News, but not the serious kind
Lonnie, did YOU drop this grenade?
Okay, the actual caption on this photo says this soldier is “on patrol.”
But I have to wonder, what the frick kind of “patrol” do you go on where you need FIVE rocket-propelled grenades, unless you’re guarding the River Styx to make sure Satan doesn’t wander into our world?
Personally, I like to think this is Lonnie, the worst recruit ever, who was so clumsy and incompetent that some drill sergeant finally said, “Just give Lonnie an armload of RPGs and get him out of here!”
Of course it’s just possible that there is another soldier even WORSE than Lonnie. He’s the guy walking right behind him, saying, “Left, left, left, right, left!”
