Get ready for the sand fleas at PI. One bit me on the top portion of the ridge of my nose - right between my eyes one day while standing at attention during formation. Still have the scar. Those little sucker are killers. I wanted so bad to slap that thing off my face, but fear of the DI's and learning my military bearing was uppermost in my mind at that moment. Plus, I was just too exhausted by that point to gather up anymore strength to do anything else - other than that required.
My drill instructors use to say something along the lines of:
"leave that sand flea alone pirvate - they have to eat too."
Summertime is the best time on Parris Island! Like Jchristin said the sand fleas, no wait, The Sand Fleas(capitalize Sand Fleas, they've earned a title too). There's also the HEAT. Whatever you weigh now take twenty pounds off that's how much weight you'll lose, AT LEAST that much. When your in the chow hall eat every thing on your tray, if you have time. Time is short in the chow halls so sit down and start shoveling, you need the calories. Also hydrate constantly. D.I.s are good at making sure you drink enough(as a matter of fact the D.I.s can make it into a game:yes: )but drink more! DRINK WATER, if you can get to it. hydrate, hydrate,hydrate. Oh yeah, before I go HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA have FUN on our Island!!!! Just kidding, good luck on Parris Island. If you can manage to remember what you're there for, as unbelievable as it sounds, you can have fun there. It's all in your attitude!
*leans to his buddy"psst, I told him he can have FUN there!" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH*
