I would still like to hear from some of the Marines I helped lead through bootcamp at SDiego. Just wonder haw they would rate me. HeHe

Platoon 1083 July-Oct 76. 13 weeks (give or take a day or two). Our platoon got all but two of their "awards", setting two Regimental records in the process. S/Sgt Knox became "Series Gunny" near the end of 2nd phase. Asst.DI was Tai Kwon Do champ of the base. Don't remember his name right now. Stocky dark green Marine. D.I. Sgt McCarthy was a little red-headed grunt. Tough as nails red neck. Co-owned a VW with another DI. DI sgt Pennypacker was transferred over from a sister platoon during third phase. Tried to break us fer whipping his first platoon all thru boot. Finally gave up and walked away laughing that Friday night. Our first jubior DI walked into the gear locker with a 6'5" fat body the first week of 1st phase. Sounded like a tornado for a couple minutes, then got real quiet. DI staggered out, leaned against the door post, and had one of the recruits go get help. Never saw either the fat body or the junior DI again. Never did remember his name.

Boot camp was condensed in early '66, barely 8 weeks for our series. I don"t think the Corps was ready for the massive influx of recruits, and as I mentioned in a previous post, about 1/3 of my platoon were draftees. There wasn't enough of anything, uniforms, rifles, etc... , but it became a source of pride that Marines (even scumbag recruits ) could make-do and overcome. Quick question- when did they survey the old "Trop" uniforms?

When I was 18 yrs old and Korean War was raging, I went to Parris Island for Marine boot....we learned the hard way by WW2 DIs...if you didn't pick it up the first time, corporal punishment was in vogue and that opened your eyes fast, not to screw up...I was in "M" Co 4th Recruit Training Bn...the last row of WW2 quonset huts on road to the Rifle Range...my Senior DI was SSGT Slater...Jr DIs were Cpl Payson [a real SOB]..I think he hated himself...Cpl King and PFC Guance...none of us ever received a compliment and the day we boarded the buses for our 10 day Boot leave...the DIs were there to bid us "sayonara" with every derogatory slam and racial slur..DIs were hated in those days, but the light went on in our heads being on the Marine MLR months later, that those "hated" DIs saved our asses...they did a great job and killing America's enemies was no problem at all; whatever, I achieved in my lifetime, it all started with joining up with the United States Marine Corps [the greatest adventure of my life]...I love being a United States Marine:marine: :marine:

Screamin, hard-core A-holes that they were, they turned this turd into something I will never regret. Ever.

Weight loss program? 270 the moment I hit the footprints, 15 September 1978 - 193 when I got home 13 December 78. Weak as a cat, but tougher than steel. Tried to send me to the 'fat boy PLT'. I was sent back for being too motivated.

I fuc**d up Guide in 1st phase, and paid DEARLY for it the remainder of boot camp. In final drill tho....... I marched as 1st squad leader, cause he couldn't march for squat.

And, I am proud to say, that 2 of my Boot Camp Brothers- are still Active - in the Michigan Army National Guard - as Federal Civil Service Technicians - after 25 years. They run the Aviation Maintenance portion of the Facility we all worked at - in one point in our careers.

I thought I had done this but I guess not. I went to Paradise Island on 2Sept69 with platoon 1033 and then was dropped and picked up a week later by Platoon 1039 and we graduated on 10 Nov.1969 what a memorial day,Graduation from boot camp on the Marine Corps Birthday. To this day I still cannot remember my Drill Instructors names or their ranks. I do remember that the Senior Drill Instructor was a dark green Marine. Sgt.Matt U.S.M.C.1969-1975

Hey Bones,
I read a post you did about Snipers. I think the article was written by Gooch.
I served with Gooch, and possibly you as well. I was at Quantico as a 12, building Sniper Rifles , Pistols and help with Marksmanship instruction. Do we know each other? I tried to PM you, but got a error message.

Grad. 1 Aug 1973

Platoon 1083 July-Oct 76. 13 weeks (give or take a day or two). Our platoon got all but two of their "awards", setting two Regimental records in the process. S/Sgt Knox became "Series Gunny" near the end of 2nd phase. Asst.DI was Tai Kwon Do champ of the base. Don't remember his name right now. Stocky dark green Marine. D.I. Sgt McCarthy was a little red-headed grunt. Tough as nails red neck. Co-owned a VW with another DI. DI sgt Pennypacker was transferred over from a sister platoon during third phase. Tried to break us fer whipping his first platoon all thru boot. Finally gave up and walked away laughing that Friday night. Our first jubior DI walked into the gear locker with a 6'5" fat body the first week of 1st phase. Sounded like a tornado for a couple minutes, then got real quiet. DI staggered out, leaned against the door post, and had one of the recruits go get help. Never saw either the fat body or the junior DI again. Never did remember his name.

gave up honor man blues so Upham (who had at least 2 kids and was 10 years older than me) could start out with more pay. Proud to have done it and SDI SSgt. McCormick said I could have said no and kept the honor man roll... hell no!
Honor and doing the right thing mean more than a set of blues and crossed rifles... which I got later anyway.

God bless the Marine Corps!
