Army Barracks, 0600 Hours
General Tokyo: Atten-tion! Corporal Jane, what’s with the dumbfounded look? Get in line or drop and give me 50!
GI Jane: Sir, yes, sir! I couldn’t help but notice those amazingly cool pendants you’re wearing. Those shapes are straight from the field — the gun, knife, even a bullet, sir. And such intricate detail! Are those hand-cast solid brass, sir?
GT: They are, Corporal. On a brass bead chain. I’ve even attached my own dog tags to better identify them. And I carry them around in green burlap envelopes to remind me of the corps.
J: You made them yourself, sir?
GT: I did, Corporal. Back home in San Francisco.
J: Permission to speak freely, sir?
J: Those are some badass-looking baubles … sir.
