Your wagon needs a bright yellow sign on the tail gate that reads "logger in training"
When I was in Iraq one of the eighteen year olds got trained on the 50 cal, I had been trained on the 50 in the states and was a gunner the whole time. When it came time for his first mission as a gunner, our drivers had pulled the trucks closer and we were going back and forth bringing gear and weapons out. When I got to the trucks the first time he had just turned back for another load, as I went by his truck I wrote “Trainee Gunner” on his door. We crossed paths again on my way back to the barracks. When I got back to the truck I noticed he had wiped the chalk off of the door, I was writing it again when he came around the corner and caught me. He said “I’m not a trainee gunner”! I said yes you are, you haven’t even fired it yet. We were often horsing around.
