    I did Basic at Ft. Lost in the Woods, I didn't have that lady cut my hair. I had some old fart who took hair cutting personally and cut hair so it hurt and you found your "battle face".

    Marine Boot is nuts, that is all I can say.

    Well, geez. They have videos now huh? That's interesting to say the least. Marines! It's what everyone wants to be but according to the government, they had to grade folks on a curve. I was told I could jump two grades transferring to the Army out of Marine boot camp. Back in the day that would have meant a $300 a month increase in pay. But I thought to myself.....why? May God bless the new recruits.

    I was one of the twisted people that liked boot camp (OK, the first couple of weeks stunk) and was kinda of sad when it was over.

    I was kind of twisted too... I liked drill. Being out on the grinder and drilling. I could drill for hours and not even get tired.

    I hated drill, hated chow-time, hated PT, loved the range: both Grass Week and Range Week, loved martial arts, loved firewatch.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Column of files was nearly the early death of me. When the platoon and the DI all had their groove on, drill was a beautiful thing.

    Well, I learned something from the Army drill sergeant. I didn't realize it was acceptable to address somebody by their rank preceded by their last name. Is that specific to Ft. Leonard Wood or is it Army wide?

    I mean, I would never call General Bumper "Bumper General." He might take exception and kick me off the forum.

    Oh, and another thing, they may be somebody's kids, but they're adults. Please treat them as such.

    I heard that at PI they would make you stand on the beach and let sand fleas nibble away at you, making you stand at attention. Is this true or did that guy try to pull one over one me? He was a former Marine so I just assumed it was true, but have always been curious.

    I don't remember being on a beach at PI, it was a sandy Island in a swampy coastline, maybe a beach on the left coast. We did however had to stand in formation and "Let the bugs feed". Sometimes it was better to do the push-ups then get chowed!

    What I hated most about Air Force Boot was Texas. Mostly the Texas summer. Ridiculous. 100+ degrees at 5:30 am, how do people live there? Drill on a black-topped parade ground in black boots felt like my feet were on fire, top and bottom, and my boots would stick to the asphalt because it was tacky/melting from the heat. I also didn't care for the part where they kept telling me what to do.
