Talk about weird. Just happened to type in one of my DIs last name on Facebook and found him. He added me as a friend and we had a good little chat about what we have been up to. Felt so damn weird! Just thought I'd share!

I tracked down my SDI after several years worth of google searches. I tracked him down to a church that he is a member of and verified that it was indeed him by looking at photos on the website.

We've swapped emails over the past year now - it's like finding a lost family member!

The feeling was the correct one, "pretty damn weird".

I have to assume that he didn't realize that or it didn't hit him. Having spent a total of 7.5 years training recruits I can assure you that the E4 rank shown on your post would never have been attained, and that no corpsman in the world could have extracted that scrub brush from your ass if he had known.
Hate the Man respect the Rank!

If we would have thrown something at our DI's we would have it shoved down our throats big time.

Maybe, but the court-martial wouldn't have been.

I knew i was going to get some responses, it must be taboo or some **** to speak out loud about some DI's. But alot you hated them with a passion and some of them you have alot of respect for. <br />

Marine let the cat out of the bag, we are only human including the DI's.

Sorry can't take your side on that no matter what the situation. Trust me I did some crazy and rotten things as a "hat" that I am sure the recruits would want to fire something at me...thankfully for both of us that never happened. He would have been maimed, and I in the brig. done deal!

In Boot Camp as Marine Recruits we are at that time supposed to fear the DIs and respect them. They are supposed to do some crazy stuff to us all at that time as Recruits. That is what makes life long storys of Boot Camp all about. If anyone of us meet our DIs or Platoon mates in the zone, we would fight to the death to protect each other and that goes for the DIs as well. The DIs would also fight to protect their Recruits that they trained to be a Marine, regardless of rank. That is the true spirit of the Corps, every Marine knows.
