Army Sergeant Benjamin Rudy is a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division; he’s also a pirate. Deployed or at home, he’s always quoting some historical fact or joke about pirates, and his coffee mug definately says pirate. However, this story is something he came up with as a way of explaining his deployments to his very young children, who really didn’t understand what the army was or did. So, he’d say that he was a pirate and going to get treasure–this the kids understoon. Every month he has to go on his current deployment is the number of “ships he has yet to search.” Of course, he always brings “booty” home for his children. Way to go, SGT Rudy!
