Why Private Pyro?

I was given the nickname by my Drill Sergeant after I accidentally set the barracks on fire in Army AIT. To say that I am shy is an understatement so it’s safe to say I went unnoticed. It was my last day when the fire happened. I was flying out the next day. The fear in me was so great as the Drill Sergeants came running down the hallway. The only thing I had going for me was that I managed to control the fire. They looked at me shocked as I explained how it happened with only a heat gun and a bottle of paste wax. One Drill Sergeant paused, looked at me and said “it’s always the quiet one’s.” They laughed and he spoke again “Get this cleaned up, Private Pyro.” I was an E1 at the time which is a Private. That wasn’t my rank when I left, but Specialist Pyro doesn’t have the same ring to it. I moved on to permanent duty and somehow the name traveled. I’ve been using the name ever since.
