Assholes: DO.. Brandozzi super dick.
DO..Angelo Mannera thought he was hot shit.
CO..Bruno Fredinelli looked like afucking bulldog acted like one to.
CO..Dick Jones self righteous BOOB
CO..Floyd Garret..wife Sea Hag. I was an MS in a small town in EastTexas, Pittsburg to be exact. Caught a couple of elders in some shit and lying about it. I'd had enough and decided to leave, elders told me if I'd keep my mouth shut and be a good boy Iwould be an elder with the next CO visit, if not I asked? He drew his finger across his throat. We moved to a near by cong. Got a bad letter, the PO had been a friend for many years, and wanted to dispute the letter. I said forget it but he went and got Garret involved. He 'investigated', a few weeks later he came back and said, " you were right, and they were guilty, but I'm going to remove you, because it's easier to remove an MS than elders, and besides who will I find to replace them? And it was to much paper work" I said "how about a couple of sisters?" He didn't think that was very funny, I told him I wasn't trying to be funny, and this wasn't fair, his response.."who said life was fair?"
Sometime later we moved to Tyler TX. A year later guess who our new CO is ? Bingo...Garret. He puts me in his service group, The rest of the group were in the car, he stops me and says "Your a fighter, I didn't think you would make it after what happened before". I responded " what if I had not made it?!? If you were to lazy to do your job, and couldn't handle the paper work then perhaps you should retire and let someone else do it, and if this is your feeble attempt at an apology, keep it, and we should get back in the car because I have a real urge to knock you out right here." Funny he never mentioned our little chat to the elders there.
Biggest Asshole of them all ( based on my limited exposure )........Steve Ferrel, but this a story for another time, this one stands alone, and is what really started my journey to freedom.
