Episode 35: Stay Wild Barracks Child
Sergeants Bacon and C'Gar reflect on how a life in the military also has an impact on their civilian life. Over the last 20 plus years members of the military have spent a tremendous amount of time not only wearing the uniform and conducting training but also serving in combat zones. Either scenario awards a Soldier the ability to create a bond with other Soldiers, also known as brothers and sisters in arms. The connection that is established between those who serve is similar to that of a family. When a single Soldier is lost, it effects us all.

Episode 19: Word Vomit and Defecation
There's only one thing to do when you hear the F-Bomb, drop a deuce and keep moving. As usual Sergeants Bacon and C'Gar catch up before talking about who Soldiers are. For the most part, Soldiers are trained to live outside of society but forced to live within it. Foul language when not appropriate quickly escalates to our favorite past time, talking about sh!t.
