29 Pictures Of Marine Drill Instructors Screaming In People’s Faces

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Brings back memories. Not all of them bad either. Here’s a sample:

Drill Instructor

When I was at OCS, there was a candidate named Scanlon that was always getting yelled at. Scanlon never made it through the program, but I can still remember the Platoon Sergeant yelling: “Scanlon! Sometimes I think you were sent here from another planet just to torment me!”

There was another guy in my squad that started laughing at that one. He got his shit jumped like I never saw before.

There is a photo in that collection that shows a DI using the knife hand. We used to do parodies of the knife hand at night in the squad bay. You had to be careful even then. The Platoon Sergeant did not think that imitation was the sincerest form of flattery.

Anyway, go check it out.

They’re conducting a poll over at Rolling Stone.

Only a few people are getting the answer correct.

Again all you have to do is press this button to hear the best Rolling Stones song. And like one commenter said, the poll is asking for the best Rolling Stones song, not your favorite.
