Rituals of War 
Here's a new blogger (to me anyway), a major stationed I guess in Baghdad, a recent arrival, marvelling at a veteran unit's coping and bonding mechanisms.

I understood completely.

My little ritual used to be shouting "Here we go!!!!" and singing "The wheels on the bus go round and round" every time we left the gate.

Apparently, it was effective.


It's hard to tell for sure, but that looks like a 29th Infantry Brigade patch on his shoulder.

My first unit was Delta Company, 1st Bn, 299th Infantry Regiment, 29th Infantry Brigade (Separate), Hawai'i Army National Guard.

I'd go to war with those guys any day.

Especially with (at that time) SFC Milton Yee, the best platoon sergeant any brand new, 22 year old 2nd Lieutenant ever had.

The very first day I met him, he told me "lots of amateurs study tactics. Professionals study logistics."

Best piece of advice I ever got.

Except I keep drawing HHC command. (think herding cats)

E ma'akala kakou.

"Together, we all watch out."
