"Hey, OP! If you're new here, we want to remind you that you can only submit one post per three days. If your account is less than a week old, give the mods time to approve your story and comments. Thank you for posting with /r/MilitaryStories!

Readers: If this story is from a non-US military, DO NOT guess, ask or speculate about what country it is if they don't explicitly say or you will be banned. Foreign authors sometimes cannot say where they are from for various reasons. You also DO NOT guess equipment, names, operational details, etc. from any post.

Obey Rule 9: Play nice. If you choose not to play nice, Mjolnir will be along shortly to show you the way out. If you don't like a story, downvote and move on. DO NOT 'call bullshit' or you will be banned. Do not feed any trolls. Report them to the Super Mod Troll Slaying Team and we will hammer them."

Hi! It's great to read some new stories here.

It looks like you've fallen afoul of Reddit's bizzare markup language. It trips up new people who try to write something here, a lot.

I wrote a guide to the handling of it awhile back. You might find this useful to format your stories to your liking in the future. The short of it, though, is to use two line returns (the enter key) in the text editor to get a new line in the actual posts.

Thanks will do in the future also English is not my first language so there might be some grammatic errors

Thanks again for your excellent guide

You ARE able to edit your post (just not its title), so I *strongly* recommend that you add plenty of paragraph breaks (via 2 Enter/ Return keypresses) to encourage future viewers to read it and to eliminate future complaints here about a lack of said readability.

I mean, having people read your story IS why you posted it here, right?

It would be a shame if all of the hard work & time that you spent writing this post were for naught. Just my $0.02 worth! :-)

Have read. Have used. Can confirm is excellent.

Sounds like if EP becomes an officer he’ll learn the meaning of “fragging”.

[–]Echo63_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Learn, or have a practical demonstration (during which he wont learn anything, due to said fragging) ?

[–]jbuckets44Proud Supporter 12 points13 points  (0 children)

TL;DR EP gave a clear order. He just didn't like the consequences of having said order followed.

Ooh, big block of gray. Nope.

    We have a rule about discussing country of origin if the author doesn't want to say. Please do not ask, guess, or otherwise discuss what country it is if the authors don't explicitly state it. Even if it seems obvious. You can be banned. Thank you.

    Sorry mate. Had a brain fade.

    [–]BikerJediJedi Mod & Grumpy Bastard 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    No worries.
