Stache Bash! - BlackFive Update #1

One of the awesome things about this blog is that the military reads it in Afghanistan and Iraq.  From MGySgt "Crusty" somewhere near Leatherneck...

Training with ANA

So I see there is a movement afoot to grow facial hair in support of some cause ‘Mustache Up?’  Not sure what it is, but perhaps it supports research to keep us from dying from ass-cancer which is great.  Anyways, for the last two months, I have been heavily engaged in a FID effort that teaches the Afghani’s to help protect themselves [redacted].  So I have also grown a cookie duster in order to fit in.  Nuff said before somebody has to come and kill me. 

I have decided that my salt and pepper facial hair (within USMC standards) should be entered into the Mustache Up fray…and Movember too.  So here I am mugging for the camera lens with a couple of my Afghani partners…Lt X and Sgt Y…soon me and my little platoon of ANA soldiers will deploy out into the [redacted] badlands and see what they can do to help find and fix some Taliban targets.

Semper Fi,


So don't let the MGySgt down.  Donate here to support Soldiers' Angels and HireHeros!
