Our Drill Sgt was a freak when it came to DnC and taught us a 21 count DnC movement for the DnC competition. He had his degree in psychology so he was all about messing with peoples heads. He didn't WAIT to show it on the DnC field, he made us do it as we marched by ALL the other platoons on the way to the DnC field. Lets just say I saw a few jaws dropped, including by NCO's. =-P
My most memorable experience was trying to tell my TI that I thought I'd severly injured my ankles because I was in a lot of pain. She blew me off and thought I was trying to get out of PT. So I pushed through for another week and a half until I could barely walk and they were the size of grapefruits. When she noticed, she panicked and sent me to the hospital. As it turned out, I had actually fractured my ankles. BOTH of them. Her face was priceless.
good boot camp story! how'd you fracture your ankles anyway?
No one could ever nail down the exact when and how. My guess is that at some point during week4, I must have snapped them when trying to get through gravel with heavy packs. I know there were several times I twisted my ankles that week, but who knows
My experience was at an AFROTC summer training camp which admittedly is not as rough as the usual boot camp (or at least wasn't in those days). Two other cadets and I shared a room in an old barracks with a closet that had a sliding door. Our training officer was a spit and polish type of officer who did everything by the book. During one of our room inspections he decided to check the closet to make sure our clothes were hung properly. As we stood by our beds at attention, he marched over to the closet. and stood straight as an arrow in front of the closet with the tips of his highly polished shoes touching the wall at the base of the closet. As if he was starting a salute, he brought his right arm up, placed his fingers on the edge of the sliding door and very smartly and with force, gave the door a shove to the left. Instead of opening the door jumped off the track and landed on his shoes. He wasn't hurt but his shoes had two very un-military scuff marks. Without saying a word he left. On future inspections he ordered one of us to open the closet door for inspection.

So I just came back from one of my worst interviews. Every aspect of my resume was picked apart and attacked. I have a university degree in Psychology prior to studying accounting - and this seemed to do more harm than good. I was also told I look 'argumentative' and like the type of person...
