ive been wondering this for a while. any stories?
yes we got pted for 3 hours because of it.
My DS quoted from the movie only once, specifically regarding a certain soldier (me) with a protruding lower lip. I wound up w/ a sunburn on my lip that caused it to bleed/crack/hurt etc. etc. I was using chapstick and all that, but it wasn't doing much good (probably needed SPF eleventy billion lip balm). My platoon guide decided to bring it up to the DS, and I was called over so they could check me out real quick. I got to stand at parade rest for 5 minutes while two E-6 (P) Drill Sergeants rolled on the fucking ground, laughing after one of them busted out with "You better tuck that thing in, you're gonna get it caught on a trip-wire." They reminded me about it probably once or twice a day until graduation. And a couple times at/around graduation to make sure my family was in on the joke.... Good times, good times...
cliffs: my lip was sunburned in basic, and DS told me to tuck that shit in, son...
No. Whole lot of full metal jacket though.
Has anyone taken a breath of air in the last 5 minutes?
Smoked for an hour or so because some PVT decided to be funny with the Drill.
I'm so old I went to basic with Private Gump.
Really tall Jamaican kid was like 6'4 and D.I. was like 5'4. He made him always stand so he was shorter than the D.I. Poor kid always got pitted every morning.
Lots of full metal jacket and just goofy shit they came up with off the top of their head. I swear Drill Instructor school has got to be right next to clown school. I didnt go a day on the Island without cracking up laughing.
some of shit they say/do took every ounce of strength for me not to laugh.
