Mail Call w/ Gunny Huntarr

Recommended Posts

Negatory Devilpup. That was just for info purposes, nor is the MRAP. Heck you won't even notice them not being in this module cause of the kick ass other toys you will have. The MK32 as an example, you'll need adult diapers the first time you get to play with them.

Huntarr,

Thanks for some laughs in the middle of a very long night! Also, wanted to let you know that that item you pinged me about has been located and is in the latest addition to where you found it the first time. Believe this location is rather more survivable = NOT on YouTube! Have you considered actually publishing books with your work?

Regards,

John Kettler

Outstanding question DevilPup! But let’s get your nomenclature squared away.

The U.S. Marine Corps used pith helmets called "elephant hats" in the South Pacific during WWII. Pith helmets were also worn by recruits in United States Marine Corps Boot Camp. Someone else used them before that but heck, they weren't Marines so we don't really care to give that history lesson. ;)

The pith helmet has currently seen use as a form of identification by U.S. Marine Corps rifle range coaches at Parris Island and San Diego, similarly the campaign hat is worn by drill instructors

At any Marine Corps rifle range in the world there is one thing Marines can count on seeing every time; the pith helmets of Marine Corps rifle range coaches.

The duty of a range coach is straightforward: Assist the Marines under their respective tutelage to attain the best score possible by learning and maintaining the basics of Marine Corps marksmanship.

With long hours, no set lunch break schedule and working weekends, the coaches are dedicated to what they do for the Marines and the Marine Corps. Gawd Love'em cause some of ya'll couldn't hit the broad side of a mount'in before you met'em

The prerequisites for being chosen to be a range coach are similar to being a recruiter or drill instructor in the Marine Corps. The Marine cannot have any personal problems with weight, finances, pending non-judicial punishments and needs to be reliable. No certain rifle range score is needed.

In order to wear the coveted pith helmet and train Marines, the prospective coaches must complete a four-week course at Edson Range on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

Now that we have yar sorry excuse for sand flea bait ed-ja-ma-cated on the proper nomenclature of the Pith helmet you can spend some time in “the Pit”. Now gimme 100!2hdptfa.gif
