Getting "The Business"

This pic is great for so many reasons.

It's of a Drill Instructor at OCS running a bunch of civilian business students from some college through the wringer. I don't know how long they had to do this but from the looks of all the bags, it probably was more than a day or two.

Notice how the DI is quite literally "off his feet" he's yelling so hard.

But the classic visuals are the students. On the left, notice the guy looking at the DI's target. The guy has the classic "Dude, you're fucked. Better you than me" look.

Then there's the Asian guy who looks like he's been there 3 seconds and that's two seconds too long. He has the look of a poor soul who is going to have a harder day than the rest once the DI gets a gander at him.

The guy beside him is another classic, known as "Scared Stiff." I'll take 10 to 1 odds that guy's blowing mud.

    Sucks to be them!
    Anybody who has been on the receiving end of that type of treatment can testify to that.
    You went through it twice didn't you Captain? Once in 1987 and once in college?

    Yeah. Bootcamp in 1987 (3 months) and then OCS in 1993 (6 weeks).

    And it did suck to be them.

    O, As a minor you should not read this.

    **RATED NC-17 for foul language**

    Bootcamp (1987) for me too. I can still hear this high pitched Phillipino voice. Looking me straight in the chest (he was really short) and shouting at the top of his lungs: "DICKHEAD!!!! YOU BETTER GODAMOTHERFKN DROP AND GODAMOTHERFKN GIVE ME GODAMOTHERFKN FIFTY!!! DICKHEAD!!!"
