I realize there's a need for discipline and teamwork in the military but, uhhh... Guess there's no time for a shy bladder in the military! (Note the guy supervising!)

The picture is after the jump since it might not be safe for work if your job is particularly prudish.

"You call that a stream soldier, now drop and give me twenty. No, I didn't say to zip up." "Soldier, yeah you on the end, that weapon is not a toy; stop playing with it & holster it immediately. It may discharge without warning."
We just came home from seeing my dad-in-law in his final resting place. Such a solemn place today & deservedly so. I always cry when I visit him. Thanks, Gloria, for lightening my mood. Happy Veterans Day to all soldiers, past & present.

But if one of them takes a peek at the other guys' junk - like the one on the right may be doing? How could they handle that? Oh the horror.

German WW2 troops fought as a unit, ate as a unit, marched as a unit, and yes, took a leak as a unit. You think the Germans were far too rules-happy? They issued German troops a small ticket known as a brothel pass. If you were caught in a brothel without your ticket, off to hard labour! And yes, when you checked in, they tore off part just like a movie ticket, and this was sent back up the chain of command to make sure troops were getting proper "R&R"! Gives the phrase "German precision engineering" a whole new meaning!

Isn't there a similar scene in JARHEAD? all the troops are ordered to hydrate, then piss. Fluid levels in a desert environment are important to maintain in balance, so a by-the-numbers drill is needed.
I can imagine a certain number of readers here adapting this as a screen saver or adding to their slightly stained scrapbooks....

As if men don't sneak a peek in the various bathrooms all over the world anyway! Yes, all the men, not just us!
