    sgt conboy upon getting first haircut said. ” you have no hair on the head of your dick so if suzy rottencrotch does not like because you have no hair on your head she’s not worth it.”

    Staff Sgt. Gardner, Sgt. Cobb, and Sgt. Rivera stopped by the hut and said, “C’mon, girls, you’re going swimming”. It was hot summer day at boot camp in San Diego and I thought a swim would be great. We lined up, were led to a sand pit, told to lay on our bellies, and swim. Sand was flying everywhere. Lesson: don’t believe everything you’re told!!!

    “Sir, I forgot” when I forgot to do something in close order drill. Platoon Commander S/Sgt Borgoius, “What if I forgot to take you to chow? You’d be a starvin’ ragin’, idiot”.
