    A sentimental favorite! Nabors’ talent is under-rated.

    Haha. “ah? You couldn’t scare a bunny rabbit.” Carter had quite a way of dealing with Pyle. I member as a child I asked my dad (Vietnam vet U.S.M.C.) “There’s no way a guy like Gomer could ever really be a Marine?” He said Believe it or not, there’s one in every platoon. Perhaps he exaggerated, but the point is there. God bless the corps.

    @themanfromwyoming you mean “shazam” ?

    I think the policy now is deffinately kill the drill instructor.

    The reasoning for that is because we kill muslims and todays drill instructor is a big black muslim.

    It’s not the same army it was when Pyle was a soldier.

    to all fellow jar-heads:who has ever heard a gunny call the troops “nitwits” and “knuckleheads”? Or say “move it move move it” for that matter? I remember hearing friendy suggestions to “get the lead out of your asses” and some other colorful phrases, and some even more colorful names and questions about our parentage!

    Yes, and I’m sure a real Marine DI would be so patient and so… um… not screaming loud enough to rupture a human eardrum.
