In absolute darkness they reside, spiteful of the day walkers outside always asking for something. Optics that aren’t broken, a new cleaning kit, new weapons cards, CLP; their demands are endless. The creature-like people inside the Armory were once people like you and I, Marines even, but in the darkness their features became twisted versions of their former selves. Their eyes have grown large to adapt to the dark, they see mostly with sound now, constantly tinkering with their gear and weapons. They scurry up the walls and into corners when that small window opens, shielding themselves from the harsh sunlight outside. A mere tickle of UV light will send their skin into an instant boil.

I may be the only guy in America happy when a turd falls into his lap. Daniel Beckham is just such a peanut-encrusted turd.
Spoke with a concerned party in Los Cerritos, California this morning. Which is fun to say. Los Cerritos. Anyway, it seems that the above pictured chap has been into some shady shit. Let’s start with the account from HIS side. Continue reading
Easy Company Band of Brothers loses another member.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of World War II veteran Mr. William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, age of 90 and original member of Easy Company, Band of Brothers.
Guarnere was born in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in April 28 1923, to Italian parents Joseph and Augusta Guarnere, with ten other siblings. He attended Citizens Military Training Camp for three summers – (took 4 years to complete). His mother had lied to the owners that Guarnere was 17, when he was actually 15.
He enlisted in the U.S. Army in August 31, and was put in Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, and was put in the Mortar Squad of 2nd Platoon. He went through rough training at Camp Toccoa, Georgia under Captain Herbert Sobel. After training at Camp Mackall, he and the 101st went to Aldbourne, England to await their next mission.
In Upottery, England, the night before the invasion of Normandy, Guarnere found out his brother was killed at Monte Casino, Italy. This gave Guarnere a desire for revenge.
He made a parachute drop on D-Day Normandy, was separated from his company, and later successfully regrouped with the rest of the company. He fought during Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, he got many jobs as a salesman, a clerk, and a carpenter. He eventually married a woman named Frances, and had two sons.
On behalf of a grateful nation, we salute you for your dedication and service to your country.
