Camp Bastion one summer, I was giving a new guy his first fam ride. He's a weapons school guy, so he gives me the not my first rodeo, what do I need to know routine.

I said, you are not going to be able to understand a single word on the radio for at least a week. He rolled his eyes, then we went out to the helo and I was right. He didn't answer a single radio call.

I said, and those were just standard Brits dude. Wait until you get a scared Scottish guy on FM secure. Good luck with that.

I dated a girl from Glasgow for about a year while I was stationed in the UK. Didn't understand a single word.
