Yosemite Sapper

Sometimes it is hard to believe we are in a war–and even claiming to be winning it–when you see this going on:

Shaving eyebrows and marking-up the face is apparently off-limits in a warzone


 The incident came to my attention in the form of a report of a safety violation:

Sir, I found one of your subordinates in safety and uniform violations.  I know CPT Gensler likes to try and dress up as Yosemite Sam, probably dreaming about how to catch Bugs Bunny, but it could be very dangerous if he slips out of the chair.  Also, it would appear that his mustache is out of regs.  I just provide this as an example for you to pass on to CJ ENG so that we might all be a little safer and wiser.

At least all the fun of war is not lost on us.
