The Drive-On Rag 5

"LIGHTS ARE ON, GATES ARE DOWN, BUT THE TRAINíS NOT COMING!"

100342Z AUG The Unofficial Newspaper of Cabanas í98 volume 5

Camp Santiago (UPI) The re-enactment of the Desert One debacle during part of a show of force demonstration was a resounding success. Members of the 7th and 20th Special Forces group and members of the 528th Support Battalion along with elements of the 160th SOAR re-enacted the mission flawlessly. MSG Bob of the 7th SF Group was on hand to answer questions about the operation. He said the PAO "was nowhere to be found after I subdued them and hog tied them so I could answer all the questions." He went on to say "I was on the planning team for the original mission as a SPC. Back then I was doing the Laundry and Bath portion of the whole operation. I was in charge of ensuring that shower stalls would be set up by D+20. Although I was replaced by a CA officer on that mission and never actually went, it planted the seeds to make me what I am today. Here at Cabanas 98, I was in charge of planning the entire re-enactment. But the question remains: If I have succeeded at failure, what have I done?" Editorís note: You go Bob!

ASK SGT BOB
DEAR SGT BOB: I got a negative counseling from my rater today, and some NCOís snagged a copy of it. Do you think you can stop it from being printed in the Rag? An Embarrassed CPT
Dear CPT Drewett: Look, I canít help it if you canít score with chicks. And I canít help it if you have those "high standards" that donít allow you to look at any female on the planet! I can promise you however that I will recommend to the Editor that he refrain from printing the "EXTRA" that he is almost finished with. Unfortunately, your counseling statement is the headline for that issue. But he really likes me, and I really like you, so Iíll see what I can do. (heh heh)
DEAR SGT BOB: I still donít think The Drive-On Rag is very funny. A Serious LTC
DEAR LTC: YES SIR!
Feeling incorrect? Need some advice? Got a question for SGT Bob? Just put it on a post-it-note and stick it in the 3d stall on the wall. Heíll find it!
We found out that MSG Bob is basically a total loser and exemplifies the "Shit Floats to the Top" theory of the Army promotion system. He also embodies "The Dilbert Principle" which dictates that a shitty manager be promoted to a level where he can cause the least amount of damage to operations. The "Kicked Upstairs Theory" if you will. He remains, and always will be a former Laundry and Bath specialist.

BONG-LOOKING THINGS
The Drive-On Rag has been conducting an undercover investigation of those bong-looking things seen around camp. These are interesting devices. The herb is placed in a special cup with a chrome straw. This pipe is no ordinary pipe. The lower end has a filter, which filters out the herb, so you get a cool, clean sip. Cold water is then added. Once you are done taking your hit, it is then passed off to the next staff officer, who fills it with water for his hit. Once enough hits are taken off the herb to render it flavorless, new buds are added, and the process repeats. Be cautious of the herb if offered an opportunity to suck on the peace pipe. You may come up hot on the next urinalysis for tea!

CAMP MESS HALL WINS ARMY DFAC OF THE YEAR
The Armyís Quartermaster Corps has selected the Mess hall at Bldg. 604 as this yearís recipient of the Army Dining Facility of the Year. This yearís competition included DFACís from around the globe as the Armyís QM team of judges traveled to evaluate each mess hall. "The excellent variety and tastiness of their frosty beverages were among the deciding factors. Also noted was the aggressive recycling program. But what clinched the award was the absolute best in flavor present during all meals served. All in all, a wonderful dining experience that outpaced all other mess halls in the Army." A spokesman for the QM team said.
EDITORIAL
You may have noticed a new look to The Drive-On Rag this issue. We were ordered to honor the El Guapo stamp by placing it in our heading. This came from a zealous 20th Group member who said that "You better honor the Man, or I will switch to reading "La Voz" instead of your Rag!" Well trooper, that sounds like an offer we CAN"T refuse, since he is one of our 7 subscribers. Donít miss the next issue, when we publish CPT Drewettís counseling statement in its entirety. Guaranteed to be unabridged and unembellished! Just the way you like your Rag. Remember: here at Cabanas 98, you canít buy The Drive-On Rag. The Rag is free, but itís not cheap. So if youíre on The Rag, then your buddy must want to be on The Rag, too. So git off your dead ass and make some copies for him. Drive-On!
