You must be so stupid that you cant comprehend the letters I formed to make a sentence because I clearly state a friend of mine who is a marine told me that. I don't know what you dream about me watching gay porn but it isn't happening. As for my dd avatar, it was given to me so again, hate to burst your bubble but it isn't going to happen.

Enjoyed.....a buddy of mine went into the marines last year, when he finished boot camp I asked him what it was like, he said if I really wanted to know I'd have to sign up and go see for myself. It looks intense

I served 6 years as an MP in the Marine Corps. I was in tears laughing so hard at the meathead at the recruit depot. We had a few like that at MCRD that drew all the attention.

The Army is quite a bit different. I remember a time when I was training at Fort McClellan in Aniiston, AL for MP school and small weapons. We had a detach right down the road from a basic training barracks. Watching those recruits at the chow hall was amazing. Those drill sergeants didn't raise there voices at all. There didn't seem to be any discipline what so ever.

One of our instructors came directly from the drill field. We were all lance corporals and above and we would get yelled at and get more P.T. then most of those recruits.

I even saw a "stress" card while I was there. The recruits get to wave it if they feel they are being overloaded.

OOH RAH!

I love how the drill sergeant :rolleyes: sweetly tells the female recruit or soldier or whatever they call them in the army "don't you see the open phone booth?" my first thought was jesus you're not talking to your girlfriend you're talking to a f-cking recruit....scream at them until you're head explodes :D

The way they showed it on the Marine part was the way it was at Fort Knox, KY during 19K (Abrams crewman) OSUT, (One Station Unit Training). No stress cards, except in the coed training units, and we were smoked every 15 minutes because our Drill Sergeant was served papers when we arrived and he blamed us for his divorce, LOL.

You know basic training for combat arms is different. The Army is more like a corporation than an Army. You do understand how many more people go thru the Army's basic training than the Marines do. The Army alone has a recruiting goal of 80,000 a year and than you have the Reserve and National Guard. You almost have the size of the Marines going thru basic each year.

Numbers make no difference unless were talking about China. Training, discipline, morals, and standards do. We certainly cant have the largest Armed Forces in the world, so In order to maintain superiority we should have the best trained Armed Forces in the world. It's not like they are pushing all of them through one or two training posts. There are plenty of Basic Training post to accommodate and properly train all of the Army's recruiting quota without laxed standards. I'm not saying that the Army or any other branch is to blame, the Marine Corps has fallen victim to bureaucratic BS just as much as everyone else. The Drill Instructors, Drill Sergeants, & TI's are just on the bottom of the totem pole with everyone over them looking over there shoulder making sure that there isnt a Recruit or Trainee on the 6 o'clock news saying he got his feelings hurt. It's gonna suck when his face hurts after he gets shot because training has taken a back seat to crying on mommies shoulder.


We've gone soft, training has lost it's value, Core Values have become a gimmick.....

With all due respect to the jarheads, that's bullshit! When I went to basic guys were being thrown out of the bus windows because they weren't mving quick enough for the Drills. Anyways, I never saw any that kind of crap, maybe now in Obamanation's army where every one has to feel coooomfortable about thier choice. :rolleyes:

Pat love the Chesty picture and agree 100%

Heartbeat...Maybe back in your day but nowadays the Army are fat, unproductive leaches on the taxpayers pocket. Wonder why the Marine Corps had to retake Fallujah? Because the occupying force (read: US Army) could not OCCUPY! This wasn't meant as a dig at the "old Army". My great grandfather fought in the Army in WWII and I have the upmost respect for those old soldiers.
