    Read the book Yellow Footprints by Jack Shipman. I went through PI the same year he did (1969), but he does an OUTSTANDING job of describing the entire 8-week hell that started with a bunch of raw civilians standing on those HUGE yellow footprints.

    I'll carry the memory to the day that I die.

    p.s. For your 30 years in the Corps, total respect, and my sincerest thanks for your service. Way above and beyond.

    My favorite line

    "Only after you eat the peanuts out of mysheeeeeeit"

    Thinking back on my 6 years, I ran across some person who emulated each character in the movie.
