I've never claimed to be otherwise, my dear.

The current unit fave is "a PRIC E-8" (or E-7).  Preferably send them to
Gunny or Top for that one.

Alas, no.  *sniffle*  And apparently there's a ton of junk holding me up,
too.  Like a rumored promotion freeze for infantry and another rumor that I
have to complete the first stage of the Corps' new martial arts program
before being promoted.

I'd like to get promoted before I head off to graduate school and a new
unit, but I'm not so sure that's going to happen.
