Team Code names
Some of my team mates have been given some interesting "code-names" by the Tm Sgt. There was usually an interesting f+++-up or perhaps story behind each of those names, one such was "Shit House Man". He got his name because he came in a little early and we had 13 guys on the team. Having but 12 lockers the team sgt told him to put his gear in the closet in the shit house... Another "Prairie Dog" got his name from a riverine op, he was perched in the bow of a Zodiac watching for rocks and looked like a prarie dog sitting up in a hole. There was also "flash", hit a high power electric fence with the barrel of his rifle in a heavy rainstorm.

Anyone like to share some other "code-names"?

Add a little explanation....
We had a Warrant that was dubbed "2K". When asked, the RON, RP etc. where always just 2 klicks away...

Although not on my team (or Bn) there was a guy in 3/10 that was christened "combat" by the CSM. Got the name when enquiring which team would get into combat first.

The best one I think was with "cliff" who thought he had found "it!" :eek:

We had a post-SFAS/pre-Q Course OJT guy for a short while by the name of Mike. He quickly became "Carl" because we already had three Mikes.
