Re: Boot Camp
I was the 'cake monster', once we got off of 'total control' (to avoid mass punishment for everyone for my own mistakes), I started taking the desserts at chow time even though they were 'highly discouraged'. I got scuffed up like no other but it was funny as hell and brought a smile to more than one face.
They would even have the pie or cake or whatever sitting there all cut with a slice on a scooper ready to go; the whole company would pass it up but I would grab that sucker and smile at the drill sgt all the while. Come lights out, I was outside in full rattle battle doing grass drills...
but otherwise, it pays to be the 'grey man', just blend in, don't be last, don't be different. Just do what is asked 100% and NEVER VOLUNTEER FOR S*** !!!!
trust me when I say it's an experience you wouldn't trade for the world, if it's something you think you want, go for it and never look back!
