For not being front line guys, this unit is pretty hard core, routinely building things under hostile fire, etc, kinda like SeaBees. Port Clinton, and more specifically Camp Perry also used to be home to several Army units, a Naval reserve unit, and still houses a Coast Guard port security unit, so we get to do a bit of ribbing around here.

Didn't mean to offend anyone, we are (or were) all part of a big machine, it won't work well without any of the parts.
i wasn't trying to ruin the fun, i just didn't want to see this thread go the way of the other one .
