The Haymaker Remembrance Thread

21 posts in this topic

As many of you may be aware, I proudly held the title of Haymaker 1's Senior Lance Criminal and I met some great friends during my year and a half there. I also proudly held the title of the most thanked user on the old forums clocking in at 420 thanks, with the perfect three scoops of ribbon rack I felt as if I was invincible. My time spent in Haymaker was by far some of the greatest time I have ever spent gaming and I wholeheartedly believe that the outstanding character of the old Haymaker 1 bred leadership, camaraderie, but more importantly our morbid, sometimes way out of line, disgusting humor that made it so enjoyable for me. And so it is with a heavy heart that I must finally say goodbye to our merry company of degenerates, fuckups, boots and terminal shitbags. We were Haymaker. 

 

*This thread is intended for any and all to share their favorite memories from Haymaker, whether it be videos, pictures, or just a written wall of text.

It's been a few years since I was in the unit, and even though I was only a member for about 7 seven months, I still look back at that time in Haymaker 1 very fondly.

 

It was Second Lieutenant Ferreiro, a Sergeant and squad leader of Haymaker 1-2 at the time, that introduced me to ArmA milsim. After months of recurring attempts he finally forced convinced me to join the unit in April 2014. Corporal Persson, at the time a PFC who had recently taken over for Cpl Thomsen, was my first fireteam leader in Haymaker 1-2-A, and he made sure that I was given a great introduction to Haymaker and the unit in general. I ended up being perhaps the only person to have taken up positions in all fireteams of Haymaker 1-2 (Assistant Automatic Rifleman in Alpha, Automatic Rifleman in Charlie and eventually Fireteam Leader of Bravo).

 

One of my favorite memories is one of the Haymaker 1 platoon trainings organized by then Platoon Commander First Lieutenant Valentino (who has now enlisted in the USMC):

I remember when I joined, Haymaker 1 had just opened a few weeks earlier and I had the privilege to go to 1-2-C. There I stayed for 6 months before moving to Haymaker 2 then 3. To see it close sure is a heaetbreaker. I sure do miss the old breed. Heckman, Dawe, Spears, best time I had in the unit was with the guys in H1 August 2013-January 2014.

 

Here's to a new beginning though and a lot of fun.

Are you trying to make me cry?
 

Cause it's working

 

P.S. I miss my DMR days with Gaden-senpai and company. Life was so much easier back then, even if it was only a few years back.

For those who wont have access in a few weeks to the old boards or pubs:

For those of you who don't know I've been making comics for Haymaker 1 and the shenanigans we get involved in. I've heard there's a thread in ACE that has them, but I've decided under request to go ahead and post them on the tun tavern so everyone else can see them and hopefully enjoy them. The positive reviews of the comics so far as encouraged me to potentially go beyond comics and possibly make an short animation series.

For those who haven't seen them, I hope you enjoy them.

"Throughout my time in Haymaker 1, I'll be making webcomics based on things that happened in trainings, FTX/ops, teamspeak conversations, etc.
The comics will be offensive, "Rated R", and no one will be left out in them (that means both command, 1-1, and 1-2)."

So without further ado, I present: Just Haymaker 1 Things

Haymaker 2-3 (April 2015)

 

Found this while digging through my old screenshots. I think I'm the rifleman in the front left of the picture.

 

Front Left is PFC Watkin

Back Left is LCpl Vanasse

Back Center Right is Cpl Louis

I Think the others are Sgt Smart, Cpl Godbout, LCpl Juarez, and PFC Lafave. No idea which order though.
