    • God I’ll never forget this one guy in basic. We were at the chow hall and the drill sergeant came over to this kid in line.He told the kid to sing the army song. He apparently didn’t know the actual army song and instead sang the army song they use in the commercial. It was so funny lol

    • If you do go into the military be sure to do your college online for free while you're in. That way when you get out you can pursue your masters for free with your GI Bill and spend your 20s out of debt. Just some advice from a veteran.

    • For those of you wondering a drill sergeant is supposed to hate on you for literally everything. I once stuttered while talking to one and he mocked me and told me to speak clearly. I held a door for one and they threatened me, said thank you to another and they yelled at me. That just how they are
