About Grin & Barrett
Skirting the fine line between amusing and annoying, Barrett’s epiphany came about a year ago as he realized, much to his horror AND delight, that his Battalion Commander actually thought his name was “Get in here, Smart Ass!” This gave birth to the realization that he was quite good at amusing the majority of the room, while subsequently pissing off the other (usually senior officer) members of the room. Aided by his passion for Mixed Martial Arts, his love of patriots, and Glinda the Good Witch, he clicked his heels together and repeated “There’s no place like Ranger Up…There’s no place like Ranger Up…There’s no place like..”
Barrett spent the first seven years of his military career as a Sailor, then he made the masochistic move to the Army, where he heard every Sailor joke ever told by a Soldier.
“What’s long and full of seaman?”
“Why do Sailors where their name on the back of their pants?”
Barrett has spent the last four years assigned to a Military Police Battalion, and he plans on riding this horse all the way to the 20 mile marker, maybe beyond.
In his free time, he likes practicing with his Nunchaks and mastering the Dim Mak. He has a katana set in his house, just in case a Ninja ever attacks because, well, you never know.
