Behind the Uniform

Behind the Uniform


MY NAME IS GERALD RONALD THORNLEY THE THIRD,
AVIATION ORDNANCEMAN 2ND CLASS. I WORK IN THE WEAPONS DEPARTMENT AS THE AMMUNITION ACCOUNTANT. WE TRACK ALL ORDNANCE WHERE EVERY PIECE OF ORDNANCE IS EQUAL TO A DOLLAR AMOUNT AND WE… FULL INVENTORIES, EXPENDITURES, BASICALLY A LOT OF ADDING AND SUBTRACTING. I RUN MY OWN MUSIC RECORD LABEL. IT IS CALLED DIRTY DEVIL ENTERTAINMENT. ME
AND MY WIFE ARE THE TWO OWNERS. WE’RE THE TWO ARTIST OUT OF CALIFORNIA, I HAVE TWO ARTISTS IN TEXAS AND ONE ARTIST OUT OF PENNSYLVANIA. MUSIC MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME. LIKE, IT’S
ALWAYS BEEN A VERY INTENSE PASSION. THIS WAS THE ONE THING I ALWAYS PUT LIKE BEYOND A HUNDRED PERCENT INTO. WE FUNCTION DIFFERENT THAN MOST LABELS. WE
ALL HAVE FAMILIES, WE ALL WORK, WE HAVE OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES THAT COME FIRST ABOVE MUSIC.
NOT SAYING MUSIC IS DEAD LAST, BUT IT SHIFTS FROM TIME TO TIME. THERE ARE PRIORITIES THAT COME WITH JUST HAVING FAMILY AND WORKING IN THE MILITARY. FAMILY COMES FIRST THROUGH IT ALL. YEARS AGO, MUSIC
WAS FIRST. THAT WAS ALL. WE GAVE IT OUR ALL. KIND OF WENT, COO-COO CRAZY FROM IT JUST BECAUSE THE AMOUNT OF TIME AND ENERGY IT TAKES TO PURSUE THIS INSANE DREAM. THERE IS A LOT OF BAD THAT COMES WITH IT,
I WAS LIKE YOU JUST HAVE TO PUSH THROUGH ALL OF THAT FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL LOVE OF THE
MUSIC; NOT TO JUST LET IT COMPLETELY DEFEAT YOU. THERE’S 24 HOURS IN THE DAY, ITS KIND OF
WHAT YOU DO WITH THEM THAT MAKES IT COUNT.
