    Default High School pep rally...er, Commanders Call

    We had a Group All-Call on Wednesday. I loathe going to these things. Other than the ridiculous SARC stupidity, it was business as usual. Be safe...blah, blah, blah....

    But, over the last few years, the trend of this chanting shit is driving me crazy. When / Where did this crap come from?

    I was watching a show with my wife a few days ago, in the show was a high school pep rally where some kid was yelling a cheer and the crowd was yelling a response. Now, we have that high school rah-rah shit at every commanders call (and ALS graduation) I go to. I find it embarrassing and I'm glad the general public doesn't see it. Be adults, clap and congratulate the winners. No need to yell shit like, "Defenders!" - "Lock and Load".

    Dumb. I seriously curious where this came from. Did we put an 18 year A1C in charge for a day, he implemented it and leadership didn't catch on? WTF?

    But, hey at least we didn't have to recite the creed......thank god.

    At one base I was at...everytime someone from Comm would win...they'd play the old "You've Got Mail" voice from AOL over the sound system...it was hilarious.

    This was in the days when AOL was big.

    LOL, I'm sure it was....the first couple of times. But after hearing it 100x, I'm sure it got old.

    Chants, clapping to the AF Song hoe down, bowing your head PRETENDING to pray at EVERY official event, and reciting the AF Creed. It's all fucking gay.

    Focus on the mission. Learn your job. Do your job.

    Yes, but have you hurt yourself during the 101 critical days of summer? You'll get hurt if we don't brief you not to get hurt.

    I guess they realized people started getting injured in the winter too.
