Personal Memories

Worst Moment
Gas Chamber when the guys both in front and behind me decided they were getting out faster than I could move and the door was blocked...

Senior Drill Sgt SFC Valentine, Drill Sgt (SSG) Scott, Drill Sgt (SSG) Linderman


Other Memories
Drill Sgt Scott Tap dancing on a Rattle snake during a Road March, Later found out it was a planted dead snake that had been place there for our benefit.... A mind game...
