Another Farkleberry?

General’s Orders Banner Previously: “If I may make a suggestion, Colonel?” Boomer had an idea—he has many—few of any value as they are often wise cracks, “As a member of the 20th Century Reserves myself, I can tell you that the majority of reservists were part-time soldiers—but the company had several full-time sergeants and corporals who ran the unit.

Everyone in the room slowly, knowingly, began to smile and look at one of their number…

“I already have a ‘First Sergeant’ candidate in mind”

“I already have a ‘First Sergeant’ candidate in mind”

“What?” Boomer asked, ‘though I have it on good authority he probably knew the answer.

“You’d look good in uniform, Jack,” Sarah Cooper her eyes a-twinkle confirmed what ol’ Boomer feared to be the truth—was in fact the truth.

“Wait, we’ve been sent here without being full-strength—we can’t afford another downsizing—CUJOOOOO!

Cujo’s answer came in a most curious way.
