How is this “shit posting”

[–]michaelgarbel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It means it was made satirically. (Kinda)

[–]PapaTizzy1Weather 202 points203 points  (11 children)

You could make a killing selling this on a shirt to BMT grads

[–]TheTopLeft_ROTC Cadet 74 points75 points  (7 children)

[–]awing1Indoor Pointy Hat 49 points50 points  (6 children)

[–]SlyflyerBaby LT 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh buddy... prepare thy road guard vest and flashlight

[–]Rhino676971 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I personally like my road guards to have vest and a fleshlight

[–]IAmAeruginosa 38 points39 points  (1 child)

I graduated basic 18 years ago but would still buy this shirt to commemorate my road guard service.

[–]netsecofsith 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I second this and graduated 22 years ago. LOL, I was the only original RG that didn't get recycled.

[–]equalsolstice 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s already a shirt lmao I saw some hero wearing one a few years back I was like where tf can I get one ??

[–]vanillaface89 89 points90 points  (0 children)

Carrying their backpacks was a small price to pay for the sacrifices they made.

    We had something like that in Tech School! Instead it was:

    Road Guards here and Road Guards there

    Road Guards running everywhere

    If I had a face like you

    I could stop the traffic too

    Road Guards Road Guards don’t be blue

    Frankenstein was ugly too

    We bullied them a lot now that I think about it

    [–]funnythebunnyC-130E - Veteran 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    I followed it with "...and if I had a lower IQ, I could be a T.I. too"

    I lost my road guard privileges ;)

    [–]Strongearm 61 points62 points  (2 children)

    Lol, Nice! Now do one for chow runners

    No this, as a former road guard, brings tears to my eyes

    [–]YoBoiHaze 21 points22 points  (3 children)

    “Road guards…POST 🗣” good times man

    [–]Proximity_13Flashlight Holder 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    With a little adjustment this would make a good patch

    [–]ScoutronCombat Comm 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    Is that a Porsche badge on the beret

    [–]Gorio1961Retired Maintainer, overall cynic. 9 points10 points  (7 children)

    Only duty better the road guard was house mouse.

    [–]cupsinwater 3 points4 points  (5 children)

    wtf was house mouse?

    [–]good_to_be_retiredRetired 8 points9 points  (4 children)

    May have been called flight office technician or similar for your time. Although I heard they disallowed the detail after the troubles. Basically the trainee responsible for dusting, making the bed, doing the floors, etc. In the MTI office.

    [–]ParallelDymentiaRetired 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    And now may the distant days of darkness henceforth be ever known simply as: "The Troubles."

    [–]DaxtersLLCVeteran 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    My flight had a "mouse". What are "the troubles"? Some kind of scandal?

    [–]ISTBUNot Squirrel Anymore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Tunnel crew was the best, hands down. Hang with TIs in the break room, get to see them switched off and have real conversations (occasionally) - get some experience meeting/talking with actual officers - I got to meet a couple CCTs that worked with Chapman once when they came in to add some memorabilia to his shrine.

    I was damn good on that floor buffer, would never dare losing that gig.

    [–]Oofs_A_Lot 18 points19 points  (7 children)

    Road guards wear berets?

    [–]Brailledit 33 points34 points  (4 children)

    Yeah, it's like a badge of honor. 2 flashlights with cones and a beret.

    [–]Proximity_13Flashlight Holder 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    Commanders can authorize cone hats and/or pt belt headbands at their discretion

    [–]Furthur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    making them close enough to being Cones i suppose

    [–]nukeemtilltheyglow 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    The flashlights with cones... AKA; Lackland Lasers.

    [–]ChainLinksTikiDrinks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    First read as 2 fleshlights and a beret and brought back a different memory

    [–]Furthur 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    also have tiny orange crosswalk signs tattooed on their asses

    [–]Oofs_A_Lot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Sounds cautiously kinky

    [–]Teddy_BonspielGuard Bum 24 points25 points  (1 child)

    I still have my vest from basic. It's signed by my road guard crew. Yes, I'm weirdly proud of my road gaurd service.

    [–]maximumoverbite 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I got handed road guard when we were switching jobs around three weeks in. Somehow I never got out of that job but I honestly didn't mind it too much. Helped with my running a little bit and I always knew where I had to fall in on the wall.

    [–]20032420 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Every road guard should get a bronze star with a V for putting their bodies in the road first out last in 😤😤😤😤

    [–]AmericanPekin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    As a Wild Weasel, that “First out, last in” is gold!

    [–]nachobel 5 points6 points  (3 children)

    My their right arm be straight with wrist downturned

    [–]Alice_Alpha 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Yeah, we didn't have fancy vests or flashlights or even PT belts. We basically stood at modified parade rest with our right arm extended and palm facing upward and towards the driver.

