He may have an interesting first few moments if he does. Doesn't matter what he wears though, because they will strip every hint of individuality from him systematically and in quick fashion from the moment the bus stops rolling. Any notions he may have of impressing his Drill Instructors will soon become fleeting reflections of better times. It could be worse though. When I went through Recruiter's School in San Diego 1984 they shared a story about another misinformed recruit. Seems a Recruiter from MA was having a hard month making quota so he got a tad creative with his sales pitch. The lad arrived at PI smartly dressed with a book satchel full of resource materials and school supplies. He was looking for the Registrar's Office so he could pick his classes while attending the USMC Community College of S. Carolina. "Close your eyes for a moment Johnny. You are on a scenic sunny island near Hilton Head. The palm trees are gently blowing in the breeze as you enter into your educational pursuits...." And we can figure out the rest. Thanks for sharing.

Ah, the list of things that others do to you while attending Marine Corps boot camp;

1. Birthday/Christmas/ whatever card that has a electronic speaker thingy in it that plays a tune when you take the card out of the envelope (Just shoot me why don't cha?)

2. Cigarettes..come on man!

3. Five pounds of chocolate fudge Guess who had to pay for that? Squad leaders and Guide in the showers with hot water on while doing flutter kicks and cramming fudge into our mouths...urp..I think I puked three times...it might have been four...

4. Something sent to the Drill Instructors thanking them for turning you into a "Marine". I believe five of us took out a hit contract on Anderson's Mother.

5. Letters with cute little SWAK written on it or lipstick kisses. I swear to the almighty himself, I will scalp you with a pair of toe nail clippers next time I see you!

6. The wrong rank put in front of your name on a letter...Ha ha, very funny arshole! Like putting Major Stover, K.S. on the envelope address wasn't going to bring heat down on me...Ha, Ha. I'm shoving a boot brush into your ars via your nostril when I see you next.

7. A letter to the Depot stating you have not written your dear old grandmother in three weeks, she just does not know what is going on since the last letter. (I'm training Grand ma, just leave it at that...sheeezzzz!)

I'm sure there are many more, these are just some of the things I witnessed while relaxing at MCRDSD. What fun!
