(thats better ill be a gunnery Sergent then gunny for short)
as i was heading back to the marine deck i hear the announcement on the comm. *sighs* i was hoping for more time before the drop but duty calls.
i double timed it to the equipment room just off to the side of the drop bay our ship ready and waiting i entered a few moments after the captain and the new co. walker looked up briefly as he checked his gear i went to my locker and ignored my gear instead stripping out of my uniform and suiting up in my drop/combat gear. a form fitting black suit with layers of hardened metal and ceramic plates. since im the front runner im pretty well armored. after i stripped i glanced at the captain, she was looking, just like i knew she would and winked at her and she blushed. i suited up quickly and stowed all my gear in my pack in its place. i didnt bother to check my weapons, i knew they're done right, made em myself actually.
after im all set i move to the display screen and bring up all the relevant data to show to the squad, tech ops remember. i mostly ignore the co, he'll talk to me when he wants my input i figure.
