Personal Memories

Best Friends
Me - second row from bottom, third in from the right

Best Moment
There were a couple of NCO going through OCS with me.  One of them made GySgt while in school.  Sr. Drill Instructor congratulated him, Company Commander razed him and told him to forget it if he was going to be an officer.

While I was at Quantico is the only time I have been on helicopters.

The Black Watch SGT MAJ exchange instructor.

The obstacle and conficdence course



Worst Moment
The Comany Commander was not at all happy I was there and did everything he could to let me know it.  I was a PFC and he called me his Private F$#%&# Civilian and that was were I belonged since I was not an NCO already.

The grinder, I passed out

My broken foot.  It finally allowed the Company Commander to get rid of me.

The Sr. Drill Instructor knew me from San Diego and kept a special eye on me.

The SGT, our other Drill Instructor, was gentle, not like those in Basic Training.
