Tallest of all the bronies! Maybe. Socal resident that likes ponies, war related things, and the use of the word saucy. Feel free to drop a line or whatever. I love to talk with people. Brony on!

    Chapter update schedules

    So even though today I didn't hit the time mark I'd like, today starts my new writing schedule. Every Friday I'll be posting a new chapter! No matter where's it at. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, my previous blog went into greater detail. Hope you all enjoy,

    Brony on!

    I'm alive! I swear!

    It's true, I am alive! And I have good news! A bunch of chapters are about start coming out! I haven't pushed them out yet because I wanted to try something new this year. So read some more and tell me what you think. If you ain't got the time for that, TL;DR will be at the bottom.

    Head Held High, Semper Fi

    It's been a hot minute, hasn't it? But I have returned once again! But I come baring some sad news. I did not make it to the end of training and am not a marine. If you'd like to know the why, keep reading. If not, I'll add a tl;dr at the end.

    All of my stories will be on hiatus for the foreseeable future as I begin my military career.

    I wanted to get so much more done than I actually did. But time was a resource that I didn't have enough of. And I am sorry for that.

    Do not fret though! When I am able to, I fully intend to come back and start writing again! Just know that it'll be some time before that occurs.

Thank you for reading. I honestly mean that. Writing has been an unknown joy of mine and you have all made it that much better. I hope to get back here soon and continue that passion. But until then,

Brony on!

*salutes* god speed you magnificent bastard!

SEMPER FI!

Best of luck to you and your comrades. May you all come home safely.

Oorah! Best of luck in the future to you

Take care soldier
You need to come back to finalize those worlds of yours

Thank you for your service you’re going to perform for our country. As a former soldier I understand what you will be going through. Hang tough and I look forward to reading your stories again when you get a chance after training.:pinkiehappy:

I'm currently active duty bro, welcome to the club. You got a community here to back you up if you need us. If you need someone to talk to we are here. Go kick some ass!

Good luck bro! Remember, it's mostly all about mentality. Keep your spirits up. And no matter how much people dare you, DO NOT drink any milk the day you go into the gas chamber. Mentally prepare yourself for that event dude, it's a tough obstacle, being unable to breath and the feeling of suffocation is a terrible thing to experience, good luck with it bro.
Also buy stuff for blisters on your feet, cause the miles long marches are fucking suck.
Another thing, if they do the same thing where your going, might wanna pack light, cause the day you get sent to your platoon barracks your gonna go through something called shark attack. Basically, thier gonna make you carry all your stuff while marching there, 20-25 percent of the people on that whole company will likely quit the first day of training. Once you reach the barracks, thier gonna have you doing work outside lifting your duffle bag for over an hour, good luck with all of that dude. One last bit of advice, try not to ever.EVER.EVER! piss off a drill Sargent. Xd
Try not to let all that change you bro, and no matter how confident you think you'll be, they WILL break you, that's the point, to break you down and build you back up into a soldier. Good luck again, and see you in about 3 months. 👍
Watch out for GIANT spider webs. :twilightoops:

Ra killer. See you on the other side of Basic.

Good luck recruit, and remember to never look the dill instructor in the eye, scream as loud as humanly possible and accept the fact that you will be lower than dirt.
Semper Fi!

Be safe, Devildog.

Remember to:

Listen to the old guys more than the young ones.

Watch your buddies’ six and they’ll watch yours.


Any grenade tossed (by either your side or theirs) is automatically “too close”.

Same for bullets.

And artillery.

Make friends with anyone named “Bubba”. Bonus points if they like shrimp. A lot.

Bring tampons; they’re good for bullet holes as well.

Embrace lé suck.

And come back in one piece.

Just remember that Marine Corps boot camp is a mind game. They will begin by depriving you of sleep for two days. You will not be able to speak in first person, so never say ‘I’, ‘me’ or ‘you’...everything is ‘this recruit’ when referring to yourself, or ‘Drill Instructor Sgt ______’ when speaking to your drill instructors.

It will bring out whatever is already inside you, as well as changing your mindset from civilian to military. First phase is always the hardest, so once you make it past that you’re almost guaranteed to graduate.

The turning point for me was making it all the way through the first 25-mile hump. This is done with full equipment plus rifle, so we’re talking 120 pounds added to your body weight.

Make damn sure none of your friends or family refer to you jokingly as anything other than Private or Recruit when writing you. Drill instructors fucking hate it when a recruit is called Captain or General in the mail.

If you’re going to Parris Island, and if it will be during the spring or summer months, be prepared for those fucking sand fleas. Avon is out of business, so I don’t know what product you can use to keep them off you, just don’t let the drill instructors catch you scratching.

Your body will get used to the physical exercise, so long as you don’t let them break you.

It’s a mind game.

Good luck, don’t be a boot.

Very Respectfully,
-A former Army Lieutenant

Take care, listen to those other guys, they seem to have a better grip on things than I do.

Thank you for serving our country. One day after I graduate this year, I hope to join the army as well, so I can serve our country. You can do it, just Don’t give in, and you will come back.

Sorry I'm just now seeing this! Godspeed, thank you for your service :rainbowdetermined2:
FYI, this story was my first favorite when I joined the site, thanks for a great ride!