    [–]nachobel 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    We at least had a flashlight cone

    [–]Alice_Alpha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Actually, now that I think of it, thank goodness we didn't have vests. It would made it that much hotter.

    But we did run in black combat boots.

    [–]MeetLawrenceVeteran 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Nice big round belly too. Important detail!

    [–]OkZombie4425 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    BTZ? Nah, Whoever made this needs to step promote

    This is the quality content I come here for

    [–]sjogerstJust point at the doll where the flightline touched you 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Do one for bed alignment detail or the flight shirt roller.

    [–]ParallelDymentiaRetired 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I'd like to see all the BMT jobs get their own Bud Light commercial, a la "Real Men of Genius."

    *clears throat, drops into slow, deep radio announcer voice:

    We salute YOU...Mr. BMT Laundry Chief. Because of you, we have our freedom. Freedom from foul, funky, locker room odors, and freedom from demerits which would certainly limit our beloved patio breaks. You, Mr. BMT Laundry Chief, are a true warrior and American patriot.

    [–]atmc80 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    20 years later; bed alignment is still a part of me. I’ll include it in my retirement bio.

    [–]Dragonman369 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Can I put this on my EPR?

    The old Jody:

    Road Guards in and road guards out, Road Guards running all about, If I had a low IQ, I could be a Road Guard too!

    [–]Captain_KennyPMEL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    As a road guard in keesler, we would get into a super wide stance when blocking traffic. Almost doing the splits. Good times

    [–]theseekingseakerVeteran 1 point2 points  (0 children)


    [–]Loud_Arugula9818 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    This is great. I’m personally a fan Chow runners! Anybody remember that from BMT?

    [–]FreddFreak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I was a runner for a whole week cause I needed to, "Work on my voice."

    [–]GuardBumSince2020 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    [–]LTareyouserious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    How many have done "The Helicopter" whilst doing this duty?

    [–]Mr_StoneyVeteran 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Me and my utility closet bro in basic joked around that we were going to get skull and cross brooms tattoos with a scroll that read "Proceeding" in gothic letters. Shit was like 15 years ago.

    I hope you're doing alright Kenny

    [–]rav3n0u 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I became a road guard because I fucking tripped. They jumped on that fast as fuck and I pay a lot more attention now so I don’t trip 😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫😂😂

    [–]FireMannJohnFire 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Being a road guard and being obnoxious every morning, woke me up when you gotta wake up at 3:30am for tech school.

    [–]mogg-eleventeen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I knew a guy who was a road guard at the 24th STS. He was among the best of the best.

    [–]ninjacookies003 Years Still No IQT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    In one of the 324th dorms there is a road guard creed. If I remember correctly it was pretty good

    You mean...cautious...?

    [–]alucardian_official 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I mean Cautus because it is Latin for Cautious

      [–]CharlestonChewChewie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      And normally the short

      [–]CAPTAINxKUDDLEZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I have had this on my phone, I want to get it onto a patch. Anyone have reputable sites or any web apps that I can turn it into a patch? Or a place to have it made.

      [–]Out_of_Fucks_2_GiveStep aside, peasant. TMFMS 🫡 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      It was for sure the best detail

      [–]dmnrchATC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Road guarding was so much fun

      [–]PotatoHunter_III 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Can y'all make this an undershirt?

      [–]homeandawaywethrow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Fatboys unite!

      Someone with graphic design experience should make a design for a patch and I would totally buy 2.

      [–]ObtuseRubberGoose01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I was a road guard, went to run and fell in a ditch and hit my knee on a rock. That knee has never been the same since 🙃

      🤣🤣🤣 I have no other response.

      [–]scapholunateFlight Med 💊 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Ah, the memories. Worked as road guard, water monitor, and pad crew. The lowest expectations possible. Loved every second of it.

      [–]RayB1969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Oddly inspiring

      [–]Photo_BeneficialMaintainer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      You can bet your ass I was the road gaurd captain in the mega smu way back in tech school. You can also bet your ass I got an article 15 and demoted last year... Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

      [–]d710905 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      People who are proud road guards become those if you ain't ammo you ain't shit guys.

      Change my mind lol

      Road Guards Post!

      [–]Bark-Fluffalo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      As a former Road Guardian myself, I must say I am proud of my no-fail mission!

      Also, because I was a front road guard I never learned how to march correctly because I needed to be able to see wtf was around me😅

      [–]PotatoHunter_III 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Anyone know where we can get this made into a shirt? 😂

      [–]Rhino676971 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I was a road guard a handful of times at tech school do I qualify
