An NCO wants to make sure his guys out on an observation post are staying awake, and keeping alert. So he plays an extreme prank on them.
Standing post can really be a bore sometimes. If I had a dime for every time I almost fell asleep on post, I would probably be retired by now. In contrast, if I had a dime for every time I played a prank on my Marines who were having a rough time keeping alert on post, I’d probably be able to retire twice.
This NCO steps up his prank game to a new level, and decides to fire a grenade launcher in the direction of his observation post. I can’t say this is the type of maneuver that I would use, but it sure is funny to watch someone else do it.
