Rats! Episode 29 – Join the club!

See? I told you there’d be a Rats! cartoon today.

I must have drawn this one about the time our rats were going through initiation for the VTCC’s local chapter of AUSA (Association of the United States Army). There was a time during the winter each year when there was a big push to get the rats to join one military organization or another. The Ranger Challenge team was the hard core Army ROTC club. Of course, I was about as far from hard core as you could get, so I obviously wasn’t joining that. I think I joined AUSA under duress. I don’t recall ever getting any big benefits from it beyond a cord to wear on my wool blouse during parades. Needlepoint, on the other hand, I could have used.

Hope you’re all enjoying the summer. It’s August now and in just another couple of weeks, new rats start showing up at Virginia Tech. Have just a little pity on them, if you were a rat once. But not too much 😉
