“Hooverites and Jarhead MPS” by David S. Pointer

David S. Pointer


The FBI agents
came from Glynco
to train with us at
Marine Corps Logistics
Base, Albany, Georgia
conducting building
searches and various
law enforcement training
techniques and scenarios
while offering the Marines
a tongue lashing letting
them know they would be
losing every training task,
but those kids could really
climb rope-n-rappel into
Hell faster than Satan, and
they didn’t have any
superior attitudes weighing
them down like the high
bureau officers on loan
