any good boot camp stories?







One guy farted pretty loud and we all had to inhale, run outside, and exhale like 6 times to get rid of the asshole smell.

this is fucking beautiful. 

Boot is just one big mind game and it’s really funny once you’re out and you think about all the weird shit.  Every bug you step on is your DIs pet and I had to try to “put together” like 10 cockroaches because I’d killed all of his precious pets.  

how many times did you have to find your boots from the pile in less than a minute though

one time our entire sections boots got thrown outside because our laces were wrong… so we all changed them but they got thrown out again. because our IC and 2IC agreed on 2 different standards. went back and forth for about a week 

We came out of the G&S building at K75 in Gagetown one day to find that all of our tac vests had been zipped to each other, all of our rucks had been buckled together, and that our helmets had been attached using the chinstrap and strung through the whole thing. We were given something like 3 minutes to sort it out and be formed up ready to leave. Good times.

Anyone ever take apart their racks and put them all into the shower room and then fit 200 dudes into 8 shitter stalls?

Every warrior needs his rest…

PT at the beach was badass. Felt like a BUD for a little bit.


From yesterday’s Boston Marathon…

"The man holding this flag lost a Marine son in Iraq. He tried to commit suicide on his 44th birthday after finding out his son was killed. His other son committed suicide. He was the man in the cowboy hat running along a wounded man, pinching his artery in his leg to keep that man from bleeding to death."

Mad respect for this man.
