MIL Oh God. The mental image is just unbearable....

    A Marine recruit collapsed on a dirt trail. A corpsman, her medical bag bouncing in the dust, hustled to the fallen man.

    The recruit was bathed in sweat, his face clammy and sickly green. As the troop column marched on, the drill instructor cried out, "Here comes the silver bullet!"

    The recruit was about to receive the ultimate indignity: a shiny rectal thermometer to check his body temperature. It happened on the trail for all to see: Pants down. Buttocks bared.

    The column kept moving.

    It was the final day of the Crucible, a three-day ordeal in the foothills of Camp Pendleton. If a recruit survives the Crucible, the midpoint of the 13-week boot camp, he likely will survive to graduation.

    drink water and that shit dont happen.... had mothafukrs in Iraq try to go out on patrol with soda.:ugh2:(infantry, not Psyop)... watch them get ripped at the pre mission briefs. How are you gonna not bring some water on a 12-14 hour patrol in 130+ heat wearing body armor? All in all in a year I only saw a handfull of guys go down as heat casulties.

    So, is sticking a thermometer up your butt a common practice in the Marines. Vice, say a oral thermometer or some other alternative?

    Rectal temp is an actual core body temp, while oral is just that, oral and not a core body temp. And its also a mind game thing, people see that they'll hydrate. Same with sticking people in the ass with 1.2 million units of bicellin when they come in with Syphilis, we can give them pills, but if I give them that shot, they aint gonna be coming back with another STD anytime soon. :mamoru:

    the silver bullet isnt a thermometer... it is when they put the i.v. bag tube in your ass and then squeeze it, the i.v. fluid is absorbed throught the rectum, and rehydrates faster than intraveniously... it is for extreme cases of dehydration.... i saw the o.p. put silver bullet= thermometer and thought it was a typo... I just wanted to clear that up. At least what I just described is what I have always seen and heard. Any one else hear it this way?

    Accord seems to think it is ok to masturbate in close proximity of other guys...there is nothing wrong with the Marines.
