Nate Fick is like that guy that you bring home to mom and dad and is really nice to your parents and calls your mom Miss and your dad Sir and eats their food and compliments their house then later demolishes you in your childhood bedroom while covering your mouth with his hand so you don’t wake your parents up because thats impolite
“Get Some”Dear Frederick. Thank you for your nice letter. But I am actually a US Marine who was born to kill, whereas clearly you have mistaken me for some sort of wine-sipping communist dicksuck. And although peace probably appeals to tree-loving bisexuals like you and your parents, I happen to be a death-dealing, blood-crazed warrior who wakes up every day just hoping for the chance to dismember my enemies and defile their civilizations. Peace sucks a hairy asshole, Freddie. War is the motherfucking answer.
have I mentioned lately how much I love the background dialogue in Generation Kill
Yeah? Well, twenty other Marines rolled by them and didn’t shoot. So why don’t we bring Trombley here and see what he’s done.
Don’t say that, it was my order. What can I do here?
Not a fucking thing apparently, Brad.
You want logistics? Join the Army. Marines make do.
“You want to expose yourself to people who didn’t share what you did because it gives you a mirror of what appropriate, normal peacetime civilian behavior is. I think we’ve come a long way. But there’s still this lingering culture in the military that if you see a therapist or psychologist that there’s something wrong with you, and we’re trying to help remove that. From the mental health standpoint, there are so many of our service members who struggle with depression or alcoholism or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and they don’t do anything about it because they’re scared to death they’re going to be seen as weak or less human. It’s a really hard stigma to try and get rid of.”
- The real world Brad “Iceman” Colbert. He now spends his days helping soldiers with post traumatic stress syndrome.
Ray: Brad, Brad! Listen. You used to rake the fucking shag carpet in your parents house when you were a kid. You used to rake it so all of the fibers would go in the same direction. That is totally type-A, OCD behavior Bradley. It’s just fucking…it’s kind of pathetic.
Brad: I did it once, Ray, ONCE! And, the point is…
Ray: The point is, Brad, you’re so fucking cute when you’re angry.
Colbert looks at the car, then down. He breathes deeply, as if struggling to put his emotions aside. Having watched him cry a few days ago after the shooting of the shepherd, I suspect it’s not always easy being the Iceman.
