The first post and my banner

"War is Hell" - William Tecumseh Sherman
"War is Schlep" - Me

See what I did there?

When I came up with this unbelievable idea for a blog name, I hesitated to christen any blog with it - seeing as I'm a college student whose time in uniform usually involves rubber rifles and a map of the forest behind the gym (just because the girl's cross country team has no problem jogging there doesn't mean a man can't lose himself in those infernal woods and turn mad before he finds his way back).

But if Sergeant Big Tobacco can write an (absolutely amazing) deployment blog that's mostly about the challenges of jacking off in Iraq, I figure I can dig up some material that's at least as entertaining (If not nearly as substantial).

Also, the name was just too sweet to pass up, and it is my hope that I can sustain this blog until I do actually get to write/draw about higher-stakes adventures in Iraq/Afghanistan/Iran/Pakistan/North Korea/Equatorial Guinea (they know what they did).

This should be my wordiest post ever- I'll try to draw as many of my posts as possible. It's a good gimmick and I can do it while I watch TV.

That's what she said.

  1. This is hilarious, great way to find out about my immediate future while getting a good laugh as well. I commission in May and IBOLC after that, if the Army decides to ever tell me when that is, so keep them coming!
