1972 MCRD San Diego. We had been promised whomever shot expert at the range could call home. So, when we left the rifle range at Camp Pendleton and moved to Onofre for infantry training, our SDI had us climb Mount Motherfvcker and yell "here home, here home" while the rest of the platoon was sitting in formation down at the bottom smoking, laughing, and drinking water from their canteens. Gotta love those DI's for keeping their promises!
Back at the depot, one of our junior DI's would have his girlfriend (Sweetpea) drive her vehicle up to one of the fences. He would have us sit in a school circle while they smoked and chatted. Sweetpea always made it a point to wear the skimpiest outfit she could fit into (normally cutoff jeans, flipflops, and a tube top or halter top). I dreamed about Sweetpea many nights while at recruit training (as did everyone else I'm sure). Wish they had put a photo of her in our platoon yearbook.
There are at least a hundred other bootcamp stories I could tell...

These Stories are great...Sweetpea, love it!! I remember my son telling me he saw his Killhat's wife at graduation and his 3 kids, and he said "She was so pretty and his kids were so cute, not how I pictured his personal life at all...I pictured him alone, in a trailor, cleaning his gun 24/7" maybe the way he said, but I thought that was funny. Keep the stories coming, I love hearing them!
