|Red Dragon Soldiers listening to a Family Advocacy briefing.|
A couple of funny stories from today ... A representative from Family Advocacy came to brief the battalion on spousal and child abuse awareness. Serious topic, but a couple of lighter moments ...
One, the representative asked the assembled group of Soldiers, "Is it okay for a man to expect sex from a woman anytime he wants it?" The Soldiers dutifully replied in sing-songy unison, "Noooo." She then went on ... "Is it okay for a woman to expect sex from a man anytime she wants it?" Again, in unison, the Soldiers (largely a group of males) answered, "Yeeees."
The representative smiled and said, "Of course, the answer is nooooo ..." and went on with her speech. Still, pretty funny. I think some of the Soldiers still don't know what was wrong with their answer.
Two, I was sitting at a picnic table during the Family Advocacy presentation with our guests. A sweet Family was sitting behind us ... Soldier, spouse, and kids. The kids had apparently started acting up because suddenly we heard a loud whisper from the dad: "Just because we're listening to a class on child abuse, don't think I won't whoop up on you! Behave!"
All in all, a superfun day with some wonderful Soldiers and Families. Red Dragons!
