Hearing that belt escape 6 belt loops was like hearing a shotgun being racked!
The best part was " come here"
Nope, best part being handed flashlight and pocketknife and being told to go cut your own switch
- Not to sturdy they just beat you down with it.
- Not to flexible, that was like a buggy whip.
- Not to easy to break or you had to go get another or worse they would go get another one ( we call them logs now).
- Definetely, nothing with thorns or knots on it
A pocket knife & a flashlight I’d be in the boyshome by morning
I grew up in foster homes and boys homes. Never graduated High School, could only take so much abuse and away, I would go. Got my GED and scored so well on it and the ASVAAB that all 4 branches recruiters in my town were drooling to sign me. Only good things my male donor did was provide genetic material and sign the paper work so I could join military at 17.5
That’s great. I had a friend in my SW section that got his high school diploma while on active duty. He’s an HVAC technician now. Good man.
