    I met a guy once who looked just like Peyton Manning and his name was Donny Osmond.
    It was in Fayetteville, R Kansas

    In boot camp, I ripped all the skin of the inside of my right palm on a pull up bar. The corpsman put some purple chemical on it ( still don't know what that shit was)
    In any event it hardened the soft tissue and allowed my hand to heal. the DI told me that the navy haf ruined my sex life.

    Had one of them too

    My favorite was anytime we had one of those back woods racist MO fo's we would make him battle buddies with the biggest black dude we could find.

    I remember when I was in basic a mere 26 years ago, we had a dude whose head was so big he couldn't fit in the steel pot liner, so he wore the steel pot with a washcloth stuffed in the top and a chin strap. Drill Sergeants called him My Favorite Martian. He fell asleep in every block of instruction, ended up in the soft chair in back of the classroom.

    Then there was the dude who snuck out of the 2nd floor barracks window to go to the vending machine across the street, got caught, and was forever known as Spider-motherfucking-man. Every time there was a break he had to act like he was crawling a wall.

    Because a&m keeps finishing the season so much better than we do? Oh wait, they don't. It must be because they keep beating us head to head? Nope that's not it. Maybe it's because for some of you guys the grass will ALWAYS be greener.

    I was in basic 26 years ago as well! Shane mentioned the utility closet earlier but I think it was in reference to his active duty barracks. I volunteered for it based on a dude I trusted and couldn't have been happier. I had a 4x10 floor and sink to take care of while everybody else had the entire building. I wouldn't take dirty tools back and always had the top rating for my "box". Learned to trade services - shirts folded properly for shiny boots etc...what a great experience. We did have some greenhorns that couldn't get out of their own way and the ones that made it all ended up guarding missile silos in Minot.

    It's amazing how fast time flies. Now I have LTs and CPTs that weren't even born when I was in basic training in good ole Fort Leonard Wood. I've gone from a snot nosed, no nothing PVT to Iron Major. What a journey it's been.

    I'm a veteran, but as a pediatrician, do not have near the stories you guys do. Thanks for you efforts, commitment, and service.
