ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH


Buck Sargent taking the Oath of Reenlistment in April 2007, thus simultaneously awarding the gift of flight to pigs while sending the temperature in Hell into an irrecoverable nosedive.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
-Shakespeare, King Henry V


Once more unto the breach, dear friends. Once more.

Good Luck!

Optical illusion, Boggsy. Besides, I had my old PL swear me in and he's pretty big, as well as in the foreground.

Whaddaya trying to do, give me a complex? We can't all be tall, dark and media friendly like you.

I know, I know. Its a burden that I must bear, but someone has to do it. Right?

Congrats! To all of us as men of your caliber are sorely needed. Keep us posted.

Hey, Buck! Count on all of us to remind you that you volunteered for this ;)

Good to hear from you.

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked! But I guess that means you'll keep posting! Yay!

Didn't your mama teach you never to volunteer? Or at least your first drill sergeant? =)

Congratulations!

congrats on the reup, how you got what you wanted. Thank you for serving, always good to have a Good SGT to help lead the way, and carry the load.

personly if you are going to quote shakespear, and King Henry V at that, i like this one.

This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. (IV, iii)

Yes, welcome back! I've missed your acerbic commentary and look forward to more.

I just found your blog and it's an excellent read. Thank you for your continued service to our country.
