    For Socrates

    This is for my bro Socrates. I wrote him last night to wish him the best and give him some last words of advice before taking off to SD for boot. He wrote back right before he took of this morning so at least I know that he got it. I dunno..this may seem knda wierd but I thought it would be cool if we could have a sticky for the entire 13 weeks hes gone..i think it would mean alot to him when he gets back. We could just write somethin in here every once in a while so when he gets back he knows were thinkin bout em. I thought it woulda been cool if they did that when i went....:rofl: no such luck. anyways what do you think? 13 week sticky for our fellow service member?

    That's a nice gesture and all, but seriously, it's just boot camp.

    This will be a recurring sticky whenever we have a Barracks frequent poster do something incredibly stupid...like getting shipped off to Basic for a few weeks. :noes: :mamoru: :noes:

    Post up your horror stories, funny shit, good times, bad times, etc from Basic.

    It's 7:50 am here right now, and Socrates has already done more today than I will do before I go to bed tonight - and he's been yelled at more so far today than I will be for the next month or two at least! :rofl:

    well its 1615 over at MCRD san diego. socrates is probably scared shitless or thinks its a joke..because the receiving DI's are usually alot more chill than the ones you get on "black friday" :rofl: He's probably eating evening chow..well hes probably at least sitting in there staring at his food that they wont let him eat:rofl: life is shitty there...the beginning sucks....it feels soooooo far away. hell be back though.. swear if he comes back early hes getting permabanded.

    It's one of your first real experiences with true DI's and it's scary shit. They line up and get introduced to you... and then the officer goes away and your Senior DI is like... "Drill Instructor's there all yours." And everyone is like... oh shit.

    that pretty much sums it up.

    black friday sucked but honestly, it wasnt that big of a deal to me. i think i was in so much shock or something..i dont know. it was wierd. i remember us all standing on line and the DI's just going crazy...but they werent that impressive or something..like it didnt click yet or something. i got caught talking and knda smiling to another recruit and the DI put my gortex top over my head...like it was hanging on the rack. i just knda stood there in darkness ...i couldnt believe where i was etc etc. some other recruit couldnt stop laughing and the DI's were going crazy..they kept pouring water over his head and shit. it ended up being the last time this kid laughed. he did end up a squad leader though. anyways..yeah. Tday 1 is coming soon.
