DEUCES WILD IV: The Devils in Baggy Pants Get Games From OSD!

DEUCES WILD 4 COMPLETE 05

As I was an 82nd trooper from the 505th, I always kinda smirked at the guys next door at the 504th. Their Regiment was given the moniker “The Devils in Baggy Pants” from what the Germans called them during World War II, but it wasn’t exactly the most heartstopping of titles ...

KNIFE FIGHT II: Helping Out the Sappers for the Holidays!

KNIFE FIGHT II 04

Route clearance. A necessary evil in Afghanistan, where Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) litter every major road where US and Allied forces are known to use to get places.

DEUCES WILD II: Droppin’ in on the Roosevelt!

DEUCES WILD 2 COMPLETE 02

Most of our video game filled supply drops go to units sitting somewhere in Afghanistan; some platoon of grunts staring at a black and white TV watching the Armed Forces Network re-runs of Seinfeld (okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but…). However, every now and again, we get a ...
