Does everyone remember their Drill Sergeants?
Hello to Sgt. Easterling and Sgt. Daybell on Memorial Day from B-4-3, Fort Ord, California, September 1974.
Shoes shined? Check.
Gig line straight? Check.
Extra brasso on the belt buckle? Check.
Dropping for twenty for old times sake. 1, 2, 3, 4…
The men running boot camp in 1974 were Vietnam guys who stayed in to make the Army better.
…5, 6, 7, 8…
Well done, fellas. Very memorable. You were truly bad-assed.
…9, 10, 11, 12…
Did any of those Range Masters ever calm down?
…13, 14, 15, 16…
Have any other trainees mentioned you?
…17, 18, 19, 20.
If they have, then they must have said you ran the tightest platoons each cycle.
It was an honor to serve in your Army.
