AAAAArmy Training, Sir!

So I've been at Ft. Hunter-Liggett in California, about 2 hrs drive south of San Jose for 1 and 1/2 weeks. Thankfully much less physically intense than our previous training about a month ago. We're getting ready for a deployment to Iraq starting around late Jan.

A couple of nights ago we were getting trained in hand to hand combatives by a reservist with specialization in martial arts and hand to hand combat. His civilian position is as a police officer and he did a monologue about how important it is to stay in shape. As he talked about himself and others that he's seen get out of shape in the police force he made 3 priceless comments-

1. Police with bellies so large they look like Front Butts
2. A belt so tight it was a poop tourniquet
3. A butt so fat that when you kicked it, a honeybun would drop out...

Well, we take our humor where we can. Another day of Arabic language training, 3 days of weapons systems training, then home to my loved ones.
