I'm Scott and I'm a New Yorker now living in Seattle and Bill is my oldest friend who just finished serving an almost 7 year prison sentence for selling meth.
Bill in Exile originally contained letters written between Bill and me while Bill was in prison as well as a bunch of other shit but Bill has, as of late, opted out of contributing and I've just been too lazy to change the name of the blog.
Some of what this site contains IS DEFINITELY NOT work safe and some of it may not be appropriate for those under 18 years of age. Navigate away if you have doubts. And if I've used an image for which you hold the rights and wish me to remove it or credit it please send me a POLITE email and I will be more than happy to do so.
First of all Dances, I’m a Marine — so I can call a fellow Marine anything I want. In fact, I was a Marine Sergeant, so there’s that.
It’s kind of like the use of the “N” word. Its fine for African-Americans to use, not so much white folks.
Secondly, Three stripes up and two stripes down with crossed rifles in the center is a Gunnery Sergeant — which, if I’m seeing his insignia correctly, is what this Marine is. Although the image isn’t all that clear.
But thanks for lecturing me on Marine Corps etiquette and our rank insignia.
