DS (SFC) Roland, 6' 6", 245 lbs. (and not an ounce of fat on him) said one of the most memorable and smartest things I've ever heard:
"Privates, I hope you joined for the right reasons 'cause the Army ain't easy and no matter how much you love the b***h, she ain't ever going to love you back."
-- "Privates, look around you. Most of you will go to war, some of you will not come back. Don't get too close"
-- When a soldier couldn't pass a PT test but could shoot 40/40 everytime, soldiers would point out the fact that he was fat and a DS overheard this and said, " I would take a fat guy that can shoot over a skinny guy that can run, ANY day!"
-- "Never lose your weapon!"
