Way relaxed is pretty strong phrasing it all depends on what company you are in.

"Army Infantry basic and Marine recruit trainng/basic are fairly interchangable, there are minor differances such as acronyms, length, etc etc..

That being said, DI's or DS are there to motivate you, train you, teach you and weed you out before you get others killed. Your feelings are not important, your just another number and its nothing personal. No they cant hit you anymore but they will make you wish they had."


The Marine Corps would have had to soften up pretty drastically for that to be true, but I doubt it has. The basic rifle and the pay grades were about the only interchangeable thing years ago. And DI's were never allowed to hit you, but that never stopped them. I have a scar on my eyebrow to prove it, from the being hit with the front site ears of an m-16 because of a poor drill execution.
One will never know unless they take that plunge and become part of that elite brotherhood. There is a reason for the saying "The Few, The Proud". And I mean no disrespect to any other branch and I thank you all for your service to this great country.

Indeed I know plenty of Marines who went into the army and vice versa. They are plenty different.

This is not a place for debates regarding the issues that were being discussed. This thread was not intended for a debate and the posts had nothing to do with the initial post. PRC is politics religion and controversy. That is where the debate needs to take place, not in this thread.

Our platoon had stress cards... Usually 52 of them. Jokers were for extra stress.

EDIT: that was in the fleet, not boot. And as we all know, that is always a "volunteer" workout haha.

If you think they can't beat you or throw you down the stairs at Parris Island still, your very much mistaken. "Be the one to tell"
