"He was a SOT-A Soldier doing exactly what SOT-A's do," his commander said, "fighting alongside his special forces teammates in the most difficult, dangerous places while carrying heavy loads of technical gear that saves lives of our forces and takes the lives of our enemies."

If you're Christmas shopping and your nine-year old takes a knee and sips from her camel-back at all halts.
You can't train for a kick in the balls!
If you are on post police in Alaska and driving around in a 12 Pax van and as your driving down the road you tell the other joes inside to "Stand By" and at 100m intervals they jump out into the snow while driving at 30 mph only to be pulled over by the Brigade CSM and told this is not an aircraft but everyone of you had a good tight body position (true story).
This is one of those times when, as a cherry, I will simply beat my boots and face and take my lickin'.
Actually, I kinda like being the resident Cherry around here. I'm sure we've had some AQ-only's join, but none are active, I hope it stays that way. It's kinda like having someone around that is younger, stronger, and smarter, always gunning for you!!! Of course, none of those are me, but it sure sounded good!
Your faithful and loyal
Cherry for life!
dam, thats a cherry tree I would like to see. But I noticed it didnt have a 3 shaved in it anywhere.
Some people are meant to be COPS and others are meant to call us.
send a cherry to supply for a box of grid squares
You might be a paratrooper if you spend more time putting your beret on than it would take to walk to your destination...
You might be a paratrooper if you ever sent someone to supply to get feedgrain for the "gamma goats".
You might be a 325 paratrooper if you ever saluted that hot, female leg LT on post with a hardy "Let's Go All the Way, Ma'am!" and then got away with it.
