I had a DS whose name tape was upside down and no one said anything. After a formation I went up with a battle buddy, outside of platoon ears and said (at parade rest) "Drill Sergeant; I didn't know if anyone pointed out, but your name tape is upside down." He bellowed to the rest of the platoon "WHO THE F-- SAW MY NAME TAPE AND DIDNT SAY SH--". I stood at parade rest watching a lot of collective push-ups. Only time I ever had a DS use the words "Carry on, Private." with any kind of gratitude. Got all tingly inside.

Why do I get the feeling that DS did that on purpose? Lol!

CMSgt Patrick Dilling - Assuming the Major actually knew about it, at that moment you showed more leadership as a TSgt than a field grade officer. It's no surprise you eventually became a Chief.

During my time in Basic Training, each stairwell landing was assigned a
Fire Watch Guard each night we were sleeping in the Barricks, and only certain individuals were permitted in after hours. One night a 2Lt decided that he would inspect the platoon.
He was not on the list of permitted individuals and after being told by the Fire Watch Guard that he was not on the list, he decided to go any way. Upon which the Fire Watch Guard laid a Entrenching Tool across the 2Lt's FACE. The Btl Cdr was going to place charges on the Private until the Btl 1st SGT showed up and informed the Cdr that the Pvt was following Orders and would NOT be held responsible. The 2Lt was never seen in the Battlion again.

Is this right forum to admit when I was a PFC/SPC I used to walk around, ate up with hands in my pockets just to make the NCOs go ballistic? Fond memories.

LTC (Join to see) - If it was against formal regs, I wouldn't have done it, but we were infantry, and I thought it ridiculous that we couldn't let our boots touch grass, at least according to a few SNCOs (I think all from the drill field) who made it their primary duty to keep Marines on the sidewalks. This was the exact same grass on which we stood formation, but somehow, once the formation was over, this was hallowed ground until the next formation.

Yea. But it's more like " Psst. SGT your, your boot lace." And then I stick em with a thumbs up.

They need positive reinforcement too.

We had a butter bar straight from the Point. He had a habit of browbeating us in front of other officers. My squad got sick of it. So...
Whenever he did it, we'd wait until he laid his cover down, grab it and turn his butter bar sideways like a gold minus sign.
He got the message.
