Now, I was never a US Marine, but back in early 1989, I was a Marine recruit at MCRD for 3 months, and I was in Casualty Company for one additional month. And then I got a general discharge. Anyway, we did a lot of tough exercises, as you will see these recent recruits doing in this documentary. What we did not have, thank God, is these Drill Instructors jumping around like ballerinas on crack. What I had was DIs who chased me around and barked at me, but they were men and acted like men, not like these cartoon monkeys you’ll see here. Whenever you see some poor kid getting surrounded by three or four DIs who are yelling his ears off, yeah, that was me multiple times per day, because I was just that lovable. Ah, the memories. To quote that memorable line, it was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.
Seriously, what is that pansy move where they skip back and forth between the lines, in coordination, while the fresh meet is standing at attention? I’ll tell you what that is; that’s a fucking joke.
