Tho, when I was in Army bootcamp (crap Norm, yer OLD... you were there when I was approaching 2yrs old lol), we did have Battle Buddies... someone to watch your 6 and you watch theirs (note I did not say BACK)... kinnnnnnda sorrrrrta a different definition.

Brendon... hilarious reference w/ the vid... Ronknee's got an entire "bedroom" full (not really a bedroom, more apparatus and device-centric).
Although I try to remember to not use the term "buddy" since that night so long ago, your comments did remind me of one of the differences - as Marines see it, anyway - between the Army and the Marine Corps. Just a simple little saying, it goes ...

Marines never leave their buddies behind.

Soldiers never leave their buddy's bee-hind.
