|Reviews for BeachHead's Sick Leave|

I know this was actually written in 2009, but, yes there are Majors in the SEALs. As the USMC is part of the Department of the Navy, any Marine Major has the right to become a SEAL. There are also USMC pilots with the USN Blue Angels. The other person was correct that in the USN, there are no Majors, only Lieutenant Commanders, the United States Marine Corps is technically part of the Navy and they have Majors.
So, you weren't incorrect. Just an FYI
(I'm former USAF and have friends/family who have served in every branch in the US Military.).
By the way, I enjoyed the story. I always thought the BH/CG story needed to be told better.

Sorry I've slacked on writing reviews - been out of town for the holidays, maybe BeachHead needs to kick my butt in gear! :)
I loved how BeachHead didn't back down to Flint, and knew that all the Joes have the potential to do better. It too bad that BeachHead has to be seen the "bad guy" to get them in shape.
I also loved the greenshirts video in Chap. 6, BeachHead was such the proud papa! :)

Although all of it was lovely, the part about the duct tape as a bandage got me the best. Awesome job!

I love how you have Doc totally lose it here. Poor Doc - he should do that regularly, it seems to have worked on Beach (at least a little).
That was a fun story!

Poor lifeline . . . everyone thinks he can do anything . . . You should definitly do a story on him!

Ha! Love Kamakura; "We are ninja; we do these things."
Snake Eyes has taught young grasshopper well:)
Also, the ninja disdain for walking through a hallway like average people is hilarious.
Feel sorry for Beach...it's a sad situation when you're drinking water simply to have something to throw up so you aren't dry heaving. Ick.

Good story I've really enjoyed it. One thing though SEALs don't have the rank of Major in it. It would be the rank of Lt. Commander. But other than that great job.

You'd think even Shipwreck would have known better than to make a comment like that. :)
Nice chapter, eagerly awaiting next one!

I didn't review for a few, been busy too. But let it be known that I really enjoy this story and await new updates :)

Love the chant! Maybe BeachHead will know how much he is appreciated. This is NOT a boring fic, BTW! :)

Aw he's proud of his greenshirts.
| Karama9 chapter 6 . 11/28/2009
Ah, don't be silly. This one is entertaining too. I love the bit with Duke - only wish I could have seen Doc yelling at him.
| Karama9 chapter 5 . 11/26/2009
Definitely having fun reading. :D

So far a good story.
You are right about reactions people have coming out of surgery, I work for a military hospital and I see all kinds of things happen to some people when they come out of the OR, one time I actually had to stop working on the light I was repairing and help hold down a guy who was literally trying to do what you said Beach did in earlier operations, pull out his IV, chest tube ect...
Good comments about the whole "Equal opportunity" speech from beach, it’s always funny they ask for "equal rights" then complain that they need concessions... one cannot have their cake and eat it too.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to your next chapter in this or any of your other stories.
