

Imperial Stormtroopers had excellent aim...as long as the four major characters weren't involved. Exception being Ep VI were they decided it was ok to wound one of them. This kids is known as weak writing.

That is awesome, and I totally agree with the comment saying to get a sense of humor if offended. Although, growing up in a military family, I can't imagine they would allow this for the official ceremony... right?... Beyond that, you have my respect for choosing to serve.

what was your retention NCO's reaction when you told him how you wanted it done?

It was my 1st SGT's idea. We were deployed at the time and didn't have a retention NCO to speak of.
