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!"

On a quiet Sunday afternoon approximately 4 weeks into Basic Training, my Drill Sergeant was on duty and he and I had an interesting conversation...  He spoke, I replied with a lound and thunderous "HOOAH Drill Sergeant"

"PVT Deters, in the Army, EVERYONE is a leader.... even YOU.  There are only 2 differences between you and I or you and the Commander with regards to leadership - Rank and experience.  There will be many times when you will be compelled to make  leadership decisions even as a Private.  When preparing for that decision remember this:  Only make decisions that can be enforced with your current rank or experience.  ~ DS Roland - FT Jackson SC, 1998

From that day until final Pass and Review, DS Roland would periodically say "2 Differences PVT Deters!"  Oh and did I mention that on this particular Sunday afternoon I was promoted from "You" or "Hey You" to PVT Deters?
