I got yelled at by Jaw Taylow when he was 1st Sgt at A co, 5th Grp.
He even suggested a meet behind the office,

I thought it pretty unprofessional and that he was a psycho.

It was a minor fuckup based on ignorance.

He was a legendary character, but not much of an inspiration.

As the new guy on the Team, the silent, smoldering glare from the Team Daddy trumps yelling.... you shiver and the pee runs down your leg...

That is your Team Sergeant, ODA 053, good luck.
Hey 053 was my first team also. Pretty sure we were 1 or 2 years apart (I got there in 99) but it's still kinda cool. How was Devens?
