Pre-Blast: Gentleman, I will be your Q for Saturday at the Zoo. Kraut, Pasty, MadCow, Hasselhoff and I will be on the tail end of an overnight ruck. So that the rest of our F3 brothers may enjoy the fun and to celebrate the Marine Corps birthday (11/10) we will have a beat down insired by a former Force Recon buddy of ours. Coupons needed.
