STORY: = This is a No-Shit Drinking Story
MY WARSTORY = So
there we were...having a bar-b-que and
partaking in some cocktails on New Year's Eve
when a very special friend happened to mention
how cool it would be to steal the Santa sled
and put it on top of the EOD bar. Now us
B.I.O.T.C.H.'s have no fear so myself and a
cop that shall remain nameless at this time
decided to take a gator from the CE compound
and travel to Liberty Hall. We drove
around to where the sled was and proceeded to
load it onto the gator. There were some
maintainers at their wannabe EOD bar tent
yelling at us, but we did not falter.
Speeding down the dirt road we delivered it to
the EOD bar and many took pictures with
it. What was left to do you might
ask. Put it on the roof! A few
less drunk individuals hoisted it to the roof
and those that were not weak climbed the roof
to sit in the sled and bring belated Christmas
cheer. I do remember a few days later
the 40 AEG commander ended up coming down to
the EOD bar and quite enjoyed the sight of the
sled on top of the bar.
...The AF EOD
shop was right next to the bar. There
the drinks were free. Their motto was
bring some drink lots. When I first
arrived people were saying it was an invite
only bar, but that was not the case. It
was open to everyone, unless they got too
rowdy...I'm a medic and was attached with the
Bomb Squadron as their medic. I did a
few shifts at the EMEDS tent. The EOD
bar is on Camp Justice, and I remember the
ROPOs trying to shut it down once....
