    So that MSgt is messed up.
    Thats what I thought--As a former M/sgt myself, I know his type-"I am a Top , I know it all" shoot, as I got older I realised how much I didn't know..I was always open to ideas from the troops..

    Did you look at the last post I made, Cava? The UH-1Y Venom will be an upgrade of the venerable UH-1N.

    I would absolutely love to meet one of these guys IRL to have a drink and see what they're like away from the barracks.

    Thanks for your effort.

    I've actually run into all of my DI's a few years after boot camp. It was pretty intimidating at first, but in general they are pretty cool guys on the outside.

    The Corps has the way boot camp needs to go and how DI needs to be to make Marine very well figured out. Part of the Job of DI, is preforming as a DI should. Inside they are just regular Marines doing their job. It takes a while for a boot to figure that out. Heck if he stays in long enough, he may be the DI that his boots are trying to figure out.

    when you meet the person who has yelled at you for over two month time frame later in life you still get that feeling when you hear the person voice oh crap i done something wrong ..

    but after the basic training or boot camp you learn that they are regular people just like you..and they have familys and kids and other things that makes them human ,,

    my drill sergeant lived three house down from me on one post ..how i knew this was that he knocked my door and ask my wife if i was going to a section of base in the morning and could catch a ride for his truck had broken down and was in shop for repair ..

    my wife called me to the front door and i had this look on my face like you f---wad ...my wife ask me what was wrong and i told her .. he was my fromer drill sergeant in basic training ..he did not even remember me when i told him that he was drill sergeant ..he came back with our group picture and showed my wife the group photo of all us that was take dureing basic training..

    i found out that he was a just a regular guy doing a job and after a few weeks of rideing togerther we would talk about the boot camp and some of the things that came up ..he would laugh and say that things where screwed up as regular way of life..

    when i left the post ..he was going back to beening a drill sergeant for him and his wife like the hours and he was never left the area where she had family ..
