When you're 18 or 19, the ONLY way to get through to them is to scream right into their face.

The DI's not bashing the guys heads in, so he must be soft. If you're going in you'd better get ready to get yelled a a few times.

I think any form of physical training can be improved by singing. My favorite would be children's songs, such as "Alouette":

Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tÍte
Je te plumerai la tÍte
Et la tÍte, et la tÍte
Alouette, Alouette
O-o-o-o-oh
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

Of course, when they get tired, they should be 'encouraged' to sing louder. Also, I'd be partial to take requests.

Well my uncle went through boot camp in the late 60's and he said it was hell and he would never wish that upon anybody. Three years ago a buddy of mine went in and he said is was easy as cake. They changed the whole struture of it now and they really made it quite lame from what I hear.

They used to be. I do not know if they are anymore. It has gotten to where the touchy-feely crowd has made hard0core training maned near impossible. We can't hurt anybody' feelings or self-esteem, you know. When my brother went into basic for the Navy 8-10 years ago, he told me they got issued "stress" cards. If the instructor stressed them out, they handed him their card. This prevented him from messing with him for 10 minutes. I told my brother I, personally, would kick the poop out of him if I heard he used his. I'm sure the guys in Vietnam would like to had those to hand to the VC.

Yeah the military has softened it up alot in the years. They can't hit or push or even poke at a recruit and they don't even like them yelling at them (although I don't think the DS care that much about those rules )

They dont have to hit or touch the recruits...mind games will do the job. Take a look at SEAL training...

Yeah my neighbor was in the Army in the 60s, they'd hit you right in the top of the head with their zippo (Like fling it open, holding it by the lid) if you were sleeping during one of the classes.

A DI even bonked me HARD on the top of my shaved head with the heavy base of a glass while I was in boot camp for accidentally stepping in front of him in the chow hall. I never even saw him, I had forgotten how to look anywhere but straight ahead.

I went through Air Force bootcamp back in 1980--and it wasn't too bad. It was around that time that rules were being implemented so far as not hitting recruits and stuff like that.

I realize that "head games" are a part of the training, but I don't think a DI should be given a license to beat the crap out of someone.

From what I've read, boot camp is a lot easier in many of the branches now. I don't know about the Marines--but I'd still bet it's ten or 20 times as hard as Air Force, Army, or Navy basic training.
