    Neg.... some guy got back in my unit from going UA for a year. Had to wear his old cammies... looked REALLY out of place and stupid. :dunno: . Maybe it's beacuse the digi is what i'm used to. Old camo reminds me too much of the army.

    So if you are a DI do you get automatically promoted to SSgt?

    At the end it all came together and it felt like family and home. I pushed myself there more than anything I have done in my life.

    insdav, the giraffe on the top row, was his neck really that long or is the picture just messed up? If his neck is really like that, did the DI's give him shit about it? I can just imagine the things they'd do :rofl:.

    Only my Senior was an E-6.

    You can goto DI school if your a Cpl. if you graduate you'll be meritoriously promoted to Sgt. You have to be a SSgt to be a Senior. I can't remember the exact term for it but on the drill field your promotions are non competitive. If you rate it you'll get it so you pick up real fast out there.

    They are assigned to do certain things. Platoons will have usually 3 DI's. 1 will be the 'teacher' who teaches you how to do everything. Another will be your kill hat who always takes you to the pit or 1/4. Your senior will be your daddy... do what daddy tells you and you'll be somewhat okay. Go against daddy and you're fucked and his sidekicks will love him for that. All of my fucking DIs didn't do their jobs ...well they did.... and just loved to fuck us up instead. I think they were all ex-kill hats anyway because they worked that shit to a profession.
