As a Pfc in the US Army, the quote from my sergeants that stands out in my memory is: “Don’t let me catch you doing that again”.
Favorite Drill Instructor quotes, which I am sure most Marines heard at one time or another, whether at Parris Island or San Diego:
1. “If I want any sh!t out of you, I’ll chop the top of your head off and scoop it out.”
2. “Get over here, maggot”.
3. “My grandmother (does whatever) better than you, and she’s been dead for five years.”
4. “”The best part of you ran down your father’s leg.” and the all-time best, the introduction to the Marine Corps:
5. “I have 12 weeks to undo everything your mother did to you for eighteen years.”
Feel free to add your “remembrances”.
