D: A1C Hamburg practiced appropriate use of the wingman concept ensuring SrA Ratner was awake in order to avoid being late for roll call. D: N/A

P: If A1C Hamburg continues his behavior in being a good wingman, it will reflect good upon him but if SrA Ratner continues making a habit of oversleeping, one day Hamburg may not be around to wake him up and SrA Ratner may oversleep again and have to answer for it. Line 9 thru 10: CF05 Four Lenses

“This is the third time this week you’ve overslept,” Hamburg says. “Sorry Hambone‟ but you know I can’t resist a party, gorgeous women, and free booze,” Ratner says as he clumsily fumbles with his boots.
