I roamed around the motor pool carrying an empty box. Made it look like I was already tasked with something. Worked for weeks until a NCO from another platoon finally asked me what it was I was carrying. I replied something to the effect of, "a box full of push-ups"
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Dude:
I was the commanders driver in Frankfurt Germany for a medical detachment. One of my duties was to drive to the Abrams building to pick up and deliver message traffic. I normally hated going through the numerous checkpoints when I was driving alone but if my O6 was in the van we were just saluted through. So my idea was to take a resusci Annie doll, put her in my Colonels field jacket and his helmet with his eagle and watch the mud puppies wave us through.I even taped the hand up in a saluting gesture just so they had to salute.
